Our Pulsar IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment results in hair-free, smooth skin
Pulsar IPL delivers safe bursts of light which are absorbed by the melanin in your hair, destroying the follicle from the root with minimum discomfort and no side effects. The results are effective, long lasting, quick, pain-free and clinically safe.
The IPL light is attracted to dark areas in your skin, making it even more effective for people with lighter skin. As it hits the dark spots, the light shatters the pigmentation which encourages it to lift to the surface before gradually lightening over a number of treatments as your surface cells renew.
Pulsar IPL can be used to treat the following:
- Facial Thread and Spider Veins
- Permanent Hair Reduction
- Photo Rejuvenation
- Pigmented Lesions
- Rosacea treatment
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Vascular Lesions
During this treatment, safety eyewear must be worn to protect your eyes from the light generated by the Pulsar machine.
After applying a gel to the treatment area, we will use a small hand piece to touch your skin with flashes of light.
The treatment may feel a little uncomfortable, however it is not painful. The discomfort varies with each person, depending on your individual pain threshold and the type of machine used.
If you are having this treatment in a sensitive area, you may require an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment more comfortable.
What are the side effects of this treatment?
Immediately after the procedure, you may notice some swelling, and the skin may become pink and a little sore. You may also experience a feeling similar to mild sunburn, but this is a reaction that usually disappears within a day or so.
