How IPL Skin Rejuvenation Works
We use the Harmony platform for IPL facial rejuvenation in Vancouver. It is one of the most versatile lasers in the world and can deliver ideal and optimal treatments. The Harmony uses Advanced Fluorescent Technology, the next generation of intense pulsed light. During treatment, the IPL hand piece delivers pulses of light to the treated area, which stimulates collagen production. This gives the skin an improved texture and allows it to reflect light better. Photorejuvenation Fotofacial selectively targets abnormal changes that develop with age and successfully improves fine lines, sun-damage, age spots, the symptoms of rosacea, broken veins, and numerous other facial flaws.

What to Expect
To prepare the skin for IPL, we can prepare your skin with microdermabrasion in Vancouver, if you desire. During the treatment, the entire face is scanned with the intense pulsed light. Most times the area is treated with multiple passes with customized settings at our clinic. The formation of new collagen results in decreased fine lines and the repair of sun damage. Pigment comes to the surface and sloughs off. Red and blue vessels typically fade. The skin looks younger and reflects light from its smooth surface – it glows. The results are gradual and cumulative, so that there is no startling change in the appearance of your face after just a single IPL treatment at our Vancouver office. Other people will likely remark on a more revitalized and more youthful skin, but no one will know why! There is no downtime at all.
