FAQ

  • what is IPL combined facial rejuvenation?

    IPL Combined Facial Rejuvenation blends the very latest developments in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology with a mild, exfoliating skin resurfacer and therapeutic DermaLux light treatment for maximum, triple-action collagen-boosting effect. IPL facial rejuvenation works to reduce the appearance of dull and dehydrated skin, skin damage, uneven skin tone and age spots.

  • how does the treatment work?

    An IPL facial rejuvenation treatment uses our Intense Pulsed Light system that releases precisely controlled, short pulses of filtered light. During an IPL photofacial treatment, these pulses of filtered light work to stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin.

    Specific lesions such as thread veins, age spots and freckles can be precisely targeted resulting in a more uniform complexion. Combined with an exfoliating resurfacer treatment and restorative DermaLux light therapy, an IPL facial rejuvenation treatment promotes firmer, more radiant skin, with improved skin tone and texture.

  • how is the treatment carried out?

    Prior to your IPL photofacial treatment, a consultation is conducted in which your medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. There is also an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered and time for a small patch test to be carried out*.

    During the facial rejuvenation treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed before a mild, relaxing skin resurfacer treatment is performed to exfoliate the skin and maximise the results of the intense pulsed light. With the peel removed, protective eyewear is provided and a thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area to guide the light into the skin.

    The light applicator is placed on to the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The handpiece is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area cooled. The IPL facial rejuvenation procedure concludes with a DermaLux light therapy session to soothe the skin and further encourage collagen production.

    * £20 charge for test patch, redeemable against any IPL treatment.

  • am I suitable for treatment?

    Most people are suitable for treatment, except for tanned or dark-skinned individuals.

    Patients must wait 6 months after giving birth (if not breastfeeding) or 6 months after ceasing breastfeeding, before undergoing this procedure. This is period is necessary to allow for post-pregnancy hormones to return to a normal, consistent level.

  • what results should I expect?

    In the months following a facial rejuvenation treatment, skin tightening should increase as new collagen is produced within the dermis. Skin will be firmer and more radiant, with enlarged pores and uneven skin texture and tone reduced.

  • how many treatments will I need?

    A course of 3-or-6 treatments taken at monthly intervals is usually recommended for optimum results. Thereafter, top-up IPL facial rejuvenation treatment sessions may be performed as required, typically once or twice a year.

  • how does the treatment feel?

    The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after the IPL photofacial treatment but this usually subsides quickly. A small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they flake off, leading to a more even skin tone.

  • is there any down time?

    The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after the IPL photofacial treatment but this usually subsides quickly. A small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they flake off, leading to a more even skin tone.
