As we get older the effects of the sun, smoking, diet and pollution take its toll on our skin and less collagen is produced. Collagen is the tough fibrous protein present in our skin, which gives us our texture our elasticity.
The appearance of brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, thread veins and age pigmentation spots can make you look older than you actually are. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment can soften and reduce the appearance of a number of very specific skin problems and conditions including:
IPL uses flashes of light that heat the targeted dermal tissue layers without disruption to or removal of the outer epidermal layers of the skin, which stimulates the area to produce natural collagen. This procedure is usually described in the cosmetic industry as photo-rejuvenation, and can result in removing skin pigmentation, thread veins and fine/wrinkle lines.
A cooling gel is first applied to the area to be treated and you’ll be asked to wear protective eye-wear. The IPL machine is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that eliminate the pigment or imperfection without damaging surrounding tissue.
Skin rejuvenation using IPL merely creates a feeling of warmth, so no discomfort should be experienced during or after treatment.
For up to eight hours following your treatment, your skin may appear a little red. After a course of treatments your skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated. You will also see an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. You will find a significant reduction of brown and red areas of discolouration and even a reduction of pore size.
Treatments will need to be four weeks apart and a course of six treatments is recommended for best results. In addition, we recommended top-up treatments one to two times a year thereafter.
A free consultation is required before all of our treatments. This will involve a patch test to determine your skin type, ensuring the best possible results. Depending on the results of the patch, we can usually begin treatments
within 24-48 hours.
