We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.




Dr. Berbari and her team prioritize patient and staff safety. Please familiarize yourself with these new procedures:


          Services will gradually resume from June 1 2020, respecting the social distancing guidelines issued by Public Health.


          Long-term follow-ups will resume as of June 22 2020 and will be carried out by telemedicine. Appointments will be given after July 6 2020 as needed.





           We have extended the time slots (fewer appointments per day) to give our employees time to disinfect the rooms between each patient.

           According to the above policies and dates, the contactless payment method will be favoured when making an appointment. Our staff will take your credit card number and the receipt will be emailed to you.

           You will then be invited to answer a COVID-19 questionnaire when booking the appointment (whether it is by email or by phone).

           N.B. follow-up appointments: we will contact you for follow-ups, as visits are now restricted to avoid contamination.



           Please show up on time out of respect for other patients.

           Once you arrive in the clinic parking lot, please announce your arrival by phone (819-243-7667).

           A member of our team will welcome you in the doorway for an evaluation (questionnaire, temperature, mask, hydro alcoholic gel).

           N.B .: Only patients will have access to the clinic, anyone else must remain in the parking lot.



          You will be taken directly to the treatment room.

          We opened door A for the aesthetic care (laser, radiofrequency, PRP etc.) of the MedicSPA and door B for surgery appointments and injections.

          After the appointment, you will be accompanied to the exit by a member of the team.


An explanatory video will be available on social media (@medicspa.gatineau on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM) and the website (drpatriciaberbari.com) on May 29 2020, to summarize these new procedures.


When interacting with our staff, understand that they have received strict directives, we ask you to respect them for your safety.

Lumecca: Advanced IPL Skin Treatment

Patients with pigmented or vascular lesions may feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of their skin. At our Gatineau, QC, cosmetic practice, Dr. Patricia Berbari 18 years' cosmetic practice experience will help you using the IPL Lumecca system to address uneven skin tone, rosacea, and sun damage in a treatment lasting under one hour. With years of experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Berbari is well-equipped to help patients achieve their unique aesthetic goals.

IPL treatment is simple: after applying a gel, your aesthetician uses a handpiece to deliver small pulses of light to the skin. 

How IPL Works

Intense pulsed light – or IPL – is an advanced, nonsurgical laser technology that can be used for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. In the field of cosmetic surgery, IPL is used to perform a wide array of skin treatments including photorejuvenation. 

IPL with Lumecca delivers up to three times more energy to improve the efficacy of treatment. Compared to traditional IPL, it also offers faster results and shorter treatment time. While standard IPL typically takes between four to six sessions, treatment with Lumecca can be completed in just one to two appointments.

What Conditions can Lumecca Treat?

Lumecca can treat a variety of skin conditions on every area of the body. This type of treatment is effective for improving the appearance of:

  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Large pores
  • Freckles
  • Wrinkles

If you are uncertain about whether IPL is appropriate for your goals, Dr. Berbari can evaluate your candidacy during a consultation. 

Lumecca delivers up to three times more energy to improve the efficacy of treatment.

Lumecca Benefits

Lumecca offers a number of benefits over traditional IPL. For example, Lumecca is:

  • Nonsurgical
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Faster than traditional IPL
  • Virtually pain-free

Consequently, this system can offer more comprehensive results with less time required for recovery. 

What to Expect during Treatment

Lumecca can usually be completed in under an hour at our office. To begin the treatment process, protective eyewear will be provided. This will shield you from the bright flashes of light. Next, a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area. This will provide lubrication and help keep the skin cool during the procedure.

Brief pulses of light will be applied to the skin via the handpiece. During this step, patients will feel a warming sensation and may experience slight discomfort, similar to the snap of a rubber band on the skin. Once the procedure is complete, the treatment area will be colled to soothe the skin.

Recovery following IPL with Lumecca is typically short. Patients may notice redness and a slight warming of the skin, although these side effects usually diminish within a few hours. Full results are typically noticeable just a few days to one week after the first session. After treatment, it is essential that patients protect the skin by wearing sunblock and avoiding excessive sun exposure.
