Intense pulsed-light (IPL) or photo-facial, helps improve the colour and texture of the skin, including evening out skin tone, reversing signs of aging, and treating acne. The IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light, when the skin is heated, the body gets rid of unwanted cells.

Most clients compare IPL to the gentle snap of an elastic band against the skin. Others experience it as a very short pinprick. While no anesthetic is required, we do cool the skin, which helps to minimize any discomfort.
A typical treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Because there is little to no downtime, you can have an IPL Photofacial during your lunch break.
Most patients receive 4-5 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
We recommend clients to wear sunscreen, also to avoid tanning 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the treatment. It is also suggested to avoid hot baths a few days after your treatment.
A lot of treatments are safe for darker skin tones. However, to determine if an individual may be at risk of discolouration, it’s best to consult directly with a certified treatment technician.
