The Benefits of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a type of light based treatment, similar to laser, that consists of multiple different wavelengths and the light is filtered to target a specific area on your body. This is different to laser therapy treatments that apply a more concentrated beam of light with one wavelength.

Intense Pulsed Light therapy is a non-invasive, fast and permanent treatment. The SkinBase IPL delivers results from the very first treatment.

IPL Benefits are many

IPL photofacial is a light based therapy that works by targeting structures within the skin such as melanin, blood, and water in collagen with wavelengths of light to break down the structure and improve the appearance of your skin.

The light pulses also stimulate collagen production which floods to the area, plumping the skin and reducing wrinkles and resulting in a more youthful appearance. The treatment is also effective for sun damaged skin too.

As the treatments are both non-surgical and non-invasive you can see substantial results with no downtime. You can return to work straight away.

Treats a variety of skin conditions

IPL treatments can resolve a range of different skin concerns including sun damage, age spots, unwanted freckles, pigmentation, stretch marks, broken capillaries and thread veins. The treatment works to clear up your complexion to get rid of any issues you feel are affecting your confidence. All of this without having to resort to invasive procedures.


No needles, just a slight tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during a SkinBase IPL treatment. This is minimised by a specially developed cryo-handset that is placed on the skin before the treatment, the SkinBase IPL is infinitely more comfortable than most conventional methods like waxing, laser and electrolysis and many other IPL or laser systems.

Fast procedure

Hair reduction treatment times are similar to waxing, but have no post treatment clean up. Once your hair course is complete, you may never need to return. Just think about the amount of time and money this can save you.

IPL Advanced therapies take no more than 30 minutes and you will only need on average 3-4 treatments.

Sun damage repair

Sun damage from UV exposure is a major factor in skin ageing and unfortunately our desire to have tanned skin has only resulted in us ageing faster. Even everyday facial movements like frowning can result in fine lines appearing, deepening into wrinkles over time.

Our new Advanced IPL therapies aim to address these issues. Stimulating the skin’s natural processes and reversing the effects of ageing, giving you a youthful appearance free of the tell-tale signs of advancing years.

Zero Recovery Time

Unlike many treatments, the SkinBase IPL is non-invasive as well as highly effective. You can return to work immediately following treatments so no need to take any additional time out to complete your course.
