IPL is a light based therapy that works by targeting structures within the skin (such as melanin) with wavelengths of light, which break down the structure and improve the appearance of the skin. The light pulses also stimulate collagen production which floods to the area, plumping the skin and giving a more youthful appearance.
IPL(Intense Pulsed Light) by Skinbase is an alternative hair removal method, targeting and affecting the hair at the follicle .
IPL can only be effective on dark hairs, hence the need to stay out of the sun for several weeks before treatments.
Thread veins are often seen on the face, especially cheeks and nose. They can be caused by excessive exposure to UV radiation but some people are simply more susceptible to them and they can be present from childhood. Facial telangiectasias usually respond well to IPL treatment.
IPL therapy treat thread veins by emitting wavelengths of light that are filtered to target the haemaglobin in the thread veins/broken capillaries. The treatment causes the vein to gradually breakdown over a number of days until it has disappeared.
How many treatments will I need?
Only 1 or 2 treatments are required at 2-3 week intervals.
IPL is a revolutionising acne treatment. Our system has FDA clearance and is proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of acne.
The IPL system releases yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. This destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause inflammation, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause the outbreak of pustules. The light also stimulates collagen production in the area helping to improve the appearance of acne scarring.
