"My skin look brighter and more even toned, it's softer and more radiant" Miss Hughes, Toddington
IPL systems release precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin. In addition, specific lesions such as thread veins, age spots and freckles can be targeted resulting in a more uniform complexion. The skin becomes firmer, appears more radiant and enlarged pores are reduced. An Nd:Yag Laser may be selected to target deeper lines and to promote further collagen production.
A mild microdermabrasion is sometimes carried out prior to treatment as exfoliating the skin to remove the top layers of dead skin maximises the results and leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft. A thin layer of gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. A short pulse of light is realeased and the handpiece is moved onto the neighbouring area until the entire area is treated.
A cooling device can be used and goggles will be provided.
This is a treatment suited to those who are aiming to "look good for their age." It gives the skin a fresh and more youthful appearance, whilst addressing common issues such as red veins and uneven skin tone. The skin can feel warm and be a little red post treatment and is not suitable for people with suntans.
Treatments are carried out every 3-4 weeks and a course of 6 treatments are recommended. Tightening of the skin should increase over the following months as new collagen is produced within the dermis.
A full consultation and a patch test will be carried out prior to treatment.
