IPL/Photo-Facial and Yag Laser Treatments

IPL/Photo-Facial

IPL (intense pulsed light) technology can treat a wide range of facial concerns such as facial veins, skin discolouration, freckles, age spots and features of rosacea.

IPL treatments can cause a stinging or burning sensation on the skin. Redness at the treatment sites may last for 1-2 days. Skin discolourations will become temporarily darker and then will fade to a lighter shade within 7-10 days. Swelling can occur and last up to 48 hours. Please allow for 2 hours of time in office, 1 hour for numbing and 1 hour for treatment.

A series of treatments is recommended for maximum improvement. You should always allow 2 weeks before any important social functions.

After treatment, sun protection and gentle skin care is advised.

Cost:
1 session: $275 + HST

Yag Laser

Yag laser is specifically used for the treatment of spider veins. The treatment sensation is warm and shock-like. After treatment, the veins may have a cat-scratch- like appearance. Occasionally crusting, darkening, or redness and bruising can occur. Any reactions resolve in 1-2 weeks. Touch-ups are often required.

After treatment, sun protection and gentle skin care is advised.

Cost:
Starting at $150 + HST
