Our skin is damaged by the cumulative effects of environment and UV exposure more than any other part of our body. Issues like mottled pigmentation, discoloured skin, brown lesions, age or sun spots, freckles, fine wrinkles, visible spider veins or broken capillaries are indications that your skin is not as healthy as it could be. Photorejuvenation with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is designed to address these issues, revitalizing your skin to make it healthier and more youthful in appearance. The treatment can also resolve redness resulting from rosacea and more invasive medical aesthetic procedures.
Call Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre at 905-849-4282 to set up your photorejuvenation consultation. Our estheticians work under the guidance of board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Brown, who specializes in anti-aging treatments that are safe, effective, and convenient.
IPL is an advanced technology that improves your skin without requiring you to undergo invasive surgery. This photo rejuvenation method corrects the sub-dermal damage responsible for creating a host of undesirable skin conditions. The energy used by the IPL technology we offer is so accurate that it is able to work beneath the skin, without causing any harm to the surface. This means that, once the procedure has been completed, you’ll be able to get back to your normal schedule without having to undergo any recovery downtime. Redness and visible facial blood vessels will start to clear up after your treatment is finished, while you recover. Any dark pigmentation spots will begin to fade and flake away. This process is part of how your body naturally heals and revitalizes itself, leaving you with radiant, youthful skin.
IPL is suitable for every part of your body, but the kind of problems you’re likely to want treated are commonly found on the areas of the skin that are most often exposed to sunlight. These include your face, chest, shoulders, neck, and the back of your hands. Patients of any skin tone or type can be treated with complete safety. Treatment clarifies your complexion and smoothes away rough textures for an overall youthful appearance.
Dr. Brown and his staff of skilled estheticians excel in providing skin improvement plans to achieve outstanding results. Your photofacial treatment starts with a complimentary skin assessment that will help you to identify your problem areas and how they can be corrected. An esthetician will perform a physical examination that checks your skin for common issues such as noticeable pores, uneven skin texture, fine lining, wrinkles, discolouration, and even underlying pigmentation conditions that have yet to surface. After this they will be able to tailor a treatment approach meant to help you accomplish your exact skin improvement goals.
