Intense Pulsed Light Rejuvenation Treatment

Client Information

Treatment Plan

  • Luxxe IPL & Skin Clinic is able to offer an anti-aging treatment which will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the production of collagen in the skin. Fine lines and wrinkles may soften. Also general diffuse redness can be reduced.

  • Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition, especially if they combine treatment with Vitamin A, C, E and anti-oxidant skin care and supplements.

  • Often at least 4 sessions are needed in an area to obtain optimal results.

  • Treatments should be approximately 4 weeks apart.

Sun Issues

  • Although the treatment works by using wave lengths of light that are attracted to oxyhaemoglobin [found in blood], Intense Pulsed Light is also attracted to melanin, the pigment [colour] found in hair and skin.

  • Some skins may be too dark for safe treatment, as the light can be attracted to the melanin in the skin and cause hyper or hypo pigmentation. [ increase or loss of colour in the skin.]

  • A recent tan is also a potential problem as the light will be attracted to the melanin in the skin surrounding the vascular condition, causing hyper or hypo pigmentation. We recommend you avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for at least 6 weeks pre and post treatment. At all other times use a 30+ sun block.

  • Sun beds need to be avoided in the same way as sun.

  • Spray on and instant tan products are pigments. The skin should be clean of any such products before each treatment.

  • A 30+ sun block should be applied to treatment area if there is any likelihood of sun exposure, however strong the sun and whatever time of the year.
