IPL Skin Rejuvenation
 
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light technology.  IPL works wonders for removing red splotches, brown spots, and scarring, as well as reducing pore size, eliminating and reducing wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture, smoothness and quality. 
  
IPL has been used to treat hyperpigmentation, melasma, age and sunspots, broken capillaries, spider veins, stretch marks, and other conditions as well.

IPL works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin by activating the skin's inflammatory mediators such as fibroblasts within the skins dermal layer. This in turns causes the fibroblasts to generate new elastin (ie. elastic fibres which improves the skin elasticity) and neocollagenesis (formation of new collagen) for improving the skin's texture ( for example improving large pores and fine atrophic scars).

The treatment also helps with erythematous scars (such as red acne scars and red stretch marks). Consequently, the treatment can result in plumping up the skin and give you a fresher look with a more even complexion with even pigmentation. It achieves best results when part of a series of treatments, usually a month apart.
  
 We are regulated by the Healthcare Inspectorate of Wales for all of our Laser and IPL treatments and are members of the British Medical Laser Association and the European Laser Association.

Our treatment protocols have been clinically developed and validated as a collaboration with the IPL manufacturer and the respected dermatologist Dr Hugues Cartier. Dr Cartier has over 20 years experience as a dermatologist specialising in  laser and IPL treatments.





















During an IPL procedure, intense light from a range of wavelengths is focused on the specific parts of your skin that you are treating. The IPL device itself is gently pressed onto the skin, with a smooth, transparent surface emitting the light on the targeted areas. This light helps to spur on the production of collagen, which will help to fill in lines and wrinkles or shallow scarring, while also reducing redness, discolouration, and spots.

The technology uses a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light. The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores (e.g.  oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body.

The targeted tissue that has been damaged by the IPL treatment is naturally removed by the body. Depending on what is being treated, the exact wavelength range can be adjusted to optimise results.

You will wear an eye mask to protect your eyes and vision during the procedure, and topical gels may be applied on your skin to prevent overheating. 

The entire procedure is very quick, taking about half an hour to complete, although the exact length will depend on what you are specifically treating, and its size or scope. Once it has been completed though, you will likely spend a very short recovery and observation period in the clinic before being allowed to go home.
