IPL Skin Rejuvenation is one of the most effective treatments for smoothing out the tone and texture of your skin and can help in treating rosacea, age spots, sun damage/spots, and general skin tone irregularities.
A clear complexion is desired by many but it can be very difficult to achieve and maintain even with a set skincare regime.
IPL Photorejuvenation uses advanced technology to allow us to customise treatments for different skin tones and conditions. It is ideal for improving the overall look and texture of the skin without the need for intense downtime associated with surgery or other intense skin procedures.
We often use IPL treatment to help reduce the appearance of Facial Thread Veins, click here for more information.

What to Expect
The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 40 years with thousands of people placing their trust in us each year. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised service. We have a team of friendly nurses and expert surgeons who understand the importance of this decision and will support you throughout your journey with us.
IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment
Your IPL Photorejuvenation treatment will start with a cleanse of the skin before a mask is placed over the eyes to protect them from the light. The IPL device will then be gently pressed onto the skin and it will emit an intense pulsed light which then passes through the skin epidermis and penetrates deeper into the dermis where the pulsed light energy heats up and stimulates cells called fibroblasts to encourage the production of fresh collagen. IPL emits a wide range of light waves which also work to reduce the appearance of redness, brown spots and discoloration in the skin as they absorb the light and eventually fade over a course of treatment.
After your IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment
You may need to have several treatments of IPL Photorejuvenation to achieve your desired result. Our skin specialists usually recommend 3-6 treatments spaced 1 month apart. Once your course of treatment is finished you will notice an improvement in skin discolouration, redness, sun damage and age spots. Your skin will have an overall fresh and rejuvenated appearance.
Most patients are able to return to their regular activities shortly after treatment. Your skin may be red and sensitive for a few hours following treatment, similar to sunburn. You should avoid exposure to the sun and hot water for 48 hours.
