IPL Facials Treatments
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy is an effective treatment to correct many hard to treat skin conditions and concerns. This advanced light treatment can help to treat rosacea, acne, thread veins, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, sun spots and many common signs of ageing. IPL can provide an incredibly targeted treatment, focusing only on the areas of concern.
PL uses a range of light wavelengths that penetrate deep into the skin’s tissue where the melanin absorbs the light. This means it can not be used on darker skin tones.
Facial Thread Veins, Rosacea and Facial Redness Therapy
IPL Red Light is the only treatment that is extremely effective on rosacea.
Laser light is pulsed through the skin’s surface, targeting the desired area in the underlying tissue, helping to reduce redness at a deeper level. Blood vessel walls are actually transparent! Therefor IPL treatments depend on the absorption by blood cells flowing through the vessel. Blood is heated by IPL and laser, as the heat flows outwards it coagulates vessel walls to seal and heal the vein resulting in no visible thread veins or redness. By combining this with a ND YAG Laser treatment I can ensure your skin is healed with a more even skin tone and texture. The skin may appear instantly more red after the treatment however this subsides over the next couple of hours. Thread Veins may appear darker for 2-3 days before they begin to lighten and disperse.
Active Acne Infection Therapy Therapy
IPL technology utilises light flashes over the treatment area, the wavelength of blue light has an antimicrobial effect, triggering biochemical response and creating oxygen in the skin that will eventually kill the Propionibacterium within each pore. This treatment is great for active acne however not Acne scaring. Phototherapy is an option for stubborn acne that doesn’t improve with other treatments.
Pigmented Lesions Treatment – Freckles and Ages Spots
IPL is an effective way to treat freckles and pigmentation. Light energy is more efficiently absorbed by darker areas of pigmentation in the skin and breaks down the excess melanin that forms the basis of each freckle and it naturally taken away by the body’s immune system. Adjacent areas of skin that do not contain excess melanin remain unaffected. The areas of pigmentation may scab after the treatment as the pigment is lifted out of the skin revealing a smooth even skin complexion.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is ideal for dull, ageing skin, it treats lines and wrinkles, sun damage, light pigment blemishes and gives the skin an over all glowing appearance, with no visible signs on the skin that a treatment has been done. The wavelength of the light targets the fibroblast cell within the skin leading to collagen remodelling. The production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in lines, making the skin smooth and youthful. Improving the overall texture with the skin appearing brighter and tighter.
Please be aware every IPL new client needs a patch test 48 hour prior to their appointment, for mixed race and asian skin types please allow 2 weeks.
