IPL can be used to target a number of skin concerns, however, we only use this device for the following as we have other devices which work better for other conditions:
• SHR (Super Hair Removal) – Although we have a laser machine, SHR is great for those who are wanting large areas done such as full legs or back. The treatment is much faster than laser and just as effective. SHR is also great for those who do not tolerate pain well as this treatment is pain free and you will just feel a warm heating of the skin.
• Vascular & Rosacea – Vascular conditions such as red veins can be treated quickly with IPL, flushing from Rosacea can also be managed and reduced.
• Acne Management – Active acne can be quite hard to treat. Often having active acne rules a lot of treatments out, which is why IPL is a great choice. The IPL helps kill bacteria in the skin causing lesions to heal and it also has a healing effect on the overall skin, so it will reduce acne scarring.
• Rejuvenation – There’s nothing quite like IPL for rejuvenation. With minimal downtime, this treatment is fantastic for anyone who wants full face rejuvenation without the price tag of expensive laser treatments and the downtime associated with them.
