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.

Will it hurt?

This treatment will produce a warming sensation, under the skin. Although some patients find this feeling a little uncomfortable, they do not report the treatment as being ‘painful’. The practitioners at Light Touch Clinic can use techniques within the procedure to help with cooling the skin, if the patient feels this would be necessary.

What can I expect after treatment?

A smoother, more even tone to the skin can be achieved through a series of treatments ranging from 1 – 5 sessions, depending on your individual concerns and desired results. The appearance can look younger, brighter and clearer for a considerable amount of time. The condition of your skin will be analysed at a pre-treatment consultation upon which your practitioner can recommend the right treatment variation and advise how long the results are likely to last.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Mild swelling and bruising is often seen in patients, following this treatment and will usually ease within 12 – 24 hours. It is common for the skin on the treated area to become darker for up to 1 week, which will return to your normal tone, after this time. However, as your treatment course progresses, this period of skin discolouration will get shorter.

Friends of Light Touch

Clean and beautifully decorated clinic and received a warm welcome. I had my first laser session last weekend following my consultation with Klaudia, who was very friendly and thorough. I have sensitive skin and the laser treatment was absolutely fine on my skin. They have customer parking behind the clinic. Would definitely recommend.

Lucy

As always Natalie was kind and considerate whilst carrying out my treatments.

Had an amazing experience at this clinic! Dr. Natalie is amazing and put me completely at ease. I have a fear of needles, but my treatment was painless and easy. I've suffered from horrible eye-bags and hollows my entire life and now my eyes look rested and refreshed! The staff is super friendly as well.

I visited this clinic on a recommendation and I am so pleased. All the staff were really lovely. I had an anti-wrinkle treatment with Natalie (who is brilliant) and I am so pleased with the result. The whole process from start to finish, cannot be faulted and the end result is really natural. I recommend to anyone to visit them.
