Wind back sun damage with IPL Skin Rejuvenation
20 Jan, 2016
With the return of summer, we once again find ourselves having to take extra care to protect ourselves from the powerful Australian sun.
While you may be familiar with the danger of ultraviolet (UV) rays in terms of sunburn and skin cancer, what you may not have realised is the impact sun exposure can have on the appearance of your skin.
The time you spend basking in the sun over the years can take its toll in the form of photoageing - a process that leads to fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and changes in skin texture and elasticity.
In fact, UV rays are estimated to be responsible for up to 80 per cent of all signs of clinical ageing, making it crucial to be smart in the sun. If your sunbathing past has come back to haunt you, intensive pulsed light (IPL) therapy can help to restore your skin to its youthful best.
How does IPL for skin rejuvenation work?
IPL skin rejuvenation is one of the safest treatments available, capable of addressing skinconcerns from sun damage and facial redness, to broken veins, freckles and pigmentation. Non-invasive, it involves a broad wavelength light being pulsed into the skin to repair damaged tissue.
By stimulating collagen production, IPL can help to restore the plumpness and elasticity of your skin, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as pores. In addition, IPL can be used on your full face, as well as your neck, chest, arms and hands for a more even result.
Also known as photo rejuvenation, IPL rejuvenation is less abrasive than other treatments such as lasers, bleaching and peels. This allows your skin therapist to zone in on more pigmented areas and stubborn spots, while leaving other areas untouched.
What results can I expect from IPL skin rejuvenation?
Ideal for people who care about the appearance of their skin but lead busy lifestyles, IPL is a time-efficient solution to correct the effects of photoageing without the downtime. Noticeable improvements can be observed approximately 10 days after your first session, with the results further enhanced with each treatment that follows.
IPL therapy can also help to give your skin a fresher, more youthful appearance by evening out your skin's colour, as well as smoothing and brightening it from within.
