What is photorejuvenation with IPL?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive skin treatment that can be used to improve the overall colour and texture of your skin by addressing age spots, sun damage and other pigmentation problems as well as skin redness (such as rosacea) and other irregularities which make the complexion appear uneven.
What does IPL photorejuvenation treatment involve?
IPL photorejuevantion is a relatively quick, non-invasive method of rejuvenating the skin using light energy. Treatments typically take around 30 minutes and are fairly comfortable. During the procedure, intense pulses of light energy are fired onto the skin to stimulate collagen production, target pigmentation and skin redness and minimise fine lines and wrinkles associated with premature ageing.
Is IPL photorejuvenation safe & is there any recovery time?
There is no significant downtime although we advise you to avoid the sun and wear SPF 30 for a minimum for 48 hours after treatment.
Some people may experience redness, and capillaries on the face may be more visible immediately after treatment but these side effects usually reside within a few hours.
What kind of results can I expect with IPL photorejuvenation?
You can see a difference after one photorejuvenation treatment, although the results usually develop gradually in the weeks following treatment as the skin rejuvenates.
