Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment
IPL treatment (acne, pigmentation, thread veins)
Love your skin with IPL treatment
Beautifully clear and blemish-free skin can sometimes feel like an impossible goal. But whatever your skin concerns and issues, there’s often a way forward that you haven’t considered. At Aesthetics Lab, we’re committed to exploring every advanced technology and innovation to bring you solutions such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment.
This treatment really stands apart for treating pigmentation, acne, rosacea and thread veins in a non-invasive way. It uses IPL (a broad wavelength light) that is pulsed onto the skin. The energy in the light is absorbed by the cells targeted and converted to heat energy. This process breaks down the cells and stimulates the body’s natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin.
Ultimately, the technology helps the body to heal itself. With the right expertise, concerns including loss of firmness, rosacea, thread veins, hyperpigmentation and acne may all be improved. We use a medical-grade IPL machine, which is part of a family of award-winning and cutting-edge technology from BTL Aesthetics. Its advanced technology enables our Aestheticians to swap between high-precision filters to determine light spectrum and treat several issues in just one session. It also uses a cooling system (known as the Sapphire Spot) to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment as it cools the skin’s surface to avoid any overheating.
It’s a win-win treatment – especially when you consider that treatment times start from just 20 minutes. You can fit it in during lunch or on your way home from work, and there’s no downtime and little if any discomfort. Individual results may vary.
Your treatment step by step
IPL treatment consultation
During your consultation with one of our highly-experienced Aestheticians, we will find out more about your concerns and goals and talk through the treatment in detail. We will go through your medical history and analyse the concerns you’re looking to treat in order to prepare a suitable treatment plan.
The number of treatments in your plan will depend on the condition to be treated. Generally, treatments range between 3 to 6 sessions. They are usually scheduled 1 to 4 weeks apart. We’ll carry out a patch test to make sure you’re suitable for the treatment.
Your consultation is a good opportunity to ask any questions you might have – we’ll always answer openly and honestly.
Your treatment will be carried out by one of our experienced Aestheticians in a tranquil treatment room. Broad-spectrum light will be pulsed onto your skin, covering the whole treatment area.
Our medical-grade IPL system uses an advanced cooling system called the Sapphire Spot. The system keeps your skin’s surface cool throughout your treatment which means you should only feel mild discomfort.
After IPL tretament
Your skin may feel warm and look slightly pink straight after the treatment. This will pass within minutes. Some of our clients see results right away. However, it’s important to get the most out of your plan and improve results by sticking to your treatment course. Your Aesthetician may recommend homecare products and a maintenance package.*
