Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light treatments are a highly effective solution for skin in need of rejuvenation.
Photorejuvenation gives long-term improvement to the complexion and skin texture by targetting collagen beneath the skin surface which encourages its natural reproduction with minimal disruption to the skin tissues.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy is used to treat a wide range of facial concerns such as broken capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation and symptoms of rosacea.
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 over certain areas of the skin
due to differences in melanin production.
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 and are most commonly seen in 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.
