What is IPL treatment?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive skin care procedure that uses high-powered pulses of light to improve general skin appearance. Besides improving overall skin outlook, our IPL treatment targets specific skin care conditions such as:

Port wine stains: a type of vascular birthmark caused by abnormal development of blood vessels in the skin. This can appear anywhere on the body, and it looks like a flat, red, or purple mark on the skin that is usually present at birth. The port-wine stain may become thicker and darken over time.

Spider Angioma: also known as spider naevus or spider telangiectasia, is a vascular lesion characterized by a collection of small, dilated blood vessels clustered very close to the surface of the skin.

Cherry Angioma: common skin growths that can develop in most areas of your body. They’re usually found in people aged 30 and older.

Haemangioma: A collection of small blood vessels that form a lump under the skin. They’re sometimes called ‘strawberry marks’ because the surface of a haemangioma can look like the surface of a strawberry.

Facial Telangiectasias: Dilated vessels or broken capillaries that appear superficially in the dermis mostly on the alae nasi (a lateral portion of the nose)

Periocular Vessel: Smaller blood vessels that can be found around the eye area and these can appear as red or blue veins.

Rosacea: Common skin condition that causes redness and visibly broken blood vessels on your face. This can typically appear on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin.

What does IPL do for the skin?

Keeping your skin healthy and glowing can be challenging when exposed to stubborn acne, blemishes, and other skin conditions. Our IPL Skin Rejuvenation combats these complications to provide your desired skin tone, texture, and appearance.

Our IPL procedure helps remove wrinkles, fine lines, and other age spots. This is because our IPL procedure eliminates the effect of sun damage on your skin. The intense pulsed light penetrates and removes stubborn pigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines, while repairing the effects of sun damage on the skin. As a result, your skin becomes more even-toned and youthful.

It also treats other skin conditions, including acne and scarring, by destroying the acne causing bacteria. A course of IPL treatments can treat stubborn acne and photo damage, eliminating blemishes and revealing healthy skin.

If you experience rosacea, facial flushing and broken capillaries, our IPL treatment targets inflamed blood vessels to disperse them through your lymphatic system. It helps to calm the skin and reduce the appearance of redness on the surface of the skin.

Our IPL procedure possesses the unique ability to target a variety of skin imperfections to achieve skin rejuvenation and target specific skin problems. No matter what your skin goals are, our specialists will understand them and target the Intense Pulse Light Therapy process to produce the desired results.

How long does IPL Skin Rejuvenation take?

Every IPL procedure is unique, so the duration varies depending on your treatment area, skin goals, etc. However, most treatments are done in under 60 minutes. Smaller areas take about 20 minutes, while larger spots take around 30 minutes. No worries if you are unsure of how long your duration will take, our IPL Skin Rejuvenation experts will identify the period and inform you before your session.

How does the Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Skin Rejuvenation work?

During the Intense Pulsed Light rejuvenation at our clinic, our specialists will do a thorough consultation beforehand to ensure the treatment is suitable for you and your skin concerns.

Heat is produced when well-controlled pulses of light are directed into the upper layer of the skin and are absorbed by the skin’s pigment and red blood cells. The heat produces a temporary injury, and the device stimulates the skin’s natural healing process.

Your skin sheds its dull and damaged outward layer as it heals and produces rejuvenated skin. The new collagen restores the skin’s youthful look and feel. You will be left with a smoother skin tone, healthier complexion, and less visible sun damage.

How often should you have IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

We recommend a minimum of 4 treatments to be had 4 weeks apart. You may notice evident changes in your skin after a single IPL Skin Rejuvenation session. However, we recommend repeated and continuous treatments for optimal long-lasting results.

Is Intense Pulsed Light therapy dangerous for your skin?

No, it is not dangerous. The Intense Pulsed Light skin rejuvenation is non-invasive.

However, although the Intense Pulsed Light therapy is non-invasive, a safe treatment that is only delivered by qualified professionals to prevent burns, post-inflammatory pigmentation, and scarring.

Our skin rejuvenation experts employ the appropriate safety measures to deliver the safest IPL treatment for you.
