What is it?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive way to treat skin damage with minimal down time. IPL dramatically improves the appearance of broken capillaries (including rosacea), redness, age spots, sun-induced freckles, and pigmentation, and can be incredibly effective in the treatment of acne. IPL photo rejuvenation in Perth has amazing results on the face, neck, décolletage, hands – and all over the body!
How does it work?
IPL uses light to absorb melanin (the dark pigment in your hair and skin) and haemoglobin (the red colour in your blood vessels). The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood, when treating vascular lesions, or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.

What to expect:
Your treatment will start with your Therapist talking to you about your skin concerns, and performing a skin analysis. We offer a complimentary Observ Skin Diagnosis session when your request IPL Photo rejuvenation in Perth from one of our medi-spas in WA.
To start, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you will be given dark glasses or laser eye shields to protect your eyes. The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand piece (with an inbuilt chiller to help cool the surface of your skin) is gently rested on your skin and you will be notified by your Therapist when the pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band which can be painful, but only lasts a fraction of a second. The treatment is relatively quick in time to perform and for a full face may only take approx. 20 minutes.
The appearance right after treatment is similar to what you will see after a good exercise workout. The flushing and redness will last from a few minutes to several hours after the treatment. If your skin is quite loose you may experience some swelling. If you have any brown spots or uneven pigmentation, they will turn slightly darker after your treatment and eventually fall away or shed after a week or so.
Visual examples really are the best way to show the incredible results of IPL.
