Certainly, women have been onto the benefits of IPL photo facials, but what about the guys? Are Photo facials for men as well? We answer with a resounding YES!

A photo facial, or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a broad-spectrum light treatment used in the Photorejuvenation process. It is a non-invasive, skin health and restoration treatment that reduces the damage inflicted to your skin over time.

With just a few treatments, photo facials for men provide plenty of benefits. They target wrinkles, discolouration, veins around the chin and mouth, hyperpigmentation, age spots, broken capillaries, freckles, moles, rosacea and melisma. In fact, our IPL treatments boast a 50-75% improvement rate providing improvements with little or no downtime and little discomfort.

Unlike Microdermabrasion and other facial skin treatments that target the outermost layer of skin, IPL treatments penetrate your skin on the deepest levels. Because of this, they can stimulate your body to produce new collagen and connective tissue. When collagen is stimulated by a photo facial treatment, it provides a smoother looking complexion reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As men age, they often begin to see discolouration around the beard area. Photo facials can do a great job of targeting this problem creating a smoother and cleaner skin tone. The high-intensity light treatment can help to restore skin’s pigment giving a more even looking complexion. Photo facials for men can also improve those little veins around the chin and broken capillaries on the nose.

The ideal candidate for photo facials for men is in good health, practices good skin care, and regularly uses sunscreen. The cost of a photo facial for men can be as little as $99 for a session. So why not embrace that little secret women have been using for years. Book an appointment with The Gentle Touch in Kitsilano for a photo facial today!
