LASER TREATMENTS / IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy)

IPL is a treatment that uses non-invasive short bursts of high-intensity light to treat melasma, rosacea, and broken capillaries (telangiectasia), and improve skin texture and general discoloration or mottling of skin tones. The flexibility of this device is in its ability to use a broad spectrum of wavelengths which can target specific depths in dermal tissue. This contrasts with “lasers” which only deliver one wavelength at a time.
The energy produced by the IPL is absorbed by discoloured skin cells which causes damage to those specific cells. The body then eliminates this damaged tissue and synthesizes skin cells as well as collagen and elastin fibres (the cross-linked framework that holds skin together and gives it a youthful appearance). The short burst of energy ensures little to no damage to neighbouring healthy cells as the wavelength of light used actively selects red and brown pigments in the skin for treatment only.
Treatment:20 to 30 minutes prior to the treatment a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area that is being treated to take the sensation from a sharp elastic band to a dull elastic band and provides comfort to a client during treatment. The topical anesthetic is washed off and a cooling gel is placed on the areas to be treated. The IPL headpiece is then used to direct light onto the treatment areas. Treatment areas originally pigmented will be even more pronounced with colour. This is expected and shows the wavelength of light has reached the targeted tissue. This is a temporary effect and will dissipate within a few days and brown spots will flake off within two weeks after treatment.
Treatments Required:Typically, 1 to 3 treatments are used to attain full benefit.
Post Treatment:It is important to be well moisturized and avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible. A good sunscreen with SPF 30 will help in preventing future discoloration.
