FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT INTENSE PULSED LIGHT IPL SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT

 

 

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR IPL FACIAL REJUVENATION?

Anyone who is looking to improve the look of their skin an overall skin quality is suitable for IPL facial rejuvenation treatment. It is particular suitable if you have pigmentation as the treatment reduces the look of pigmentation caused by sun damage, age or hormonal factors

WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING MY IPL FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENT?

Your skin therapist will assess your skin and discuss your treatment goals. At your first session you will be taken to our specialist treatment room. You will be given dark eye protectors to wear which are designed to ensure the light from the IPL does not penetrate your eye to ensure your safety. Cool gel will then by applied to your face and treatment starts. You can expect to feel warmth from the IPL light. If you have opted to include radiofrequency skin lifting within your treatment, you will feel slightly more heat in circular movements which is similar to a hot stone massage.

 

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL AND RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT

The light passes through the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and penetrates deeper into the dermis where the pulsed light energy stimulates the cells. These cells, called fibroblasts, once stimulated start to produce fresh collagen. Collagen smooths and softens the appearance of wrinkles and tightens pores leading to rejuvenated skin

Radtiofrequency skin tightening is a clinical technique where radiofrequency (RF) energy is used to heat the skin tissue which stimulates collagen and elastin production which reduces the appearance of fine lines, improves skin texture and tightens loose skin. We have both unipolar and bipolar radiofrequency. Unipolar radiofrequency is stronger and provides results more rapidly. 

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED TO SEE RESULTS?

Most clients see an immediate improvement (around 20-30% of the full result) but it takes around 3 weeks for new collagen to be produced by the body so your treatment will continue to improve over time resulting in a younger-looking, fresher, plumped skin.

IS IPL SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT PAINFUL?

No the treatment is not painful, you will feel gentle heat on the skin.

DO YOU OFFER TREATMENT COURSES FOR IPL OR SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT?

We offer treatment packages which include additional complimentary services.

AM I ABLE TO GO THE GYM AFTER MY IPL SKIN TIGHTENING SESSION?

As with any aesthetic treatment, strenuous exercise should be avoided before your treatment and for 48 hours after treatment.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO SEE RESULTS FROM MY IPL SKIN TIGHTENING SESSION

You will notice an immediate tightening and rejuvenating effect from your first treatment but results improve over time and we recommend a course of 3 treatments for best results.

 

IS IPL SKIN TIGHTENING MORE EFFECTIVE FOR 40, 50 OR 60 YEAR OLD

IPL skin tightening is effective as soon as you notice the signs of aging. Collagen stimulation takes longer as we age, so if you are older you may require more sessions but the treatment will still be effective. Dependant on the level of skin lifting needed, it may be that a HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift may be a more suitable treatment.
