About IPL Photorejuvenation treatments in Victoria.
IPL treatments offer Victoria and Vancouver Island patients a way to safely and efficiently address sun damage, rosacea, spider veins on the face, age spots and acne. Using the M22™ IPL technology by Lumenis, we deliver gentle yet precise and powerful IPL treatments for more youthful, vibrant and healthy skin. This versatile and safe technology can treat both the face and body to correct the signs of aging that affect areas commonly exposed to the sun, such as the neck, chest, arms and hands.
IPL Photorejuvenation helps with:
- facial vessels
- neck & chest
- brown spots
- red spots
- sun damage
- wrinkles & fine lines
How it works:
Common aging and sun damage concerns such as uneven skin tone, facial redness, enlarged pores, rough skin texture and dullness are corrected over an initial series of 3-5 IPL treatments, spaced three to four weeks apart. IPL treatments apply pulses of light to the skin. Once this light energy is selectively absorbed by its target (the pigment in age spots and red blood cells in spider veins), the body begins work to eliminate these damaged cells; age spots will first darken then slough away from the skin’s surface while targeted blood vessels are absorbed and metabolized by the body. Over a period of four to seven days, the skin is renewed, revealing a more even and luminous complexion.

IPL Photorejuvenation Frequently Asked Questions
IPL treatments have been compared to the sensation of an elastic band snapping gently on the skin. When combined with flashes of light, IPL pulses can be startling initially, but patients generally find the treatment tolerable without any comfort interventions.
You may see results after just one treatment, especially to remove brown spots. Each subsequent treatment in a recommended series will normally further improve the outcome. We often recommend seasonal or annual treatments to help you maintain a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion, and delay future aging changes.
Pigmentation and vessels are the primary targets for IPL Photorejuvenation treatments. In addition, your skin will be smoother, your pores more refined, and your overall complexion will appear even and radiant.
While there is normally no downtime, most of the initial healing will take place in the first 3-5 days. During this time, the targeted pigmentation will rise to the skin’s surface and gradually slough away. Treated vessels may take 2-6 weeks to fully clear.
Since unprotected sun exposure can result in brown spots and redness reappearing, we recommend avoiding the sun at peak times and wearing protective clothing in order to maintain the even and clear skin tone you achieved with your IPL treatments. Applying an antioxidant serum in combination with a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine, is also important in preventing and delaying the signs of sun damage.
