IPL Skin Rejuvenation Essex

What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

Skin is supported by underlying collagen and elastin which diminish with age, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. As the IPL ski rejuvenation stimulates the body's own natural processes to form new collagen and elastin, therefore it delays the process of ageing.

As with any cosmetic treatment, you should consult a qualified practitioner before deciding to go ahead.

Patients lie on a bed with eyes covered while an intense burst of light is shone onto the skin. No anaesthetic is used, and although the process may be mildly uncomfortable, many patients report a sense of general wellbeing afterwards. No recovery time is needed, but the skin may look slightly reddened. IPL Skin Rejuventation treatments are given in courses of four to six sessions over a three-week to four-week period. To achieve maximum benefit after the initial course, maintenance treatments should be offered.

Skin Rejuvenation is often combined with other treatments such as Botox or Filler or any sort of dermabrasion and peel.

Risks
The effects of this light source as a skin enhancer were discovered through its use in hospital dermatology and oncology departments. It has been used for more than 10 years in hospitals with no side-effects. The light used doesn't have dangerous UV or infrared rays or generate heat, so it can't burn the skin. The treatment is unsuitable for anyone who suffers from epilepsy or porphyria. Avoid exposure to the sun for 24-48 hours after treatment and use sunscreen and moisturisers.


Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is a chronic disease that affects millions of men and women. Topical and oral antibiotics are effective, yet often leave individuals with treatment plateau associated erythema and persistent flushing. It had been investigated that the use of intense pulsed light for treatment of the redness, flushing, and breakouts associated with rosacea would have a significant effect.
