You have to admit i, at some point in our lives we have all done the same thing – we have laid out too long in the sun without the proper protection.
Whether on a beach vacation in the Caribbean or at the cottage we have all damaged our skin with the sun.
Many years later we see the results of the sun damage that we did by way of dark pigmented areas, freckles, broken blood vessels and fine (or not so fine) lines on our face hands and chest.
What can be done to treat this damage?
IPL is Intense Pulse Light treatment, also known as Photo Rejuvenation. Lasting Looks Clinic in Etobicoke uses only Medical grade professional equipment for our IPL treatments.
Your treatment is provided by a Medical Aesthetician, who is fully certified in the use operation of this equipment.
IPL specifically targets anything that is not of “normal” skin color. During your treatment you may feel a warm snapping sensation, this is the light treatment going through the top layers of the skin and focusing all of its energy on the discoloration or broken blood vessel.
Within a few days these dark freckles will turn darker and then get crusty and fall off. IPL treatments also help to regenerate collagen in the skin, which will lessen fine lines and reduce pore size.
Generally a series of 3-6 treatments is necessary to achieve your best results.
