IPL Photo Rejuvenation or a Photo-Facial results in reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and general improvement of the skin texture through the stimulation of collagen.
Skin clarity is improved by reduction in discolouration and pigmentation, red blotches and thin broken veins resulting in brighter, more even complexion.
Different wavelengths of light destroy the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne, while at the same time directly targeting the over-active sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This targeted heating deep in the skin causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum.
While we primarily use higher powered lasers such as the Lightsheer Diode for Hair Reduction, there are some combinations of hair and skin colour that respond more favourably to IPL Hair Reduction treatments. IPL is also used to reduce hair after the main course of Laser Hair Reduction has been performed, and the remaining hair is too fine and light to be effectively reduced by laser, at which point we switch to IPL which can be more effective on this type of hair.
As supplied by the manufacturer, these official before and after photos show the types of issues and results that can be achieved by IPL treatments.
