Reduce pigmentation for bright, healthy and glowing skin.
IPL or Intense pulsed light treatment targets pigmentation, sun spots and age spots on the face, décolletage, back of the hands and anywhere else on the body for a clearer complexion.
The treatment is perfect for you if you’re looking to:
- Reduce pigmentation and age spots
- Reduce the “dull” look in your skin
- Plump and rejuvenate your skin
- Improve skin texture and tone
For best results, we do recommend a regular course of IPL treatments along with combining the correct skincare at home to help maintain the health of your skin.
How does it work?
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is pulsed through the skin’s surface, targeting areas of pigment in the underlying tissue and minor surface blood vessels. The pigment breaks down into smaller particles, then rises to the surface where it appears darker then flakes off revealing healthy skin below. The flaking of the pigment usually takes about 1 week.
Does it hurt?
You’ll feel a slight sensation during the treatment, but the pulses are brief and can be adjusted for your level of comfort. We can also use a cooling technique which helps to soothe the skin before and after treatment.
How long do the results last?
Results are long-lasting, but you will need to make sure you protecting your skin from further sun and environmental damage to prevent new spots and blemishes appearing.
It is important to note that while the IPL treatment does have a significant impact and reduction on pigmentation, it doesn’t stop the body’s natural ageing process. New spots or age-related blemishes may still appear over time but these can be limited if you are wearing a high quality SPF EVERY DAY of the year.
