Sundamage, freckles, and brown marks on the skin
Photo facial, Photorejuvenation and Light therapy are all terms that refer to treatments using IPL for skin rejuvenation. Light waves are passed through the skin and target specific pigments; melanin in the skin (responsible for age spots, ‘liver spots’, freckles) The light energy converts to heat energy and it is this heat that damages the pigmented cells, without overheating the surrounding skin. The heated 'freckles' then form tiny crusts on the skin and fall off in around 7-10 days.
Your skin will then be smoother, brighter and pigmentation will be greatly reduces or gone. Often we recommend 1 - 2 treatments anywhere on the body.
Sometimes other types of pigmentation require different treatment. Your first appointment would be a consultation so we can determine which is going to be best for your pigment and skin type.
