Say Good-Bye to Pigmentation!
We're very lucky to live in beautiful Queensland with its perfect weather and pristine beaches. Unfortunately, too much time in the sun can lead to uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy can help to greatly reduce the appearance of pigmentation on your face and body. Read on and we'll take you through the process of IPL Photorejuvenation.
Step 1: Consultation and Test Patch
It's important to have a look at the pigmentation to determine whether IPL photo- rejuvenation will achieve a good result. Pigmentation can not only be caused by the sun but also hormones. Hormonal pigmentation may occur during pregnancy, teenage years and people on oral contraceptives and may worsen with IPL treatments (IPL is not suitable for pregnant women). Pigmentation caused by sun damage should respond well to IPL treatments. Our highly trained beauty therapists will examine your skin using our Dermograph technology which takes photos of the different layers of your skin. If it's believed that the pigmentation will respond to IPL photo rejuvenation, a test patch will be conducted. This is an important step to ensure there are no skin reactions and to determine the right setting for your skin type.
