IPL skin rejuvenation

IPL skin rejuvenation – also known as photo rejuvenation – is a non-invasive treatment that can help to remove or reduce the signs of ageing and irregularities in skin tone and condition.

We use an advanced form of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology to precisely and safely treat problem areas of skin anywhere on the face and body, including:

  • acne

  • redness, flushing and rosacea,

  • dilated and ‘broken’ blood vessels

  • sun spots or age spots

  • lentigo

  • melasma

  • Pigmentation

How does the treatment work?

The IPL device has interchangeable filters that use different frequencies of laser light energy and enable it to customise treatment according to lesion and skin type.

IPL photo rejuvenation is great to help improve skin texture by stimulating production of collagen.

How many sessions will I need?

You will need a series of treatments (for most conditions usually a course of 3 to 5 sessions), with about a month between each session.

 
When will I see the results?

You should see a gradual improvement in your skin, over the course of the treatments, often with a slightly different response after each session.

 
How long does it take?

Treatment sessions usually take between 30 and 50, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Is the treatment painful?

You may experience some mild discomfort, more so during your first treatment session.

However most people find it easy to tolerate and as your skin begins to improve, the treatments should become even more comfortable.

Are there any side effects?

After your first treatment session, you will see some redness and slight swelling in the treated area, possibly with a slight darkening of the brown spots on the skin.

These side effects should lessen in a few hours, and completely disappear within a few days, and be less noticeable after subsequent treatment sessions.

You can return to work or carry on with your day immediately after the treatment session.

How long do the results of IPL skin rejuvenation treatment last?

We will discuss expected results and number of treatment sessions during your consultation for the procedure, and will answer any questions or concerns you have.
