IPL Skin Rejuvenation

IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that utilises Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to target and improve the appearance of various skin imperfections. IPL treatments are conducted using a hand-held device that emits high-intensity pulses of light that penetrate the skin, targeting and breaking down pigmentations, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and other signs of aging.

IPL Skin rejuvenation

The procedure works by targeting specific areas of the skin with intense energy, which helps to stimulate collagen production and promote the growth of new tissue. IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a safe and effective treatment that can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the neck, chest, hands, and arms. It is particularly effective in treating sun-damaged skin, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and age spots.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, our team of experienced skincare professionals can tailor the IPL treatment to meet the unique needs of each client. The treatment begins with a thorough consultation and evaluation of the areas to be targeted, followed by a customized treatment plan that includes the application of a specially formulated gel over the treatment area. The handheld device is then used to deliver controlled pulses of light to the skin, with each pulse targeting a specific area to achieve optimal results.

One of the significant advantages of IPL Skin Rejuvenation is that it is virtually painless and does not require any downtime. Most clients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, which can be further managed with the application of a topical anesthetic cream if needed. After the treatment, clients may experience some redness and mild swelling, which usually subsides within a few hours.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment that can safely and effectively improve the appearance of a wide range of skin imperfections. At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we use the latest IPL technology and custom-tailored treatment plans to help our clients achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and redness on the skin. It can also help to reduce and eliminate acne, scars, and blemishes. This non-invasive procedure uses light energy to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin, resulting in a firmer, smoother, and more youthful complexion.

During the treatment, our trained technicians will use a specialized handpiece that emits a series of intense pulses of light. This light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the pigments in the skin cells. This stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. The procedure is non-invasive, which means that there is no need for anesthesia, and you can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.

Laser IPL Skin Rejuvenation can be used on any part of the body that needs rejuvenation or skin improvement. The most common areas that are treated include the face, neck, chest, and hands.

The duration of the treatment usually depends on the size of the area being treated. A typical session lasts around 30-45 minutes.

The number of treatments required for optimal results varies depending on the individual patient and their skin type. Most patients require around 3-6 treatments, spaced four weeks apart, to achieve the best results.

Laser IPL Skin Rejuvenation is considered a safe and effective treatment when performed by a trained and experienced technician. However, there may be some risks and side effects, including redness, swelling, and slight bruising. These are typically mild and resolve within a few days.

After the treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Avoid hot baths or showers and strenuous exercise for the first 48 hours after treatment.

Laser IPL Skin Rejuvenation is safe for most people. However, it may not be suitable for pregnant women, individuals with certain medical conditions, or those taking certain medications. It is always best to consult with your healthcare provider to determine if the treatment is right for you.

The cost of the treatment varies depending on the size of the area being treated and the number of treatments required. Our clinic offers affordable packages, which can be customized to suit your individual needs. Please contact our team for pricing information and to book a consultation.

The results of Laser IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments tend to last for several months to a year. However, continued exposure to UV rays and aging may cause new skin damage, which means that maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the results achieved.

  • Skin redness, tenderness or swelling 48 hours to a week post-treatment
  • Blisters and burns
  • Scabbing (this is typical of brown spots, which rise to the surface of your skin, crust over and gradually flake off)
  • Hyperpigmentation / Hypopigmentation
  • Infection

While burns are rare when you undergo an IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment, they may still happen, and you should remain wary of this. In any case, if you do receive a burn from an IPL Skin Rejuvenation, don’t fret, it will generally go away over time and you should not expect any lasting effects.

