IPL Photo Treatment

Photo Rejuvenation

A clear complexion is something many people want, but even with the most meticulous skincare regimen, blemish-free skin can be difficult to achieve. Photo Rejuvenation, which uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, can help reduce the appearance of some of the most common skin woes, including brown spots, melasma, broken capillaries and sun spots. This minimally invasive skin procedure can also treat signs of aging such as wrinkles or age spots. There’s very little recovery time and few side effects, making it a popular procedure.

What is IPL Photo Rejuvenation used for?

IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments are most commonly used for:
• Lightening and removing “sun spots”, “age spots”, and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body
• Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and “broken” blood vessels on the face, neck and chest
• Helping to control flushing
• It also has a lesser effect of improving skin texture through collagen stimulation and improves pore size minimally by temporarily reducing oiliness

Find out more about our IPL photo treatment 

How does it work?
IPL photo treatment works by delivering light into the upper layers of the skin and being absorbed by the melanin or haemoglobin in the blood (depending on what we are treating). Light and pulse length is controlled by one of our highly experienced IPL specialists.

Is it for me?
IPL photo treatment is suitable for men and woman of all ages with many different skin concerns and imperfections. It is suitable for most people but unfortunately not everyone, which is why we offer a free consultation to assess and discuss your skin concerns and see if this treatment method is right for you. If in doubt, book your consultation with us today.

How long does it take?
Targeting treatments such as thread veins, pigmentation, scarring and rosacea normally take only 30-45mins, whereas full facial line softening is a 1 hour facial treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
This is totally dependent on each individual. It is normally recommended that a course of 3 or 6 treatments are carried out for the best possible results, one every 4 weeks. One-off treatments can be done as a trial or to top-up existing treatments. We will advise you which course is right for you at your consultation.

I’m interested, how can I find out more?
We offer a free consultation for everyone, so if you are interested and would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to book in for your free consultation.

In your consultation, we will offer you a free patch test in which you can experience how the treatment will feel. You can then start your treatment after 4 days from your patch test.
Photo Rejuvenation
Blemish-free skin can be difficult to achieve. Photo Rejuvenation uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, and can help to reduce the appearance of some of the most common skin woes with few side effects and very little recovery time.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments may be used for:

  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
  • Wrinkles
  • Texture problems
  • Large, visible pores
  • Melasma
  • Excessive flushing
  • Freckles
  • Age and sun spots
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

Photo Rejuvenation usually requires a series of 3-6 treatments, one every three to six weeks. The benefits of Photo Rejuvenation treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk. Some offices refer to IPL laser Photo Rejuvenation as a Photofacial or Fotofacial.

How does the IPL treatment work?

The laser/IPL device emits a range of lightwaves that target haemoglobin (red blood cells) or melanin (the brown pigment in freckles or age spots). The light beam is absorbed by either haemoglobin or melanin resulting in damage to the vessel wall or fragmenting of melanin pigment. These tiny vessels and the melanin pigment are then absorbed by the body, rendering them less visible.

How long does it take for laser Photo Rejuvenation treatments to work?

Most people need a course of 3-6 treatments about 1 month apart. You can see some improvement with each treatment, but it’s common for your response to be slightly different after each treatment. The more sun damage or redness you have, the more likely you are to need a full six treatments. Some cases of severe redness or brown spots require more than 6 treatments. Expect to see gradual clearing over time.

Do IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments hurt and how long will they take?

There may be mild discomfort during the treatment, but most patients tolerate removal of dilated blood vessels or age spots/freckles and fine lines very easily. The first treatment is usually the “zingiest.” As your skin begins to clear, the treatments usually become even more comfortable. Many clients liken the feeling to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Treatments usually take 30-90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

IPL Rosacea Treatment

Are you suffering from Rosacea? Perhaps you find yourself avoiding certain triggers that make your Rosacea worse or you avoid some social situations because your Rosacea makes you feel self-conscious or embarrassed? Although Rosacea is relatively common – affecting 10% of adults – we understand that it can be a very distressing condition.

We have found that IPL treatments can significantly improve the appearance of redness and thread veins caused by Rosacea. It is believed that the light from IPL has two actions that help in Rosacea.

Firstly, red thread veins absorb the light energy, which makes them hot. This damage encourages the body to reabsorb the veins, improving and fading their appearance.

Secondly, the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin. This stimulates new collagen and collagen remodelling, which improves the support of the small blood vessels and helps to delay the development of more thread veins.

Although rosacea can't be cured, treatment can help keep the symptoms under control.

You will likely need a series of 6-8 treatments spaced a month apart, and should plan on being out of the sun immediately before and after these treatments. After you get your rosacea treated, the effect should last about one year. It is not uncommon to have to return for yearly or even semi-annual touch-ups. We are just treating one part of the problem and your genetic background and environmental exposure, diet and UV exposure will be important to keep things in check.

IPL Acne Treatment

IPL is an ideal drug-free treatment for mild and moderate inflammatory acne, for which we get remarkable results. Acne is very often caused by internal factors such as hormonal imbalance, stress and food allergies. Ideally, the treatment should be combined with methods to deal with the underlying problem in order to clear the acne permanently.

This is a wonderful treatment for clearing an annoying spot or boil, especially before an important event where looking good is essential. In this case it would be best to use the treatment a week before the special date. It is also great for anyone with permanent acne, as they will greatly benefit from regular treatments.

The innovative and advanced IPL system filters light from a flash lamp in two targeted ways to ensure that only light with the appropriate wavelength is allowed to reach the skin to prevent future acne. Haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, absorbs this light and heats up in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes minor injury to the sebaceous glands, which decreases the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.

This solution to dealing with acne is easy and essentially painless, as any potentially harmful wavelengths are filtered out by our advanced IPL system.

A consultation with one of our trained specialists and a patch test is required before all laser and IPL treatments.
