IPL Photofacials to Get Rid of Sun Damage

IPL, Calgary, ABThis is the time of year that we start looking and assessing our skin. Do we have damage from the sun such as sunspots, texture issues, or fine lines? Though we love summer, it can really wreak havoc on our skin. Thankfully, winter is a great time to treat our skin and get it back to its glowing, youthful look. Hyperpigmentation and sunspots no longer have to be accepted: we have an option that can help you get back your beautiful skin.

If you’ve tried everything, then it’s time to learn about IPL photofacials and what they can do. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing treatment.

What is IPL?

IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light, and can also be called broadband light (BBL), photorejuvenation, or a photofacial. IPL treatments work similarly to laser resurfacing treatments, but they are actually not lasers. We utilize the M22 IPL to treat a myriad of skin issues, and we find that this treatment can offer stellar results, and with less recovery time than laser treatments. This is because IPL machines are able to vary the wavelengths of light they use. For example, IPL can be used to treat scars, rosacea, and dark marks on the skin.

Who is a good candidate?

If you suffer from any of the following, then IPL treatments might be a great fit for you:

●Brown and Red Spots

●Freckles

●Sun Damage

●Rosacea (enlarged facial blood vessels)

●Pigment Imperfections

●Spider Veins

●Redness

How long will results last?

The best results with IPL treatments do not come immediately. In fact, it may take a few months for you to see the most optimal results from your IPL treatments. If you’re looking for a quick fix, other treatments might be better for you. We do recommend IPL treatments for patients who are looking for stellar results, and who don’t mind that they may need to wait a little while to see the results. In fact, if you start your IPL treatments now, you’ll have improved skin by the time warmer weather comes around!
