Areas Treated With IPL Hair Removal:
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. You may experience some slight pinkness or follicular swelling (hive-type reaction) at the treatment site, that usually subsides within a few hours. Cool compresses and aloe vera gel can be used to soothe the skin. True side effects are rare, and if they do occur, are typically minor.
In order to achieve successful results, hair needs to be treated at the active growth stage (anagen, or early anagen phase). While it may appear that all hairs are growing at once, they actually grow asynchronously. Depending on the area, 10-20% may be in the growth phase at any one time. For this reason, treatments are generally performed at 4 to 10 weeks intervals, depending on the area that is being treated, in order to target the percentage hairs that are in the growth phase at that time.
At Totally Skin & Beauty we care for the safety and well-being of our clients. All new clients who are interested in having IPL treatments are required to have a test patch regardless of how many times they have had laser or IPL treatments elsewhere. Our consultation, test patch and treatment is thoroughly and strictly performed by our dermal clinician, Maryan.

IPL Skin Treatment
IPL can be used to treat the pigmentation (dark patches) and vascular changes (red marks) seen in acne scarring.
We use the MiniVac system that uses direct contact of a diamond-coated head combined with a mild vacuum suction to rejuvenate the skin by increasing micro-circulation, thus improving blood supply in the skin.
As it is a non-invasive technique microdermabrasion has earned its popularity due to its low down time and fast effectiveness with various skin conditions and disorders including:Uneven skin tone, the appearance of enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, mild acne, thickened and sun damaged skin, fine wrinkles and mild scarring.
Our highly qualified dermal clinicians, Maryan and Leelah, will arrange for a complimentary skin consultation and will tailor a treatment plan to suit your needs.
A course of 3 microdermabrasion treatments is recommended to attain best results. However a single microdermabrasion treatment is also available best combined with a chemical peel.
Skin needling can be used for scar reduction, uneven skin tone, reducing pore size, and the stimulation of collagen thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Our dermal clinicians, Maryan and Leelah, will advise you of the treatment price upon consultation.
Chemical peels use mild acids and enzymes that have exfoliating properties, removing dead skin cells, deep cleanse the skin and allow for the deep penetration of active ingredients.
