IPL Skin Rejuvenation
What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
Intense Pulsed Light Ellipse is a method of treating sun damaged skin. Overexposure to UV light can cause mottled/uneven pigmentation, open pores, sunspots, rosacea, poikiloderma of Civatte and diffuse redness. Treatments using the Ellipse system will not cure any medical conditions causing pigmentation or diffuse redness.
The purpose of this treatment is to achieve improvements in the appearance of the skin colour, tone and pore size using Intense Pulsed Light to target excess pigmentation and diffuse redness.
Laura will cleanse the area to be treated. She will then spread a thin layer of cooling gel to your skin. She will then move the hand held applicator over the entire treatment area, exactly one applicator width after each flash of light. You will be asked to wear dark glasses as will Laura.
How does it work?
IPL is a light based technology and it works by emitting light to the targeted area. This light is converted into heat energy, which promotes damage to the cells that produce melanin or bokeh capillaries. The SWT light helps to spur on the production of collagen, which will help to fill in lines and wrinkles or shallow scarring, while also reducing redness, discolouration, and spots.
Potential side effects
Redness, localised swelling and mild tenderness. Although rare, adverse effects such as light burns, blisters and bruises may occur. On some occasions the treatment may cause temporary pigmentation changes to the skin.
When is treatment not advisable
We will of course review your medical history in full during your consultation to ensure this treatment is suitable for you.
Post treatment advice
Excessive heat should be avoided for 48 hours and exposure to the sun, sun bed and fake tan must be avoided for 30 days after treatment. Also a sunblock of SPF 50 must be used on the exposed skin areas. Otherwise it is possible that blotchy skin pigmentation, hyper – or hypo pigmentation might occur.
Always apply a SPF 50 sunscreen
