Age Spots / Freckles / Sun Damage / Solar Lentigines / Spider Veins / Broken Vessels

/ Telangiectasia’s Blush & Facial Redness / Rosacea /Fine Lines and Wrinkles

How does the treatment work?

Pulses of light target and erase broken vessels and pigmented lesions at the surface of your skin without harming surrounding tissue. As a result, you enjoy clearer skin that looks younger and fresher. Many patients affected by broken capillaries, spotty pigmentation or brown spots tend to see results after just one IPL treatment session but a course of sessions is recommended for maximum results.

What can I expect during a treatment?

What can I expect during a treatment?

After a full consultation and patch test to assess your suitability for the treatment, you will be cleansed and given full blackout goggles to wear during treatment. Your specialist will apply some lux lotion to enhance the comfort of your treatment and your session will begin. During your treatment you will experience a flashing light although your eyes will be fully protected with metal blackout goggles, virtually pain-free you will also experience a sensation similar to the snap of an elastic band with most patients describing the after-sensation of the treatment as a mild sunburn sensation. Treatment times are generally 30mins.

Does the treatment have any side effects?

Does the treatment have any side effects?

Depending on the concern you are treating the side effects of the treatment can vary. For pigment or pigmented lesions, typical after-effects of the treatment consist of, slight redness, immediate darkening of the pigment (this is what we want to see) followed by crusting or flaking of the pigment over the next 5-7 days. This is your body naturally removing the pigment and your pigment will be visibly lighter and or removed completely.

For vascular imperfections, blushing and rosacea treatments, you can expect redness, some mild swelling or puffiness and darkening of the blood vessels, over the next 2-4 weeks your body will naturally re-absorb these treated vessels and they will disappear.

When will I notice results from the treatment?

When will I notice results from the treatment?

Most patients enjoy healthier skin 2 weeks after their IPL treatment. At this point, the body naturally gets rid of damaged cells and clears broken capillaries away, revealing a healthier and smoother complexion. Facial rejuvenation with IPL is a non-surgical procedure that offers unparalleled results and faster healing times than traditional methods.
