DIAMOND PHOTO REJUVENATION FACIAL
What is Photo Rejuvenation?
IPL Photo Rejuvenation uses light energy to penetrate the skin, effectively reducing both red and brown pigments. We use longer wave lengths of light to stimulate new collagen formation so that the face becomes more luminous rather than dull and spotted.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation provides improvement in the overall quality and tone of the face, resulting in the appearance of more youthful and even toned skin with a vibrant healthy glow.
What does the treatment involve?
The treatment includes an Express Microdermabrasion followed by IPL Photo Rejuvenation. During an IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatment a cool gel is applied to the skin and you will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes. A hand piece is placed on your skin and pulses of light are emitted to treat the skins imperfections. The firing of the IPL during a Rejuvenation treatment is very comfortable and will feel just slightly warm on the skin. Treatment time takes 10-20mins depending on the area being treated. Immediately after the treatment the skin may appear slightly flushed.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required varies from person to person depending upon the condition of your skin. Normally, you will need three to six treatments at intervals of two to four weeks.
How long will the results last?
A permanent increase in collagen and elastin is achieved from each treatment of IPL Rejuvenation, however as our skin is continually ageing, maintenance treatment sessions every six months are recommended.
