IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Therapy

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment that uses an intense light source to penetrate the skin. As the light is less focussed and less penetrating than laser treatments, there is less discomfort during the procedure and a shorter downtime afterwards. IPL sometimes also called ‘photo-rejuvenation’ or ‘photo-facial’.

Our IPL machine is suitable for use on most skin type and produces outstanding, painfree results after just a few treatments.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Therapy FAQs


What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light is a technology where light is converted into heat energy.
Treatments are like a very powerful camera flash lamp being held against your skin.
The selected light waves target chromophores (colour pigments) such as melanin in brown spots and freckles; and such as haemoglobin in broken or diffused blood vessels. The light waves can also target specific protein molecules in acne bacteria and in collagen. IPL treats all conditions without disruption to the skin’s surface.

How does IPL skin rejuvenation work?

– Skin Tone and Re-texture
– Pigmentation
– Vascular Lesions
– Acne & Rosacea
Skin Rejuvenation is also known as photo-rejuvenation – the non-invasive, non surgical face lift.
The Intense Pulsed Light is absorbed by colour particles which are present in blood and in melanin.
The IPL also treats the propioni-bacterium in acne and protein present in cells which produce collagen.
Pigmentation marks slowly come to the skin’s surface and are shed naturally.
Vascular lesions dissipate into the lymphatic system for excretion, just as bruises do.
Enlarged pores, minor pitting and scarring diminish and fade.
Fine lines and wrinkles are softened and may virtually disappear.
Collagen & elastin production increases.
