Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
My skin has never been this clear before. I wish I hadn't waited so long.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments are an effective and simple solution for a variety of cosmetic skin conditions, including age and sun spots, discoloration, acne and acne scars, rosacea, and even fine wrinkles. The sophisticated photorejuvenation technology used in IPL helps our Burlington, Mississauga, and Hamilton patients refresh their complexions and regain their confidence non-invasively. Dr. Otto Weiglein and our team are highly trained to perform these non-surgical treatments and produce impressive results.

Am I a Good Candidate for IPL?
At our practice serving communities near Burlington and Hamilton, intense pulsed light skin care treatments have produced dramatic results noticeable after only a single session. You should consider IPL a good treatment option if:
- You want to reduce facial redness and rosacea
- You want to diminish brown pigmentation and age spots
- You want improved skin texture
- You want to reduce acne or acne scars
- You want to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
- You want a safe procedure with minimal downtime
What Is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL photorejuvenation therapy uses a computer-guided lamp that targets your skin with light pulses of varying intensity. The intensity, depth, and duration of each pulse is carefully controlled to treat damaged skin cells without harming the surrounding tissue or the skin's outer layer.
At Cosmedica, we customize IPL treatments to fit the specific needs of each patient, from wrinkles to acne to discoloration. It's important to understand that each IPL treatment differs and its effectiveness depends in part on the intensity settings of the machine and the provider's experience. Dr. Weiglein and his hand-picked team of technicians have an exceptional amount of experience with Cosmedica's state-of-the-art IPL photorejuvenation technology.
Some patients may be better served by an "ablative" procedure such as laser skin resurfacing, which removes damaged layers of surface skin. Dr. Weiglein can recommend which skin treatment is best for your needs, and he can also recommend other enhancements to complete your rejuvenation, such as injections of BOTOX COSMETIC®.
What to Expect
IPL treatments take about a half-hour. Although most patients see significant results after the first session, we usually recommend 3 to 4 treatments to get an optimal outcome, depending on the problem we are targeting. Downtime is minimal, although some redness of the treated areas may last 24 hours.
