  • What conditions can Ipl skin rejuvenation treat?
    IPL treatment can help reduce the visible effects of red, flushed skin, rosacea, broken capillaries, pigmented lesions, large pores, sun damage discolouration, mild acne and uneven skin tone. It’s suitable for use on the face, neck, chest and hands
  • How does IPL skin rejuventation work?
    The Ellipse treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer of the skin. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood cells. Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis.
  • What results can i expect?
    Clients can see an improvement after just one treatment, but we advise our clients that it usually takes two to three sessions before they begin to see a noticeable difference in their skin’s tone and texture. Your skin is always subject to change as a result of sun exposure and the natural ageing process. After completing a full course of treatments, and once you are happy with how your skin looks, we recommend occasional “top up” sessions to keep the skin looking fresh. This may be necessary once or twice a year but will depend on your skin and how it responds to the treatment.
