How does it work and what can be treated?
The Intense Pulsed Light photofacial is an all-encompassing treatment designed to completely refresh your skin.
Visible signs of ageing, sun damage, pigmentation, thread veins, brown spots, uneven skin texture and rosacea can all be treated with sessions of IPL.
The laser/IPL device emits a range of lightwaves which can be tuned and targeted at both haemoglobin (the red blood cells in the blood vessels) and melanin (the brown pigmentation in the skin responsible for age spots, freckles etc).
The light energy bypasses the top layer of skin (epidermis) and gently heats the cells in the layer below (dermis). When damaged, the cells in the dermis (fibroblasts) start to produce more collagen; this repairs the imperfections caused by melanin or haemoglobin.
The laser light passes through normal skin tissue and is only absorbed by cells with colour (chromophores)
The actual treatment lasts between 30-45 minutes.
How long do the results last?
This depends on how much sun exposure your skin gets after your laser treatments. If you are in the sun a lot and do not use a high factor sunscreen, imperfections may return. Results can be maintained and prolonged by wearing sunscreen daily.
Depending on your skin type and how well your body responds to the light, it may take more than one treatment to dissipate or reduce darker or more stubborn treatment areas.
We recommend several IPL sessions depending on your skin type and the results you require.
How long is the consultation?
The consultation is 30 minutes long and costs £35. The £35 will be taken off your total treatment price. A consultation is necessary for a patch test to ensure treatment can be safely carried out.
