Kelowna's Dedicated Anti-Aging Facility
Expertise and Caring in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine.
When you look in the mirror, do you like your reflection? Or do large pores, excessive freckles and tiny dark hairs make you feel a little less than confident?
While you can learn to love these tiny flaws and imperfections, you can also opt for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to improve your skin's appearance.
At The De Pieri Clinic, our staff happily provides IPL to Kelowna residents. With this latest advancement in skin rejuvenation, you'll soon enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin.
How Does It Work?
IPL relies on carefully controlled light pulses. The light penetrates deep into the dermis where it then generates heat. The heat stimulates your body's collagen production, sometimes by as much as 20%. The collagen plumps your skin, maintaining its elasticity and giving you a firmer, more supple look.
Better still, the pulsating light leaves the skin's outer layer completely intact. As a result, you don't have to take days or weeks to heal. You can receive the treatment during an afternoon lull without interrupting the rest of your day’s activities.
What Conditions Does It Treat?
Intense pulsed light therapy works well for a variety of conditions, including:
In some cases, IPL also helps fight against stretch marks and mild acne.
Need More Information?
Intense pulsed light does take a few weeks to take its full effect. Your body needs time to flake away the skin's old outer layer and reveal the new revitalized layer underneath. But soon, you’ll see a noticeable difference in how your skin looks and feels.
