WHAT IS SKIN REJUVENATION?

Skin Rejuvenation is an umbrella word used to describe the result you get from skin treatments which restore the youthful appearance of your skin. These treatments generally involve controlled methods of trauma to the epidermis or dermis layer of the skin to stimulate cell renewal and fibroblasts into triggering the increased production of collagen and elastin. Treatments such as lasers, lights, radio frequency, and chemical peels etc are all methods of controlled trauma which rejuvenate the skin with next to no or minimal downtime.

 

WHAT IS IPL?

 IPL is Intense Pulsed Light. It emits wavelengths of light. Depending on which wavelength is used the light can target different (chromophores) in the skin such as Vascular lesions (blood), Pigmented lesions (flat brown age spots/freckles) and hair etc. It is a quick, easy, and non-intrusive method of skin rejuvenation offering a variety of solutions for the skin which can reduce the need for long term oral/topical medication.

IPL offers a variety of skin rejuvenation solutions for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as brown spots (pigmentation), redness (thread veins) and uneven skin texture, lines and wrinkles.

 

WHAT SKIN CONCERNS AND CONDITIONS CAN IPL IMPROVE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Acne can be treated with IPL alone or in combination with other clinical treatments available at Skin Happy. IPL treatments greatly reduce the number and severity of active lesions, lessening the inflammation and frequency of breakouts. IPL  targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the number and severity of active lesions, lessening the inflammation and frequency of breakouts. The light also stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.
  • Vascular red vein removal can provide a long-term solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins, red spots (blood spots), spider naevi, port wine stains in just a few quick and easy treatments. IPL  targets and is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion. Red vein removal can provide a long-term solution to facial problem’s such as general red flushing and Rosacea, thread veins, cherry angiomas/red spots (blood spots), spider naevi and port wine stains. This treatment can also be performed on the body.
  • Pigmentation. Flat pigmented lesions such as sun damage, age spots and freckles can be successfully removed creating a more flawless, youthful and glowing appearance. IPL targets and is absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells. 
  • Rejuvenation. For all the signs of visible ageing. The light is absorbed into the skin. It triggers the stimulation of the ­ fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the skin tone and texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

EXTRAS:
