Super IPL Treatments in Greater Vancouver

Clear, beautiful skin in 10 days!

Experience skin-clearing benefits on your face, hands, chest or body  for a healthy, even skin tone in half the time! Our Super IPL (intense pulsed light) selectively targets skin imperfections and colour inconsistencies for a clear, even, rejuvenated complexion. Equally effective on brown or red pigmentation, a Super IPL treatment will fade freckles, sun damage, age spots and red vessels such as broken capillaries and facial spider veins, in less time than traditional treatments. By targeting accumulated damage caused by aging, the environment and photo-aging (sun damage), your skin will receive an anti-aging boost.

Optimized for light and dark skin, this rejuvenating treatment delivers a clearer, brighter complexion for all skin tones and types. It is equally effective on the face, hands or body. While more than one treatment may be required for long standing damage, you will see a marked improvement from your very first session. A clearer skin with improved texture is achieved in 1-2 sessions, compared to 4-5 sessions with competing devices.

Fast results and fewer treatments have made the Super IPL Photofacial one of our most requested photorejuvenation procedures in both our Port Coquitlam and Metrotown locations.

FAQ

All areas of the body may be treated, with the most common areas being those exposed to the sun, including: face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure one month prior to treatment.

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal and usually subside within an hour following treatment. Pigmented spots will darken first and flake off approximately a week post treatment. Veins may blanch (turn white or grey) and disappear or change colour temporarily before fading. Your skin will be clearer and more even in approximately 10 days.

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type and type of treatments (vascular vs sun damage). Our Doctors at EverYoung will determine the correct settings to ensure maximum results, while ensuring a safe, effective treatment.
