About Intense Pulse Light (IPL) 

IPL (intense Pulse Light) is a treatment which delivers the cosmetic benefits of light technology and is suitable for the face and body, helping to give you an even skin tone and younger looking skin. 
 

Photorejuvenation

Photo aging results from exposure to UV rays (such as those from the sun) which break down the collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis layer. Photo aging causes the skin to wrinkle and sag. Fine lines appear around the eyes and mouth and the skin ’s texture roughens. Overall the skin begins to lose elasticity as fat cells and moisture stores decline. Other signs begin to appear including spider veins, abnormal pigmentation, age spots and enlarged pores. 
IPL Photorejuvenation is the latest generation in light-based technology. It is an innovative way to quickly, safely, and comfortably remove sun and age spots from your face, chest, arms and hands as well as treatment to diffuse background redness and rosacea. 
 

 

Anti Aging treatments for face and neck

IPL anti-aging treatments use a bright flash of visible light, like the light of a camera flash to remove pigment and blood vessels non-surgically from the skin. This pulsed or flashed light is very different from a laser and in most instances, less powerful and less dangerous that laser light. 
 

How Do Photofacial or Intense Pulsed Light Non-surgical anti-aging Skin Care Treatments Work ? 

Numerous laser and light sources are used for non-ablative photorejuvenation. Each different wavelength selectively reaches a preferential target within the skin structure acting at a specific depth in the skin. The aim is to achieve vascular and pigmentary normalisation, and the stimulation of neocollagenasis. The correct laser or light source must be selected to adapt the treatment to the needs of each patient. 
 
Non-ablative photorejuvenation is a beneficial, non-invasive solution for improving the appearance, colour and texture of the skin without lengthy post-op recovery periods, and without compromising work and social activities. 
 
Non-ablative fractional photorejuvenation uses laser sources that penetrate the skin in depth without vaporising part of it. The advantage of such sources is that they do not produce any partial or total removal of the epidermis, the laser generates targeted and controlled denaturation of the tissue on deep columns, separate and above all surrounded by intact tissue. Light is absorbed by water in the cells. The water heats up and causes a mild thermal reaction that activates fibroblasts. The result is the creation of new collagen and elastin fibre cells within connective tissues of the dermis. The overall effect of this mild skin "injury" creates an improvement in skin texture and smoothing of fine lines. 
 
IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments help to stimulate the fibroblast cells in the skin that produce collagen and elastin. This will improve the radiancy and tightness of your skin and you will look younger and your skin will feel smoother. A reference point for the international medical-cosmetic community, DEKA is a source of constant innovation, such as the invention of the long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, now one of the most widely used in dermatology. The last generation workstations allow for combined use of a variety of laser sources, pulsed lights and handpieces with intelligent recognition, for selectively and effectively reaching any target at any depth of the skin and epidermis. 
 

Applications:

• Pigmentation, Rosacea, fine lines, redness of the face and neck, freckles, blotchy skin colour, dark spots enlarged pores, broken capillaries, hair removal and uneven skin texture.
 
A series of 5 to 6 IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatments is usually required scheduled approximately 3 to 4 weeks apart. A follow up treatment is generally recommended every 6 months, this guarantees optimum results. After treatments skin will appear radiant, refreshed and will show improved tone and texture, with a significant reduction of small red blood vessels and irregular areas of pigmentation.
