IPL Skin Rejuvenation / IPL Vascular Treatment / IPL Pigmentation

IPL Skin Rejuvenation/Vascular Treatment/Pigmentation – Intense Pulse Light (IPL) targets Pigmentation, brown spots, sun spots, general sun damage, freckles, red vessels, broke capillaries, redness/rosacea and uneven skin tone.  It also simulates collagen resulting in a lighter, brighter and more youthful skin.

When brown areas are treated, the area will become darker for a few days and after the treatment, and the skin will gradually slough off commencing day 4 producing a new clear, youthful complexion.  Red Vessels typically fade immediately.  For approximately 1 to 2 hours some clients feel a sensation like milk sunburn.

Depending upon the condition and the areas to be treated 1 to 3 treatments may be required to assure a new radiant skin.

REMEMBER – PATCH TESTS CANNOT BE PERFORMED IF YOU HAVE HAD RECENT SUN EXPOSURE

An appointment is required for a test patch prior to treatment.  At this time your skin will be fully assessed and the procedure explained in full.  

Introduction to IPL

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a popular cosmetic treatment that can be used to treat various skin conditions such as skin rejuvenation, vascular lesions, and pigmentation. IPL treatments are non-invasive and use light energy to target specific areas of the skin without damaging surrounding tissues. In this article, we will discuss IPL skin rejuvenation, IPL vascular treatment, and IPL pigmentation treatment in detail.

Understanding IPL

IPL is a type of light therapy that uses a broad-spectrum light to treat different skin conditions. IPL machines use filters to selectively filter out unwanted wavelengths, making it possible to target specific skin structures such as melanin, hemoglobin, and collagen. IPL treatments are non-ablative, meaning they do not remove the top layer of skin, and are non-invasive, meaning they do not require any incisions.

How IPL Skin Rejuvenation Works

IPL skin rejuvenation is a popular cosmetic treatment that uses light energy to target specific areas of the skin. During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver pulses of light to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin and hemoglobin in the skin, which stimulates collagen production and encourages the skin to heal itself. IPL skin rejuvenation can improve the texture and tone of the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and minimise pores.

Benefits of IPL Skin Rejuvenation

There are many benefits to IPL skin rejuvenation, including:

  • Non-invasive
  • No downtime
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Improves texture and tone of skin
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes pores
  • Safe for most skin types

Who is a Good Candidate for IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

IPL skin rejuvenation is suitable for those who have:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores

However, individuals with very dark skin or a history of skin cancer should avoid IPL treatments.

IPL Vascular Treatment Explained

IPL vascular treatment is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to target the blood vessels in the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and collapse. IPL vascular treatment is an effective way to reduce the appearance of spider veins, rosacea, and other vascular lesions.

How IPL Vascular Treatment Works

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver pulses of light to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and collapse. The body then naturally removes the damaged blood vessels, leaving the skin looking clear and smooth.

IPL Pigmentation Explained

IPL pigmentation treatment is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to target the melanin in the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin, causing it to break down and fade. IPL pigmentation treatment is an effective way to reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, and other pigmentation issues.

How IPL Pigmentation Works

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver pulses of light to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin in the skin, causing it to break down and fade over time. IPL pigmentation treatment is an effective way to even out skin tone and improve the appearance of the skin.

These side effects are usually mild and temporary, and most people can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
