What a fantastic start to spring this week has been! Even warmer air and an increase in humidity is on the horizon meaning our skin is in for some change. Spring is the perfect time to consider skin rejuvenation, so if you’re looking for IPL in Brisbane, we have all the information you must know before getting the treatment done.
We’ve heard it time and time again, the sun causes serious damage to your skin. From redness to freckles, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, aging and more, those teenage years spent baking in the Aussie sun has come back to haunt us in our later years. Although we can’t go back in time and reverse the exposure, we can use skin rejuvenation treatments to assist in minimising the damage to the skin. In comes, IPL Skin Rejuvenation, a laser treatment that delivers intense pulsed light into the skin, which is then absorbed by unwanted pigmentations, causing the pigment to shatter and disappear.
When you’re looking for IPL in Brisbane you want to be sure you have all the details! From candidate criteria to benefits, downtime and results it can be a tricky decision to make on your own. We’ve summarised the key features of IPL for a basic rundown of the treatment!
Am I the right candidate? – Any age, fair skin tones only.
What areas can I treat? – Face and some areas of the body such as hands and décolletage.
What does it feel like? – There is little pain associated with the treatment, the sensation is described as a snapping of a rubber band.
What is the downtime? – Immediately after the treatment you may feel “sunburnt” and experience redness for a few hours. The pigmentation will then harden and peel off gradually over a series of two weeks.
How many treatments do I need? – This will vary from client to client, generally we recommend a course of anywhere between 3 and 6 sessions 4 weeks apart.
At La Peau Skin Rejuvenation we always offer in-depth consultations to discuss what is right for you and your skin, so if you’re serious about getting IPL in Brisbane, you’ve come to the right place.
