You may have heard of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment but you may not be aware that IPL skin rejuvenation is one of the most popular procedures around for giving your skin a whole new look. IPL skin rejuvenation is also referred to as ‘photo rejuvenation’ and it can be used to freshen up the appearance of the skin and in turn help make those fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation far less noticeable. IPL is a very quick and easy treatment to have and with almost no downtime you will be able to simply get on with your day afterwards.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation – what is involved?
The IPL skin rejuvenation option is very different to laser treatments as there is no erosive aspect to it. The light is pulsed onto the skin and the IPL machine can be adjusted to emit the right amount of light for the specific problem being addressed. The light can be used to breakdown pigments as well as deal with scarring.
Your first step with this type of treatment is to speak to the experienced team at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic in Aylesbury. We can book you in for an initial consultation where you can speak at length to the professional and experienced practitioners. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have about IPL skin rejuvenation and will guide you through the process every step of the way. We will take a detailed medical history from you and talk to you about the results that you want to achieve. This allows us to make the best decisions for your treatment and work with you so that your goals are within reach.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation – what should I expect?
Most people will see a result from their very first treatment but you may need to have more than one session of IPL skin rejuvenation for long term results. Minor side effects of the treatment may include the skin glowing a little pink and feeling very warm. The effect of this has been compared to mild sunburn. Some clients may also notice that the treated area is a little swollen. All these side effects are perfectly normal and will subside within a few days of the treatment taking place.
Those who are having IPL skin rejuvenation treatments to deal with skin pigmentation will need to be aware that the pigmented section of the skin may appear darker immediately following the treatment. This could last for a few days but the skin will gradually breakdown this darker tone and the skin below will be free of pigmentation. If the treatment is being used for spider veins or broken capillaries then these should disappear almost instantly.
