Intense Pulse Light Treatment
- Reduces redness and rosacea
- Improves acne and post acne pigmentation.
- Reduces sun spots and photo-aging
This treatment has also been proven to be successful when used against acne, post-acne hyperpigmentation, sunspots and photo-ageing. IPL wavelengths target melanin found in pigment and oxyhaemoglobin found in blood vessels. By destroying the target areas with a laser, IPL treats these areas successfully without affecting or damaging surrounding tissue. These targeted cells are destroyed by the absorption of light and the transfer of energy.
IPL is different from a laser because it uses multiple wavelengths rather than just one. It achieves rapid photo-rejuvenation by using these wavelengths to penetrate the skin at different levels to treat the targeted areas. This stimulates the production of collagen, a naturally-occurring protein that helps heal and revitalise the skin.
The IPL device can be customised to suit your skin type and achieve maximum results as quickly as possible, but it is best suited to those with fair to light brown skin (skin types I-III).
A soothing gel is applied to the skin to help the laser hand-piece glide across the skin. Eye-protection is applied and a flash of light is seen as the laser hand-piece passes over the skin.
