INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also known as photo facial, is a laser based skin treatment targeted at treating skin conditions such as acne, rosacea (facial redness), sun damaged skin, hyper pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and facial veins.
HOW DOES IPL WORK?
During the process, high energy light waves are made to penetrate deep into your skin layer. These light waves destroys the dead skin cells and helps to stimulate the production of collagen (the protein which is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity).
When the amount of collagen in the skin increases, your skin becomes more supple and smooth, and the growth of new skin cells is encouraged.

Right after your first IPL session, you will see prominent results which would get more enhanced over the treatment course. To get more effective and enduring results, you would probably have to take 3-4 sessions.
There is no downtime for IPL treatment. It is important to ensure the treated area of the skin is not exposed to the direct sunlight because tanning post treatment sessions can increase melanin regeneration, which is likely to result in hyper pigmentation.
At Cosmedic clinic, you will be guided by our expert team of doctors and therapist who after analysing your skin type and texture, would advice you on the best treatment required to get the best results.
