IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments are a very effective way to treat various skin and hair problems which would otherwise be unresolved. IPL is a safe, effective, rapid, affordable, non-invasive treatment that is suitable to most people. This unique advanced treatment is very successful on most skin types, and the darker the hair the more efficient the removal. Once you have tried Energist Elite you will never look back!
IPL can provide a long term solution to facial problems, such as red flushing (rosacea), thread veins and red spots as well as red leg veins; with minimal down time or risk, in just a few quick and easy treatments.
How does it work?
Depending upon the treatment being carried out, light emitted from the Energist i300 System is preferentially absorbed by the specific structure in the skin. For skin rejuvenation, various structures can absorb the light and repair the damage caused by ageing and the sun.
What conditions can be treated?
The Energist i300 system has been designed to provide both safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatments. Many skin complaints caused by ageing and sun damage can be successfully treated. These include: redness, acne, thread/spider veins, rosacea, age spots, freckles, pigment changes, skin texture and fine lines.
Who can be treated?
The versatility of the i300 System provides a safe and effective treatment for most skin types, but a consultation with one of our trained therapists will provide you with a complete treatment programme. As the treatments have little or no visible side effects,effective procedures can be performed quickly with little downtime.
After a full consultation with a trained therapist, a comprehensive treatment programme can be developed to match your needs and requirements. Depending upon which treatments are to be undertaken the basic procedure will stay the same: the area to be treated will be prepared and the applicator head will be stepped across to ensure complete coverage. Due to the large applicator head treatments can be performed quickly, which we know is important with today’s hectic lifestyle.
Is there anything I need to do prior to, or after, treatment?
It is advisable to stay out of the sun, and away from tanning beds, for at least 6 weeks prior to any treatment to ensure that your skin is as close as possible to its natural colour. You must ensure that all cosmetics are removed from the treatment area with a good cleanser and then allow the skin to settle. As the skin may be slightly more sensitive post-treatment it is recommended to use skin products developed for sensitive skin and again avoid the sun or tanning beds.
When will I see results?
Dependent upon the treatment performed and the area treated, results will be noticed after a series of treatments over a period of months. This is due to the body’s natural hair growth cycles and skin renewal. There is no ‘magic wand’ that will make everything perfect, but a good skincare regimen that is devised in conjunction with your therapist will ensure the optimum results that you desire.
