IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) in North Vancouver, BC

Treatment Information

IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a popular and versatile treatment that can improve a range of issues on the face, hands, neck, chest and the body including brown spots, broken capillaries, and rosacea. The energy also stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps improve the appearance of fine line and enlarged pores.

How it Works

IPL is also called PhotoFacial for brown spots, sunspots, broken capillaries, rosacea and other pigmentary concerns that affect the complexion. IPL technology is Health Canada approved and it works by delivering a scattered ray of light that allows it to penetrate all levels of the skin without harming the surface so there is very little to no downtime. A series of treatments are required to see the best overall results. Treatments are performed three to four weeks apart.

IPL rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen production and is safe on most skin types. Contact us and find out if you are a right candidate for IPL.
