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.
