About the treatment

The IPL treatment blasts damaged vessels back into the bloodstream, allowing the body to reabsorb them

How does it work?
During treatment a cool gel is applied to the skin and you will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes. A hand piece is placed on your skin and pulses of light are emitted to treat the skins imperfections. The firing of the IPL feels like the flicking of an elastic band, and does not require local anesthetic cream or analgesics beforehand. Treatments can take as little as 5-10 minutes, or up to 45minutes, depending on the area treated. Immediately after treatment the area reddens and may feel like sunburn for 2-12 hours and some swelling of the spots will be seen. If large areas or many spots are being treated, significant swelling can occur. By day two, the pigment starts to darken, and over the next few days crusts over and then literally washes off. This will take 5 - 7 days on the face and 10 - 20 days on the body. Rosacea redness will decrease after one week. Broken capillaries (spider veins) disappear or go darker, then fade in 1-2 weeks.
How long will the results last?
For most clients the results are permanent following IPL for Vascular.
Treatment preparation
Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks prior to any IPL treatment. The skin must be free from spray tan or tanning creams. If treating an area covered in hair, the hair must be shaved 12-24hrs prior to coming for your treatment.
Who can have this treatment?
IPL Vascular treatments are not suitable for dark skin types or those with open wounds or lesions at the treatment site. Treatment is not suitable to have during pregnancy. IPL is not suitable for those who have been on Roaccutane in the last 6 months, have open wounds, infections, rosacea, psoriasis or dermatitis in the area to be treated.
Post-treatment care
Apply ‘Skinstitut Laser aid’ every 4 hours after your treatment of IPL, this is available to purchase at the time of your treatment. Use of a broad-spectrum SPF50 sunscreen is essential post treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Some clients may require a single treatment, while others will require ongoing treatments to achieve the best possible results. Your clinician will discuss the expected number of treatments, along with expected results during your consultation. As a guide, we generally recommend 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. We currently offer packages of IPL Vascular at a discounted rate.
