IPL Photo Facial. Also known as Photo Rejuvenation?
The Photo Rejuvenation procedure, also known as a Photo Facial, is a series of intense light pulses (IPL) that are absorbed by abnormally enlarged vessels or pigmentation as they make way through the skin’s surface. The heat of the light pulses weakens the enlarged vessels or lesions which triggers normal healing progression. Lesions can form and will darken before being absorbed by the body or flaking off. This process causes no damage to the skin.
The Photo Rejuvenation Treatment
The area to be treated is prepared by cleansing and applying a water-based gel. We will always patch test you in the area of treatment first to assure that your skin is ok with the treatment. We cool the area first using a cool handpiece. The pulses of light (IPL) are then distributed to the treatment area varying from 15 to 45 minutes. At the completion of the photo facial procedure, the gel is removed from the skin and purified. We cool the area of treatment as we go. A cool compress may be applied to the area after the photo facial to sooth sensitive skin. Daily activities can be resumed immediately following a Photo Facial Procedure, with a few pieces of advice.
Frequency of the Treatment
The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Significant improvements may be seen after 2 to 3 treatments; however, 5 treatments are normally recommended for best possible results. Clients achieve a high level of satisfaction following photo facial procedure recommendations seeing from 70% to 90 % improvement toward more even toned, smoother skin.
Are there side effects from a Photo Rejuvenation Procedure?
Although side effects are rare it is IMPORTANT that prior to a photo facial, exposure to the sun be AVOIDED FOR AT LEAST FOUR weeks before and after treatment. Treatment can affect capillaries making them more visible, pigmentation may appear darker and the skin may look flushed. These side effects would be visible directly following treatment. Temporary swelling and/or blistering may occur but is very rare.
Who should consider the Photo Rejuvenation procedure?
If you are suffering from: Rosacea, Flushing, Age spots, Sun damaged skin, Photo Ageing, Mild acne scars, Large Pores, Dark Circles around the eyes and Fine lines.

Photo Rejuvenation and Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition which causes redness and flushing of the skin.
Common causes of rosacea include: Exposure to the sun, Alcohol consumption, Ageing, Stress and Medication
The Photo Rejuvenation Procedure reduces the flushed appearance of the skin which minimises the necessity for antibiotics and other treatments for redness. For best results a combination of topical skincare and the IPL work best. The IPL stimulates collagen which in time strengthen the skin keeping the redness away from the surface of the skin.
Our photo rejuvenation procedure, also known as a Photo Facial, is a series of intense light pulses that stimulate collagen production and improves the appearance of skin imperfections.
