IPL Treatments

PULSAR IPL LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Commonly known as ‘laser hair removal’ –PULSAR IPL and laser treatments share similarities in that they offer a long term permanent solution to unwanted facial and body hair.  They both use heat and light to destroy the hair follicle however lasers will use a single focused wavelength of light whereas an IPL uses a broad spectrum of pulsed light.

This treatment is suitable for men and women, and for all skin types. We use the very latest Pulsar IPL technology – which is clinically proven to offer you effective, virtually pain-free, quick long lasting results. Imagine never having to wax, tweeze or shave again! IPL is a medically proven treatment for the long lasting removal of unwanted hair.

The FDA approved procedure works by targeting the hair follicle with laser light. This energy damages and goes on to destroy the hair follicle, which should stop the follicle from producing further hairs. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the hair follicle whilst the surrounding tissue remains unaffected.

Treatment times can vary from 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area. We allow approx consultation times before every treatment of roughly 15 mins.

Only hairs in the growth phase can be treated, therefore multiple treatments are needed every 4-12 weeks dependant on the treatment area. The required number of sessions vary but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.

Clinical studies have proved that for 3.7 sessions you will achieve between 75% and 85% permanent hair reduction. The dead follicles will not regenerate.Prices

SKIN REJUVENATION

Facial Rejuvenation is the process of removing sun damage, stimulating new cell growth and increasing collagen production.

In addition to improving uneven skin color, sun damage, facial redness, enlarged pores and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface, firming and rejuvenating the skin. After a course of 6 laser IPL treatments at intervals spaced 4 weeks apart the skin will appear more luminous, brighter and smoother. Improvements can be seen following the first treatment and enhanced results can be seen with each subsequent treatment. The results continue to improve long after the treatment, as IPL stimulates your own natural collagen to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin.

Facial Thread Veins

IPL thread vein removal works by directing an intense beam of light directly at the thread veins which causes the blood inside them to coagulate (dry and then harden). These dried out blood vessels are then absorbed naturally by the body so they will no longer be visible. IPL thread vein removal is especially effective at specifically only damaging the actual thread veins rather than the surrounding tissues, meaning little damage is caused to the surrounding skin. This is an advantage over laser thread vein removal and for this reason it can be used to treat larger thread veins than the laser can.

Typically 4-6 sessions are required at monthly intervals.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition, and Pulsar ipl laser treatment is an excellent aid to reduce and relieve effects. The treatment is quick and relatively pain free, your therapist will advise you of after care to help maintain your results. Typically you need 2 – 4 sessions to reduce the redness and you may have to maintain the reduction at intervals as the rosacea is an underlying condition.

However if you work out your own personal triggers these maintenance sessions may not be needed or the results can be prolonged. In research notes it appears that this condition lasts between 8 – 13 years.

Pigmentation

This treatment is great for treating pigmentation caused by sun damage, age spots or freckles.

Inconsistency in melanocytes will give patches of pigmentation that are darker to the ambient skin. These patches of pigment can be treated without affecting the ambient skin colour.

The light is absorbed in to these patches and the melanocytes are caused to shatter, they break up and dissipate over a period of time. This is suitable for face and also age spots on the hands.

Fungal Nail

Pain free treatment that kills nail fungus using heat and light energy. A course of 2-9 treatments are required to treat the infected nail.

Acne scaring

Marks left by acne can make you feel self conscious, our treatment can greatly reduce the discolourations u a gentle non-invasive manner. This treatment is often recommenned in conjuction with microdermabrasion and led light therapy for superior results.
