IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and it is a very effective technology for facial rejuvenation. Limelight IPL® Therapy offers the advantages of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging skin and sun damage such as brown pigmentation, skin redness, freckles and lentigo which are commonly referred to as ‘liver spots’. IPL stimulates collagen in the dermis layer of the skin to improve elasticity and even skin tone and discolouration. The result is an improved skin glow and refreshment and a more youthful appearance, as the facial skin will look more even in tone and the red or darker brown pigmented areas will be reduced.
Cost of IPL Treatment
We charge $149 for one full face IPL session. Neck is an additional $49. Individual sunspots without full facial treatment are $49 each.
There is a 15% discount to packages of three or more sessions purchased.
Limelight IPL vs Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion is a light removal of the top layer of skin only, and not an intense pulsed light therapy like our Limelight IPL procedure. Unlike dermabrasion, Limelight IPL will even out red and brown pigments, as the light energy takes up these areas and causes them to recede. As such the facial skin appears more youthful than with dermabrasion because of the uniformity of the colouration and lack of red and brown pigments.
This is one of Cascadia Laser’s most popular and successful facial rejuvenation treatments, with many happy clients who return regularly for IPL maintenance.
