Photorejuvenation - Skin pigment abnormality treatment

Thanks to the science and art of cosmetic medicine, it is now easy to achieve smoother and more radiant skin without a series of invasive surgical procedures. Laser Photorejuvenation is a revered industrial treatment which can quickly and effectively reverse skin pigment abnormalities and textural discrepancies - to produce visibly firmer and smoother skin through one of the most potent in age-reversal treatments.

Utilising the power of light and laser as a localised skin treatment, Photorejuvenation is a series of skin therapies which have been produced for patients who have personal commitments or who simply do not wish to undergo recovery time associated with the more severe forms of deep laser resurfacing. As a response to this, the Aesthetic Beauty Centre is able to offer IPL Photorejuvenation - a non-invasive dermal treatment which reverses skin damage and pigment abnormalities without the invasive disruption or visible damage of the skin's surface.

¨ The phenomenon of (IPL) or Intense Pulsed Light can concurrently provide a range of skin treatments all across the face and body; from skin condition issues such as broken capillaries and skin discolouration to age spots, freckles and mottled pigmentation. IPL is also highly effective in de-constructing facial redness and ´flushing´ that is commonly attributed to conditions such as Rosacea.¨ - Dr Ashish Dutta (Chief Cosmetic Surgeon)

How Is (IPL) Intense Pulsed Light Performed?

IPL technology is a revolutionary skin treatment that can remediate a complete range of (benign) skin conditions such as undesired hair growths, birthmarks, facial skin imperfections, thread veins and other general signs of ageing and pigment abnormalities. Photorejuvenation can be used on any skin type or colour and even successfully utilised on the more sensitive areas such as the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms and leg regions.

Intense, concentrated light is applied in a series of gentle ´pulses´ over the localised treatment area. This IPL light then penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation, without causing damage to the surrounding areas of healthy skin. Heat from this Photorejuvenation process causes damage to the targeted vessels or lesions which enables the body to activate its natural healing process. Over a short period of time, the treated lesions will darken before flaking off or naturally and safely being absorbed by the body.

Intense Pulsed Light treatment can be applied as frequently as every three weeks. For the first few treatments, the sensation of light may be a little uncomfortable for some patients and the sensation has been likened to a ´moderate pin prick´ or ´surge of heat´ that lasts for only a few seconds. Each IPL treatment takes around twenty to thirty minutes and provides excellent long term results in the appearance and condition of skin. Due to some occasional sensitivity, is not uncommon for a cooling gel to be applied following the treatment if the patient desires to be completely sensation free.

IPL Skin treatments using Photorejuvenation are recognised as achieving a high incidence of patient satisfaction. With a series of treatments with Dr Ashish Dutta and his team, this IPL technology can help each and every patient to restore a more youthful appearance without periods of downtime or prolonged recovery rates associated with more extreme or invasive treatments. Due to the softer nature of the IPL technique, a series of treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve an optimum result; meaning that patients can return to work after the sessions, fully abled to resume all their daily activities.

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre operates with a fully qualified team of medical professionals; managed by Dr Ashish Dutta (Chief Surgeon) and Wendy Dutta (Chief Aesthetic Nurse) who will discuss the procedure during the initial consultation alongside the advantages, benefits and any side effects or aftercare that you may experience during your treatment.
