IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is one of the most effective ways to heat and stimulate the collagen and fibroblasts deep in the skin thus tightening the skin and improving skin texture giving an overall younger healthier looking complexion. It is also used to help improve light facial redness, sun damaged skin and active acne.

IPL and it's benefits-
1. Anti-ageing effects.
It leaves the skin looking tighter, firmer and smoother by stimulating the fibroblasts that create collagen. As we grow older these fibroblasts diminish and the collagen becomes 'mushy' in texture resulting in wrinkles. Therefore the Skin Rejuvenation treatment, after stimulating the collagen, gives an amazing overall treatment that tightens the skin and decreases very fine lines. It smoothes the skins texture. Both the face and body can be treated.
2. Reduces enlarged pores.
Due to it's tightening effect on the skin IPL is an excellent treatment to help close enlarged pores. We do not recommend the old fashioned extraction methods as they can cause broken capillaries so a combination of Dermal Peels is ideal to break down blackheads and the IPL to close the pores.
3. Reduces facial redness.
IPL (Intense pulsed light) is naturally drawn to blood so is used to lessen light facial redness for Rosacea skin types and those with thread veins.
4. Improves Sun Damage
IPL is also naturally attracted to melanin and so can be used to help reduce sun damage. However other types of pigmentation such as Melasma cannot be treated in this way and better results will be seen by having specialiszd Dermal Peels such as the Target Peel or the Cosmelan Peel.
5. Heals active Acne.
IPL has natural anti-bacterial effects and will cauterize the underlying infection from spots so calming acne and breakouts. For post acne hyperpigmentation Dermal Peels are advised and the HYDRAPEN is ideal to heal post acne pock marks.
IPL is NOT suitable for dark or black skin types 5 or 6 due to the lasers strong attraction to melanin.
IPL treatments should be spaced at 1-2 weekly intervals initially for the first course of 6, then treatments can be extended to every 4-8 weeks for general maintenance. There is no downtime post treatment but it is recommended that an SPF 50 be worn. Treatments are sold in courses of 3 and 6 at a discounted price.
