Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that provides an effective way to correct and treat skin damage without disrupting the skins healthy surface skin cells. Ideal skin conditions for this treatment include hyper-pigmentation, photo-aged skin, sun damaged skin, scarring, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend that clients be prepared for mild redness in the skin immediately following treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does IPL Skin Rejuvenation work?
IPL treatments are performed using a handheld device that delivers a broad spectrum pulse of light onto the skin’s surface. The wavelengths of light penetrate deep into the skin tissue to stimulate the cells beneath the skin’s surface and trigger a response in the body to eliminate injured tissue and dead skin cells.
What is IPL skin Rejuvenation used for?
IPL skin Rejuvenation can be used to target aging skin, signs of photo aging such as sun induced freckles, sun spots and hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, acne scarring, dull complexions and rosacea.
What are the side effects involved in an IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
There may be some slight swelling and redness in the area being treated, particularly in areas where the skin is a little thinner, such as the eye area. Any redness or swelling should subside within a few hours, however. Your skin will be much more sensitive to UV exposure during your treatments, so daily use of an SPF 30 is recommended.
Is IPL Skin Rejuvenation painful?
When you arrive for your Skin Rejuvenation appointment at MEDISKIN, a cooling gel will be applied to the area being treated. This will minimise discomfort during the procedure. There is a slight sensation similar to a rubber band snapping off your skin. It is not an intense feeling and you should not be in any pain during treatment, however, if you find the treatment too uncomfortable your MEDISKIN therapist can lower your personal settings.
What can I expect from my Skin Rejuvenation appointment at MEDISKIN?
You will not be treated for IPL Skin Rejuvenation without first undertaking a thorough consultation with our highly trained therapists. This will include a patch test which will confirm your suitability for the treatment. Your appointment will begin with the application of a cooling gel to the area being treated, which will minimize discomfort during the thread vein removal procedure. You will also be supplied with eye protection to wear during the treatment. Your treatment will end with the application of serum and an SPF.
