Skin rejuvenation, Pigmentation and Wrinkle reduction with IPL laser.
The treatments each takes around 20 mins and you will be able to leave the salon immediately after your session. Before you treatment, the area is cleans and a cooling gel is then applied to the area to be treated and you will be wearing protective eyewear. Using our SHR machine the handle is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that eliminate the pigmentation or imperfection without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. You may experience a slight tingling sensation and have some redness after for an hour or so.
Please note: A patch test must be carry out prior to all treatments
Which skin conditions can be treated?
Skin rejuvenation is the treatment of sun damaged skin. skin rejuvenation is used to boost complexion, even out the skin tone, tighten pores, smooth out the skin texture and give a collagen boost within the skin. skin rejuvenation is an excellent treatment to reverse the sign of ageing.
Pigmentation therapy is the treatment of skin that has an uneven skin tone due to age spots, sun spots and hyper pigmentation. this treatments fades and removes the excess pigmentation restoring the skin to an even clearer tone. this treatment will also refresh the complexion as well as giving a collagen boost within the skin.
Wrinkle therapy is a treatment of the skin to give the maximum collagen boost to push out fine lines and wrinkles.
How does it work?
The heat from the light is attracted to the melanin oxy-haemoglobin in the blood. The heat reaction breaks down the melanin and coagulates the blood within the area, this then leaves the body through the lymphatic system leaving the skin with a clearer complexion. The heat that is also created within the epidermis and dermis makes the skin react as if it has had an injury. The blood and collagen rush into this area to repair it, leaving the skin with a smoother appearance.
Does it hurt?
The sensation will vary from person to person, the sensation is described as a heat sensation and a few clients say it is light mild sunburn after treatment.
What to expect:
Skin rejuvenation and wrinkle treatments will show mild redness of the skin initially after treatment, this is a good sign the treatment has worked and sufficient heat has been pushed into the epidermis.
Pigmentation treatments will initially turn darker after the treatment and then a crusting can appear on the skin, which must shed off naturally up to 10 days after the treatment, the skin will then appear more even in colour and the pigmented lesions will be lighter in colour.
How many session are needed?
On average between 1-6 session at a 3-4 weeks intervals are needed for the best results. Top up treatments may be needed in future to maintain these results.
Other skin conditions we treat:
The light targets the acnes bacteria in the skin. A photodynamic reaction occurs, which performs a selective destruction of the acne. With successive treatments the rate of acne destruction can become greater than the growth of the bacteria leading to a reduction in the inflamed lesions and can prevent further traumatic scarring.
The light is absorbed into the blood vessels, which supply the sebaceous glands. By heating up the capillaries this will reduce the blood flow to the sebaceous glands and decrease the over-production of oil in the skin.
The light is attached to target chromophore oxy-haemoglobin in the blood, as the light is absorbed by the blood in the vessels a heat reaction is caused which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then breaks down and the debris is removed by the body’s natural waster disposal system
Please note: Do not to smoke 4 hours before and after treatment
