IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, uses precisely controlled pulses of filtered light to achieve effective skin rejuvenation and permanent hair reduction.
Winter has arrived and now is the perfect time to work on rejuvenating your skin after summers of sun damage. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a quick and effective skin treatment for reducing signs of aging, pigmentation, redness and acne by using light in various wavelengths to improve the skin on both the face and the body.
IPL can also be used as a treatment for hair removal and reduction, and is a great alternative to laser. The treatments work by emitting light energy to targeted areas of skin, which pigment cells absorb and convert into heat, causing the pigment to be naturally removed by the body. This also stimulates the production of new collagen and results in clear, rejuvenated skin – ideal for those wanting to reduce the look of dark patches, freckles, sun spots, wrinkles and other skin concerns.
