IPL is an impressive, non-invasive treatment that calls upon high-intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of pigmentation, discoloration and redness. IPL can also be used for hair removal.

This treatment promotes the replacement of old, tired skin cells with fresh, new ones. Ultimately reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth out texture and tone and enhance skin luminosity.

It can be performed as a standalone treatment or form part of a multi-faceted course of skin rejuvenation treatments.

For the journey to begin, a comprehensive assessment of your skin and test patch is necessary. Your skin is as individual as you are, so our treatment programmes and skin care recommendations are carefully tailored to suit your individual concerns.

What areas can be treated?
Almost all parts of the body are suitable for light based skin treatments. Most common areas we treat are the face, neck, décolletage, hands and shoulders.

How many treatments are needed?
Commonly a series of between 4-6 skin treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

For hair removal, most clients require 6-8 sessions to achieve optimum results, though hair will reduce and become finer with each treatment. For some, maintenance treatments may be required to achieve a lifetime of smooth skin. Compare that to the cost and hassle of a lifetime of waxing or shaving.

What’s the difference between Laser and IPL?
Admittedly it’s a little confusing. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and these machines aren’t lasers.
IPL machines are termed ‘broad spectrum’ because they deliver many wavelengths of light to the skin at once. Lasers, on the other hand, deliver just one specific wavelength, making IPL superior in its ability to treat a number of different skin concerns simultaneously.

What happens during treatment? Does it hurt?
Firstly, you'll be provided with safety protective eyewear. Whilst they may not lift your game style, they will protect those your precious eyes from the light. Your therapist will then pass the IPL over the area to be treated.

IPL is not as painful as the usual hair removal methods used. Some slight discomfort can be felt during the procedure. It is very minimal and tolerable, but rest assured the sensation won't last long. Generally feels no more painful than a warm prickling on the skin. And of course, it will depend on your pain tolerance and your skin sensitivity at the time of treatment.

Treatment Time?
Relatively quick, approximately 15 - 45 minutes depending on the size and number of areas to be treated on the day.

Downtime requirements?
Depending on your treatment type and area, down time will vary. Immediately post-treatment often the skin will appear red or flushed, darkening of lesions such as vessels or pigmentation can be noticed and mild to moderate swelling depending on the concern being treated. Lesions will darken within 3-5 days and will cause micro-crusting to be naturally exfoliated off within 7-10 days for the face and up to 14 days for the body.

A consultation is mandatory prior to treatment to determine the skin's functioning and your goals. Some treatments require the skin to be prepped for a minimum of 2 weeks on a gentle cleanser, pigment inhibitor, hydrator and SPF. Post-treatment requires the application of a non-occlusive gel prescribed by your therapist and available for purchase in clinic.
