This improves the irradiancy and tightness of the skin, controlling enlarged pores, and giving a more uniform complexion.

How is the IPL treatment carried out?

This skin is thoroughly cleansed, and then a mild relaxing peel is applied. The peel removes the top layers of dead skin, leaving the skin feeling smoother and refreshed.

You will be asked to put on goggles to protect your eyes. A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. The light applicator is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released.

The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

The chilled gel is removed and the area moisturised.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Yes, the ideal patient is fair skinned butThe European's' IPL machine has pre-programmed settings to maximise results for different skin types. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment is delayed until the area has completely healed.

How does the treatment feel?

No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable and liken it to a quick pin prick.

What are the side effects?

The skin of some patients becomes quite red after treatment. However, most patients experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. A cooling pack will be applied to the skin to ease these symptoms. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they fall off, leading to an evening of skin tone. Tightening of the skin should increase over a 24-hour period, building up with each treatment and lasting between treatments. Some patients notice a slight swelling over the cheekbones, which may last for up to 72 hours. You must avoid direct sunlight for the first two days and wear sunscreen.

How many treatments are necessary?

Treatments are carried out every 2-3 weeks and 6 treatments are recommended for maximum results. Thereafter top-up sessions are performed as required.

How long does each treatment take?

A facial treatment, including a skin peel usually takes about 30-45 minutes.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to any treatment we will provide a full consultation. The consultation identifies your expectations and provides a complete explanation of the treatment.

A medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment and if you wish to proceed a written informed consent is obtained and a test patch is performed to confirm there are no adverse skin reactions to the light.

What Results Should I Expect From IPL Photo

Rejuvenation? Post treatment the client experiences a mild sunburn-like sensation. This should disappear after 30 minutes to 3 hours. Instant cosmetic changes, the skin will appear radiant, refreshed and will show improved tone and texture making the skin appear more youthful and healthy looking.

From a more clinical perspective, over a period of a couple of months wrinkles are smoothed as new collagen growth in the shrunken dermal layer develops. This has been shown to hold up over several years if stringent sun protection practices are followed.
