What is intense pulsed light (IPL)?
Photorejuvenation (sometimes called Photofacials) technology is a non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of aging skin and gives it a more youthful look.
Since it treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, there is no recovery time and patients can return to regular activities immediately after rejuvenation treatment (sometimes a little makeup is required). In addition to treating the face, the neck, chest and hands are commonly treated as well.

How does IPL work?
IPL antiaging treatment consists of a very bright, controlled light that is absorbed by various components of the skin. The colours in the light are attracted to the red and brown discolouration in the skin and by the collagen tissue. The body’s healing mechanism takes over and absorbs the reds, sloughs the browns and stimulates the production of new collagen.
What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless skin condition whereby patches of the skin darken in color more so than the surrounding skin. Darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.
How Is HyperPigmentation Treated?
IPLis used to treat the skin. The light flashes create energy then penetrates below the skin’s surface, where the unwanted brown pigment (melanin) lives. The heat breaks down this pigment into tiny particles, which either rise to the skin’s surface as scabs (naturally sloughing away within a week or so), or get carried away by the body’s lymphatic system.
