What is Intense Pulsed Light? IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is the process of using specific wavelengths of light to provide a range of aesthetic and therapeutic treatments.
IPL is different to laser based therapies that only produce a single wavelength of light and can therefore only treat a specific condition.
The SkinBase IPL can be used for a wide range of treatments including hair reduction, photorejuvenation, acne and vascular lesions.
The SkinBase IPL also features a unique cooling cryo-handset. The cryo-handset creates an anaesthetic effect on the skin surface to provide the most comfortable treatment experience.
Our therapists are trained to provide the safest possible treatment by completing an in depth consultation and patch tests prior to treatment.
All treatments have potential side effects. By insisting on highest standards of training and experience our IPL therapists help ensure your treatments go without a hitch.
One of the main contra-indications to treatment are an “active” sun tan on the area to be treated. Therefore sun exposure to the treatment area should be avoided 1 month pre and post treatment.
Your therapist will cover all aspects of your treatment as part of the consultation. If you would like more detailed information please download our treatment care advice leaflet.
