What is IPL Photo Rejuvenation?

IPL photo rejuvenation also known as intense pulse light treatment has been used to treat skin pigmentation and stimulate collagen production for many years. While there are newer treatments that can also stimulate skin rejuvenation now, IPL is still one of the best treatments to remove unwanted skin pigmentation, broken capillaries and blemishes for a clear consistent complexion and improve collagen all at the same time. This is why we have invested in recent IPL technology by Etherea for safe and excellent results.

Ipl produces multiple wavelengths of light that is not as focused as laser and can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions sometimes more effectively than laser. Red and brown pigmentation in the skin can be targeted by intense pulse light where it will be intentionally damaged resulting in its removal by the body. This process helps remove redness, skin discoloration and age spots.

Reverse damage caused by the sun with specific wavelengths of light generated by Etherea superior IPL technology.

These wavelengths are adjusted by the therapist to address various concerns of the skin.

IPL treatments are suitable for the face, décolletage, hands, arms or anywhere where sun damage or pigmentation are present to even out skin tone and colour, promoting and more youthful fresh appearance.

Other skin and vein concerns.

IPL can also be used to treat small vascular issues close to surface of the skin such as broken capillaries in the nose and face, spider veins on the body and also skin irregularities such as age spots/sun spots and cherry moles.
This modality can treat a wide array of skin blemishes quickly and efficiently in the hands of an experienced technician.

Broken capillaries for example on the nose can be treated in only a few sessions with immediate and long-lasting eradication. Age spots on the hands can be improved dramatically with only a couple of treatments.

When treating spider veins, intense light emitted from the handpiece being a form of heat energy is attracted to the haemoglobin within the vein, subsequently causing damage to the structural lining of the vein wall. These veins die off and are absorbed by the body as dead tissue. The blood which was normally traveling through these veins is redirected deeper within the skin, the treated veins are no longer visible.

Cherry moles are treated in a very similar fashion and are removed in the same process.

Sunspots also known as age spots can be removed just as we treat skin pigmentation. Slightly different methods may be employed when targeting these specific areas of hyperpigmentation. It is very important that these skin lesions are checked by a skin doctor first to screen for possible Melanoma before treatment can be considered.

Frequently asked questions

  • How does IPL work?

    IPL uses multiple wavelengths of light that are adjusted by the laser therapist with the use of filtration for the specific indication or skin issue. This is quite different to laser technology where it utilises a steady beam of light that is usually focused and of a single wavelength. IPL emits a much broader scattered flash of light energy into the skin where it can penetrate to the dermis; being the second layer of the skin.

    Darker pigmentation can then be targeted by the appropriate wavelength of light and heat, damaging it sufficiently so that the body’s natural processes will conveniently remove it.

    A similar process occurs when we are targeting spider veins or broken capillaries.

  • What happens during a treatment?

    After your initial consultation, depending on what type of treatment is being performed, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to the area being treated for 30-40 minutes prior to the IPL session. Once this time has elapsed, protective eye wear is placed over the eyes and treatment will begin. A cooling gel will be applied to the skin and the handpiece of the IPL device will be placed on the skin and gradually moved as flashes of light are released by the operator. The sensation felt by these light flashes is often described as a light rubber band snapping against the skin.

    Sometimes the use of cooling packs are used during and or post treatment to remove any excess heat from the skin. This is generally always done when treating pigmentation.

  • What is IPL suitable for?

    IPL photo rejuvenation can treat a number of skin concerns. We mainly suggest the treatment for hyperpigmentation, evening out skin tone, minor skin blemishes, age spots, general sun damage, broken capillaries and spider veins. IPL can also be used a general skin rejuvenation treatment to boost skin collagen production, however, we tend to use laser genesis for this in recent times.

  • Are all IPL machines the same?

    The short answer to this is as for most equipment we use, definitely not. IPL has been around for some time now and consequently many machines have been released to the market place since 2000. The quality and design has evolved substantially over the years and we have had experience with a number of machines since 2004.
    One of our main concerns with some IPL equipment is its ability to deliver the same output of light and heat every shot every time day in day out.

    Etherea IPL equipment produces an exact metered pulse of light and energy every time for consistent and safe performance. Not all IPL machines on the market are capable of this for the duration of the life of the flash bulb as it ages. This is very important to safeguard against fluctuations in heat energy delivered to the skin.

    The power that some machines display as being delivered is not always the same as what is actually being emitted from the handpiece. With the Etherea IPL device this is correct each and every time. For this reason we chose the Etherea.

    With reliable equipment like the Etherea, the laser therapist using the machine can get to know that machine and what it will do very well. Getting to know a machine can take time and experience and this is very important when using IPL equipment.

  • What should I expect post treatment?

    Your skin will feel warm and areas with pigmentation will turn dark almost immediately following treatment. Over the following week or more, these areas will gradually be absorbed by the body and the very top layers may flake off. It is important to be patient and allow the body to perform its individual process of removal once the stimulus from the IPL has taken effect. Post treatment advice will be provided. It is important to avoid sun exposure for at least a month post treatment.

    It is also important to remember that future sun exposure to the areas we treat may cause the pigmentation issue to arise again, as this may have been the initial cause before treatment.

  • Our experience.

    Our clinic has been open since 2004 and we have used IPL technology during that initial time for hair reduction and photo rejuvenation. Laser technology is of course used now for hair reduction, however, IPL retains its excellent efficacy for photo rejuvenation.

    Our senior therapist Peter Laburn has been using various IPL equipment since that time and has acquired lengthy experience with treating the relevant skin concerns with this modality. Experience is essential when using IPL equipment for effective and safe results.

  • Do we use a topical anesthetic?

    Most people will require a topical anesthetic cream applied 30 minutes to one hour prior to treatment for the IPL treatment to be comfortable. When you arrive there will be a short consultation with you and your treating therapist and a doctor to prescribe the particular compounded topical anaesthetic we use which is designed to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

    This consultation has a charge of $70.00 and is valid for 12 months. Subsequent Fractional laser treatments can use this authority during those 12 months, so the fee is only charged once in that period.

    If we are just treating a small area, topical anesthetic may not be required. We will advise if it is needed during your consultation with us.
