Photo Rejuvenation or intense pulsed light is a skin treatment which helps conditions such as ageing of the skin (texture and wrinkles) as well as pigmentation freckles, rosacea, broken capillaries and sun-damage.
In this treatment, collagen is stimulated resulting in rejuvenated skin.
For the treatment, a cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. The patient is given protection for the eyes. The small glass surface of the IPL hand piece is placed on the skin and pulses of light are applied. There may be a slight stinging like the snapping of a rubber band against your skin. The light passes through the epidermis, changes into heat and destroys the pigmentation. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4-6 sessions that provide excellent long term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes.
Rosacea is a common genetic disorder where the blood vessels dilate easily causing blushing or flushing of the face. It is very common and can cause reddening on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. Some people get little bumps and pimples on the red part of their faces. It mostly affects people in their 30s and 40s, generally of light skin complexions. IPL is the treatment of choice for rosacea, although, sometimes rosacea may also require topical creams or medications.
Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of the skin become darker in colour than the surrounding skin. The darkness occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits in the skin. Age or liver spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage and are usually found on the hands, face or other areas that are frequently exposed to the sun. IPL offers a safe, noninvasive solution, which can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior results and outstanding satisfaction. Gradual clearance occurs over several weeks so more than one treatment may be necessary.
Spider veins are a sign of impaired blood flow. The medical term for is Telangiectasia. They develop as we age when our skin and blood vessels become less elastic. Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause are thought to provoke their development, indicating why women are more prone to them than men. One can also inherit a tendency towards this condition. Thread veins are not dangerous but may become larger and increase in number over time.Back to Top
