IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a miraculous break through in reversing the signs of sun damage and facial imperfections which can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how young and healthy you feel. The signs of photo-ageing and sun damage are typically most visible on a person’s face and body.
Many people suffer from broken capillaries and diffuse erythema that cause them social embarrassment. For both women and men, IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin. Intense Pulsed Light [IPL] can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries [rosacea], benign brown pigment, age spots [sun-induced freckles], mottled pigmentation and poikiloderma.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment with minimal “down-time”. We believe IPL is the secret to youthful skin! At Face Today we are proud to choose the Quantum IPL as it is the gold standard Medical Grade IPL system. Quantum IPL is third generation IPL technology, has up to four times the power of other IPL machines and features 6 treatment heads that allow the treatment of a majority of skin conditions.
IPL is a non-invasive treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to treat specific skin conditions. The light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat which causes thermal damage to a specifically targeted area. A cold gel is usually applied to the area being treated, and you will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied.
To achieve the ultimate results 4-6 treatments are recommended, however depending on the severity of the individual problem being treated will determine the amount of treatment required. Treatments are normally 3 to 4 weeks apart, in some cases patients achieve excellent results and are happy with 2 to 3 sessions. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk – and, it preserves the wonderful “no down time” feature that people appreciate so much. In some cases for minor capillaries only one treatment is required.
The appearance right after treatment is similar to what you will see after a good exercise workout. The flushing and redness will last from a few minutes to several hours after treatment. If your skin is quite loose you may experience some swelling. The brown age spots and uneven pigmentation will turn slightly darker after treatment. The effects of this darkening will last up to 10 days although this may vary as each patient is unique.
IPL can be performed on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, back and virtually any part of the body that requires rejuvenation. Most patients start with the face or décolletage and with results being more than satisfactory they continue to treat other areas of the body.
Intense Pulsed Light [IPL] technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, pigmentation, freckles, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. It offers safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction.
