IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a remarkable and gentle treatment for troublesome rosacea, facial vascular redness, large pores, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, as well as preventative and maintenance treatment for general signs of aging.
The IPL treatment does not harm or remove the upper layer of the skin. Instead, it focuses on deeper skin layers to promote new collagen production and small vessels such as capillaries to improve skin tone, smoothness and appearance.
Sun damage and the ageing process usually cause the development of brown spots and darker pigmentations also known as age spots.
IPL treatment is effective for treating many types of pigmentations and is used effectively to reduce the pigmentation on the skin breaking up the clumps of melanin.
The most common areas are: hands, decolletage, neck and face.
In general people with Rosacea flush easily and develop redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go.
Over time, the redness becomes stronger and more persistent, and visible blood vessels may appear.
IPL has proved to substantially reduce and often eliminate the redness and flushing of rosacea that is so problematic.
Fine lines & wrinkles:
Light is delivered into the skin creating a heat that stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin. Skin will become firmer over a period of time with an improvement in skin tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen and elastin fibres provide support and structure to the skin, with age they start to diminish causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin rejuvenation activates the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin leaving the skin firmer and smoother
Acne is a common chronic skin condition caused by inflammation of oil-producing sebaceous glands.
The Intense Pulsed Light is very effective treatment to remove the acne from the skin. The light works effectively to kill acne-causing bacteria and other infections present in the skin.
The “red” left behind in acne scars is a result of tiny broken capillaries at the site of the healed acne lesion. This redness is more common to “newer” acne scars and is hard to conceal, making the evidence of acne more pronounced, even after it has healed. IPL also targets these broken capillaries and causes them to be reabsorbed by the body, effectively reducing the redness
