INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL)


This trusted treatment is not only used for hair removal, but also for dark spots, discolored skin, spider veins, stretch marks, rosacea and freckles.

 




Intense pulsed light also known as IPL therapy, works on a pigment in hair and skin called melanin. The flashes from the pulsed light get absorbed by the melanin in the hair stimulating the hair to go into its resting phase. Leaving you with smooth, hair-free skin.  In the skin, IPL works by using light energy to target the melanin pigment in your skin, and as the skin is heated, the body gets rid of the unwanted cells. The IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light, different to lasers, so that it can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time. IPL can has the ability to leave the skin with a more even tone and a younger look, and works best for pale or light brown skin. This treatment improves the color and texture of your skin without the need for surgery, and reduces the visible signs of damage caused by sun exposure or photoaging, on the face, neck, hands, or chest. Several treatments will be recommend by our specialist depending on which area is being treated, we may recommend 3-12 treatments with rest time in between the treatments for the skin to heal. Treatment packages are available according to your needs and desires and will be discussed with you.
