Advanced IPL Skin Treatments
Skin imperfections including sun damage, facial redness, open pores, dry uneven skin texture and pigmented lesions. Laser and advanced IPL skin treatments are an effective non surgical alternative to help improve these imperfections. We want you to be confident in your skin and focus on your every day life instead of your skin imperfections.
Many of the skin imperfections are caused over time by UVA and UVB sun damage and as we age, the structural components of our skin such as collagen, are depleted and fine broken capillaries appear more noticeable. Advanced IPL treatments are more commonly carried out on the face and neck but chest, hands, and arms can also be treated.
The usual forms of pigmented lesions are: Lentigines or sun spots, age spots, liver spots and freckles or ephelides; these are superficial benign lesions often associated with over exposure to UVA and UVB light and although they pose no risk to your health, they create a less youthful appearance. Moles cannot be treated with laser or advanced IPL.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment you may see improvements to some pigmented areas within a few days. Further improvements may take up to a few weeks. Our clinical skin treatment ranges will enhance and help prolong the effects of laser or IPL treatment. Our Nurse Practitioner will discuss the most effective treatment for you at your free consultation.
When will I see results?
Effects are cumulative and overall improvements may be seen after 2-3 months. These effects will vary depending on the area treated and the individual response.
How often can I have treatments?
Three to six treatments are usually required usually between four to six week intervals. Occasionally, more treatments may be needed for some individuals. Occasional maintenance treatments may be advised for optimal results.
Is the treatment painful?
During treatment you may feel a slight tingling or warmth from the IPL as it pulses. The area will be cooled continually using our latest technology cooling system to ensure your comfort.
