There are several age-delaying benefits of BroadBand Light as this pulsed light treatment has the ability to reduce hyperpigmentation, sunspots, rosacea, and redness. Over time, fine lines wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging may also diminish. IPL treatments are not just for your face. In Ottawa, IPL is effective for certain skin concerns on the neck, chest, arms, and hands. IPL treatments are easily tolerated and there is no expected downtime afterward. By having your photorejuvenation treatment in Ottawa using our BBL technology, you can even out your skin tone, minimize pores, brighten dull skin, minimize rosacea, and create an overall radiant glow. Studies show that BBL can also rejuvenate your skin at a cellular level, helping to reinvigorate genes that are more active in younger skin. What makes this IPL system even more fascinating is the anti-aging results are long lasting. In studies performed over a 10-year period at Stanford University, patients who received BBL 3-4 times per year looked approximately 10 years younger than their chronological age1.
