IPL Photo Facial Benefits for Sun Damage

by | Aug 29, 2018

As a sun worshipper from the early 90’s in Alberta, I remember taking advantage of every sunny day possible. Lathering up on dark tanning oil and spending hours smelling like coconuts and soaking up the rays. It never occurred to me the damage I was inflicting on my skin. Now in my forty’s and a little more knowledgeable about the importance of SPF, UVA and skin health; there are small visible brown spots that remind me every day of my recklessness. (sun spots)

What is IPL And How Does It Get Rid of Dark Spots on My Face?

IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light.” Also referred to as IPL Laser Photo Facial.  IPL is a safe and effective treatment that targets the brown and redness on your skin. Which means, it erases dark spots (age spots/sun spots) that you may have gotten over the years. The light grabs onto the superficial pigment, breaking it up and then your body clears it away over the next couple of weeks. No downtime, you can return straight to work afterward!  Don’t get these marks confused with moles or freckles; these bothersome little dark spots are damage from sun exposure; spending too much time in the sun and not using sunscreen. No more covering them up with foundation, IPL is the best non-invasive treatment for dark spots on your face.

Besides Dark Spots what are the other Photo Facial Benefits?

•    Clears up small visible blood vessels.

•    Acne! IPL can help eliminate large pores which can control your acne.

•    Reduces redness such as Rosacea.

•    Stimulates collagen growth which helps improve skins texture and reduces the sign of aging.

•    Most patients experience no pain with IPL


Don’t waste your money on makeup and home remedies, IPL is the best treatment for dark spots on your face.  Once you see the results of IPL, I can guarantee you will start wanting to fix other problem areas on your body; like the back of your hands, your neck/chest area, and shoulders.


For additional anti-aging treatment options consider Morpheus8 microneedling. This treatment repairs collagen, making the skin smoother and tighter than before treatment began. Of course to have a well-rounded skincare plan wouldn’t be complete without unwanted hair removal. Laser hair removal is the most effective permanent hair removal options.
