Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuvenation treatment in Perth
Our Australian climate makes it hard to escape the harsh rays of the sun and the damaging effects sun exposure has on the skin. However, it is possible to help correct the side-effects such as pigmentation, discoloration, age-spots, freckles, and fine lines with Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuventation treatments.
What is IPL photorejuvenation?
IPL photorejuvenation is a non-surgical and non-invasive facial treatment used to assist with a variety of skin concerns caused by sun damage, scarring, and general aging. It’s extremely popular world-wide due to the variety and quality of results experienced by recipients.
A small clear light handle is smoothed gently over the surface of the area to be treated, where a broad-spectrum light is transmitted through to the skin. This light is absorbed by melanin or small blood vessels, creating a response in the body which results in the fading of pigment from vessels or spots such as freckles. Following treatment, you will experience ‘flakes’ of this pigment coming off the treated area to reveal smoother skin underneath.
IPL photorejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body, however it is most commonly used on the face, décolletage, and hands where skin appears the most damaged. IPL works best on light coloured skin due to the contrast necessary to target the affected areas.
