Sun-Damaged Skin Treatment
How does Intense Pulsed Light treat sun-damaged skin?
The Intense Pulsed Light system produces a light that is carefully filtered in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics is allowed to reach your skin.
The light that is allowed through has been chosen because it is the sort that two natural body substances respond to. Age spots contain a substance called melanin, and diffuse redness contains haemoglobin. When cells containing a lot of melanin or haemoglobin are hit with the right type of light, they heat up and are destroyed within a few thousandths of a second.
Is sun damaged skin treatment painful?
There is no need to use any method of pain control. Many clients describe the discomfort as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach. The lighter the skin colour, the less the pain.
How long will the treatment of sun damaged skin take?
A full face treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.
How many sessions are required?
You should expect a total of 1 to 3 treatments before you obtain the desired results. However this is dependant upon the severity of the sun damage and the colour of the surrounding skin.
