IPL Skin Rejuvenation – Pigment Lesion – Acne Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems release precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin deep within the dermis, increasing skin elasticity and strength, making the skin look softer and smoother.

In addition, specific lesions such as thread veins, age spots and freckles can be targeted resulting in a more uniform complexion. The skin becomes firmer, appears more radiant and enlarged pores are reduced.

Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and over exposure to the sun or sunbeds. From the age of around 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance.

Freckling and age spots are successfully lightened or removed with either Laser or Intense Pulse Light (IPL).

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation and pigment removal treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Age spots and freckles can be lightened or removed in as little as one to three treatment sessions. The light targets areas of excess pigment safely breaking down the excess melanin.

The sun spots or freckles darken in the first few days after treatment and then the excess melanin sheds naturally away.

The Lynton Luminette Intense Pulsed Light system is used to progressively improve the skin tone and texture in the following ways:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production, deep within the dermis, increasing skin elasticity and strength.
  • Reduces pigmentation problems, giving skin a more even colour.
  • Reduces fine thread veins, thereby reducing general skin redness (known as Rosacea).
  • IPL treatment kills the bacteria that causes infection and the formation of spots.

Acne Treatment And Skin Rejuvenation

For maximum Skin Rejuvenation/Acne reduction results we recommend alternating IPL treatment with Glycolic Peels or Microdermabrasion. This will dislodge the debris of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin allowing the laser/IPL light to penetrate further.
