Even if there isn’t a special occasion like prom or a wedding, the desire is strong to look great. When your skin looks great, you feel great. Some of the common issues with skin is redness, darkness, sun damage, wrinkles and more. An IPL photo facial can help reverse some of these unpleasant side effects of aging. Here are some frequently asked questions about photo facials with answers written by the Canadian medical spa, Oakville Anti Aging Clinic.
IPL Photofacial is a remarkable and gentle treatment for troublesome rosacea, facial vascular redness, large pores, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, as well as preventative and maintenance treatment for general signs of aging. IPL Photofacial (IPL stands for intense pulse light) is a non-ablative therapies which means that it does not harm or remove the upper layer of the skin. Instead, it focuses on deeper skin layers to promote new collagen production and small vessels such as capillaries to improve skin tone, smoothness and appearance
How Does IPL Photofacial Work?
The IPL Photofacial targets a broad spectrum of light to the lower layers of the epidermis causing the skin to produce new collagen and connective tissue, which supports the upper skin layer better and makes the skin surface smoother. IPL Photofacial also targets vascular lesions and symptoms of rosacea and signs of photoaging. A special handpiece will be placed on your skin and will deliver light energy to the targeted area.

How does the LightSheer Diode Laser System work?
The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery..
What advantages does the LightSheer have over other laser hair removal systems?
The LightSheer Diode Laser System was designed from the ground up for laser hair removal, so it has the wavelength, fluence, pulse width, and active epidermal cooling system-the ChillTip ideally suited for laser hair removal. The system’s solid state construction makes it durable; it’s state-of-the-art user interface makes it easy to use. Finally, Lumenis has been in the business of making medical and cosmetic lasers for more than 30 years, so we’ve been able to develop unparalleled service and support
Why should I use the LightSheer Diode Laser System rather than the methods I’ve been using for years?
The LightSheer Diode Laser System’s design provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy. Since the system uses a unique cooling handpiece, it minimizes skin irritation that other methods may create. Since it is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced.Finally, the LightSheer Diode Laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
