Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal, photorejuvenation (e.g. the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins) as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases such as acne.
Both women and men can relate to unwanted hair – whether it’s your face, back, feet or toes. But just because it’s there, doesn’t mean it has to be permanent. Causes can simply be genetic, or a result of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
If the unwanted hair is dark, the most effective way to remove it would be to use our IPL treatments. IPL offers a much more permanent solution than simply waxing or shaving. IPL hair removal works by gently pulsing light down the hair shaft, destroying the root itself. It only takes 15 – 30 minutes, with a few follow up sessions in the resulting months to fully eradicate unwanted hair.
Uneven skin texture is common concern for a lot of women. Commonly, it is a result of dead skin cells that build up on the skins surface. Your occupation can play a role in your skin texture, with the exposure to excess dust, chemicals, and sunlight all affecting your skin. Unfortunately, uneven skin texture is a natural result of ageing.
Once we reach our late 30s our body begins a natural hormone fluctuation, which is increased even more during menopause. At Precision Aesthetics, we can help you stay feeling vibrant and refreshed. Our treatments to combat uneven skin texture involve microdermabrasion, collagen induction, and home rolling to help your skin keep up the good fight.
IPL allows practitioners a more advanced and effective way to treat certain types of vascular (vein) and pigmented (skin colour) lesions more safely and effectively. Different light systems may be used to treat a range of different vascular and pigmented problems.
Our IPL procedures offer a range of benefits and advantage to improve your skin tone and treat surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.
