Restore and Rejuvenate Your Skin with Intense Pulsed Light Therapy.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is designed to help reduce the appearance of a number of specific skin problems.
If you’re concerned about sun damage, age pigmentation, acne, or fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment could help restore the condition of your skin.
During an IPL procedure, intense light from a range of wavelengths is focused on the specific parts of your skin that you are treating.
The IPL device itself is gently pressed onto the skin, with a smooth, transparent surface emitting the light on the targeted areas. This light helps to spur on the production of collagen, which will help to fill in lines and wrinkles or shallow scarring, while also reducing redness, discolouration, and spots.
Depending on what is being treated, the exact wavelength range can be adjusted to optimise results.
What results can I expect?
After one session your skin will feel plumper and more supported, as well as reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A course of 3-6 treatments is usually recommended to achieve the best results, which should be completed every 4 weeks.
While IPL is considered a long-lasting solution and having a positive impact on many facial skin conditions - it is not a permanent solution.
Prior to treatment please let us know if you have recently been in the sun.
strongly advise to avoid any acid based products including retinol and glycolic for 1 week prior to the treatment.
It is important to avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks after the treatment to reduce the chance of dark and light spots, and wear SPF daily.
IPL with other treatments
IPL is effective in itself but a combination of treatments could enhance results further.
Other treatments capable of giving you firmer, younger-looking skin include Microdermabrasion and facial peels.
Botox and Fillers can also enhance your results.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much downtime is there after treatments?
After the treatment your skin may feel a little flushed from the heat of the
stimulation of the collagen.
What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment feels like a warming sensation that feels like your lying on a beach
in the Caribbean! Lots of clients ask if it’s painful and the answer is NO! It’s a really
lovely treatment to have.
How quickly will I notice results?
Results can often be seen immediately after treatment however some of the
results can take a number of weeks to show as the collagen production takes time to
form and to come to the surface of the skin.
