Intense pulse light (IPL) or Broad-band light (BBL) are two very effective and safe anti aging treatment options for sun damaged or aged skin offered at the Toronto Dermatology Centre.
This treatment is so popular because it has multiple benefits – it can improve the colour, texture, and tone of the skin by fading brown spots, reducing redness and blood vessels, and tightening the skin and reducing pore size.
Our anti aging doctors will discuss with you this light-based treatment along with other anti aging treatments to optimize the look and feel of your skin.
Our Toronto skin care clinic ensures that we have the top laser and light-based devices in the country, as well as top notch laser technicians and estheticians providing a safe and comfortable treatment.
What is intense pulsed light (IPL) or broad-band light (BBL)?
IPL & BBL technologies are synonymous. Photorejuvenation (sometimes called Photofacials) technology is a non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of aging skin and gives it a more youthful look.
Since it treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, there is no recovery time and patients can return to regular activities immediately after rejuvenation treatment (sometimes a little makeup is required). In addition to treating the face, the neck, chest and hands are commonly treated as well.
Photorejuvenation using IPL or BBL is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment for men and women to reverse sun-induced skin damage. It improves the texture of the skin, stimulates your own collagen to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, clears red blotches and spider veins, and fades brown spots, including brown age spots found on the backs of hands. It can also soften scars and reduce pore size, all with minimal recovery time.
