What is photo rejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation is a technique that uses the properties of light to give a more youthful appearance to the skin by targeting redness and pigment disorders. It can treat the skin on the face, neck, décolleté, and hands by improving its texture, smoothing it, and reshaping it by triggering the production and synthesis of new collagen, responsible for skin support.

Reasons to Have IPL Photorejuvenation

Improved Skin Texture: Photorejuvenation can help improve skin texture by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness, resulting in smoother and softer skin.

Reduction of Pigmentation Issues: It’s effective in reducing the appearance of pigmentation problems like sunspots, age spots, and freckles, leading to a more even skin tone.

Reduction of Redness and Rosacea: For those with redness or rosacea, photorejuvenation can help minimize these issues, resulting in a calmer complexion.

Youthful Appearance: Photorejuvenation stimulates collagen production, which can make the skin appear more youthful and firmer.

Minimized Blood Vessels: It can reduce the appearance of dilated blood vessels, such as those associated with conditions like couperose.

Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, photorejuvenation is non-invasive, which means there’s minimal downtime and a lower risk of complications.

Quick and Convenient: Treatments are relatively quick, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule.

Natural-Looking Results: Photorejuvenation provides natural-looking results, enhancing one’s appearance without the need for more dramatic interventions.

Targeted Areas: It can be applied to specific areas of concern, allowing for customized treatment plans.

Boosted Self-Confidence: Many individuals find that improved skin appearance leads to increased self-confidence and a more positive self-image.

Overall, photorejuvenation is a popular choice for individuals looking to address various skin concerns and achieve a fresher, more youthful, and even complexion.

What to do after receiving photorejuvenation treatments in Montreal?

  1. During the 2 or 3 days following the treatment, you should take certain precautions to avoid causing damage to the treated area. Avoid scratching, touching, or rubbing the treated area for 24 hours or until all signs of irritation have disappeared.
  2. Throughout the duration of your treatment, apply sunscreen (UVA/UVB) to your skin with a minimum SPF of 30 to protect it from the sun’s rays. Reapply sunscreen in case of prolonged sun exposure. Avoid tanning sessions four weeks before the treatment and during the entire treatment course.
  3. Within 48 hours following the treatment, avoid vigorous exercise, hot baths, and spas, as these activities can increase your blood circulation, generate body heat, or cause irritation.
  4. If your skin cracks or a blister appears, please contact us. For additional protection, avoid direct sun exposure during the onset of symptoms. Blistering due to sun exposure has been observed up to 72 hours after the treatment. A crust may form over pigment spots; it is important not to touch it and let it fall off. Redness and swelling are also normal reactions that may take up to 48 hours to disappear.
  5. Until the day after the treatment, you can use cold compresses or soothing gel to relieve temporary discomfort and help your skin return to its normal appearance; do not use creams.
  6. You can apply makeup only if your skin has returned to its normal state.
  7. After the treatment, if you experience irritating skin rashes, applying Benadryl should relieve itching. It occasionally takes several months for these symptoms to disappear. Avoid direct sun exposure to the affected area during the manifestation of symptoms.


Patients who have undergone a skin test related to epidermal reactions can return to the clinic 72 hours later to receive their treatment.
