IPL Skin Rejuvenation Facial
The Ellipse light is a second generation Intense Pulse Light system used for skin rejuvenation and the removal of pigmentation, acne and thread veins. We offer a free consultation and patch test to see if you are suitable for treatment.
The pigmentation will become darker in colour immediately after the treatment. A few days after the treatment the pigmented areas will develop a light crust (this is a good sign that the treatment has worked). After that, the skin will look smoother and fresher. A few more treatment sessions may be required to maintain a smooth and youthful appearance.
What to expect
During the treatment a gel is applied to the skin and then the IPL is emitted into the skin through a hand held device. The sensation that is felt depends upon the amount of melanin found in the skin. The feeling is described as a heat sensation and clients have compared it to mild sunburn after the treatment.
Treatment name FAQs
Q: How many treatments will I need?
On average 1-3 treatments at 4 week intervals are needed for the best results. Top up treatments may be needed in the future to maintain these results. For the optimum collagen stimulation effect with skin rejuvenation, 6 treatments at 4 week intervals would be recommended.
Q: Do I need to take special precautions before or during the treatment process?
It is important to avoid tanning (sun, sunbed, fake tan) before and during the treatment period. If not, your skin will absorb more light, which makes the treatment less effective. Generally no post-treatment care is necessary, but patients with sensitive skin may benefit from applying soothing aloe vera gel. Furthermore, it is recommended to use a SPF 30+ daily.
