Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL is a great solution for your skin needs.
Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin surface. Using Intense Pulsed Light we can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation and symptoms of rosacea.
Photorejuvenation provides long-term improvement of complexion and skin texture, with only the slightest interruption in your lifestyle. Red blemishes from broken blood vessels and brown spots of pigment from sun damage respond to IPL and can be treated by it. The light is changed to heat energy as it reaches to the level of the collagen beneath the skin surface, it then encourages the skin to start repoducing collagen.
IPL has been designed to provide flexibility of treatment, with the ability to choose the wavelength, pulse duration and energy levels according to the size and depth of the lesions and skin colour. In this way the maximum heat is delivered with minimum damage to the skin tissues.
Dilated capillaries on fine skin texture often affect large areas of the face. The skin responds to stimulation and permanent dilated vessels are apparent, particularly on the upper cheeks and nose. Ruptured blood vessels assume a line-like appearance in surface tissues and can become bulbous and blue in colour due to the congestion in the blood vessels of the area.
Discoloured skin patches can develop in certain parts of the body, due to a difference in melanin levels in different areas of the skin. Melanin is the substance that provides colour to the skin and protects it from the sun. When there is an overproduction of melanin in a certain area, it can result in skin discoloration.
Age spots are small dark areas which appear on the skin. They vary in size and they can appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms. Age spots are most common in individuals over the age of 50, however they can appear sooner. Age spots affect people of all skin types, however they are more common on people with lighter skin.
Freckles are caused by exposure to sunlight. Freckles are most common on individuals who have red hair. Freckles also tend to disappear in the winter and become more prominent in the summer.
Patchy skin colour is where certain areas of the skin appear either lighter or darker. Mottled skin pigmentation is caused by blood vessel changes in the skin resulting in a patchy appearance.
Patients with rosacea develop pinkness in the face skin due to an
increased number of tiny capillaries in the skin. The acute inflammation of the
skin can be managed by appropriate skin creams but the small
vessels will still remain. Treatment with IPL or laser can be used to target these small vessels so that they are no longer visible.
