WHAT IS IPL – INTENSIVE PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT?
IPL is a non-invasive light-based technology used to permanently improve many skin conditions. Such conditions as age spots, sun spots, freckles, superficial capillaries and other unsightly discolouration of the skin can be eliminated using this technology. IPL is also incredibly effective for those of us who suffer from rosacea and can even stimulate fibroblast causing increased collagen production in your skin for a more youthful, lively, healthier looking you!
HOW DOES IPL WORK?
A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed handpiece to your skin and generate an intense pulse of light which will be absorbed by the targets in your skin. The light delivered from the handpiece is delivered at a high intensity during a very short period of time. It is this rapid discharge of light that provides the high energy levels required for each IPL treatment to be effective.
Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has one or more sun spots, freckles or skin discolouration they’d love to get rid of! A doctor’s letter confirming that no skin cancers are present is usually required before commencing your treatment cycle and a series of 4–6 treatments spaced 4 week apart are required for optimal results. Treatments areas such as backs of hands, forearms, décolletage and face will respond well.
Everybody loves the sunshine! Limited exposure is good for the soul and the immediate effects it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired. However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen, which in turn causes damage to the skin making it feel wrinkled and coarse and looking red and tired. Skin rejuvenation treatments will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the production of collagen in the skin.
Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population. GBG trained therapists can offer treatments which will reduce facial vascular blemishes such as red flushing (rosacea), thread veins and red spots found on cheeks and around the nose with minimal downtime or risk. A treatment cycle of 4–6 treatments spaced 2–3 weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome.
Our trained therapists are now able to offer IPL based acne management programs. These unique treatments are designed to specifically slow the overall production of oil that lead to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general. Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition. Treatment should be spaced approximately 1–2 weeks apart.
Intense pulsed light is a non-laser technology, which supplies a broad spectrum of light that is pulsed deep into the skin layers. anti-aging IPL specialists provide treatments.
The therapeutic light energy is transformed to heat energy, heating up and destroying specific treatment targets without damaging the surrounding tissue. Specific treatment targets might include unwanted pigment, brown spots, sun damage and red facial veins. The body recognises these damaged cells as waste and removes them through the lymphatic system.
What conditions can Intense Pulsed Light treat?
Pigment spots and sun damage skin. The overall appearance of aging skin is primarily related to sun exposure with resultant UV damage to the collagen and elastic fibers of the skin. This causes skin imperfections such as: skin laxity, dull complexion, enlarged pores, mottled pigmentation, excessive freckling and red and brown sun spots. IPL minimises or eliminates red and brown spots, evens out skin colour and texture and minimises red or flushed appearing skin.
Broken veins and capillaries
Over time, ageing, trauma, sun exposure and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of veins and capillaries to break. These appear as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes. Occasionally other treatments are required, such as sclerotherapy or / & diamthermy.
Rosacea is a skin ailment that leaves people red faced with chronic flushing. This is caused by the dilation of capillaries and blood vessels. Rosacea can also cause white pimples and blisters on the nose and cheeks. This condition can affect both men and women. IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels and redness without injuring the surrounding healthy skin, while greatly reducing the episodes of flushing with long-term effectiveness.
Are multiple treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating and the severity of the individual problem, a series of five or six treatments may be recommended. Depending of the size of the treatment area, each treatment takes about 30 minutes.
Does treatment hurt?
Most clients find the treatments very tolerable, with minimal discomfort. Cooling devices on the tip of the device cool the skin on contact, protecting the skin while directing the light energy to the target. Recovery is rapid and clients may return to normal activity straight after treatment.
Is the treatment safe?
The IPL system is able to deliver light energy (or heat) to the skin and hair in a gentle way – unlike laser systems. The IPL hand piece has refrigerated technology built into the system, cooling the skin during the treatment, allowing for a premium result, comfort and protection. Anti-aging practitioners have a level of experience necessary to prevent problems associated with the use of laser and IPL technology from occurring.
