IPL Photorejuvenation

Perfect Skin Tone

IPL is traditionally known as a depigmentation treatment for the removal of age spots and sun damage. The intense pulse light directs its energy into the affected area and heats the excess pigment, safely removing it without any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. The result is an even monochromatic tone with little to no discolouration.

The IPL has been further refined to treat issues such as redness, rosacea, melasma, keratosis, and even pore and superficial skin tightening. Some IPLs—ours included—now even have the capability to differentiate between tanned skin and pigmented skin, allowing slightly tanned individuals a successful treatment under the right circumstances.

Choosing a Reputable Laser Clinic

Because IPL treatments create instant dramatic results at a relatively low cost, they are among the most successful and popular aesthetics treatments today. In inexperienced hands, however, they are also one of the most volatile. A small miscalculation in the parameters chosen, or an improperly taken medical history can result in negative side effects. Class III lasers are not medical grade and should be avoided.

Healthpoint Laser Aesthetics uses the medical grade class IV Cutera laser.  The limelight IPL uses broadband light (BBL) technology with wavelengths ranging from 520 nm – 1100 nm and is capable of treating a wide variety of skin conditions.

Not all IPLs are created equal

Make certain you are being treated by a highly trained technician using medical grade (class IV) technology. Not all IPLs are created equally. We strongly encourage all of our clients to do their homework when choosing a clinic or a practitioner that is right for them. If you are looking for more information on choosing a clinic, this article ‘here’ is a good start.

FAQs

What is the Limelight IPL Facial?

The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.

What areas can be treated?

The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.

What does the treatment do?

By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.

What do treatments feel like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

How long will the treatments take?

Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.

How many treatments will I need?

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sundamaged skin.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

When will I see results?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.

Will the spots and redness reappear over time?

New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
