IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) can be used to visibly reduce the signs of aging and the damage caused by sun exposure, illness, hormonal changes, age spots, acne breakouts and photo aging
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. It is also known as IPL Laser treatment or photo rejuvenation and is a popular treatment for pigmentation, redness caused by spider veins and repairing skin texture. They also help to stimulate collagen production within the skin which will help to strengthen and improve the overall look of the skin.
What happens at the consultation appointment?
During your consultation we will go through a full consultation and your medical history, assess the results you are looking for and make sure that you are suitable for treatment. We will then talk you through the treatment process and perform a small patch test. The patch test helps us to see how your skin will react to a full treatment and to determine the settings we need for a full treatment.
Before Your Treatment
Please arrive with a clean face and no make-up on the skin. No fake tan for 10 days before treatment. This treatment is strictly NOT suitable for anyone with a tan or fake tan.
What Happens During My Treatment?
During your treatment, the laser handpiece will be placed onto your skin and a pulse of light will be directed to target several follicles at the same time. The handpiece is then moved across and repeated until the entire treatment area has been completed.
What will my skin look like after treatment?
IPL is a type of laser skin resurfacing so while you'll feel a slight sensation during the treatment it doesn't require extensive downtime. Skin may appear a little red after a session but will improve on its own after a few hours.
Risks And Complications
Mild redness is normal after treatment and goes down within a few hours. Darker pigmentation spots tend to crust over and will flake away from the skin around a week after treatment.
