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.

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 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 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)

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.
