IPL SKIN rejuvenation

Want smooth, even skin that glows with natural radiance? We’ve got you covered.

When treating unwanted areas of pigmentation, targeted areas absorb the light from the IPL and become hot, but not for long enough to burn. This heat breaks down the pigmentation into tiny particles which then rise to the skin’s surface giving a milo-effect, this then gradually lightens and flakes off the skin naturally within 7-10 days. When treating fine lines and wrinkles, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin feel plumper and more youthful.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a type of intensive broadband and incoherent light with a wavelength spectrum of 420-1200nm. IPL provides a wide range of non-invasive application based on the skins selective absorption. Because IPL uses a much broader spectrum of light than laser, it is able to deliver a wider range of aesthetic treatments and treat a broader range of skin types.

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through the transparent handpiece using cut-off filters to change the wavelength range. This allows it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. When treating unwanted areas of pigmentation, targeted areas momentarily absorb the light and become hot, but not for long enough to burn. This heat breaks down the pigmentation into tiny particles which then rise to the skin’s surface giving a milo-effect, this then gradually lightens and flakes off the skin naturally within 7-10 days. When treating fine lines and wrinkles, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin feel plumper and more youthful.

Treatments can be performed on the face and body at 4-week intervals. We advise you have regular skin checks to check any suspicious lesions prior to IPL treatments.

It is important to note that first time clients of the IPL treatments are required to take a Test Patch before the actual treatment.

Frequently asked questions

You may feel a sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band each time the IPL is applied to the skin, although the IPL head does have built-in cooling so this will take away from any discomfort you may experience in the skin and feel more pleasant.

To help minimise the possibility of any adverse skin reactions and/or side effects we strongly recommend avoiding the following for approximately 3 to 5 weeks prior to treatment:

  • Sun exposure, an SPF 30+ is mandatory
  • Please don’t apply any fake tans, bronzers etc. beforehand
  • No prescription strength exfoliates
  • Please advise of all medications, skin creams or medication at the time of consultation.

Immediately after the treatment, your skin may feel quite warm and may have a stinging sensation like sunburnt skin, which will calm down over a couple of hours.  This is a desired reaction as we want to successfully heat the skin to the point of having a successful effect on the target area. If treating pigment you will notice the spots will darken in the first 24-48 hours and may slowly crust allowing the spots to gently flake off over the next 1-2 weeks leaving you with lighter spots if any.
