Intense Pulsed Light treatment is a safe, effective and non-invasive solution for many aesthetic issues; at the London Cosmetic Skin Clinic we use the Ellipse NORDLYS IPL system for a wide range of treatments including skin rejuvenation.
Too much UV exposure can cause hyperpigmentation, freckles and age spots, which can make skin appear older than it is. IPL treatment helps reduce the appearance of these by creating a thermal reaction in the skin; this cauterises broken veins which cause redness and break down the excess melanin that cause age spots and freckles.
The other rejuvenating effect of the Ellipse IPL system is that it encourages the skin to produce collagen. Collagen gives skin its bounce and elasticity but as we age collagen production slows down leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Depending on the condition of your skin you will probably need 6 sessions each spaced 4 weeks apart. We advise that you avoid sun beds and fake tan prior to your sessions; not only will you get better results when there is more of a colour contrast between your skin and imperfections on it, you will avoid further UV damage.
IPL skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive, chemical-free way of turning back the clock, fading hyperpigmentation and encouraging the skin to heal itself. To find out more about our IPL treatments, contact us today to speak to a member of our team
