What is it?
By emitting the optical pulse and electric pulse at the same time, the net effect is to force the electric energy to stream preferentially to the regions of the dermis pre-heated by the absorbed light, producing a greater and more focused thermal effect than a single pulse of high energy light. With less intense light energy there are less burning risks and the synergistic coupling of energies means that each pulse can be delivered for a longer period of time than standard IPL – yielding improved results.
How Does It Work?
The gentle light and electric energies break up the pigment and blood in lesions and stimulates collagen restructuring and production, thus restoring skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections) and rough skin texture will improve over a series of treatments.
Treatments are repeated every 4-6 weeks for an average of three to five treatments.
The sensation is often described as a ‘hot pinch’ or ‘snapping’ feeling. The sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second and warmth and/or a tingling sensation is experienced for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without any topical anaesthetic, but individuals who are more.
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated before the next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily go darker before they lighten.
Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and ageing in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities, uneven or rough skin texture. Skin rejuvenation can be performed on face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
