Can you imagine a more youthful looking you? Laser Photorejuvenation is a new treatment in assisting the skin to look firmer and smoother giving you that youthful look you desire.

The laser treatment is designed for people who are too busy or do not wish to go through the recovery time of deeper laser resurfacing. IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin's surface.

Photorejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, skin discolouration, age spots, freckles and mottled pigmentation.

Intense pulsed light also diminishes flushing or redness of the face associated with Rosacea, reduces brown spots, and smoothes roughly textured skin.

What is IPL and how is it performed?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as birthmarks, unwanted hair, facial skin imperfections, unsightly small veins, the signs of aging, and other blemishes. This new procedure is called Photorejuvenation.

Any skin can be treated with IPL including skin on the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms, and legs.

An intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation.

The heat causes damage to the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process. The lesion will darken before it flakes off or the body absorbs it.

Treatment can be given as frequently as every three weeks. The sensation of light can be a little uncomfortable and has been likened to a moderate pin prick or burst of heat that lasts for only a few seconds.

Each treatment takes about twenty to thirty minutes and provides excellent long-term results. It is not uncommon for a local anaesthesia cream to be applied half an hour to one hour prior to treatment if the patients desires.

IPL Skin Treatments using Photorejuvenation are recognised for a very high measure of patient satisfaction. With a series of treatments, IPL technology can help restore a more youthful appearance without patient downtime or a prolonged recovery necessary after other types of treatments.
A series of treatment sessions may be recommended.

You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
