Photo rejuvenation is this season's must-have treatment

Everyone is looking for the best must-have skin treatment during the holiday season and photo rejuvenation is on the top of the list. Have you ever looked in the mirror and just thought your skin looked blah?

You may not be too sure as to what needs to be improved, but everything needs a boost, right?

It may be time for an IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatment, which will give you a more refreshed, brighter, and tighter looking skin.

Before and after IPL photo rejuvenationIn less than an hour, your skin can become more rejuvenated and more youthful without any prolonged down time.

During the treatment session, IPL delivers a pulse of light to the area of your skin that will stimulate collagen, improve skin texture, and will even out your skin tone which achieves a thoroughly refreshing look.

What Are The Benefits of IPL?

IPL Photo Rejuvenation can target the following condition:

  • Pigmentation imbalances (brown spots)
  • Rosacea and broken blood vessels
  • Stimulate collagen
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles,
  • Shrink enlarged pores
  • Mitigate acne bacteria

Which Areas of The Skin Can We Treat with IPL?

IPL laser treatments are safe to use on almost every body part:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest

What To Expect During The IPL Treatment

The entire treatment area is scanned with intense pulse light. You will experience minor heat and a temporary “snapping” sensation. The area is treated with multiple passes, and certain settings are customized according to the condition to be treated.

This pulse of light stimulation allows for the formation of new collagen, resulting in the repair of sun damaged skin and decreased fine lines.

What To Expect After The IPL Treatment

After the treatment, your skin may feel warm with slight erythema (e.g. pink skin.)

If we are treating brown spots, the pigment will begin to surface up to the skin and typically the spots will be reduced in 5 to 10 days.

If we are treating red and bluish blood vessels, the IPL will break it down and your body will metabolize it until it fades away.

If the vessels are small enough, they will disappear instantly.

Over the next few days and weeks, your skin will look younger, pores will become smaller and brighter, and you’ll have a more evened skin tone giving you that natural, beautiful, and healthy glow again.

How Many IPL Treatments Do I Need?

The number of treatments will depend on your individual skin goals and skin condition.

We recommend starting with a consultation, where your skin therapist can create a customized treatment plan for you.

Results are gradual and accumulative, therefore a series of treatments are ideal for optimal results.

Typically, 4 treatments are required, but more may be needed depending on the severity of the conditions.


After IPL treatments, make sure to protect your skin. Your treatments are an investment, and it is important to have a proper home care regime. Be sure to include a serum to continue targeting your skin concerns.

Be gentle with your skin after the treatment, don’t use acids or harsh exfoliation for at least one week before and after the treatment.

Most importantly, always wear sun protection with an SPF of at least 25. SPF is important even when it is cloudy outside, since UV rays are still penetrating the earth’s atmosphere.

After your treatment, simply follow these steps, and you’ll start to see your skin glow in no time!
