What is IPL Therapy?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy is a gentle, safe and effective treatment to improve the appearance of many skin irregularities. This advanced light treatment can help to treat rosacea, thread veins, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, sun spots, sagging skin and many common signs of ageing. IPL can provide an incredibly targeted treatment, focusing only on the areas of concern.

IPL uses a range of wavelengths that penetrate just below the skin’s surface where the melanin absorbs the light. This causes damage to the pigment forcing the skin’s natural defenses to come to the rescue. The body instinctively works to remove the damaged melanin and also releases repairing collagen at the same time. These two actions can produce incredible results to the appearance and texture of the treated areas.

IPL Treatment usually takes around 45 minutes. During this time, most clients say they usually experience a mild ‘pinging sensation’ as if being flicked by an elastic band. You can return to your normal daily activities directly after treatment. A patch test is required prior to your first treatment. Whilst improvement can be seen following 1 treatment, a course of 6 sessions is usually recommended for optimum results.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Which areas can be treated with IPL Therapy?

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy can be used to improve skin concerns on the face, chest and hands. The skin on these parts of the body is most often exposed to sun damage – IPL can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots and pigmentation.

IPL Step by Step

1

1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION

Should you decide to proceed with IPL, your first step would be a complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced Treatment Coordinators. During this initial consultation you will have the time to discuss your concerns and explain your desirable results. They will explain the treatment thoroughly, take your full medical history and book you in for a patch test to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.

2

2 BEFORE THE TREATMENT

Your therapist will perform your patch test at least 24 hours before the treatment to ensure you skin doesn’t react to the laser. They will also inform you on all the pre-treatment requirements you need to follow to ensure you are prepared.

3

3 DURING THE TREATMENT

During the IPL Therapy, your Practitioner will cleanse your face to remove make up and impurities. Once your face is properly cleansed they will start the treatment and go across all the areas you wish to treat.

4

4 AFTER THE TREATMENT

Immediately after the treatment you should expect some redness and a feeling of a mild “sunburn” on the treated areas, symptoms that usually subside over the next few hours or within the next 2 days. You could also use make up right after the treatment to cover any unwanted redness.

IPL FAQs

Can I use IPL for hair removal?

IPL technology is also being used for hair removal, however, at EF MEDISPA, we only offer Laser Hair Removal instead of IPL. The reason for that is that IPL uses a wide spectrum of light that penetrates the skin’s surface and is not targeting any specific aspect of the hair, resulting in only some of the wavelengths of light to be reaching the follicles while the rest are reflected away. What Laser Hair Removal does instead is using laser technology to produce a single, concentrated wavelength of light that penetrates deeper into the skin to reach the base of the hair follicle and target the production of melanin.

Is IPL painful?

IPL is a more invasive light treatment that can be slightly uncomfortable, however, most of our clients tolerate the treatment without any need for anaesthetic cream.

Am I a suitable candidate for IPL?

Only after a thorough consultation with our Treatment Coordinator and a patch test, we can then decide whether you would be a suitable candidate for IPL.
