Intense Pulsed Light IPL in the Summer months, is it safe??

At the Bay Dermatology Centre we use the BBL system for our IPL treatments. IPL targets unwanted melanin pigment in the skin and destroys it. It can also target one’s own natural pigmentation. This is why you cannot get IPL when you have a tan. If you commit to wearing sunscreen during your IPL treatments there is no reason why you cannot have IPL in the summer. This should not pose a problem because everyone should be wearing their sunscreen anyway :)

Forever Young BBL- The difference

Not only is Forever Young BBL well known for clearing sun damage and redness but also it’s the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan. The studies show that over 1000 gene expressions became “rejuvenated” to be more like youthful skin resulting in decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition; leading to improvements in fine wrinkles and pigmentations.

With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, patient’s skin looks clear, smooth, and much younger.

Forever Young BBL Benefits:

  • Zero downtime: Patient’s resume normal activities immediately and no need to be concerned about whether it’s summer time
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Fast treatment: Average treatment time is 12-15 minutes for a full face.
