Photorejuvenation/IPL

What Is Photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation uses intense pulse light (IPL) or broadband light (BBL) technology to improve a variety of skin conditions such as sun damage or rosacea. It is a non-invasive procedure that boosts collagen production without damaging the skin. Photorejuvenation, also known as photofacial, is individually tailored to suit your skin type. It can be used to treat your face or other areas such as your hands and chest.

To achieve the best results from Photorejuvenation, a series of three to six treatments is usually recommended. This will provide you with gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results. Each session lasts 30 minute and is performed in the privacy of our Mississauga cosmetic surgery clinic. Makeup can be applied immediately afterwards and with no down time it is a great treatment to book during your lunch hour.

Who Can Benefit from Photorejuvenation?

At different points in our lives we all battle with skin imperfections that we wish we could get rid of. Photorejuvenation is a fantastic procedure because it can treat a wide variety of skin conditions no matter what your age.

  • Improves sun damage
  • Reduces the signs of aging
  • Corrects age spots and birthmarks
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Treats redness and blood vessels from rosacea
  • Gets rid of unsightly small veins and blemishes

Photorejuvenation is not recommended on tanned skin or darker skin types. It is best to wait until your tan has faded before proceeding with treatment. Photorejuvenation can be combined with microdermabrasion to further enhance results.

What Does Photorejuvenation Cost?

Improving your skin’s health can involve a variety of approaches. During your complimentary consultation, our Skin Care Specialist will design an individual skin rejuvenating program tailored to meet your specific needs and budget. Photorejuvenation is most effective in a series of 3 to 6 treatments performed three to four weeks apart. Cost-effective packages are available.
