Skin renewal - Photofacial

IPL skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive skin procedure with intense pulse light IPL. IPL is not a laser, it uses a broad wavelength light that is pulsed onto the skin and can treat multiple conditions simultaneously; including broken veins and capillaries, redness of the skin, age spots, mottled pigmentation, benign brown pigment and freckles.

Treatment can be anywhere ob the body with face, neck and décolletage being the most popular areas, with treatment to hands and shoulders on the increase.

The heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface which remodels the collagen, firms the skin and shrinks the pores. After a series of photorejuvenation treatments at intervals of 4 weeks apart a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles can also be seen. The skin appears more luminous, brighter and smoother. Improvements can be seen 10 days following the first treatment and enhanced results can be seen with each subsequent treatment.

What is treated with IPL device

  1. Rosacea, redness of the face and chest can be treated successfully with IPL. Several treatments, combined with an appropriate skin care program, are necessary for optimum results.
  2. Sun damage on hands and arms, treating brown spots on the hand even after one treatment.
  3. IPL for overall uneven skin. Hyperpigmented lesions, also known as brown spots, are successfully treated with the light which gives the skin an overall evenness. It is harder to remove a pigment that is very deep and has been present for a long time; however significant and satisfactory reduction can usually be achieved in most patients.
  4. Fine lines, wrinkles and the reduction of enlarged pores.
  5. Removal of red facial veins and capillaries. Red facial veins often require several treatments and can bruise slightly at the time of treatment. The bruised appearance only lasts for a couple of days.

After treatment

Most clients experience a darkening of pigment for a period of 5-7 days. This can easily be covered with makeup and soon clears.

In some rare cases bruising and swelling can occur. This is only temporary, not harmful to the skin and usually only lasts for a few days. Although rarely, blistering can occur and should be treated as you would a normal blister, keeping the area covered and free from infection.
