IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is non-invasive and suitable for both face and body. It is a treatment that is often asked about and typically feared- unnecessarily.
What is it? IPL works by releasing short pulses of light that is absorbed by the skin. It is ideal for acne, scarring, ageing, redness throughout, specific broken capillaries….
Depending on the aim of the treatment, IPL destroys a problem cell/vessel/hair or stimulates a desired cell to produce healing collagen.
IPL for Red Veins
Intense Pulsed Light is the treatment of choice for surface red veins. IPL releases precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following a course of treatments, the red veins will clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original red vein. Ideally vitamin c taken internally will strengthen the capillary wall to prevent it collapsing again – as readily
IPL for Acne
IPL Acne Therapy is an effective light-based treatment that is revolutionising the treatment of acne. It works by addressing the specific Bacteria strain that triggers acne
Ipl for pigment
Sunlight, environmental factors and the natural passage of time all contribute to the development of dark spots, skin pigmentation and freckles. Your face, hands and chest are the first parts of the body to show the signs of ageing because they receive so much sun exposure.
IPL releases precisely controlled pulses of filtered light that is absorbed/attracted to the problem area of the skin, heats it up, collapses it so that it can be naturally flushed out of the body.
Using IPL for skin rejuvenation is a process that is known as photo-rejuvenation. By using flashes of light that targets deepest dermal tissues without disruption to the outer epidermal layers of the skin this stimulates the production of collagen leaving skin smoother, tight and rejuvenated.
The equipment itself is constantly evolving and adapting to remain innovative within the sector
It is an amazing treatment which can stand alone or indeed be part of a multi modality approach toward skin results
For example if someone had acne the ipl can inhibit the bacteria while receiving peels to control the exfoliation and decrease the possibility of scarring – alongside their home regime
The skincare industry requires much training, discipline and a yearn to learn
