Intense pulsed light is a non-laser technology, which supplies a broad spectrum of light that is pulsed deep into the skin layers treating Vascular Conditions, Pigmentation Conditions, Acne Management & Collagen/Elastin production.
The therapeutic light energy is transformed to heat energy, heating up and destroying specific treatment targets without damaging the surrounding tissue. Specific treatment targets might include unwanted pigment, brown spots and red facial veins. The body recognizes these damaged cells as waste and removes them through the lymphatic system.

What conditions can Intense Pulsed Light treat?
Pigment spots and sun damage skin
The overall appearance of aging skin is primarily related to sun exposure with resultant UV damage. IPL minimises or eliminates red and brown spots while improving skin colour and texture.
Dilated veins and capillaries
Over time, ageing, trauma, sun exposure and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of veins and capillaries to dilate. IPL therapy can help eliminate damaged veins and capillaries. A treatment cycle of 4 – 6 treatments spaced two to three weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome
Rosacea is a skin ailment that leaves people red faced with chronic flushing. This is caused by the dilation of capillaries and blood vessels. IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels and redness without injuring the surrounding healthy skin, while greatly reducing the episodes of flushing with long-term effectiveness.
