Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
At Fortelli of Mississauga, we offer the most advanced treatments for face and body. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a preferred method of hair removal as well as correcting blemishes and pigmentation in the skin.
Intense Pulsed Light uses light energy to correct hyper pigmentation, vascular and pigmented lesions. IPL treatments can reduce the appearance of many unsightly skin conditions including sun damage.
Intense pulsed light treatments use precise amounts of light energy delivered to small, targeted areas.
The production of collagen is stimulated as the light energy is delivered through the skin's surface. The production of collagen can give the face a more youthful appearance and improved skin texture. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of ageing skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pigmentation spots, caused by the aging process or sun damage can also be reduced or eliminated. Photo facial treatments restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin texture.
VASCULAR SKIN CONDITIONS
By coagulating the blood within the vessels, IPL can reduce the appearance of spider veins, redness, rosacea and other related vascular conditions.
Intense Pulsed Light Services Menu:
- Vascular Lesions
- Pigmented lesions
- Rosacea and Broken Capillaries
- Brown Spots
- Hyperpigmentation (Melasma)
Many hyperpigmented and problem pigment areas are related to sun damage and the natural aging process. For removal of pigmented lesions, light from the pre-selected bandwidth is absorbed by the dark melanin pigment in the skin and converted to heat.
The heat causes the pigment in the lesion to coagulate and eventually slough off as the skin normally exfoliates.
*IPL treatments can only be reserved after consultation. All IPL pricing is based upon consultation.
