Delivering intense pulsed light to the skin and is absorbed by unwanted skin pigmentations, causing the pigment to shatter and seal the surrounding small blood vessels.

What IPL Skin Treatments are available?

 

 

Skin Rejuvenation

 

Skin Rejuvenation treatments offer a solution for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as brown spots (pigmentation), redness (thread veins) and uneven skin texture, lines and wrinkles.

By using precisely controlled short pulses of light to target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation FAQ

 

Am I suitable for treatment? 

Yes, treatment is suitable for most people. We recommend a full consultation to ascertain your suitability and to allow the treatment to be tailored to your needs. 

Are there any side effects? 

The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after treatment but this usually subsides quickly. Very rarely a small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most people experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours. 

What should I expect after the treatment? 

Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. A cooling pack is applied after treatment to calm the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they flake off, leading to a more even skin tone. Tightening of the skin should increase over the following months as new collagen is produced within the dermis. 

How many treatments are necessary? 

Treatments are carried out every 3 to 4 weeks and 6 treatments are recommended for best results. Thereafter, top-up sessions are performed as required, but typically once or twice a year. 

 

What are Skin Pigmentation Treatments?

Pigmented lesions such as sunspots and freckles can be successfully removed creating a more flawless, youthful and glowing appearance.

The light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.

IPL Skin Pigmentation Treatment FAQ

 

Am I suitable for treatment? 

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark-skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist. Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles. 

 

What should I expect after the treatment? 

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post-treatment. The lesions may darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and ‘flake’ away. Sometimes an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.

 

Are there any side effects? 

The skin that surrounds the pigmented lesion may become red immediately after treatment. Most people experience no other side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days. Very rarely a small blister may form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker. 

 

How many treatments are necessary? 

The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the pigmented lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions are required at 4 to 6-week intervals.

 

 

What are treatments for Red Veins?

Long term solution can be provided for facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins and red spots in just a few quick and easy treatments.

Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
