Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

At Renew Medical Aesthetics we the Viora V30 platform to deliver Intense Pulsed Light treatments.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of the skin.

IPL works by emitting light energy which is absorbed into particular target cells with colour (chromophores) in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes damage to the specific target area. Most IPL systems use filters to refine the energy output for the treatment of certain areas. This enhances penetration without using excessive energy levels and enables targeting of specific cells with colour making it our treatment of choice when looking at sun/age spots, vascular areas acne.

The procedure of rejuvenating aged skin is referred to as photorejuvenation and requires a series of IPL treatments. The advantage of IPL therapy is its minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards.

How is IPL used to treat vascular lesions?

Aging, sun exposure and other factors can cause the appearance of broken capillaries and blood vessels on the face known as telangiectasias, which appear as spider veins. Sometimes broken capillaries can cause a diffused redness in the skin, called erythema, a source of social embarrassment for many people.

Rosacea is a common skin condition that is characterized by diffused erythema. All of these conditions respond well to IPL.

Who is a candidate for this procedure?

Anyone over the age of 18 who shows the signs of aged, sun-damaged or acneic skin is a candidate for IPL Skin Photorejuvenation.

How are IPL Skin Treatments using Photorejuvenation performed?

Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and patients are given protective eyewear.

During treatment, the smooth, glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to the skin, delivering precise pulses of light to the area being treated. IPL treatments are usually pain-free, but an anaesthetic cream can be used if the light pulses are uncomfortable. Some patients compare the sensation to a light pinch or the snap of a rubber band. Treatment sessions usually last about 20 minutes, and a complete program usually includes four to six sessions.

After treatment, patients can immediately return to normal routines and activities. Occasionally evidence of treatment such as redness or blotchiness may last for an hour or two.

Why are multiple treatments necessary?

Courses of 6 IPL treatments are required to provide gradual, natural-looking improvement with very low risk. Results usually last a year or more.
