Excessive sun exposure can cause premature ageing of our skin with reduced elasticity, uneven pigmentation and red veins. We have the perfect solution.
WHAT IS IPL PHOTOFACIAL? The IPL Photofacial treatment uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce younger-looking skin that's firmer and more even in tone and texture. Our unique IPL technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolourations and unwanted blood vessels.
HOW DOES IT WORK? A cool gel is applied to the treated area which conducts a pulse of light emitted from the hand piece into the skin. Anything in that area of skin which is either brown or red absorbs the light creating heat damage and is cauterised (i.e. pigmented cells and red veins are treated and reduced by the heat they absorb from the IPL machine).
The Lumenis IPL Rejuvenation treatment works with your skin to removal your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fibre production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots can be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Fades or reduces pigmentation, age spots and sun induced freckles
Reduces fine broken capillaries, red veins and other minor vascular problems
Improves skin texture and overall complexion. Your facial skin looks and feels refreshed, dewy and more youthful
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW? After the session there may be some redness and you can possibly feel a mild sunburn sensation for the rest of the day. There is no downtime and you can resume the day’s activities straight after your treatment.
IPL is a very safe treatment but the very bright flash of light can damage the retina so both the provider and patient are required to wear protective eye wear for the treatment.
If your skin colour is very dark or you have developed a recent tan then there is a small possibility of burning the skin and the IPL provider will adjust the treatment accordingly to try to avoid any such problems. A few test shots in a less visible location may be helpful in determining the correct settings.
