What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin Rejuvenation also know as (FlashLamp, Limelight and Photo Facial) treatments are a non invasive skin procedure using an intense pulse light machine. IPL can treat many skin conditions simultaneously, including:
- broken veins and capillaries
- redness of the skin
- age spots and pigmentation
- smooth out and increase new life to wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin production within the skin.
How does Skin Rejuvenation work?
IPL Skin Rejuvenation works by directing safe, controlled pulses of light energy into the upper layers of the skin. The light is then absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin (colour) in the pigmented areas such as sun spots, liver spots and uneven colour and haemoglobin in the red blood cells. This energy warms the skin which also helps to stimulate the skins natural healing and restoring functions allowing your skin to remodel and repair itself.
How many Skin Rejuvenation Treatments will I need?
Ideal results are obtained by undergoing a series of IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatments. This may be between 3 – 6 Photo facial treatments, depending upon the skins condition. Rejuvenation Treatments are recommended 3-4 weeks apart for optimal results.
After the initial series of photofacial treatments most of the improvements are permanent, however in order to maintain the results some future maintenance is required and this varies from person to person.
How long does an IPL Skin Treatment take and what is involved?
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
- Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and then gently exfoliated (if needed).
- A cool gel is applied to the area to be treated
- The smooth glass surface of the IPL Skin Rejuevnation handpiece is then gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied.
- After the IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment is performed we will recleanse your skin to remove any excess gel and apply the appropriate products that contain soothing and calming ingredients and also a SPF sunscreen protection.

• Topical fake tans
• Prescription strength exfoliants (Vitamin A creams)

• Solariums (cover all areas being treated)
Please avoid the following activities until the redness (if any) has calmed down.

• Swimming pools and spas with multiple chemicals/ chlorine. (24 hours)
• Activities that cause excessive perspiration. (24 hours)
• Hot showers (24 hours)
Is there any downtime when having IPL Skin Treatments?
Photo Rejuvenation is generally a very safe ‘no downtime’ procedure.
There are some mild side effects that can occur and these generally are associated with darker skin types and excessive sun exposure. However the worse your skin is to start with the more chance of redness ocurring which is completely normal.
You will notice a darkening of pigmentation spots which can increase in pigment over the following 24 hours which then can take anywhere from 5-14 days to gently fall away. This darkening can usally be covered with makeup. As you have treatments you will notice less dark spots as pigmentation is flushed out of your skin.
Other rare reactions will be discussed with your skin practitioner during your initial IPL skin consultation.
Home care to complement IPL skin Rejuvenation
A skincare routine that compliments the photo rejuvenation treatment should be added into your daily routine. It is highly recommended to commence the use of professionally prescribed skincare that has high levels of vitamin A, C, hylauronic acid and other potent antioxidants.
A SPF 50+ protective cream must be worn daily and reapplied as needed when having IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatments.
