IPL Photo Rejuvenation (Limelight)

Skin pigmentation and redness often develop naturally as time goes by. This can be caused by numerous factors, such as sun damage and dietary behaviours as well as genetics and ageing. Fortunately, safe cosmetic procedures are available that are capable of diffusing redness and pigmentation.

At SKIIN, we’re proud to offer IPL photo rejuvenation in Melbourne for clients who are looking to restore the natural complexion of their skin. A series of IPL sessions can effectively reduce the visible signs of pigmentation, redness, improve overall skin texture, laser hair removal and tone and assist with general skin rejuvenation.

At SKIIN we use Cutera’s Limelight to perform our IPL laser treatment, which is one of the best on the market in terms of equipment and treatment options. Our IPL treatment can also be combined with other intensive treatments to further enhances clients results and ensure they achieve their desired end result effectively.

What is IPL?

IPL is a Laser treatment designed to help treat/ improve the appearance of sun spots, rosacea, age spots, pigmentation and skin texture.

How does IPL work?

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent lightguide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

How many treatments are required?

A series of treatments are required for longer lasting results, this will vary depending on your individual concerns.
