    What is IPL Photorejuventation?

    Blotchy redness and brown pigmentation can leave your complexion looking aged and damaged. Non-invasive IPL Photorejuvenation is ideal for treating skin pigmentation and brown spots from sun damage and flushing symptoms from rosacea, targeting and correcting the irregular colour variations in the skin for an even skin tone. Press the reset button on your skin’s appearance—getting IPL Photorejuvenation in Ottawa can help you turn back the clock.

    Treatment & Technology in Ottawa

    To address pigmentation irregularities, IPL Photorejuvenation treatments apply flashes of broad-band light to the skin. The targeted colours absorb the light, vessels coagulate and pigment cells disperse. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience light redness and swelling. Over several days, irregular pigmentation can darken before the body clears the targeted cells, revealing an even complexion. Treatment sensation is likened to snaps of an elastic band with comfort interventions very rarely required. Maintenance treatments can keep progressive symptoms of rosacea at bay over the long term.

    It all starts with a simple consultation.

    Treatable Areas

    IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat the skin on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas on the body including arms and legs.

    What to Expect

    Call us

    A Personalized Assessment

    During a personalized assessment your treatment provider will work with you to create a treatment plan to meet your unique skin needs.

    Baseline Photography

    We will then take baseline photos for your patient file. These will be used to show you your results and serve as a reference over time.

    Review & Consent

    We will review our consent forms with you, making sure to answer any questions before proceeding with treatment.

    Proceed with Treatment

    After initial preparation (cleansing and the use of eye protection), your treatment provider will apply a cool gel to a portion of the skin surface. The chilled IPL handpiece will be moved over the surface of the skin, with each pulse delivering a bright flash of light with an accompanying “snapping” sensation (often referred as snaps of an elastic band).

    The feeling of pulsed light on your skin for the very first time can be a bit of a surprise—the initial pinching sensation causes some patients to flinch slightly! The treatment is not painful, however, patients may experience a sensation of diffused heat as the applicator glides over the skin. A smaller applicator tip is sometimes uses to treat smaller areas such as the sides/tips of nostrils.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long is a treatment?

    Treatment times range from 20 minutes (hands) to 2+ hours (full legs). A full-face treatment generally takes 45 minutes to complete.

    What does the treatment feel like?

    Patients may experience a “snapping” sensation (often referred to as snaps of an elastic band) with each pulse of light. The treatment is not painful. However, you may experience a sensation of diffused heat as the applicator glides over the skin. Comfort interventions are very rarely required.

    Do I need to take any special precautions before treatment?

    Avoiding sun tanning and self-tanning is imperative. Patients with melasma are not recommended to undergo IPL Photorejuvenation treatments at all.

    Can I resume my normal activities after treatment?

    Yes. However, it is not recommended to exercise on the same day as your treatment. Saunas, hot tubs, hot yoga and sun exposure are not recommended in the following 7 days.

    Are there any possible side effects?

    IPL is a safe procedure. Redness, darkening of pigment, slight swelling and heat are common and resolve quickly. Bruising, blisters, and burns are less common but may occur and resolve with time.

    When will I see results?

    You can expect to see a renewed complexion 10-14 days post-treatment. The benefits of IPL Photorejuvenation are long-term, however, healthy lifestyle choices and proper skincare (including daily sunscreen use) can help the longevity of your results.
