Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is a quick and effective way to tackle those skin concerns and conditions that can really hamper your confidence. Ideal for treating acne, rosacea, thread veins and pigmentation, this non-invasive treatment uses broad wavelength light to break down the targeted cells, while stimulating collagen and elastin production.




At Aesthetics Lab, our medical-grade IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) machine really stands apart. It utilises innovative, award-winning technology capable of targeting and treating multiple skin conditions. Some can be dealt with in as little as one session. IPL can help to reduce skin pigmentation and rosacea, improve acne and significantly reduce the appearance of thread veins.

How does IPL work?

To achieve all of the above, a broad wavelength light is pulsed onto the area of concern during your IPL treatment. The heat that is produced by the light breaks down blood vessels and/or pigment to achieve a significant reduction in their appearance. It also kills the p.acnes bacteria, thus reducing inflammation and acne.

The IPL technology best feature is its high precision filters which can be modified so the light spectrum responds to the particular skin condition we need to treat. A cooling system is built into the equipment to minimise any possible uncomfortable sensations and prevent blistering or overheating.

Conditions we treat



Step 1

Step 1Consultation

At Aesthetics Lab your health and wellbeing are paramount. During your initial IPL consultation we talk through your medical history and ensure there are no contraindications. You can also use this opportunity to ask us any questions you might have concerning your treatment. Integrity is important to us and we will always provide honest, open answers.

  • Discuss your IPL treatment at length with a qualified aesthetician
  • Share your skin worries and desired goals
  • Create a tailored treatment to meet your needs
Step 2

Step 2During Your Treatment

During your treatment a handheld device will be used to pulse broad wavelength light onto the skin. The skin captures and absorbs the energy in the light, transforming it into heat which capably damages any dilated veins, pigment or acne bacteria and reduces their appearance.

  • Treatments are undertaken in a calm and contemporary, clinical environ
  • An ideal lunchtime treatment, completed in under an hour
  • Little discomfort, thanks to our award-winning innovative cooling technology

Step 3After the Treatment

There is is usually no downtime after an IPL treatment, with the majority of clients recovering almost immediately following their procedure. However, you may experience slight redness of the skin, swelling and scabbing. Always follow aftercare advice provided to you by Aesthetics Lab, both for your own health and safety and to achieve the very best results possible. Avoid any sun exposure at least 2 weeks prior and post your treatment and wear an SPF.
