IPL Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Rejuvenation is the process of reversing the signs of aging and restoring your skin to its previous youthful appearance. Here at Onelife Cosmetics we offer a range of rejuvenating treatments to restore your skin to its former glory. The IPL skin rejuvenation treatment is one of our most popular anti-aging treatments due to its gentle nature and the little to no downtime associated with the procedure.
How does IPL work?
IPL reduces the signs of ageing and the damage caused by sun exposure, trauma, illness and other lifestyle factors. The treatment head delivers a specific range of wavelengths to the treatment area. The energy carried by the wavelengths of light penetrates just below the skin’s surface and gets absorbed by melanin in the skin. Melanin is the brown pigment found in hairs, skin and the iris of the eye. It is responsible for both the colour of hair and skin but also causes the tanning of skin when exposed to UV rays in sunlight. The IPL damages the melanin causing the body’s natural repair mechanisms to kick in and remove it. The IPL system regenerates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen over a period of time. This improves the skin's elasticity, texture and can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
What results will I see and when will I see them?
The number of treatments you will need depends on your skin type, your hair type and your desired results. The high energy levels of our laser reduces the number of treatments required to achieve rejuvenation and also makes the process more cost effective when compared to extended treatments that are required by lower energy lasers. We recommend a series of 4 to 6 treatments to see a significant result. Each treatment should be carried out every 3 to 4 weeks. Each treatment lasts 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. Results are visible by the third session.
Is IPL safe for my skin?
When carried out by a trained professional the IPL treatment is very safe. As with all procedures there is a small risk of side effects but these are rare. Side effects can include slight redness and swelling of the treated area, blistering or bruising and hyper or hypopigmentation. Any redness or swelling from the IPL treatment generally disappears within a few hours of treatment, and the remaining side effects are very rare.
