Skin Rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation at JR Medical in Southend-on-Sea, 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. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) skin rejuvenation stimulates the body's own natural processes to form new collagen and elastin, delaying the process of ageing.

What Happens During IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?

The patient will lie on a bed with their eyes covered while an intense burst of light is shone onto the skin. No anaesthetic is used during the procedure. Although the process may be mildly uncomfortable, many patients report a sense of general wellbeing afterwards.

No recovery time is needed with IPL skin rejuvenation, but the skin may look slightly reddened after treatment. IPL Skin Rejuvenation 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 are required.

Skin Rejuvenation is often combined with other treatments such as Botox, filler, microdermabrasion or chemical peels. As with any cosmetic treatment, you should consult a qualified practitioner before deciding to go ahead. We offer a free consultation before booking your treatment.

What are the Risks of IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

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 during IPL treatments doesn't have dangerous UV or infrared rays and it doesn’t generate heat, so it can' burn the skin.

IPL skin rejuvenation treatment is unsuitable for anyone who suffers from epilepsy or porphyria. You should also avoid exposure to the sun for 24-48 hours after treatment and use sunscreen and moisturisers.

Who Can Benefit from IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

IPL is employed in the treatment of a range of dermatological conditions and can treat
pigmented lesions with rapid recovery.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation can be used in Rosacea treatment. Rosacea is a chronic disease that affects millions of men and women. It has been investigated that the use of intense pulsed light for the treatment of the redness, flushing, and breakouts associated with rosacea would have a significant effect.
