Ready to say goodbye to pesky sun spots, pimple marks and melasma patches? IPL Facial Rejuvenation to the rescue!
Give me the lowdown
PL is an incredibly effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, one of the most frustrating skin concerns! It works by treating the skin with quick and powerful flashes of light that penetrate below the skin’s surface where melanin (aka unwanted brown pigment) lives. The heat helps break down the pigment into tiny little particles that are whisked away by the lymphatic system or rise to the skin’s surface as scabs that will naturally fall off within a week or two. All you have to worry about is looking forward to a super clear, more evenly-toned complexion!
Is it right for me?
IPL Facial Rejuvenation is an excellent treatment for stimulating collagen to improve uneven skin tone and texture, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, sun damage and discoloured skin. It’s also a great option for treating rosacea and killing p.acne! PS - if you’ve got some pesky spots elsewhere on your beautiful bod, let us know and we can assess if they’re suitable for treatment!
Did somebody say benefits?
Rejuvenates the skin by removing pigmentation Great for treating broken capillaries Stimulates collagen and improves skin texture Reduces signs of ageing like pesky fine lines and wrinkles Excellent for calming redness Quick, effective and zero downtime!
How many treatments will I need?
Although those pesky spots won’t vanish right away, you can expect to see some progress after your first treatment. For best results, most people will need 4 sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
Is there any downtime?
This treatment has zero downtime and minimal pain, which means you can get back to business as soon as you leave your appointment! While there’s no downtime, it’s totally normal to experience darkening of freckles for around 3-7 days before they start to fade.
Handy to know
Winter is the perfect time to schedule in your IPL appointments because less sun exposure means less chance of hyperpigmentation on your freshly IPL’d skin! The cooler weather also helps fast track the healing process due to all that time spent rugged up indoors.
SC Pro Tip
The most important thing you can do while having IPL treatments is stay the heck out of the sun! Without adequate sun protection, exposing your freshly IPL’d skin to UV rays will result in darkening of the very spots you’re trying to reduce (and we know ain’t nobody for time for that!) In addition to minimising your time in the sun, be sure to slather on your SPF daily to help keep those dark spots at bay and your complexion crystal clear.
