|IPL SKIN REJUVENATION HELPS;
|- Photo damaged skin(sundamage)
|- Thread veins
|- Hyperpigmentation(skin types I-III)
|- Acne/acne scarring
IPL is an extremely effective treatment for photo rejuvenation, especially for rosacea skin conditions, thread veins, photo-ageing(sundamaged) skin and hyperpigmentation in European/white skin. The IPL light emits energy which causes a reaction in the deeper dermal layer of the skin resulting in the production of new collagen, which thickens the epidermis and thereby diminishing the redness associated with rosacea and red veins. Sundamaged skin is healed by improving texture, as the old dead skin cells are shed the improved skin texture appears on the surface.
How does IPL work?
The Phaser EPL emits a unique band of SmartliteTM from a hand piece held against your skin. A dual band of yellow and red light is emitted which is particularly effective for skin rejuvenation. The red light targets the pigmented areas of skin, targeting hyperpigmentation whilst the yellow light obstructs the blood flow to red and inflamed skin conditions.
What does the treatment involve?
You wear protective eyewear while the IPL operator moves the hand piece slowly over your skin firing the smartlite exactly where required. Most people experience minimal discomfort feeling no more than a tingling/heating sensation. Cooling is applied after treatment to minimise this sensation. A test patch will initially be required to test your suitability for treatment.
Are there any side effects?
With general photo rejuvenation there are little or no side effects and any skin type can benefit from a treatment.
When treating rosacea the skin may initially become redder before it improves.
When treating hyperpigmentation the pigmented areas are treated at very high levels to ablate the skin, this means the skin will blister afterwards. The blistered area will heal like a regular burn, by firstly turning into a scab then healing within a 2-4 week period. This is the reason why hyperpigmentation treatment is only suitable for white skin.
How many treatments are needed?
Results can be seen from a course of 3-6 treatments depending on the skin condition. Treatments are carried out at varying intervals from weekly to monthly depending on the skin condition.
