FAQ

What does IPL photorejuvenation (photofacial) do for the skin?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is used for: Lightening and removing hyperpigmentation (brown spots) on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels on the face, neck and chest Improve texture of the skin, stimulates collagen, improve pore size and reduce oiliness.

How does IPL improve the appearance of blood vessels, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation?

The device emits a range of lightwaves that target hemoglobin (red) or melanin (brown pigment). The light is absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin. This damages either the vessel wall or fragments melanin, which is then absorbed by the body, rendering them less visible.

How long does it take for IPL treatments to work?

Most people require 3-5 monthly treatments and full results are seen at around 6 months. You can see some improvement with each treatment, but it’s common for your response to be slightly different with each treatment. The more sun damage or redness you have, the more treatments you will most likely need. Some cases require more than 5 treatments. Expect to see gradual clearing over time.

Do IPL treatments hurt and how long will they take?

For hyperpigmentation, the spots generally look darker for 3-7 days. Crusting can occur, if this happens it will resolve in approximately 1month.
