IPL + Photofacial Treatment

Photofacial treatments offer a targeted solution for reducing pigmented lesions, redness, and broken capillaries. Employing the advanced technology of the GentleMax Pro® device, these treatments utilize laser light to selectively absorb unwanted melanin, effectively breaking down the skin's pigment in specific areas while preserving surrounding tissue integrity. It's important to note that Photofacials are deemed safe for skin types 1-3, with some applicability for skin type 4. Individuals ineligible for Photofacial treatment can explore alternative options tailored to their needs.

Typically, within seven days post-treatment, the body's natural elimination process expels fragmented melanin particles, resulting in a significant reduction or complete disappearance of previous spots or vascular patterns. Furthermore, the GentleMax Pro® Photofacial treatment at Envy Beauty Lab + Laser contributes to enhancing skin texture by stimulating collagen production.

While a single treatment can yield impressive results, additional sessions may sometimes be necessary. Optimal timing for this service is during the winter, and preparation includes consistent sunscreen application for several weeks preceding treatment.

Following the procedure, dark spots may temporarily intensify before flaking off, a process typically occurring within 7-10 days. Makeup can be applied afterward. Additionally, a specialized post-treatment skincare regimen is recommended for one week, conveniently available for purchase to support optimal healing and results.


Sun Damage + Age Spots

Sun damage can have detrimental effects on the skin, often manifesting as pigmentation irregularities, fine lines, wrinkles, and an overall aged appearance. Prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can lead to the overproduction of melanin, causing hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. Additionally, it can result in the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

At Envy Beauty Lab + Laser in Calgary, we address these concerns using the GentleMax Pro® laser by Candela, a cutting-edge technology designed to specifically target and treat sun damage. This advanced laser system emits precise wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the melanin in the skin, effectively breaking down excessive pigmentation without causing harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. By selectively targeting pigmented lesions, redness, and broken capillaries, the GentleMax Pro® laser promotes a more even skin tone and texture.

The treatment process involves the gradual elimination of damaged skin cells and the stimulation of collagen production, which aids in the rejuvenation of the skin. Over time, this leads to a reduction in the appearance of sunspots, age spots, and other signs of sun damage. The controlled application of the laser allows for a tailored approach, ensuring effective results while maintaining the skin's integrity and minimizing discomfort.

By choosing the GentleMax Pro® laser treatment at Envy Beauty Lab + Laser, clients can experience a safe and efficient solution for addressing sun damage. Our trained professionals customize each session to suit individual skin types and concerns, providing a comprehensive approach to restoring and revitalizing the skin's health and appearance.
