Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation – Melbourne, Victoria
If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your face and body without undergoing invasive, costly surgery, we invite you to explore the non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments featured at our practice. From advanced laser treatment to wrinkle reducing fillers, we offer a variety of procedures designed to restore the health and vitality of your skin.
IPL Laser System – Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Removal
IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are highly effective for patients with common skin disorders, including telangiectasia (prominent veins), skin hyperpigmentation, sun damage and acne scarring. IPL skin rejuvenation sessions through our Melbourne practice can remove or reduce skin irregularities and improve the overall tone and texture of your skin.
During treatment, the IPL laser emits a gentle pulse of light that penetrates the surface of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen. After several IPL sessions, the skin will become more uniform, and any discolouration or other skin irregularities will begin to fade.
Intense pulsed light treatments are extremely gentle, with very few side effects. They offer a non-ablative alternative to other deep tissue skin rejuvenation techniques featured at our Melbourne practice, including laser skin resurfacing.
Who is a candidate for IPL treatments?
The IPL laser is remarkably versatile; it can be used for a variety of purposes, including hair removal and the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Candidates for IPL treatments include anyone with sun damage, unwanted freckles, mild scarring, age spots, hyperpigmentation, facial redness (rosacea), broken capillaries (telangiectasia), facial wrinkling, large pores, or unwanted facial hair. IPL treatments are appropriate for use on the face, as well as the neck, chest, shoulders, arms, and hands. Multiple IPL sessions are ideal for comprehensive skin rejuvenation through our Melbourne practice.
IPL can also be used to remove hair on virtually any area of the body. IPL laser hair removal is particularly well suited for the treatment of hair growth on sensitive areas of the body, including the face and nipples.
What can I expect during and after an IPL treatment?
IPL treatment sessions are brief (most sessions last approximately 30 minutes) and discomfort is minimal. The IPL laser is gentle enough to treat all skin types with little or no damage to the surface of the skin. Following an IPL skin rejuvenation treatment at our Melbourne practice, our patients will notice a gradual enhancement in the appearance and texture of their skin. Improvement will continue with each session; generally, between three to six treatments are recommended for optimal benefit. Because the light settings can be customised based on the individual patient’s requirements, side effects are minimal. A slight swelling or redness may occur adjacent to the treated areas but this will fade quickly.
