IPL to treat Pigmentation

Pigmentation may be caused by sun damage, injury, irritation or past medications. Pigmentation treatment works by directing well controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals  – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood.

These two chemicals turn the light into heat, the heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored. The IPL machine is carefully controlled to produce the correct Light to destroy the target, without damaging the surrounding tissues.

How does IPL Pigmentation treatment l work?

Our advanced technology removes pigmentation by delivering precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light which are absorbed by two of the body's own natural chemicals - melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood. These two chemicals turn the light into heat, the heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored by the targeted blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed.

What can I expect from my appointment?

You will not be treated for IPL pigmentation removal without first undertaking a thorough consultation with our highly trained therapists. This will include a patch test which will confirm your suitability for the treatment. Your appointment will begin with the application of a cooling gel to the area being treated, which will minimize discomfort during the thread vein removal procedure. You will also be supplied with eye protection to wear during the treatment. There is little or no pain during the procedure. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on the skins surface. It is typically felt more around the nose area due to it being more sensitive, however, your therapist will ensure you are as comfortable as possible and lower your settings if required.

With the advanced technology available combined with our highly trained and knowledgeable therapists, your treatment plan will be completely customized and tailored to your specific skin concerns.

When will you see results?

Results can take several treatments depending on several factors relating to the pigmentation after the application of the laser/IPL.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required will depend on the extent of your pigmentation. We recommend on average 4-6 treatments. With a maintenance treatment recommended every 6 months.

Are the treatments painful?

Patients often refer the feeling as a tingling sensation each time the laser fires the flash. Patients are able to return to work or go about their daily routines straight away.

IPL to treat Red Thread Veins

Thread veins are formed by an increase in the size of small blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin. Sometimes referred to as telangiectasia or spider naevi, these tiny red, blue or purple veins can appear anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the face and legs. Thread vein removal treatment is carried out using energy heat pulses which are applied in short bursts which close down the thread veins without perforating them or damaging the surrounding tissue. Following the thread vein removal treatment, the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion. Intense Pulsed Light is used to treat Red Thread Veins on the face or body, in a safe but effective way. After one session you will begin to see improvement in the skins texture, appearance and general health. Course recommended. [table id=39 /]

What causes Thread Veins?

These broken veins and capillaries are found in men and women mainly on the face, which are caused either by age, trauma, sun exposure or alcohol.

How does IPL Thread Vein Removal work?

Our advanced technology removes thread veins by delivering precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light which are absorbed by the targeted blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly collapse and are re-absorbed by the body to be flushed out by our body’s natural defences, leaving little or no trace of the original vessel. This procedure is extremely safe and effective as it targets only the blood vessel and leaves the surrounding tissue undisturbed.

How does Zeolight work for Rosacea treatments?

People with Rosacea have many facial thread veins which dilate to certain stimuli (e.g. hot bath or spicy food) and stay open for longer periods of time compared to non-Rosacea sufferers. These thread veins have weaker walls and therefore do not function properly. Intense Pulsed Light treatment has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of Rosacea. It works by a process called photothermolysis. This light therapy selectively destroys the abnormal vessels (thread veins) that cause the Rosacea effect, allowing thicker walled micro vessels to be laid down.

What are the symptoms of Rosacea?

Rosacea can vary substantially from one individual to another, and in most cases some rather than all of the potential signs and symptoms appear. The four primary signs of Rosacea are:
  • Flushing or blushing
  • Persistent redness
  • Bumps and spots
  • Thread veins

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required will depend on the extent of your Rosacea. We recommend on average 1-3. During each treatment we can achieve substantial results due to the fact we have the best equipment which is IPL.
