As our skin ages, it undergoes a transformation that leaves it looking very different from when we were young. Age spots, sun damage, wrinkles and fine lines, thread veins, enlarged pores or rosacea can all make an unwelcome appearance as we get older.
While ageing is, of course, a natural process, our behaviour and treatment of our skin can accelerate this process, making us look older than our years. Harsh environmental conditions, pollution, sun damage, smoking and alcohol can all have devastating effects on the skin.
IPL is a highly effective treatment in terms of photo rejuvenation. The intense pulses of light are applied to the skin, where they are absorbed by any lesions on the surface of the skin. The light energy is transformed to heat energy, breaking down the lesions and causing them to fade away.
IPL is particularly effective as a treatment for hyper pigmentation, or age spots, as the heat causes the pigmentation to break down into particles small enough for the body to absorb and remove. The same process can remove thread veins and the redness associated with rosacea.
Intense Pulsed Light is non-invasive and safe for the skin, offering impressive results with minimal discomfort or healing time.
