IPL Treatments

What is IPL or Intense Pulsed Light?

IPL is a non-invasive medical technology that uses light therapy for permanent hair reduction, eliminating age spots, sun spots, freckles and other unsightly discolourations of the skin, superficial capillaries and other benign vascular lesions. It is also particularly effective for a high percentage of people with rosacea.

How does IPL work?

The treatment is applied by placing a hand held treatment unit on the skin. This generates an intense pulse of light into the skin which is absorbed by elements with colour in the skin. The IPL also eliminates hair, employing a method known as selective photothermolysis. This involves disabling hair growth mechanisms by raising the temperature of the hair follicle high enough to damage the follicle germinative cells WITHOUT damaging the skin and surrounding tissues.

What can be treated with IPL?

  • Permanent hair reduction
  • Reduction of pigmented lesions
  • Reduction of vascular lesions
  • Skin Rejuvenation
  • Acne Treatments

Who is suitable for IPL?

Most people can be treated with IPL. Your therapist will determine whether you are suitable after a thorough consultation.

Do IPL treatments hurt?

You may feel a slight pinch such as a snap of an elastic band, but no local anaesthesia or pain medication is required.

Are there any side effects from IPL treatments?

You may experience some short term effects. This may include slight reddening of the skin or local swelling which will go away with a few hours.

Is there any down time or restrictions on activity after IPL?

You can return to work the same day and resume all regular activities. Treated areas must be kept protected from the sun for six weeks AFTER treatment concludes.

How many treatments are required?

This will depend on the individual. Your therapist will advise you after a thorough consultation but a general rule of thumb could be any where between 4-8 treatment.
