IPL Acne/Redness & Pigment Reduction - Coming summer 2021

WHAT IS IPL – INTENSE PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT?

IPL is a non-invasive light-based technology used to remove unwanted hair and improve many skin conditions. Such conditions as age spots, sun spots, freckles, superficial capillaries and other unsightly discolouration of the skin can be eliminated using this technology. IPL is also incredibly effective for those of us who suffer from facial redness and can even stimulate fibroblast causing increased collagen production in your skin for a more natural, lively, healthier looking you!

How does IPL work?
A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin and generate an intense pulse of light which will be absorbed by targets in your skin. The light delivered from the hand piece is delivered at high intensity during a very short period of time. It is this rapid discharge of light that provides the high energy levels required for each IPL treatment to be effective!

Acne Management

Skin Clearing with IPL:

Our trained clinicians are able to offer IPL based acne management programs for their clients.  These unique treatments are designed to specifically slow the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general.  Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition.  Treatment should be spaced approximately 1 – 2 weeks apart.

IPL acne management targets acne-prone skin to reduce acne bacteria, breakouts and inflammation for a clearer, more balanced and healthier looking complexion.

IPL in combination:

IPL will often play a role in a combination with various other treatment methods to help greatly improve acne.  These may include  microdermabrasion/peels/LED/microneedling. 

IPL Rosacea/Redness Reduction

Redness Reduction with IPL:

Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population!  Our trained clinicians can offer treatments which will reduce facial blemishes such as red flushing and red spots found on cheeks and around the nose with minimal downtime or risk.   A treatment cycle of 4 – 6 treatments spaced two to three weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome.  

Spider veins, broken capillaries, red spots and rosacea can all be reduced and removed to offer clients an even, more uniform complexion. 

IPL Pigmentation Reduction

Skin Tone Correction with IPL:

Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has one or more sun spots, freckles or skin discolouration they’d love to get rid of!  An examination of your moles by one of our doctors is required prior to commencing your treatment cycle. This is to ensure there is no evidence of any skin cancer.  A series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced 4 week apart are required for optimal results.  Treatments areas such as backs of hands, forearms, décolletage and face will respond well.

IPL pigmentation correction effectively fades and removes age spots, sun spots and discolouration to greatly improve overall skin tone, texture and radiance.

Photo Rejuvenation

Everybody loves the sunshine!  Limited exposure is good for the soul and the immediate effects it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired.  However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen, which in turn causes damage to the skin making it feel wrinkled and coarse and looking red and tired.  Skin rejuvenation treatments will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the production of collagen in the skin.  

Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth out irregularities and  enhance your skin’s  overall luminosity for a revitalised, youthful  glow with IPL photo rejuvenation.
