As the population ages, ever increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. We are all born with beautiful skin, unfortunately many of us ruin our skin with exposure to harmful free radicals, UV rays from the sun and other environmental toxins such as smoking, excessive alcohol and drugs resulting in photo-aged skin’s.
IPL skin rejuvenation works by a broad spectrum light that penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either blood (vascular lesions/broken capillaries) or melanin (freckles) and denatures (damages) it. The body’s natural processes will then remove the injured tissue, leaving the skin with a more even tone and youthful looking appearance.
What can be addressed with IPL treatment?
Using our state of the art M22 from Lumenis, IPL photorejuvenation will improve the appearance of photo aged skin, it will remove age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown spots, redness caused by vascular lesions (capillaries), and reduces pore size while stimulating collagen and elastin fibres.
During treatment you may feel a slight sting similar to that of a small elastic band to the treated area.
This treatment can be carried out all year round. We kindly ask that you have no “active tan” or the use of fake/chemical tans to the area to be treated during the course of IPL treatment.
How Many treatments are needed?
To achieve maximum results, a series of 3 – 5 IPL treatments is recommended, depending on skin condition, at 3 – 4 week intervals. You may require IPL to be used in conjunction with other treatments for ideal results.
What to expect post treatment?
Post treatment you may feel flushed and appear red, similar to that of an exercise workout. Brown age spots (pigmentation) will darken, as will vascular lesions (capillaries). This will clear anywhere from 3 to 10 days leaving the skin more even, refined and glowing.
IPL can be used to treat the face, neck, chest, hands and most other parts of the body. This is an ideal treatment for those with a more active lifestyle as the procedure requires minimal downtime with a low risk of side effects.
We ask that you have no “active tan” or the use of fake/chemical tans to the area to be treated during the course of IPL treatment.
