Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

What is IPL
IPL is a non-invasive technology that uses light therapy for eliminating age spots, sun spots, freckles and other unsightly discolourations of the skin, superficial capillaries, and other benign vascular lesions. It is also particularly effective for a high percentage of people with rosacea.

How does IPL work?
The treatment is applied by placing a hand-held treatment unit on your skin. This generates an intense pulse of light into the skin which is absorbed by elements with colour in the skin.

Who is suitable for IPL?
Most people may be treated with IPL; however your doctor should determine if your condition is suitable for IPL treatments. People with dark skin types are more prone to risk of hypo and hyperpigmentation, and therefore may not be suitable candidates.
