How does this treatment work?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and is a form of light therapy. Using a computer-controlled machine, each IPL treatment setting is personalised for an individual skin type and condition. Broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin, for both skin rejuvenation and hair reduction.
The skin absorbs the light converting it to heat, which brings new life to cellular tissues such as collagen and elastin. These fibres are stimulated to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation or capillaries that contribute to the appearance of rosacea.
IPL is also an effective treatment of acneic skin. The light therapy targets the bacterial layer under the skin to fight the infection directly, reducing the formation of active acne cysts and treat acne scar hyper-pigment.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Fair skin type are the best candidates for this treatment, dark or deeply tanned skin is not suitable for IPL treatments.
How many do I need?
For best results IPL therapy is recommended once every three to four weeks for four consecutive treatments.
What specific skin problems does IPL treat?
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is highly effective for targeting specific conditions such as, facial redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels, broken blood vessels, oiliness, and flushing. Aside from all these benefits, this treatment also helps stimulate the production of collagen and improves pore size.
