Skin Rejuvenation - IPL
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.
