Photo rejuvenation and IPL Treatments in Ottawa
IPL Photofacials can help with:
- Sun damage and sun spots
- Age spots
- Facial redness
- Pore size
What can I expect during a treatment session?
You will receive a consultation with our Skin Care & IPL Specialist to discuss about your medical history and your concerns. After the consultation, you will receive an “IPL patch test”: we use the pulse-light at 3 different levels (low-medium-high) to evaluate how your skin reacts. Why? We want to ensure that you receive the right and safe setting for your skin, but we also want you to achieve results faster (and safer). Once we determined the setting for your skin type, your skin is cleansed, and a gel is applied to the treatment area. After eye shields are placed for protection, the skin is then treated with gentle pulses of light in combination with our cooling system.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients require a series of 4 to 6 treatments performed at four weeks apart. Some patients may require additional treatment sessions depending on the condition the skin and their desired results.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime associated with IPL photofacial treatments and most patients will be able to resume normal activity. Some patients may experience mild redness and swelling for 1-2 days. Targeted spots may appear darker immediately after treatment; these will flake or peel off a few days post-treatment. However, your skin will have an increased sensitivity to the sun, so be sure to use additional sun protection (SPF) on your skin.
