Photorejuvenation or intense pulse light (IPL) treatment is a popular treatment that uses broad spectrum light to treat skin damaged by the sun and through the normal course of external ageing (freckles, age spots, sun damage), Photorejuvenation is also used to treat vascular lesions (spider veins, diffuse redness, rosacea). Photorejuvenation (IPL) is one of our most popular laser skin treatments because the results speak for themselves – the treatment is highly effective and takes around 45 minutes to perform.
Vamp Cosmetic Clinic offers the newest state of the art IPL device – The Nordlys Ellipse IPL by Candela Medical. Ellipse IPL is superior to other IPL devices because it’s capable of treating a broader range of pigmentation and vascular skin conditions, and is safer for both lighter and darker skin types. Ellipse IPL is also significantly more comfortable than other IPL treatments. Our skilled Dermal Therapists are experienced in performing photorejuvenation (IPL) treatments for a wide range of skin concerns.
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Photorejuvenation (IPL) takes around 45 minutes to perform for a full face treatment. Ellipse IPL is much safer than other IPL devices on the market. Chosen for it’s high efficacy and safety profile, Ellipse offers a wider range of wavelengths and is safer for a broader range of skin types. Our therapists are highly experienced in performing IPL treatments for a broad range of skin conditions, and laser safety is of utmost importance in our clinic.
Not all IPL devices (and operators) are safe. Cheaper IPL devices paired with inexperienced operators are prevalent and can result in very serious burns and even scarring. Choose your clinic wisely.
WILL I FEEL IT?
We perform a lot of photorejuvenation (IPL) in our clinic and the treatment is tolerated well by most clients. Ellipse IPL is unique in that it is more comfortable than many other IPL treatments. For optimal client comfort, we offer complimentary topical numbing cream for most of our IPL treatments. Clients describe the treatment as a rubber band snapping lightly against the skin followed by a warm flash of light. After the treatment, the skin will feel like it’s mildly sun burned which should subside in a matter of hours.
IS THERE ANY ‘DOWN TIME’ ASSOCIATED WITH THE TREATMENT?
Photorejuvenation (IPL) is non-invasive meaning the top layers of the skin are kept intact. Therefore, there is no significant ‘down time’ associated with the treatment. You will likely experience darkening of the pigment or redness in the skin following treatment – this is commonly described as the ‘milo’ or ‘coffee ground’ effect. This is normal, and a sign the treatment was effective. This will generally fade and ‘flake’ off within 1-2 weeks. The skin may be exfoliated to remove the darkened pigment to reveal clear beautiful skin.
You may return to your daily activities immediately after treatment and apply make up the next day.
It’s important you follow the post care instructions explained to you by your therapist following the treatment including the application of sunscreen.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Any area of the body can be treated with Ellipse photorejuvenation (IPL). The most common areas are the face, neck, back of hands, décolletage (chest) and neck but we also treat arms and legs or any other part of the body. Although you will see improvement in pigment and redness in the skin after your first treatment, a series of 3-5 treatments is usually recommended for best results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Although you will likely see some improvement in your skin after your first treatment (in fact, you’re most likely to see a significant improvement after your first treatment), most people require 3-5 treatments for best results, with 3-4 weeks between treatments. You may need to return for maintenance treatments every 4-8 months depending on your skin care routine, exposure to sunlight and the ageing process. After an initial course of treatments, many of our clients incorporate photorejuvenation (IPL) treatment into their skin care routine 1-3 times a year for glowing skin all year round.
