IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Skin Rejuvenation, also known as Intense Pulsed Light Laser Treatment, is a simple, non-invasive procedure to reverse damage caused by sun exposure and acne. It revitalises your skin, stimulating collagen production to visibly reduce imperfections, including pigmentation. Benefits include firmer skin, reduced pore size and a more even-textured, youthful appearance. IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that emits powerful bursts of light energy to treat sun spots, wrinkles, pigmented acne scarring, rosacea and vascular skin conditions without damaging the surface of the skin. IPL treatments are particularly well-suited to sun-damaged skin that suffers from redness, freckles, brown spots and uneven skin texture.
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.
