IPL Skin Rejuvenation & Laser Hair Reduction
Intense Pulsed Light is effective for treating many types of pigmentation or sun spots and can be removed with just 1 - 3 treatments, depending on the severity. The cooled hand piece increases client comfort and minimizes adverse skin reactions that can occur. The Intense Pulsed Light is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. Soon after treatment the spots will darken. Over the next few weeks the darkened spots will fade and some will flake off – don’t pick these off or use any abrasive cleanser or exfoliants. Any future sun exposure without suitable protection will make pigmentation spots darker over time.
Intense Pulsed Light treats a broad range of vessels, particularly spider veins, broken capillaries (or telangiectasia). Results may be seen after your first treatment but a possible 6 or more may be required depending on the severity. It works by delivering pulses of light energy which causes blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later re-absorbed by your body and blood flow will be redirected. All healing takes place below the skin surface. A slight reddening and local swelling of the skin may appear but this will subside within 24 hours. It is recommended not to take hot baths or showers or do gym activities for 12 hours after treatment as blood must not be pumped through the vessel. Extreme weather conditions (going from hot to cold temperatures), excessive smoking or drinking or eating hot spicy foods could cause new vessels to appear over time.
Intense Pulsed Light can help bad acne lesions by reducing over growth of bacteria and speeding up skin healing. The number of treatments will depend on the severity of congestion. Best results are achieved with combined IPL treatments and a tailor made skin care program.

Laser removes hair from all parts of the body including face, legs, arms, underarms, back, chest, tummy and bikini area. Laser works by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all the hair follicles in a given area. Four to six weekly intervals between treatments is advised to get best results for most areas. Most areas require a minimum of 6 treatments but you may need up to 10 depending on various factors such as hair thickness, hair colour, the area being treated and your growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but go through three distinct phases - growth, regression and resting. The sensation of Laser varies from person to person and also depends on the area being treated. Our Triple Wave Diode Laser has a cooling head which allows safe treatment, cooling the skin down to minus 5 degrees allowing for minimum discomfort. Slight redness or localised swelling may appear following your treatment. After 7 days approx. you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair but after a further two weeks most of these hairs will shed. It is important not to wax or pluck between treatments but it is fine to shave.
