IPL Laser Treatment

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatment is unique for its ability to distribute a spectrum of light over a treated area. Since most other laser treatments only omit light in one wavelength, having the ability to give treatments with a spectrum of light means more versatility in handling different conditions.

How Does an IPL Treatment in Kelowna Work?

IPL uses energy from a spectrum of light wavelengths to heat a targeted skin area, damaging the problem layers of skin and causing the body to eliminate the unwanted tissue. As the tissue is discarded, the body produces new, fresh layers of skin, void of problems/defects.

  • I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Crippen for awhile now, he does botox injections for me every 3 months. I was very nervous at first, but the staff and Dr. Crippen made me feel at ease right away. He is a wonderful Doctor, very caring and does a fantastic job. I highly recommend Dr. Crippen. Staff is also excellent!!! Thank you.

  • Dr. Crippen is an absolute maser with Botox. I’ve had little filler implants done around my face, my ears and lips so far, and each operation came out looking exactly the way I had hoped. Not too puffy, not too thin.

  • This place does the best work of all the skincare clinics I’ve tried in the Vancouver area. I go back periodically for new botox and juvederm injections, and they always make it look brand new and just right every single time. This place has earned my business.

  • I was deeply impressed with the work of this clinic. We visited for my teenage daughter after over-the-counter medications had failed her. The acne removal treatment recommended and performed by Doctor Crippen was incredibly effective. We’ve been back for a couple more treatments over the years, and they are all as effective. I wanted to note in particular that he and the staff had a wonderful manner while administering treatment. My daughter typically hates clinical environments but she always felt very comfortable here.

  • This is the only place that I’ve gone for age spots since it opened. I loved how easily I could schedule at short notice, and the commitment the staff showed to making sure that I understood everything I wanted to know. I was treated very well here.

  • I loved how little time it took to set up the chemical peel treatment and to get it. Your clinic made the day very convenient for me, especially since two other clinics had already told me that they couldn’t fit me in that. Your chemical peel was also one of the most effective that I’ve ever had. I’m extremely satisfied.

  • I had excellent results with a Coolsculpting operation at this clinic. Dr. Crippen took me through everything I wanted to know before we started, and I was still surprised at how easy it was. It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight.

    Ami Hamann Aug 26, 2014
  • My coolsculpting treatment was first performed at this clinic, at the Kelowna location, which might be their only one. I’ve never had coolsculpting performed anywhere else, so I can’t judge the quality compared to other clinics, but it was really effective. The procedure was completely painless and didn’t even feel uncomfortable. The easiest weight I have ever lost.

    Ron Woodhouse Jul 06, 2014
  • Dr Crippen performed the Juvederm treatment in a highly professional, caring and pleasant manner. I found the entire experience to be a comfortable one and despite having some initial reservations/nervousness, both he and his extremely competent staff, made me feel totally at ease and reassured. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire experience of being treated by Dr Crippen and his staff.

  • I chose DermMedica hoping they would be able to help me with my lips. Dr. Crippen recommended a Juvederm filler, and I’m thrilled with both how easy it was and how great it looks. I was particularly pleased with the end result of the lip filler because I’ve had friends with that swollen look, and I did not want any part of that.

What Conditions Does an IPL Laser Treat?

What is the Procedure for an IPL Laser Treatment?

At DermMedica, the average IPL appointment is 30 minutes and involves several steps. First the targeted area is cleaned and dried in preparation for the laser treatment. Next, a numbing cream or cooling gel is applied over the treatment area to minimize any discomfort caused by the upcoming procedure. Lastly, the IPL laser treatment is administered to the targeted area.

What is the Recovery Time after IPL Treatment?

Immediate – patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately. Skin may remain red from the treatment for 1-3 days. These temporary effects should not cause any interference with normal activity. In the case of Brown Spots, patients can expect the treated spots to turn darker brown and then flake off the skin in the 1-2 weeks following the treatment. To ensure optimal recovery it is recommended that patients avoid sun exposure and keep the skin well moisturized.

What Are the Expected Results of an IPL Laser Treatment?

More even color of the skin, less irregularity, and an even complexion are the common results of an IPL treatment. Best results are always achieved with a series of 1-4 treatments.
