Ipl - Photo Rejuvenation
The best foundation you can wear
is glowing healthy skin.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses IPL technology to help improve and reduce some of the most common skin complaints such as;
Age Spots / Sun Spots
Fine lines and wrinkles
Excessive Flushing / Redness
Rejuvenation & Wrinkles
Intense pulsed light is unique in its ability to actually change the structure of skin cells, making them behave more like young cells. When IPL reaches the skin’s surface, the new collagen clearly decreases fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and reduces pore size, giving the skin a visibly smoother and firmer texture.A 10-year study conducted by Stanford University in California demonstrated that having two to three photo facials per year for a decade can positively alter the genes of dermal cells. The genetic expression of aged skin cells treated regularly with intense pulsed light resembles that of young, healthy skin cells. As such, researchers think intense pulsed light can prevent (and not just treat) many of the superficial signs of ageing.
To make the most of the IPL photo facials age-fighting properties, it’s essential that you avoid sun exposure, especially in the weeks before and following IPL treatment. (All skin resurfacing procedures make the skin temporarily more sensitive to UV radiation, so applying a SPF 50 sunscreen is a must.)
Ipl gives the skin a more youthful fresh appearance in a natural way; toning down the signs of ageing. This new alternative to the more expensive and severe approaches of botox and surgical facelifts is rapidly growing in popularity.
Rosacea & Vascular Lesions
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition which expresses itself in redness on the face and sometimes on the neck and chest. The exact cause of Rosacea is yet unknown and many who are affected by it are unaware of their condition.
Rosacea can be effectively treated using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples and uneven skin tones caused by the condition. IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for those suffering from Rosacea by providing a gradual and natural improvement to the skin’s appearance.
The Lumenis Solution
IPL is considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for treatment of vascular lesions and its efficacy has been proven in over 80 peer-reviewed papers (IPL bibliography of studies and peer-reviewed articles). The IPL procedure removes facial superficial vessels and as a result, dramatically decreases or completely eliminates facial redness. The vascular components of Rosacea can vary from flushing to telangiectasia and can have different densities and depths. With a choice of multiple vascular cut-off filters and unique pulse sequencing, IPL can coagulate each sub-type of capillaries, reducing the redness and simultaneously triggering neocollagenesis which limits the reccurrence of the condition.
The IPL is one of the most commonly administered form of light therapy in dermatological applications. IPL systems are designed to deliver many rapid, high-intensity and controlled pulses of light. The controlled pulsing prevents thermal damage to your skin and minimizes discomfort.
IPL technology allows to treat your acne with specific wavelengths of light which target the bacteria in the skin, as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts. The light emitted from iPulse™ helps to destroy the bacteria which causes acne by exciting the existing oxygen molecules and increasing the molecules’ power. These superpowered molecules break down the bacteria that cause acne and create an atmosphere where it cannot breathe. By boosting the skin’s internal cleansing system in this way, IPL E-light dramatically reduces acne and the occurrence and appearance of scarring, resulting in much clearer skin.
IPL energy at various wavelengths is also used to selectively destroy pigment clusters, blood-filled capillary veins, or hair, depending on the intended nature of the treatment.
Pigmentation & Sun Demage
Photorejuvenation refers to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat conditions related to sun-induced skin damage. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light which is primarily absorbed by melanin and oxyhemoglobin and is effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, pigmentation, capillaries, elastosis and fine lines.
These pigmentation irregularities can manifest in various forms, including age spots, freckles, melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and others. They can make the skin appear blotchy, dull, and discoloured, leading to a loss of confidence and self-esteem.
Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and overexposure to the sun or sunbeds. From the age of about 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear. Generally, these age spots pose no health risk, however, they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance. Freckling and age spots are successfully lightened or removed with Intense Pulse Light.
IPL or Intense Pulse Light skin rejuvenation and pigment removal treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Age spots and freckles can be lightened or removed in as little as one to five treatment sessions.
