is a procedure that treats a combination of changes in the skin such as premature aging caused by exposure to the sun that can result in damage such as pigmentation and vascular damage. Exclusively IPL offers a range of cost effective and professional skin rejuvenation treatments including:
- Reduction of pigmented lesions (sun spots)
- Reduction of vascular lesions
- Skin rejuvenation
- Acne treatment
- Photo rejuvenation
IPL works by emitting an intense pulse of light into the skin which is absorbed by elements with colour (chromophores) in the skin. The chromophores IPL can target include melanin – brown (in pigmented areas) and haemosiderin-red (in blood vessels). Once the photons from the light hit the chromophore it turns to heat energy, breaking up these abnormal areas, but leaving the healthy skin unaffected.
How many treatments will it take?
A typical guide to the number of treatments is:
Reduction of pigmented lesions (sun spots): 2 – 6 treatments
Reduction of vascular lesions: 2 – 6 treatments
Skin rejuventation: 4 – 6 treatments are recommended
