What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses selective bands of light to target specific issues in the skins underlying layers. When targeting brown spots and pigment issues, the laser breaks down the pigment into smaller particles, which rise to the skins surface and flake away naturally.

 

When targeting redness (broken blood vessels, etc.) and rosacea, the light and heat energy works to coagulate the targeted vessels, triggering the body’s natural healing response and clearing these areas away, resulting in even skin tone and texture.

 

The heat from the IPL light flashes also forces the epidermis to create more collagen, which over the weeks between treatments pushes the new collagen to the skins surface, resulting in it becoming more firm and fuller. This also works to heal surface scars from issue such as acne, chickenpox, etc.

Is there any down time?

There is no downtime after the treatment is completed, and daily activities can be returned to. There are some minor considerations to avoid, such as direct sun exposure, which are discussed in the consultation to ensure they will not conflict with the clients future plans/lifestyle.

How frequently do I need treatments?

It would depend on the skin concern you are looking to treat and your overall goal. It is typically 20-30 days between treatments for a series of treatments to see the most effective results.

What happens during the Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
How does it feel?

Once relaxed on our treatment bed, clients are given dark glasses to protect their eyes. The skin is then cleansed if needed, and a cool gel is applied to the area to be treated. The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. The treatment is not painful, you may feel a slight sting, light a snapping of a small rubber band, however this is the maximum discomfort that should be felt. More pain does not equal better results, so we always ensure our clients only feel what is necessary for overall results, minimizing any discomfort.

Following treatment, you may experience temporary redness and feel a slight sunburn-like sensation or minor swelling, which generally subsides within 1-24 hours. Depending on your skin type, several sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. Typically, 90 days after initial treatment is when best results can be seen, so once a treatment package has begun, the results layer over each other providing continuous satisfaction.

How much does the treatment cost?

This would depend on the treatment and treatment area. For full pricing, please visit our pricing page here. Please note that some treatment pricing may vary slightly once a full assessment is complete, as some clients treatment needs vary.
