About IPL

IPL Photofacial (also known as Intense Pulsed Light or Photorejuvenation) is hailed as the “Gold Standard” treatment for the reduction of pigmentation. We have been offering this treatment for all areas on the body at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre for over 12 years.

Age spots, sun damage, rosacea, broken capillaries and freckles can make all the skin on your body appear dull and older than it is. The IPL Photofacial treatment at our Vancouver location can even out your skin tone, reduce the pigmentation and reveal your radiance – even on your body.


  • No downtime
  • Addresses brown and red pigmentation
  • Any area of the body can be treated
  • Stimulates the production of collagen
  • Especially effective on the arms, hands and chest

How It Works

The light energy of the IPL Photofacial targets the brown pigment and red cells in the skin. This light is converted into heat energy, which helps to fade those specific problem areas resulting in a more even, brighter complexion with less discolouration.

Medical literature has shown that individuals who have had IPL Photofacial treatments once or twice a year over a decade have healthier more radiant skin with less skin cancer than those who do not have these treatments. Furthermore for people who already have sun damage – IPL is a great tool to “turn back time” and reverse the damage that’s already been done!

Does an IPL treatment hurt?

Most patients tolerate the treatment with little discomfort. The sensation can be likened to snapping a rubber band on the skin at times. For sensitive individuals, we can provide a topical numbing cream to apply before the treatment.

When will I see results from my EMSCULPT® treatment?

The treatment protocol is 4 treatments spaced 2 to 3 days apart for optimal results. Clients report that muscle definition, fat reduction and overall toning of the treated area is more evident beginning 4 to 8 weeks after the last treatment.

How long will it take to see results?

Remember that it took you years to develop that pigmentation on your skin so it usually takes multiple treatments to fade as much as possible.

What areas of the body can I treat with the IPL?

You can treat all areas of the body however we do not recommend spot treatments. Though you may have individual pigmentation marks you would like to address, to ensure clean and even skin tone a full area treatment is required.

How much downtime will I have?

The usual length of time for the pigmentation on the body to gradually come to the surface and either slough off or fade is approximately 2 weeks.

Do I need a consultation for an IPL treatment?

Yes. Our practice is to meet all of our clients in a face to face (or body to body in this case) consultation to ensure that the treatment you request is the right one for you, your concerns and your skin type.

What can an IPL treatment help with?

The IPL treatment can reduce brown pigmentation such as sun spots, freckles and scarring, address broken capillaries, rosacea and provide an overall facial rejuvenation and stimulation of collagen.
