IPL facials: Skin beautification in Calgary, AB

If you are looking for a no-downtime treatment with low risk of side effects, that effectively addresses a variety of aesthetic concerns, IPL facials could be a terrific solution. The experienced providers at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB are eager to answer your questions about this versatile treatment during a complimentary consultation. Meanwhile you may find the following information helpful.

Understanding intense pulsed light therapy 

Intense pulsed light or IPL is bursts of broadband light delivered to deep layers of skin, where it creates beneficial change at a molecular level. IPL skin rejuvenation is like laser therapies. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light. IPL skin treatment uses broad spectrum light (many wavelengths). This scattered light is absorbed by unwanted pigments in skin.

The IPL photofacial is recommended treatment for:

  • Age spots
  • Brown discoloration
  • Freckles
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Sun damage
  • Visible blood vessels on face

IPL acne treatment calms pimples and reduces risk of permanent scarring.

Treatment is sometimes called photorejuvenation because it has a revitalizing effect on overall skin tone and texture.

IPL facials: What to expect in Calgary, AB

Prior to an IPL facial, the clinician talks with you about medications and health conditions that may impact treatment. For a short period of time before your appointment, you may be asked to avoid direct sun exposure, tanning, waxing, chemical peels, or certain medications.

Then, the treatment area is cleaned, and a cool gel is applied. You wear eye protection while the clinician moves a handheld device over skin. Treatment is not painful, but you will feel a stinging sensation as energy is dispensed.

Treatment time depends on the area of the body, but typically takes about a half hour. IPL photofacial recovery is non-traumatic. Skin may be mildly red or swollen, but those side effects resolve in a day or two. Makeup can be worn right away, if you apply and cleanse gently. In about a week, brown pigmentation spots get darker and flake off, as other blemishes fade. Usually three to six sessions about a month apart are recommended for optimal improvement.
