Exposure to the sun can cause photoaging, which damages the skin and gives you a dull complexion. It can also cause facial imperfections such as pigmented spots, enlarged pores, fine lines and age spots. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology can revitalise damaged skin by improving the superficial and deeper skin layers. IPL works by generating bursts of red or blue light which cause heat damage to the dermal tissue. The body then breaks down this tissue using its natural processes to remove unwanted marks. IPL is a targeted treatment and does not harm or remove any of the healthy epidermal layers of the skin. Skin imperfections are visibly reduced after the first treatment and the appearance of the skin will improve with subsequent treatments.
