IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Uneven skin tone can often develop as a person gets older, leaving some areas of skin discolouration and visible broken blood vessels (thread veins). The amount of sun and its UV rays that the face and hands have been exposed to over the years impacts on the biological structure of the skin, as well as contributing to the rate at which ageing can develop. IPL can help to refresh the appearance by reducing the pigmented cells within the skin, for a more even tone.

At Light Touch Clinic, we use an IPL machine by one of the UK’s leading brands – Lynton Lasers. The device is placed on the surface of the skin and delivers intense pulses of light to generate heat and destroy the pigmented cells. 3 different variations of this rejuvenating treatment are available:

EXCELIGHT IPL vascular lesions and rosacea targets vascular concerns to improve the appearance of broken red veins, thread veins, rosacea, poikiloderma of civatte (red/brown discolouration on the side of the neck) and port wine stains.

EXCELIGHT IPL pigmentation targets the conditions that cause skin discolouration, such as freckles and age spots (also known as sun spots).

EXCELIGHT IPL rejuvenation helps to even the tone and texture of the skin, as well as boosting the production of collagen. Fully rejuvenating the skin’s health helps to produce smooth soft skin, smaller pores, an even tone and softer lines and wrinkles.

A popular procedure at Light Touch clinic, this treatment is often carried out in a series of sessions in order to produce great results, according to the patient’s individual conditions and expected outcome. As this treatment is designed to target the darker colouring of pigmented cells, it is ideal for the Autumn and Winter months, when any Summer tanning has faded.
