How It Works:
By using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light we can gently heat and eliminate imperfections, replacing them with fresh, younger looking skin.
What to Expect:
During the procedure you can expect to feel a little degree of discomfort, depending on the pain threshold of the individual.
Most people explain the procedure as a gentle heat snapping on the skin. A topical anesthetic is available if you experience any discomfort.
After the procedure you may experience some reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes within 24 hours. You can resume your normal activities as usual but you should be aware to avoid exposing the treated area to the sun, solarium and fake tans between treatments and also 4 weeks prior to your first treatment.
You can apply makeup but we recommend a mineral based makeup, this will avoid any irritations that can occur with some makeup
IPL Treatment Using Photo Rejuvenation
As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. IPL treatments can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
IPL treatment improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photorejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows

IPL Hair Removal
What is IPL Hair Removal?
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light”. It is a light therapy and not a traditional laser therapy. It is different to laser in that it uses a spectrum of multiple wavelengths of light energy and thus can target, heat destroy, and stimulate a number of different skin structures and hair follicles at the same time.
Where can IPL Hair Removal be used?
All areas of the face and body can be treated with IPL. It is fantastic for both men and women. All skin types and hair colours can be treated using IPL but the lighter the skin colour and the darker the hair colour, the more permanent hair follicle destruction is possible. This is because IPL targets melanin pigment deep down in the base of the hair follicle, more than just the hair shaft. The darker the hair root, the more melanin is there, meaning that more heat-thermal energy is delivered by the IPL, resulting in permanent destruction.
How Many IPL Treatments are required?
There are three phases of hair growth, and it is during the active growing phase that there is enough melanin in the hair bulb to permanently destroy the hair follicle. Therefore, only about a third of the hair follicles are ever in the active growing phase at any one time and thus able to be targeted by IPL. This is why multiple treatments are required. A minimum of four to six treatments are required. Darker skin colour and lighter coloured hair will require more treatments, as there is less melanin in the hair roots and the machine cannot be operated at full capacity. Having said that, long term hair reduction or removal is available for everyone.
Is the Hair Removal Permanent?
Be aware that there is no such thing as completely permanent hair removal with any type of hair removal treatment for most people. However, the IPL Quantum offers the most advanced and permanent reduction of hair growth of all the treatments currently on the market as Lumenis invented IPL. It is great at permanently destroying most of the targeted hair follicles.
Most people will get effective hair reduction with each treatment, with very little regrowth after the course of treatments is done. Some will get complete hair reduction with no regrowth, while others will require a yearly maintenance treatment. Any regrowth of hair will be weak, thin, and lighter in colour, due to the damaged hair follicles.
Possible Side Effects of IPL Hair Removal
It is normal to experience some redness of the skin and some very mild swelling. This is not burning or blistering and should not cause alarm. In some cases, the redness may last for a few days and there could be some scabbing which subsides over a short time. Most clients will tolerate IPL with minimal discomfort, but on sensitive areas and for people with low pain threshold an ice pack can be applied. Most people can immediately return to normal activities.
