IPL Photo Facials

IPL Non-Invasive Medical Aesthetic Solution.

Skin rejuvenation with SharpLights technology gives a younger, glowing look to your skin. IPL is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that uses a flash lamp (Xenon light) to target skins imperfections such as broken blood vessels, age/sun spots, rosacea, uneven skin tones, fine lines and large pores. Skin Rejuvenation treatments are suitable for the face, neck, chest and hands. The IPL handpiece is chilled to cool the skin during treatment making this an extremely comfortable and well tolerated service. With each pulse of light you will feel a warm “flicking” sensation similar to the snap of a small rubber band. You may feel a “sunburn” like sensation in the treatment area for up to a few hours after the treatment. After treatment you can resume to your usual daily activities. Depending on the number of concerns you are treating, and the severity of the condition, a series of 4 to 6 treatments is usually recommended spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart. By providing a series of treatments your desired results will be achieved.

You can even do it over your lunch break!!

Photo Rejuvenation :

Penetration of 580nm and 535nm hand pieces enable this process. Stimulating the skin to heal itself stimulating collagen synthetisis therefore reducing wrinkles and lifting the skin. At the same time, pigmented and vascular lesions are eliminated by selective photothermolysis, in which melanin and hemoglobin will be coagulated and necrosis induced. Using a low-energy and short-pulse broadband light, skin imperfections will be replaced by a newer and younger looking skin.

Vascular Conditions:

How does the treatment work?

Intense pulsed light and laser systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace f the original lesion.

(Minimum of 4 sessions are recommended for visible results)

Am I suitable for treatment?

The fairer the skin, the easier the treatment. The best response is seen with small thread veins, spider naevi and rosacea. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment has to be delayed until the area has completely healed.
How does the treatment feel?
No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable.
Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.

Are there any side effects?

Redness and a warm sensation are normal after treatment.
The vessels should fade quickly, and some disappear immediately.  Sun Protection such as UV Science broad spectrum protection cream should be use at all times in conjunction with ROSA C3 Home care products for prevention and best results.

How long does each treatment take

Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion. 60 min for Full face followed by Cooling facial.

How many treatments are necessary?

Typically 1 -5 treatments are needed for maximum results, spaced approximately every 4 to 6 weeks. Using professional products at home to treat the condition is an asset.

PIGMENTATION ( MELASMA, CHLOASMA, POST INFLAMATORY SCARRING, SUN SPOTS)  

How does Intense Pulsed Light work?

Intense pulsed light Systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the melanin in freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The pigmented area absorbs the light and is heated, and is removed by skin renewal. Following treatment, the pigmented area turns darker and may crust. Over the following weeks the pigmented area will gradually flake away from the skin leaving little trace of the original mark.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. The lesions will darken after treatment and may appear more obvious at first, but gradually the marks will ‘flake’ away .

Continued sun exposure may result in recurrence of the original mark and sunscreen should be used at all times to prevent this happening.  We suggest UV Science full spectrum protection Cream in combination with Radiance White Skin care products.

Are there any side effects?

The skin of some patients becomes quite red immediately after treatment. However, most patients experience no side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days.

How long does each treatment take?

The length of each treatment will depend on the type and size of lesion present, but a typical session will take 15 to 30 minutes for individual spots and 60 minutes for a full face treatment including beauty flash mask.

Acne

 

How does Intense Pulsed Light Work?

The Intense Pulsed Light system releases yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow/green light destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This targeted eating deep in the skin causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum

What should I expect after the treatment?

Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment.  It will be necessary to avoid sun exposure or use a high protection sunscreen for 2 weeks after the treatment

What are the side effects?

The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment. However, most patients experience no side effects and the redness usually disappears within a couple of hours. Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. If is possible that some hair loss will occur in the area treated, and it could be permanent, so men should consider this possibility before agreeing to treatment of their beard area.

How long does each treatment take?

A typical treatment session will take in the region of 30 minutes. Typically Intense Pulsed Light treatment is combined with Glycolic acid facial peel treatments and or Clear Up Facials for maximum results in weekly intervals.  The use of Clear Up products at home is a great asset.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 6 Intense Pulsed Light and 6 Glycolic acid peel treatments will result in significant improvement, depending on the severity of the condition. Intense Pulsed Light treatments should take place fortnightly, with Glycolic acid peel between treatments and or purifying Clear Up Facials.
