INCREASED COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
In cosmetic dermatology we use of IPL to stimulate the lower skin layers, encouraging the fibroblasts there to produce more collagen to strengthen and plump the facial skin. This helps to improve the texture and elasticity of the skin, reducing wrinkles, shrinking pores and giving the skin a firmer, fresher look.
You might also notice that as the pore size in the skin shrinks, your skin becomes a little less oily, reducing the risk of spots, blackheads and whiteheads.
IPL is a great treatment for mild and moderate inflammatory acne, for which I get remarkable results. Ideally, the treatment should be combined with methods to deal with the underlying problem in order to clear the acne permanently.
This is a wonderful treatment for clearing an annoying spot or boil.And great for anyone with permanent acne, as they will greatly benefit from regular treatments.
The innovative and advanced IPL system filters light from a flash lamp in two targeted ways to ensure that only light with the appropriate wavelength is allowed to reach the skin to prevent future acne. Haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, absorbs this light and heats up in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes minor injury to the sebaceous glands, which decreases the overproduction of oil that leads to acne. This solution to dealing with acne is easy and essentially painless, as any potentially harmful wavelengths are filtered out by advanced IPL system.
Rosacea is a skin condition that produces excessive blushing and redness of the nose, cheeks and chin areas of the face. Luckily there is a fast, simple, safe and cost effective solution to eliminate unwanted redness and patchy skin with Rosacea Treatments -IPL.
IPL offers a practically painless and long-term solution for rosacea treatment. The facial redness, flushing and visible blood vessels associated with this condition will gradually vanish with targeted IPL treatment. Controlled injury to the blood vessels initiates the body’s natural response to break down and remove damaged tissue. New cells rebuild and replace the problem area with clear, beautiful skin.
Rosacea has periods of flares and remission, and although there is no known permanent cure – the condition can definitely be contained and managed.
REDUCING AND REMOVING SUN SPOTS / LIVER SPOTS AND SKIN PIGMENTATION
Sun spots (also known as ‘liver spots’) are the darker, pigmented areas that appear on lighter coloured skin types due to ageing and sun exposure. These lesions are known medically as lentigines. They are completely harmless but when they appear on the hands and face they can cause problems with self esteem and confidence.
Their appearance can be made much less obvious with a series of IPL photorejuvenation treatments.
The pigment within lentigines absorbs more energy from intense pulsed light during IPL treatments than does the surrounding skin. As with thread veins, this causes very localised heating that disrupts the pigment molecules without affecting the normal skin immediately adjacent to the area of pigmentation.
As the protein molecules that make up the pigments are broken apart, they are reabsorbed by the body, and the colour of the spot changes. With repeated photorejuvenation treatments, the spot starts to blend in with the surrounding skin, becoming much less noticeable.
IPL can also be used to even out the irregular pigmentation on the skin that can arise from sun exposure over the years. It works in the same way as described above.
