Improve the overall colour and texture of your skin with IPL Photofacial from E-Med Cosmetics.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment which is used to treat several issues associated with the discolouration of the skin, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, sun damage and rosacea.
Using pulsed light, IPL stimulates darker pigments, breaking down discolouration and allowing for the promotion of a clear complexion.
IPL can also help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does IPL Photofacial work?
Darker pigments, such as age spots and micropigmentation contain higher levels of melanin. By absorbing the broad wavelength light emitted by the IPL device, a heat reaction occurs in the cells of the outermost layer of skin, breaking down the melanin. The skin then absorbs the damaged melanin, decreasing its appearance on the skin’s surface. This heat reaction also coagulates blood vessels, which reduces redness, and stimulates collagen production. The increased collagen production can then naturally fill in lines and wrinkles or shallow scarring.
Will IPL Photofacial work for me?
IPL Photofacial is the perfect treatment for people suffering from sun damage, hyperpigmentation or other skin discolourations.
IPL Photofacial can be used on the entire face or targeted to a specific area on the face, chest, arms or hands.
How many sessions will I need?
For optimum results, we would recommend most clients will require 3-6 treatments.
How long does a session last?
On average, sessions last between 30 minutes to an hour.
Are there any side effects?
Following this treatment you find the skin is red and sensitive for a while. This feeling of mild sunburn usually quickly wears off. You may also notice the skin is flaky for up to a week, as existing skin is replaced.