However, you should still speak to your provider if you do notice any burn. This can be extremely helpful, especially if you still have more sessions in your treatment plan. Once your skin therapist is aware of the burn, they will give you the best tips on how to manage it, while also ensuring that the settings on the device are more suitable for your skin during the next session

Treatment Care

Before coming in for your IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment at Naomi Waite Aesthetics, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure the best possible results and minimize any potential risks or complications. Here are some pre care tips to follow:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 2 weeks before your treatment. This includes both natural sun exposure and artificial UV rays, as they can increase your risk of skin damage and interfere with the effectiveness of the IPL treatment.
  • Do not use any topical skin products that contain retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), or beta-hydroxy acids (BHA) for at least 1 week prior to your treatment. These ingredients can make your skin more sensitive and increase your risk of side effects, such as redness, swelling, or blistering.
  • If you have a history of cold sores or herpes simplex virus (HSV), inform your provider before your treatment. IPL can trigger outbreaks in some cases, so your provider may recommend taking antiviral medication beforehand.
  • Stop using any prescription medications or supplements that increase your sensitivity to light, such as Accutane (isotretinoin), St. John's Wort, or certain antibiotics. Your provider can advise you on how long to wait before resuming these medications after your treatment.
  • Shave the treatment area the day before your appointment, if necessary. Do not wax, pluck, or use depilatory creams, as these methods can damage the hair follicles and interfere with the effectiveness of the IPL treatment.
  • Avoid using perfumes, lotions, or other cosmetic products on the treatment area on the day of your appointment. This can interfere with the IPL device's ability to detect and target your skin's pigment.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the treatment area. Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing that may rub against your skin or cause irritation after your treatment.
  • Arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin. Your provider will cleanse the treatment area thoroughly before beginning the IPL treatment, but it's best to arrive without any makeup, sunscreen, or other products on your skin.

Following these pre care tips can help ensure a safe and effective IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment at Naomi Waite Aesthetics. If you have any questions or concerns about your treatment, don't hesitate to speak with your provider before or after your appointment.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we want to ensure the best possible outcome for your IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment. Following proper after care instructions will help you achieve optimal results. Here are some important guidelines to follow:

  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight: After IPL skin rejuvenation, it is advisable to avoid direct exposure to sunlight for at least 7-10 days as the skin is more susceptible to sun damage during this time. Therefore, it is recommended to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher while going outdoors. 
  • Avoid hot showers and baths: To prevent skin irritation and discomfort, it is recommended to avoid hot showers and baths for at least 24-48 hours post-treatment. Instead, it is suggested to take lukewarm or cool showers.
  • Moisturize your skin: After IPL skin rejuvenation, the skin may feel dry and flaky; therefore, it is essential to keep the skin moisturized. You can use gentle, fragrance-free moisturizers with nourishing ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin to soothe and hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid makeup: It is recommended to avoid makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment to prevent clogging of the pores and skin irritation.
  • Avoid harsh skincare products: For the first few days following IPL skin rejuvenation, it is recommended to avoid using any harsh skincare products such as exfoliants, retinoids, and acne treatments. These products may cause skin irritation and may reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
  • Be gentle with your skin: For the first few days post-treatment, it is recommended to be gentle with your skin. Avoid rubbing, picking, or scratching the treated area, as this may cause skin irritation, redness, and inflammation.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water after IPL skin rejuvenation helps to keep the skin hydrated, flushes out toxins and enhances the overall healing process.

Following these after care tips will help enhance the effectiveness of IPL skin rejuvenation and prevent any skin irritation or discomfort. It is also recommended to schedule a follow-up appointment with your aesthetician to monitor the progress of the treatment.

Potential Risks

While IPL Skin Rejuvenation is generally safe and well-tolerated, it may cause some risks and side effects, such as:

  • Redness, swelling, and tenderness: These are common and usually resolve within a few hours to a few days after treatment.
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation: IPL Skin Rejuvenation may cause changes in skin color, either darker or lighter than your natural skin tone. This is more common in people with darker skin tones.
  • Burns or blisters: IPL Skin Rejuvenation may cause burns or blisters if the skin is over-treated or the energy level is too high. This is rare but can be prevented by choosing a qualified and experienced aesthetician.
  • Infection: IPL Skin Rejuvenation may cause infection if the skin is not properly cleaned and disinfected before and after treatment. This is rare but can be prevented by following proper hygiene and aftercare instructions.
