IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) – is a non-invasive, tailor made treatment that can improve a variety of skin conditions including sun damage, Lentigo (brown spots), Rosacea, erythema (redness), broken capillaries (veins), pigmentation, acne and dull, lacklustre skin.
IPL works on the theory of photothermolysis. This occurs when light is absorbed into excess melanin (dark pigment) in your skin and haemoglobin (red colour of your blood vessels). Cold gel is applied to the skin and your eyes are protected. The smooth glass surface of the hand piece is gently placed on your skin and pulses of light are applied. In the skin, the light converts to heat, which damages the abnormal dark or red skin cells whilst leaving the surrounding skin less affected. The pigment cells will naturally move toward the surface of the skin and slough off leaving a lighter, less visible lesion. The red lesions (veins, Rosacea) will gradually fade over time.
Downtime is minimal and a course of between four to six treatment sessions at four to six weekly intervals is recommended for long term results.

IPL Acne Treatments
Intensed Pulsed Light Treatments for Acne
What can be an inconvience for some can have a detrimental effect on anothers self esteem. Acne is a very common, chronic skin condition caused by inflammation of oil producing subeaceous glands. Unfortunately it can be very difficult to treat and can last for several years. Some Antibiotics or other forms of treatment can take months to work if at all or can cause unwanted side effects. IPL Acne therapy is a safe, effective light-based therapy now reveloutionising the treatment of acne.

How does IPL work on Acne?:
The innovative and advanced IPL system filters light from a flash lamp in two targeted ways to ensure that only light with the appropriate wavelength is allowed to reach the skin to prevent future acne. Yellow light destroys the bacteria that causes acne and red light targets the production of sebum in the sebaceous glands, reducing inflammation and swelling. Areas of acne respond well to IPL.

How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments will vary from person to person. A course of treatments is recommended to ensure that the treatment is going to be most effective. We will be happy to discuss this with you at a consultation prior to treatment.

Is the treatment painful?
Anaesthesia is not needed as treatment is mildly uncomfortable. Many people describe the sensation as a flick of an elastic band.

Who is suitable for treatment?
Almost everyone can be treated except for dark skinned or tanned individuals. (It is crucial that sunbeds and sunbathing are avoided during treatment) If you are pregnant or taking Roccutane it is best not to go undergo Intense Pulsed Light treatment.
