Does IPL work?

There are over 60 different models of IPL machines currently in operation in Australia. 

However only 6 of these models are actually approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The TGA is the governing body in Australia that sets out guidelines and safety practices which we must abide by to ensure all safety aspects are met. IPL machines range anywhere from $5000 to $200,000 to purchase, and it is important to note that you are paying for high quality IPL therapy, which in turn will have a bearing on your safety and ultimately the end result of the treatment. So in answer to your question Does IPL work? The answer is YES! You need to choose the provider of your IPL treatments carefully.

After researching different IPL therapies over many years, we found the Lumenis M22 IPL to be the best because the results are predictably excellent. Our machine suits our clients needs and gives the results promised. Lumenis M22 offers two outstanding features that make it one of the most effective hair removal and sun damage removal systems to date.

  • A refrigerated handpiece and patented cooling gel, which allows maximum energy delivered with minimum discomfort.
  • The handpiece can be recalibrated daily, which means you get the same amount of energy delivery for the entire life of the handpiece.

What is IPL laser and what does it treat?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of aging, collagen and elastin, fine lines and wrinkles, broken capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation, open pores, dull complexion, the symptoms of rosacea and unwanted hair. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest and hands.

It offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual concerns and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction. This new procedure is called photorejuvenation.

How is the IPL laser treatment performed?

The area is first cleansed and then a cool soothing gel is applied. The smooth glass surface of the IPL in-built refrigerated handpiece is gently pressed onto your skin and pulses of light are dispersed. You will feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. Immediately after treatment ice packs will be applied to reduce stinging, redness and swelling. The skin will feel like moderate sunburn and this generally lasts for about an hour. For optimal results several treatments will be required to provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about twenty minutes.

Why are multiple IPL treatments necessary?

Depending on the number of concerns you are treating, and the severity of each individual concern, a discounted course of treatments is highly recommended to achieve optimal results.

What do I need to know?

It is important to minimise sun exposure before and after treatment. After treatment you may experience some, none or all of the following skin changes, i.e. swelling, bruising, darkening of freckles/pigmentation and age spots, pigment striping and blistering. These temporary changes can last anywhere from 4-14 days depending on how well you heal and the amount of sun damage on the skin prior to treatment. For quicker healing you are required to use our prescribed aftercare treatment products. This treatment is not advised should you have any special occasions to attend within the healing period. A thorough consultation prior to any treatment is compulsory. You will be rebooked for your next treatment in a minimum of 4 weeks time.

 Symptoms of Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin disorder that leaves people red-faced from dilated blood vessels and chronic flushing. Rosacea can also cause pimples and/or blisters on the nose and cheeks. IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels and redness without injuring the surrounding healthy skin, while greatly reducing the episodes of flushing with long-term effectiveness.
