IPL Photorejuvenation

Turn back the clock and restore youthfulness to your skin with Photorejuvenation! MLAS offer the very latest and most effective way of improving benign pigmented lesions and vascular damage that are of a cosmetic concern, such as:

Skin texture, fine lines, pigmentation, sun damage, facial veins, redness, enlarged pores, acne scarring, ephelides (freckles), hyper pigmentation and numerous other facial flaws.

 

Benefits:

  • Dramatically improves sun-damage, age spots, the symptoms of rosacea, broken veins and capillaries
  • No harsh chemicals or invasive treatments necessary
  • Skin glows and looks more youthful
  • Any area of the body can be treated

 

 

How It Works:

IPL Photorejuvenation is unique because it simultaneously erases skin damage while improving skin tone and texture.

Prior to the treatment, an anaesthetic cream and cooling gel is applied to the skin to minimise discomfort.

Then by using a relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light we can gently heat and eliminate imperfections, replacing them with fresh, younger looking skin.

 

What to Expect:

During the procedure you can expect to feel a little degree of discomfort, depending on the pain threshold of the individual.

Most people explain the procedure as a gentle heat snapping on the skin. A topical anaesthetic is available if you experience any discomfort.

After the procedure you may experience some reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes within 24 hours.

You can resume your normal activities as usual but you should be aware to avoid exposing the treated area to the sun, solarium and fake tans between treatments and also 4 weeks prior to your first treatment.

You can apply makeup but we always recommend a mineral based makeup such as Jane Iredale. This will avoid any irritations that can occur with some makeup.

How Many Treatments will I need?

The amount of treatments necessary will depend on the degree of damage your skin has incurred.

On average most patients require 2-4 treatments, one treatment every 3-4 weeks. In most cases we normally achieve a 50 – 75% improvement in just the first session.

Once your treatments are complete, we will offer advice on how to preserve the renewed health and youthfulness of your skin.
