IPL Laser Treatment

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light.

Although IPL may be commonly associated with laser hair removal, harnessing the natural power of light is the cutting edge of skincare technology and has a wide variety of uses.

How does IPL work?

The IPL device works by giving off a range of specially tuned light-waves. Intense light-beams pass through the skin and are absorbed by either the haemoglobin or melanin, which results in the obliteration of the tiny vessels and the melanin pigment being absorbed by the body, making them less visible to see. This works deep within the skin to stimulate production of new collagen for a firming and tightening effect.

What can IPL treat?

IPL has a wide variety of potential applications on its own. In addition, when used alongside other treatments, it combines to enhance the effects and result.

IPL may be used to treat conditions including:

  • rosacea
  • sun damage
  • thread veins / broken capillaries
  • acne
  • skin rejuvenation treatment
  • pigmentation including freckles, sun spots, liver spots, birth marks, melasma
  • redness or flushing
  • improving skin texture through collagen stimulation
  • reducing pore size
  • reducing oiliness

What does IPL cost?

Treatments cost from £250 per session.
