IPL Treatment for Pigmentation
Intense-pulsed-light (IPL) provides a fast and effective treatment of unwanted pigmentation, sunspots and uneven skin tone.
Does it hurt?
The treatment of pigmentation (often called sun, age or liver spots) is extremely fast, often taking just a few seconds. Most people experience a slightly uncomfortable, flicking sensation during treatment.
Am I suitable?
Virtually all skin types can be treated. At the initial consultation you will be offered a test patch and we encourage you to ask questions about any aspect of the treatment suggested.
Is it safe?
Yes. Our team are fully trained in IPL treatments, and safety is of paramount importance in the clinic. When treating pigmentation the surrounding skin is protected so just the spot itself is removed. You should use a factor 30 sun cream or avoid sun exposure, including sun beds, for 6 weeks before and after treatment.
