Chronic sun exposure in New Zealand is a major contributing factor to your skin looking and feeling tired, with consequent pigmentation, redness, brown age spots, burst capillaries & fine lines. You don’t have to hide these skin imperfections. Intense Pulse Light – IPL Skin Rejuvenation or Photorejuvenation is the latest non-surgical treatment to reduce pigmentation and redness.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is one of the least invasive and the most effective cosmetic treatments for uneven skin tone, poor skin texture and acne.
We use the latest technology from Venus Versa for IPL Skin Rejuvenation to give you clearer, brighter skin with a more even complexion.
Intense Pulsed Light [IPL] technology is one technique that is now widely used in the field of dermatology. It involves the use of a broad controlled spectrum of light that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-ageing, pigmentation, freckles, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. Photo rejuvenation is an IPL treatment process that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction.
IPL is a non-invasive and non-ablative procedure, which doesn’t require anaesthesia or sedation. It is non-ablative since the broad spectrum of light penetrates the deeper layer of the skin without harming or injuring the upper layer or the epidermis.
IPL therefore has minima risk and most times you can return to normal activities right after. For this reason, it is often dubbed as a lunchtime procedure.
The light from the IPL is of a specific range in wave length which targets pigment in the skin either melanin ( in the pigmented areas) or haemoglobin ( in the veins) which destroys the damaged areas resulting in clearer skin.

No matter how healthy and young you feel, skin imperfections ( especially on your face) or abnormalities can detract from your well being. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. There is a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation which is visible after a series of treatment. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms and hands for the treatment of.
Skin texture, ageing skin, chest wrinkles ,facial wrinkles , neck wrinkles and fine wrinkles can also be treated with a series of treatment.
You will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. A gel is applied to your treatment area. The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand-piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied.
You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. An anaesthetic cream may be used, but is seldom required.
Flushing and redness (similar to what you will see after a good exercise workout) will last from a few minutes to several hours after treatment. You may experience some swelling and the brown age spots and uneven pigmentation will turn slightly darker after treatment.
Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about twenty to thirty minutes.
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your daily activities.
By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk – and, it preserves the wonderful “no down time” feature that people appreciate so much.
IPL is not laser and vice versa, although the term laser is often used generically. Both IPL and laser therapy use light that is converted into heat energy to destroy cells that produce melanin or broken capillaries that lead to the appearance of pigment and red veins respectively.
The major difference between the two is the type of light they emit. Laser provides a single band of light colour (monochromatic) to target a specific area and condition. IPL, on the other hand, provides a broad spectrum of light (polychromatic), which covers a bigger area and produce different wavelengths. In other words, laser has a more targeted approach. Although both provide high intensity, IPL can be more controlled and therefore less likely to be painful than laser.
