IPL, or otherwise known as Intense Pulsed Light, is a skin rejuvenation therapy that helps improve the appearance of the skin using wavelength light technology. IPL is a safe, reliable and highly versatile treatment option that can be used to treat rosacea, age spots, birthmarks, spider veins, freckles, acne, scars and broken blood vessels.
IPL is not to be confused with other Laser-based technologies. IPL uses a broad wavelength light that is emitted into the skin in a series of pulses. This light is used to heat the skin and can help reduce some of the conditions mentioned above. IPL is a very effective option that is very pain-free and can take around 30-60 minutes per treatment.

Lumenis, the inventor of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) has recently released the 6th generation of their Multi-Application IPL platform called the M22 Stellar. It can treat a wide range of skin conditions offering everything you need in one platform. Results achievable have been clinically proven.
The M22 Stellar can treat a wide range of skin conditions. Previously untreatable conditions can now be treated by the M22 Stellar. This is thanks to its industry-leading technology. It has set a new standard for skin rejuvenation.
The M22 Stellar builds on the success of the original M22. The M22 set the then gold-standard. The M22 Stellar has raised the bar and sets a new benchmark for skin treatments and results. The M22 Stellar provides better and quicker patient results than the original M22. The technology has been upgraded and speed and reliability have also improved. Addressing over 30 skin conditions from stretch marks to thread veins, the results speak for themselves.
Usually we say 4-6 weeks between sessions to allow skin to completely rejuvenate. IPL can be combined alongside some other treatments to maximize results.
Very few of our clients find IPL to be painful and even then, it’s usually only minor. Post-treatment, you may experience warm and pink skin (similar to a mild sunburn) but the effects of this should wear down in a matter of hours. Our practitioners will apply a soothing Aloe Vera gel to help reduce this side effect almost immediately.
Just about. IPL can be used nearly on all areas of the body, the only areas we don’t recommend using IPL is uneven areas where it may prove to be less effective. We also recommend that clients who have darker skin tones or thick keloid scars should seek alternate treatment.
IPL should last for a number of years provided that you maintain a sensible skincare regime and regularly protect yourself from excessive sun exposure.
IPL stands for intense pulse light. It is a type of light therapy used to a number of skin conditions.
Before your IPL treatment your practitioner will examine your skin and let you know what to expect. Let them know if you have any skin conditions which could affect healing such as acne or eczema.
