IPL
PHOTOREJUVENATION

textline-01

IPL photorejuvenation is a skin renewing technology that often allows clients to transform the appearance of red, uneven, and blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. An IPL is about a thirty minute procedure where beams of light penetrate the skin, which may help to reduce the appearance of redness and wrinkles. This procedure involves minimal discomfort, while the swelling and redness that sometimes occur after treatment generally disappear shortly.

WHY IT WORKS


During an IPL treatment, pulses of light are intended to reduce the signs of aging (including facial wrinkles and discolouration). We believe this wavelength of light to be optimal for also clearing vascular and pigmented lesions. We recommend three to five treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart.

We consider IPL photofacials to be the most versatile skin treatment we have available.

"This is a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Micro-fractional laser treatment given by Dr. Biro. I found it to be nearly painless during the treatment of about one hour or so and of course no pain at all with the healing process."

I've been seeing Dr. Andy for botox and facial treatments since 2011. As a person, he is very considerate and caring; capable of interesting, lively banter - a nice to know individual. As a professional, he is quite disciplined and knowledgeable. His clinical approach is cautious and discerning - using the most appropriate treatment of the many options and products offered by his practise. He does good work and I trust him. I do not look anything like a 60+ woman - I look 40-ish.... which is quite empowering.

Doc Andy is the best. Doesn't make you feel insignificant for wanting to look your best. The best part is he won't allow you to pump yourself up with more than you need like some will because its all about the money. You will have a great experience. The staff are friendly and super helpful. Book early. He's so popular here in Qualicum Beach it takes time to get into see him.

FAQ’S ABOUT PHOTOREJUVENATION

What does an IPL photorejuvenation treat?

We use IPL to treat a wide variety of skin problems: the appearance of red spots, diffuse redness, acne and rosacea. IPL treatments may also help to smooth uneven skin texture, close large pores, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Are results ?

Photofacials are a maintenance treatment intended to reduce negative cosmetic effects. However, the aging process continues so further treatments may be necessary to keep your skin in optimal condition.

How many treatments are recommended?

Depending on the area being treated and the severity of the problem, multiple treatment sessions may be recommended. 

Is there any down time needed?

Most redness caused by the treatment often clears after a few hours for most clients.

How long do treatments take?

The treatment usually takes between 15-30 minutes. We recommend waiting 3-6 weeks between each treatment session.

How much does the treatment cost?

IPL photorejuvenation costs usually run between $150 and $300 per treatment. However, the exact amount varies depending on the area on which the treatment is performed.

Are there any side effects associated with this treatment?

We find that the most frequently reported side effects of IPL photo rejuvenation are relatively mild. The most common side effect is facial redness. In rarer instances, mild bruising and swelling may occur.  The IPL is capable of causing burns and significant pigmentation disorders which is why it is vital that treatments are administered by experienced and trained technicians in a medically supervised environment.
