What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light is a non invasive approach to treating benign hyper pigmentation, vascular lesions, permanent hair reduction, destroying the P acne bacteria which is responsible for acne, and promoting more collagen beneath the skins surface - skin rejuvenation. IPL uses technology where light is converted into heat energy.  Treatments are like a camera flash lamp being held against your skin.  The selected light waves target chromophores (colour pigments) such as melanin in brown spots and freckles.  The light waves can also target specific protein molecules in acne bacteria and in collagen.  IPL treats these conditions without disruption to the skin’s surface.  Skin Rejuvenation is also known as photo-rejuvenation – the non-invasive, non surgical face lift.  The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.

What is the difference between IPL and laser

Lasers have been used in surgery for years.  The IPL is an adaptation of the laser, more suited to the beauty industry.  The biggest difference between laser and IPL, as far as treatment is concerned, is the coverage.   The laser beam is very narrow, only covering a small spot at a time, therefore treatments are much quicker.  Intense pulsed light is able to treat different levels of your skin, rather than that of a laser, which treats at just one exact depth. This is extremely useful and more effective as your hair bulbs all lie at different depths of your skin.

What changes will occur?

  • Pigmentation marks slowly come to the skin’s surface and are shed naturally.

  • Enlarged pores, minor pitting and scarring diminish and fade.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles are softened and may virtually disappear.

  • Collagen & elastin production increases.

At Beautiloco as a guideline, we  recommend a course of 3 - 6 treatments, four weeks apart, for greater results (except for the IPL Acne Treatment which is fortnightly). Package deals available.
