IPL PHOTOFACIAL

Exposure to the sun accelerates the ageing process of the skin and can cause disruption in the normal blood supply to the skin (which results in vascular disorders such as telangiectasias or diffuse redness).

It can also cause irregular pigmentation that shows as freckles (ephelides) or age-spots (solar lentigines) and irregular pore size.

 

Say goodbye to these effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) Photofacial/ Fotofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL™ photorejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, Photofacial/ Fotofacial treatments may be the dermatological approach you've been looking for.

IPL Photofacial FAQ's

Is it suitable for all skin tones?


The skin rejuvenation is based on light absorption in melanin and haemoglobin, therefore treatments are more effective on light skin that is not sun tanned at the time of treatment. However, our machine is pre-programmed settings for each treatment so all skin tones can ensure they will receive the correct energy output for their complexion. Age spots contain a substance called melanin, and diffuse redness contains a substance called haemoglobin. When cells containing lots of these substances, they are condensed together, this is where the IPL light will target the area to rejuvenate it almost immediately.




How long does it takes?


The glass prism within the AW3® applicator that guides the light to the skin is 15mm by 50mm, so a large area can be targeted in one flash of light. Our system has the largest spot size on the market and is the only system to have auto flashes without delay. This mean doing a facial will only take 5-10 minutes.




Does it hurt?


Skin type is a fundamental effecting factor in this treatment as due to the high level of pigment in the skin. Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anaesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin. You may find it comforting to cool the skin after the treatment.




Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?


The light used is a completely safe, visible light. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed by our unique filtering system. Since tanning takes place by accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin, it is, however, important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning cream) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb more light, which makes treatment less effective. Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary. But people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or applying an ointment prescribed by the doctor. Furthermore, it is recommended to use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 50) for a few weeks following treatment.




What can I expect?


You may notice that the skin looks a little “dirty” for a few days following treatment. After that you will find that your skin looks smoother and fresher. You might choose to have 1 – 2 annual maintenance treatments in order to keep your youthful appearance.




What Is IPL™ Photofacial/Fotofacial?


A photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a short procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL™ photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial/fotofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment. For even greater cosmetic enhancement, patients may also opt for a FotoFacial RF™, a procedure that combines radio waves with light waves to achieve excellent results.
