Permanent Hair Removal

Are you fed up of waxing? The intense pulsed light system offers you a long term solution for permanent hair reduction as light Is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle and is destroyed. This treatment is suitable for all areas of the face and body and allows all skin types to be treated, however the best results being clients with a fair skin and dark hair. The required number of treatments varies, however a course of 6 or more is usually needed, 4 to 8 weeks apart. (10% discount on a course of 6 or more treatments is available)

Pigment Removal

The intense pulsed light is able to successfully lighten and remove pigmented lesions such as age or sun spots. These pigmented lesions have a high concentration of melanin and will darken initially before fading away. This is because the light from the IPL machine penetrates and is absorbed by the melanin, and the body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue. This treatment is non-invasive and can treat lesions on the face and body. The number of treatments required depends on the size of the pigmented area but 1 to 3 sessions is typically required at 4-6-week intervals.

Red Vein Removal

IPL can successfully remove thread veins on the face and body. This is achieved as the vascular lesions absorb the light, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Red skin lesions such as facial thread veins, rosacea, port wine stains and spider naevi can be treated with the Intense Pulsed light. Usually 2-4 treatments are needed to achieve the best results, however small lesions may only require one session.

Skin Rejuvenation

This treatment tackles the unwanted signs of ageing; fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and uneven skin texture. The intense Pulsed Light filters light which stimulates the fibroblast cells in the skin to start producing more collagen and elastin. Collagen gives your skin strength, and elastin enables your skin to stretch and bounce back, without these proteins your skin begins to age and become weaker. The skin rejuvenation treatment is designed to help produce a clear and healthy complexion  whilst firming the skin, and reducing pore size. These treatments can be combined with an Image Skincare Peel to enhance results. A course of 6 treatments is often required for collagen remodeling, every 2-4 weeks.

Acne Treatments

The Intense Pulsed Light can effectively treat acne, often in conjunction with our Image Acne peel (A salicylic acid treatment) for best results. The light treatment is able to lessen inflammation and reduce the occurrence of break-outs by directly targeting the active sebaceous glands. Depending on the severity of acne, each client will be consulted and treated individually as a treatment plan is discussed.
