With IPL it is possible to treat any area of the body to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, reducing the visible signs of aging. Skin rejuvenation is achieved with IPL by boosting the collagen levels in the skin.
What conditions can IPL Skin Rejuvenation be used for?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that provides an effective way to correct and treat skin damage without disrupting the skins healthy surface skin cells. IPL skin Rejuvenation can be used to target aging skin, signs of photo aging, for example, sun induced freckles, sun and brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, acne scarring, dull complexions and rosacea.
What are the side effects involved in an IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
There may be some slight swelling and redness in the area being treated, particularly in areas where the skin is a little thinner, such as the eye area. Any redness or swelling should subside within a few hours, however. Your skin will be much more sensitive to exposure to the sun during your treatments, so daily use of an SPF 30 is recommended.
Is IPL Skin Rejuvenation painful?
A cooling gel and cooling treatment head will be applied to the area being treated. This will help to minimise any discomfort during the procedure. There is a slight sensation similar to a rubber band snapping off your skin. It is not an intense feeling and you should not be in any pain during treatment, however, if you find the treatment too uncomfortable ask your therapist to lower your personal settings.
How long will the results last with IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
It depends on how much sun exposure your skin gets after the treatments. If you are in the sun for long periods and do not use sunscreen the underlying conditions will return. If you use protection and take good care of your skin, your skin will continue to look good for up to a year.
