IPL Skin Treatments
Stepping up your A game using Intense pules of light. If your looking to improve your skin with a easy and quick treatment then as no more!
This technology is a safe and effective way to achieve youthful and healthy-looking skin. It can benefit those with fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, hyperpigmentation and rosacea.
Although IPL skin rejuvenation has been proven effective with one treatment, it does require between 2–5 treatments to provide the best results.
IPL Skin Treatment
Get the glow
IPL uses light energy to target a certain colour in your skin.
When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the skin concerns you’re being treated for. Unlike lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time but different fillers are used to target more specific skin concerns.
Patch Testing Requirement’s
- Your patch test must have been completed within the previous one year or we will need to repeat it. If you have had a IPL hair removal treatments within the last year then we will not need to repeat a patch test as the IPL Treatment will have been in contact with your skin and will be sufficient at monitoring for a reaction.
