Also known as Skin Photo Rejuvenation or Facial Rejuvenation, IPL treatment is a quick and relatively painless process that works similarly to others lasers, except that it emits multiple wavelengths of light, using its own filters, in order to target different problem areas of the skin as required. This enhances its ability to penetrate the skin without using drastic energy levels in order to expel any damaged pigments, making your skin feel irresistibly silkier, smoother and younger.

RF SUPER SKIN TIGHTENING
Lift, tone and tighten your skin with our new and innovative treatment RF Skin Tightening. Using advanced radio frequency technology; heat is delivered to the skin accelerating the production of collagen and elastin with an immediate lifting and tightening for a healthier looking skin.
Improve Collagen + Smooth Fine Lines With Skin Tightening
One of the signs of ageing is a gradual loss of skin elasticity, and a natural loss of skin collagen production. With this in mind, Clearskincare Clinics’ Skin Tightening treatments are designed to deliver fuller, plumper skin without any downtime. This treatment is suitable for all clients who are concerned with firming the skin and refining the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used as a preventative treatment for skin that is starting to show the signs of ageing.
How Does It Work?
Le Healing Clinic uses IPL or radio frequency technology for our Skin Tightening treatments. Radio Frequency heats the skin to over 40 degrees which stimulates new collagen, growth and brings blood surface to the surface of the skin, plumping the skin for instant results.
Skin Tightening Has Three Effects On The Skin
1. Tissue Retraction: The generated heat immediately tightens the skin.
2. New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated.
3. Improved circulation: Skin Tightening improves blood and lymphatic flow.
Treatment Intervals: A course of 10 treatments is recommended once or twice a week.
Treatment Time: 20 to 30 mins
Recovery Time: There is redness and heat in the treated skin that disappears within 30 minutes.
How does IPL UltraLUX treatment work?
Short, safe bursts of light are directed at the skin. The light is converted to heat, which destroys the protein in the wall of the vessels, causing the vessels to gradually disappear after treatment. To ensure the best light transmission, a thin layer of gel (like that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment.
Which vessels can be treated?
Many different problems can be treated. Treatments are most efficient in patients with light skin who are not suntanned at the time of the treatment. If your skin is less tanned, the contrast between the blood vessels and background colour of the skin is greater, making treatment easier. However, UltraLUX has preprogrammed settings for different skin types that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.
How long does a treatment take?
Often, several vessels can be targeted in one flash of light. The treatment time depends on the area to be covered and the number of distinct vessels to be treated. A single session typically lasts 15-20 minutes.
Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
It is, important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning products) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb more light, which makes treatment less effective and less comfortable. It is also a good idea to avoid smoking in the 4 hours prior to treatment.
For optimal results we suggest applying a cooling post treatment gel morning and night for 48 hours and having a at home skin care regime. This will be discussed at your treatment consultation and recommendations will be made. It is essential that you avoid sun exposure for 30 days, even if there is no sign of inflammation in the treated area with a good quality physical sunblock product.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments depends on location and number of the vessels to be treated.
Does the treatment hurt?
No anaesthetics are required, and many patients describe the treatment as being like a flick from a rubber band followed by a sensation similar to the feeling of gentle warmth after a day on the beach.
At Le Healing Clinic, we perform the IPL light onto the area to be treated. It will penetrate through the layers of your skin, effectively “burning” it off. The treatment stimulates new skin growth, and when the area has healed, the scar or blemish is less noticeable than before. The IPL procedure lasts about 20 to 30 minutes and most clients feel only a mild snapping sensation. The effects are almost immediate and results can be seen once the redness subsides. Our specialist will recommend that you use sun block on the area for at least two months after your first course of treatments, in some cases further treatments may also be recommended 6 to 12 months after.
The effectiveness of the IPL treatment for acne scarring and skin blemishes depends both on your skin type and the extent and type of your scars. Often IPL treatments should be carried out in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as a good skin regime, which helps achieve the best results. Our specialists at Le Healing Clinic will advise you with the best advice for your treatment and whether the treatment is suitable for you.
All procedures carry risks as well as benefits. The chances of complication following your treatment, depends on the after care taken.
You need to be completely honest with our specialist and fill out forms honestly. Our specialist will then explain how the risks apply to you.
