Photo Rejuvenation

IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments offer a solution for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as brown spots (pigmentation), redness (thread veins) and uneven skin texture, lines and wrinkles.  The treatment can be done on the full face or just on areas of concerns like the nose and cheeks or foreheads. We also offer individual blemishes removal like sun spots, thread veins, spider nevi and angiomas.

IPL Photorejuvenation Options

Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Your treatment will consist of the application of a mild chemical peel to exfoliate the dead skin cells allowing the light to penetrate skin more evenly and efficiently. This is followed by the IPL application on a series of energy shots until the whole area of the face is covered. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

Treatments are carried out every 2 to 3 weeks and 6 treatments are recommended for best results. Thereafter, top-up sessions are performed as required, but typically once or twice a year.

Various forms of vascular lesions such as telangiectasia (thread or spider veins), rosacea, spider nevi, angiomas (Campbell de Morgan spots) are amongst the most common cosmetic concerns light based treatment of vascular lesions requires the delivery of sufficient energy to the vessel on order to thermo-coagulate the vessel with minimal damage to the surrounding skin. Following treatment, the damaged vessels are absorbed by the body and little or no trace of the lesion remains.

Pigmented lesions can be either congenital like freckles and birthmarks, or acquired due to sun exposure, hormonal changes or as a result of trauma, inflammatory disease, injury and infections like acne. These are usually harmless lesions and can be removed for aesthetic reasons alone. It is important that you see your doctor before having any spots removed to assure they are not due to other underlying more serious issues.

The light energy of IPL is applied to the skin at a certain wavelength that targets the melanin in the lesions, heating and destroying them. The melanin cells are resurfaced or absorbed by the skin’s dead cells agents.

For most pigmented lesions 1-4 treatments are recommended.

The full face IP rejuvenation is ideal to improve the overall appearance of the skin. It targets pigmentation and fine lines for a brighter and tighter skin that looks more youthful and more even. The treatment is applied to the whole face including the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin down tot he jaw line. It includes a mild exfoliation with a chemical peel and the IPL application.
