IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a broad spectrum of light used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including:
Hair reduction, pigmentation, ‘age’ spots, freckles, sun damaged skin, capillaries, excessive redness, rosacea, fine lines, open pores, and to improve skin texture and increase collagen growth. Our photo-facial is a skin treatment harnessing the power of IPL light to improve skin health and complexion.
We use the market-leading Ellipse IPL system and have many happy patients. A course of our IPL photo-facials can address many of these concerns and is especially great for clearing pigmentation, rosacea/ redness, fine capillaries, and assist with firming. Targeted pigment may turn darker and slough off over the following 14 days, and capillaries may darken or blanch on the spot.
Depending on your skin type and concerns you may be advised to have 3 -6 treatments at monthly intervals. The IPL pulse into the skin has been described to feel like a flick of a rubber band. There is minimal downtime; pigment spots will need to darken and fall off naturally, and redness from vessels will gradually fade. Some patients may have mild redness immediately after the treatment but can apply mineral make up, allowing them to return to normal activities immediately.
IPL photo-facials are a fantastic solution for anyone wishing to reduce redness or pigment in the skin for a clearer, brighter complexion. IPL can effectively treat facial veins. These treatments can also be performed on the neck and chest to improve the appearance of the decolletage, or the arms and legs to reduce pigment.

Whether you want to correct uneven skin tone, sun damage, pigmentation, redness or target the signs of ageing, our IPL photo-facial might be right for you. This is a non-ablative, minimally invasive option to give you a clearer, fresher complexion.
These target structures are then modified so that a gradual clearance is achieved. The outcome is a clearer complexion with less pigment and redness. We consider our IPL photo-facials to be 'colour corrective' treatments.
This micro-crust will naturally fall off over 7- 10 days to reveal more even pigment.
You are able to return to normal activities immediately after an IPL photo-facial, and we can also apply mineral make up.
