Variable Pulse Light

VPL (variable pulse light) is an advanced technology, comparable to IPL, using multiple micro pulses in one application rather than one boost of light energy. This allows for a safer, less painful treatment that works across a greater variety of skin types.

At Face & Body Boutique we use the VPL Ultra Plus Energist to target multiple issues, including redness in the skin, rosacea, blood vessels, hyperpigmentation, acne, age spots and hair removal.  VPL (variable pulsed light) is an advanced technology, comparable to IPL, using multiple micro pulses in one application rather than one boost of light energy.

How does it work?

Lasers treat a target in the skin called a chromophore. Chromophores come in two types: melanin (the pigment in sun damage, age spots, and hair follicles) and oxyhemoglobin (the redness in scars, blood vessels or rosacea). The specific wavelengths in laser treatments serve to destroy these chromophores. VPL Ultra Plus Energist allows for treatment of various issues by emitting the right wavelength for each type of treatment.

What to expect?

Scars, redness, spider veins and telangiectasia are targeted by the VPL, which works by causing the vessels to vasoconstrict, become paler and eventually disappear. Downtime for this procedure is minimal, but you may notice a little swelling and diffuse redness. VPL will clear up the redness, even up your skin tone and give your skin a renewed glow.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate is a healthy person that is looking to treat their scars from acne, surgery or injury. It is extremely important to use sun protection and to avoid tanning beds for 2 weeks post procedure. Pregnancy and breastfeeding are contraindications to VPL.

Is there any aftercare required?

Downtime for this procedure is minimal, but you may notice a little swelling and diffuse redness.

Is it safe?

As with all laser -or light treatments, there is a risk that the treated skin becomes darker or lighter. Most of the times this is not permanent and disappears after a while. If the skin is tanned, the chances of this happening are somewhat larger. We recommend you not to tan sunbath two weeks before the treatment and four weeks after the treatment. In addition, it is advisable to use a good sunscreen during this period.

The treatment is very simple. Just a few injections in the targeted area with minimal pain.

The procedure takes 10 to 20 minutes (short enough to come during your lunch break). Immediately after, there may be a small amount of swelling or redness that typically disappears in 15 minutes. Localized bruising is possible but uncommon.

The result becomes visible after 3 to 4 days, and the effect lasts on average 3 to 4 months.  The treatment is completely effective after 2 weeks.  We invite our patients to come in at the 2 week follow up to ensure that their results are perfect. Treatment can be repeated as needed.
