Now is the time for a new you

After the summer sun destruction to your skin, the tell-tale signs of ageing such as brown hyperpigmentation and red capillaries are  scattered over our facial and body skin. The cooler months are the best time to rejuvenate your skin using IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial. This treatment is also known as photorejuvenation.

IPL used light photons to rejuvenate skin and is the world’s most popular skin rejuvenation treatment. In contrast to laser resurfacing, IPL does not injure the skin’s surface and has no or little recovery time. The light is converted to heat energy, which fades specific targets resulting in a more even, youthful clearer complexion. Clients who have had IPL treatments once or twice a year over five years or more have healthier, more radiant and youthful skin.

IPL is used on skin to even out a range of skin issues, including discolouration, texture, distended capillaries (redness), rosacea and poikiloderma on the neck. Most clients who have IPL tolerate the treatment well. The sensation is likened to the snapping of a few rubber bands at one time.  The treatments are designed to give visible results over multiple visits, varying from one to three over a few months. Almost all clients see the improvement after the first treatment. For some people the side effects of the IPL may include swelling or redness of the area, which may last a few days. Darker brown pigmentation usually washes off after seven days, and make-up can be used to cover this.

Remember, IPL is a procedure with outstanding results, not a relaxing facial, giving our clients a more youthful you. Remember your body also. This treatment is suitable for face, neck, chest, arms, legs, backs etc. (remove those freckles).

While becoming a more youthful you, remember skin tags and fibromas (Adele says barnacles). Do not simply burn barnacles off your skin, leaving white marks. Have your skin feeling smooth like a baby’s bum. We use Lam probe. Again Sue and Adele have been performing this procedure over many many years. It is not new; it just delivers results.
