IPL and Laser
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) & Laser light technology uses the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent results in photorejuvenation therapy. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, our doctors will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by aging and sun exposure. Your skin will be smoother, more vibrant and it will have a more youthful appearance. Common conditions treated by IPL and laser include
- Fine wrinkles
- Age spots
- Freckles (Solar lentigines)
- Brown spots, birth marks
- Blotchy chest and neck (Poikiloderma)
- Small facial veins (Telengiectasia)
- Redness and flushing
- Port wine stains
- Red spots (haemangiomas)
- Enlarged pores
- New burn scar
The light energy delivered by IPL and Laser gently heats up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulate skin cells to generate new collagen. This helps restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colours and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sun light, such as the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders. This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases patients are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities right away.
