PhotoFacial (Photo Rejuvenation)

Photofacial with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Ottawa’s summers are as bright and sunny as our winters are cold and long. While it’s fun to enjoy those long, sunny days outside, at the beach, or on the patio, chronic exposure to UV rays can begin to take a toll on your skin. Fortunately for you, we have the answer. We are your number one destination for photo rejuvenation in Ottawa!*

Our Pulsed Light Photofacial service is specially designed to combat the visible effects of sun damage on your skin and is also an effective treatment of rosacea and hyperpigmentation. This treatment option is typically quick and efficient and may help target age spots, discolouration, broken capillaries, and other symptoms of UV exposure.*

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are a less intense, less invasive alternative to laser skin treatments. We use IPL’s broad spectrum to help address multiple skin problems at the same time with a safer and more gentle series of treatments. You will experience little discomfort or downtime. We use state-of-the-art Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) developed by Alma Lasers to deliver a consistent energy pulse for a more safe and uniform treatment in typical cases.*

Our Photofacial treatment can help target broken capillaries, wrinkles, age skins, and brown spots. We can also help target cherry angiomas, a common skin growth containing broken blood vessels that cause a reddish appearance. Photofacials can also be used for overall skin rejuvenation and restoration.*

Photo Rejuvenation

When considering photo rejuvenation, you should know all the facts. Photo rejuvenation works using advanced fluorescent technology Pulsed Light to help penetrate through the outer layer of skin to treat skin problems at the source: the dermis, the inner layer of skin. The light pulses can case blood vessels in the skin to restrict, helping to reduce redness and helping to repair capillary damage. It also helps promote the production of collagen, a protein naturally found in your body that gives your skin a fuller, more youthful look by filling in lines and making skin smoother and giving it greater elasticity.*

After your treatment, you may experience some redness, similar to a mild sunburn. Don’t worry; this will dissipate in 24 to 72 hours and is the only common side effect. The majority of patients do not need to take any downtime to recover, and can even return to using cosmetics the next day. Sunspots and other blemishes will darken at first as the healing process begins, and will fade completely in less than two weeks as the skin repairs itself. In no time at all you will look and feel great!*

The need for additional treatments varies from person to person and can depend on many factors, including skin type, age, lifestyle, and extent of skin damage being treated.
