Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation offers a solution for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as brown spots (pigmentation), redness (thread veins) and uneven skin texture (collagen).
"I am really pleased; so many people have said I look younger."
"The treatments have given me so much more confidence."
"I’m delighted with the results. The difference was noticeable after only a few treatments"
Intense Pulsed Light systems release precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin. In addition, specific lesions such as thread veins, age spots and freckles can be targeted resulting in a more uniform complexion. The skin becomes firmer, appears more radiant and enlarged pores are reduced. Nd:YAG Laser may be selected to target deeper lines and to promote further collagen production.
The skin is thoroughly cleansed, and a mild relaxing skin peel, or microdermabrasion is often performed before the Intense Pulsed Light or Laser treatment to maximise the results. Exfoliating the skin to remove the top layers of dead skin leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft. A thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. The light applicator is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The handpiece is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area cooled. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.
Yes, treatment is suitable for most people except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals.
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable, no anaesthesia is required though and most people describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable, not unlike a quick pin prick.
Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. A cooling pack is applied after treatment to calm the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they flake off, leading to a more even skin tone. Tightening of the skin should increase over the following months as new collagen is produced within the dermis.
