Skin rejuvenation is a revolutionary skin treatment that uses an intensed pulsed light therapy to help treat skin conditions. There are several factors that lead to premature damage of our skin. Some of these factors are unhealthy lifestyle, work stress, continuous sun exposure and many more. The result is lacklustre skin, dull complexion and premature appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Skin rejuvenation treatments will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the productionof collagen in the skin.
How does it work?
IPL works by applying rapid light pulses of variable wavelengths to the treatment area. The light is absorbed by the targeted chromophores (such as melanin in pigmentation or freckles). This light is then converted into heat energy which destroys the targeted area through controlled thermal damage, while insuring surrounding tissue remains untouched.
What skin conditions can be treated?
Pigmentation Correction - Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has one or more sun spots, freckles or skin discolouration they’d love to get rid of! A doctor’s letter confirming that no skin cancers are present is usually required before commencing your treatment cycle and a series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced 4 week apart are required for optimal results. Treatments areas such as backs of hands, forearms, décolletage and face will respond well.
Age Management/Rejuvenation - Everybody loves the sunshine! Limited exposure is good for the soul and the immediate effects it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired. However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen, which in turn causes damage to the skin making it feel wrinkled and coarse and looking red and tired. Skin rejuvenation treatments will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the production of collagen in the skin.
Redness Reduction/Brocken Capillaries - Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population! Our trained clinicians can offer treatments which will reduce facial blemishes such as red flushing and red spots found on cheeks and around the nose with minimal downtime or risk. A treatment cycle of 4 – 6 treatments spaced two to three weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome.
Acne Management - Our trained clinicians are now able to offer IPL based acne management programs for their clients. These unique treatments are designed to specifically slow the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general. Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition. Treatment should be spaced approximately 1 – 2 weeks apart.
