Frequently asked questions
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required varies from client to client and is dependent on many factors. Results can be seen after just a few treatments. However, a minimum of 6 and up to 12 treatments, are recommended to deliver the best results.
What does the treatment feel like?
Treatment sensation varies with most clients describing it as moderate and acceptable, not unlike a quick pinprick. You may will also experience a warm sensation.
Who is suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment. During your consultation with your therapist we can ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not recommended for treatment.
How does light-assisted skin rejuvenation work?
Pulses of light are emitted to target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, the light energy stimulates the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Can IPL treat my acne?
Light emitted directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions. This lessens inflammation and frequency of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, scarring and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.
