Our Techniques of IPL Treatment

Consultation: First before performing IPL Facial treatment. Our practitioner will take a good look at your skin type, color, and overall condition to decide on the best customized plan of treatment for you.

Preparation: On the day of the treatment, It’s essential to give your skin a break from perfume, makeup, and any fragranced products that might irritate it. Our aestheticians will take care of cleaning your skin and will apply a cooling gel to the area that’s about to be treated, just to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Treatment: Later our aesthetician will get to work with a handheld device, sending multiple wavelengths of light onto your skin. This light will heat up and break down some of the cells in your skin, but your skin is totally prepared to naturally get rid of any damaged tissue. Most patients don’t feel pain, although some say it feels a bit like a mild sunburn.

Post-treatment care: Once the treatment is done, our practitioner will soothe your skin with a cream or lotion. It’s super important to keep the treated area out of the sun and to layer on sunscreen to protect your skin. Depending on what you’re looking to achieve, you might need to come back for a few more treatments.

What is an IPL Facial Laser Treatment?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, also known as a photofacial, is a fabulous non-invasive skin treatment that uses concentrated laser wavelengths of light to rejuvenate your skin. It uses a powerful burst of light to improve your skin tone and texture, tackle broken blood vessels, rosacea, pigmentation issues, sun spots, and age spots, and also smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles. It’s like giving your skin a fresh start. IPL is considered the right procedure because it targets just the right spots, zapping away pigmented or damaged skin cells and even hair follicles. The light reaches all the way down to the dermal layer of your skin, ensuring a thorough treatment. Depending on the specific light wavelength used, it can focus on pigment cells, hair follicles, or blood vessels, effectively destroying them and leaving your skin looking smoother and more even. The best part is that It turns back the clock on your skin, undoing some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure, pollution, and all those environmental stresses. So, if you’re looking to give your skin an extra care and roll back the effects of time and exposure, IPL might just be your best companion.

How Does IPL Facial Works?

The way IPL laser treatment works is really fascinating. First, it sends out light energy that’s specifically absorbed by the colored target cells (chromophores) in your skin. This light energy then transforms into heat energy, and this is where the magic happens. The heat goes on to damage the target area, causing the target cells to break down and ultimately be destroyed through a process called thermocoagulation. Now, there’s this cool thing called photothermolysis, which is one of the ways IPL is thought to help with dry eye. It selectively targets and destroys blood vessels, providing relief. The light from the IPL treatment is quite versatile too; it scatters and penetrates down to the dermal layer of your skin, ensuring a thorough treatment. Depending on the specific wavelength of light used, different targets like pigment cells, hair follicles, or blood vessels will absorb the light energy and get destroyed. This makes IPL a fantastic option for dealing with vascular issues, pigmented lesions, and even those pesky fine lines known as mild rhytids. IPL treatment can also boost collagen synthesis, leading to improved skin texture and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So, if you’re looking for a treatment that dives deep to rejuvenate and refresh your skin, IPL might just be what you need.

Benefits of the IPL Treatment

Improved skin tone and texture: IPL facial treatment can help improve the appearance of aged and sun-damaged skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Reduced signs of aging: IPL facial treatment can stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Reduced pigmentation: IPL facial treatment can reduce the appearance of pigmented imperfections, such as brown spots, sun spots, and age spots.

Reduced redness: IPL facial treatment can reduce the appearance of redness caused by broken blood vessels, rosacea, and erythema.

Reduced acne: IPL facial treatment can help combat acne by repairing small blood vessels, clearing the skin in the area where such vessels are visible or have caused irregular pigmentation.

Is IPL Treatment a Safe Procedure?

IPL treatment is generally considered to be a safe procedure. A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that IPL treatment is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions, including age spots, sun damage, and rosacea.

How Many Treatments Are Required for an IPL Facial Treatment?

When it comes to IPL facial treatments, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for how many sessions you’ll need to see the best results. It really depends on your own skin’s condition and what you’re hoping to achieve. Generally speaking, most patients find themselves in the sweet spot after three to six treatments, with each session spaced about four weeks apart. If your skin needs a bit of downtime to heal and get back on track, create new collagen and elastin after each treatment. So, it’s a bit of a journey, but it’s all about giving your skin the time it needs to rejuvenate and show off those amazing results.

What is The Recovery time for the IPL Facial Treatment?

After undergoing an IPL facial treatment, the recovery time is usually short. Most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, mild side effects such as redness, swelling, and irritation may occur, which can last for a few days. In rare cases, more severe side effects such as blistering and scarring may occur.

What is the general cost of the ALMA IPL Treatment in Toronto?
