IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a safe and effective way of treating pigmentation in the skin. The light is absorbed by the high concentration of melanin (pigment), the light energy is then converted into heat energy. This heat energy causes a break up of the excess pigment.
Following treatment the pigmentation will eventually flake and fade away leaving a much clearer and brighter complexion. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, decolletage, arms, hands and legs.
How does it feel? : The sensation is similar to an elastic band snapping at the skin followed by warmth, no anaesthetic is needed
Downtime: Small crusts form and usually flake away over the next 2 weeks
Treatment time: 15-30 minutes
Cost: Prices start from £150
Practitioner: Doctor or Aesthetician
