You wish you were never exposed extensively to sun bed in your youth, or you simply do not like your freckles and age spots anymore?
You don’t have to live with sun-damaged skin, freckles and age spots anymore. With IPL you can clear those pigmented areas while improving skin tone and texture.
Your face can be treated in less than 30 minutes and you can return to your normal activities straight away. Typically, a series of treatments at 4weeks apart are recommended to clear your skin of pigmented lesions however you may just want a freshen up in which case just one treatment may be sufficient depending on the condition of your skin.
For pigmented lesions, the light is converted to heat and breaks up the lesion which will then darken, dry up and naturally shed from the skin in approximately 10 days.
Rarely, after treatment you may expect a slight sun burn like feeling and slight reddening of the skin, however this usually subsides within about half an hour.
It is advisable to complete your course of treatments at least 1 month prior to any special event that you may have coming up such as your wedding to allow enough time for any darkening of lesions to fade from view.
It is highly recommended that you use a 30+ sun screen to protect your skin at any time but especially post treatment as your skin will be more susceptible to sun burn. If you have had un-protected sun exposure, used tanning creams, tanning beds or solariums within 2 weeks prior to your treatment you MUST inform us PRIOR to your appointment.
