Skin Rejuvenation and Photo-facial

Chateau Ridge Salon & Spa offers Skin Rejuvenation and Photo-facial treatments with an IPL machine. If you're looking for even, youthful looking skin, this might just be the treatment for you!

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Photo-facial treatments are performed using a handheld device that delivers a broad spectrum of light used to target pigment issues such as brown spots, sun damage, redness & rosacea.

IPL Photo-facial treatments are typically conducted in a series of treatments at 3-5 week intervals. People often do a series of 4-6 treatments, the exact number of sessions required varies person to person. The skin begins to take on a more youthful and clear appearance after the first few sessions.

The IPL is a popular choice for skin rejuvenation. Not only is it indicated for collagen remodelling but also to alleviate both vascular and pigmented issues, restoring the skin to a more youthful appearance. It has proven to be particularly effective for treating age spots, freckles, acne, and rosacea. Most patients do not find these treatments to be painful due to the cooling system built into the machine.

How IPL Works

IPL skin rejuvenation treatments are performed using a handheld device that delivers a broad spectrum of light onto the skin’s surface. The wavelengths of light penetrate deep into the skin tissue to stimulate the cells beneath the skin’s surface and trigger the body’s ‘purging’ response so that it eliminates injured tissues and dead skin cells that may be stuck deep within the skin’s surface.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Avoid any excessive sun exposure for 4-8 weeks prior to treatment.

  • No tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.

  • Notify staff of any medications you are currently taking to determine if they are photosensitive.

  • Laser hair removal is not recommended if you are pregnant.

  • Shave 24 hours prior to your treatment.

Post Care

  • Avoid excessive exercise that will cause profuse sweating for 24-48 hours post treatment.

  • No hot baths or showers for 24 hours post treatment.

  • No perfume, lotions, or makeup 24 hours after treatment - mineral make-up is the only exception to this.

  • Use hypoallergenic SPF 30 sunblock for protection of treated areas. Apply liberally and often.
