Who is it for: Age spots, liver spots, sun spots, freckles
Benefits: The skin becomes clear leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
How it works: IPL Pigmentation systems release short pulses of filtered light that is readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, age spots, sun spots or liver spots. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.
The Procedure: A consultation and patch test (15 minutes) will determine if this treatment can be performed on you. If there is no reaction following the patch test then the treatment can commence after 7 days. A thin layer of gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The gel is removed and area cooled. During treatment protective eyewear will be provided.
Aftercare: It is important to follow the post treatment guidelines including using the SPF screen daily.
Price: One area - £50 (e.g., a cheek, nose, chin, lip).
Legs from £145.
