IPL Hair Reduction
Excessive or unsightly facial and body hair can be embarrassing, annoying and uncomfortable for men and women, as well as being inconvenient and a constant battle to remove. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments use specific wavelengths of light which targets the pigment (melanin) within the hair, once absorbed into the melanin it is converted into heat that breaks down the cells within the hair follicle. This is the process that reduces the hairs re-growth and alters the structure of the follicle thus reducing your unwanted hair. Each pulse of light usually feels like a hot elastic band snapping on your skin. This is due to the light converting to heat in the targeted cells. Thankfully with the advanced technology of our NannoLight, the IPL therapist can ensure that our guests receive a high level of comfort throughout their treatment. Between 6-8 treatment sessions are needed due to the nature of hair growth and the optimum treatment interval is 4-6 weeks.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation
The aim of this treatment is to produce smoother even-toned and more youthful- looking skin The appearance of brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, thread veins and age pigmentation spots can make you look older than you actually are. Intense pulsed light treatment can soften and reduce the appearance of a number of very specific skin problems and conditions including: Acne, Rosacea, Birthmarks, Thread veins, Age pigmentation spots and Sun damage The IPL procedure is gentle, non-invasive and safe, requiring no downtime. In fact, many of our guests here at Looks Divine schedule their sessions during their lunch breaks. This procedure typically requires four to six sessions, of about 20 minutes each, performed at approximately three-weekly intervals.
IPL Vascular Treatment
A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from disorders of the blood vessels (vascular lesions). These can be of various types, from small spider veins or broken veins to large Port Wine Stains. IPL offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove many vascular lesions, such as facial thread veins. The light is attracted to the oxy-haemoglobin in the blood. As the light is absorbed by the blood in the vessels a heat reaction is caused which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then breaks down and the debris is removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system. Slight redness is seen immediately after the treatment and this will disappear in 1-2 hours or in some cases a few days. A blurring of the vessel is often apparent after treatment, normally followed by a variable degree of swelling. The swelling may last up to 4 days and may appear puffy, particularly around the eyes. These are all signs of inflammation and are an indication of successful treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure for 30-60 days post and prior to treatments. On average 1-2 treatments with 4 week intervals are needed for the best results.
