IPL Photo Rejuvenation
In a nutshell, IPL is a procedure that uses Intense Pulsed Light to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in our skin.
The IPL is used at a wide frequency range to heat up and eliminate targeted cells (causes a little bit of damage). Fibroblast accumulation begins the healing process, cell turnover increases to replace the damaged cells and the generation of collagen is stimulated. This stimulation improves skin texture, fine lines and reduces pore size. IPL makes it possible to reduce the intensity of sunspots and of superficial veins by causing them to collapse and no longer be visible.
We must aid in this treatment with a nutrient rich skin care regime designed to heal and support the function of regeneration. The skin is given the essential vitamins and minerals needed to rebuild strong and healthy cells. Nutrients and protection is an intricate part of supporting new cell and tissue growth and the rebuilding of a healthier skin. Our high standards and integrity do not permit us to perform IPL Photo Rejuvenation without our supporting day and night cream TLC designed specifically to support Photo Rejuvenation.
This treatment is performed October – March only.
Pre/post treatment protocols will be discussed in the consultation along with your medical history.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation Questions & Answers
What does IPL Photo Rejuvenation involve?
With IPL you will be provided with protective eye shields and a warm gel will be applied to your face. Your skin care professional will then scan the IPL handpiece across the area being treated. You may feel some discomfort. The session will last between 20 – 40 minutes.
Is it painless? Is it safe?
Generally, IPL treatments are not considered painful by most patients. Many compare a typical IPL session to the sensation of being snapped with a rubber band. Ultimately, your response will depend on your pain tolerance. IPL is safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment.
How often will I need the Procedure?
As a rule, maximum results are achieved after 4 – 6 sessions, 4 weeks apart. Results are based on age and the condition of your skin. Results can be achieved in as little as 2 treatments.
Is there any involvement on my part?
Yes, your need to purchase a product called TLC4 which is an advanced day and night rejuvenation program. We want you to have the best results possible and for that reason we have designed “TLC4” to care for your skin after your IPL treatment. This is an important step in re- building your skin into a healthier and stronger condition. The day cream offers wide spectrum protection to support new skin cells, hold moisture and protect from your skin from environmental conditions while healing. The night cream is packed with vitamins and minerals needed to support the function of regeneration by giving your skin the nutrients needed to support rejuvenation. The goal is to rebuild your skin to a healthier condition by producing more collagen and strengthening elastin. This rejuvenating process will leave your skin with less wrinkles, smaller pore size and an overall healthier even completion. If you are going to induce collagen growth you need to support that process with TLC4 Care.
