Intense Pulsed Light
Intense pulsed light is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment that delivers high-intensity light into the deeper layers of the skin to improve fine lines and wrinkles, vascular lesions, redness, broken capillaries, and sun spots.
The range and wavelength of the light emitted during the treatment can be adjusted to accommodate your specific skin needs and concerns.
At Beacon Face and Dermatology we only offer the best technology currently available which is why we have chosen the M22 mulitmodular device by Lasertec to delvier our IPL services.
Also known as photorejuvenation, intense pulsed light is a non-ablative treatment that emits intense, visible pulses of light onto a targeted area without damaging the surrounding skin. The light energy is absorbed by melanin (responsible for skin pigment) and hemoglobin (red blood cells in the blood vessels). As a result, these structures become damaged and are absorbed by the body or brought to the surface of the skin where they will slough off.
Intense pulsed light is successful in addressing fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, visible capillaries and redness While results may be visible after one session, a series of 3-5 treatments is typically recommended for optimal results. Due to its non-ablative nature, intense pulsed light requires very little downtime and can be repeated once a month as advised by your clinical therapist or doctor.
A patch test is required in every patient before commencing a course of IPL treatments.
Patch test is complimentary and must be carried out at least 48 hours prior to first treatment. This is not a treatment we advise doing if planning a trip to a hot climate and for this reason a lot of clients will opt to start their IPL course from September on.
