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.

IPL Photorejuvenation is performed in our clinics in London Harley Street and Manchester by trained skin specialists who are highly qualified.

  • The Treatment
  • Aftercare

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.

FAQs

  • How do I prepare for IPL Photorejuvenation?

    We advise patients to avoid tanning and excessive sun exposure 6 weeks prior to their IPL treatment. It is also best to avoid any treatments that are likely to irritate the skin for 1-2 weeks before treatment which can include waxing. Your specialist skin practitioner will be able to go through your medical history that you provided at your consultation to advice on any medications that may cause bruising and if you have a history of cold sores than you may be required to seek GP advice before you start having treatment.

  • How does IPL Photorejuvenation treat pigmentation?

    IPL Photorejuvenation is a great treatment for improving the appearance of pigmentation such as age spots and sun damage. The intense pulsed light emits light waves which are absorbed by the melanin and haemoglobin in the skin which causes the pigment to fragment. These pigment fragments are then broken down naturally by the body making them less visible in appearance.

    Click here to book a consultation to find out more about how IPL Photorejuvenation can help improve the appearance of pigmentation.

  • How soon will I see the results?

    You will start to see some improvement in your skin a week after each IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. The best results will be seen 3-5 months after your last treatment if having a course. Your results may vary after each treatment and usually each treatment you have will be a little stronger than the one before meaning the results will start to become more noticeable over time.

    To find out how IPL Photorejuvenation can help you click here to book a consultation with our skin specialists.

  • How much does IPL Photorejuvenation cost?

    The cost of IPL Photorejuvenation treatment starts from £200.

    However price may vary depending on:

    The type of treatment required.
    The areas treated.
    The number of treatments needed.

    The best way to find out the cost of IPL Photorejuvenation treatment is to book a consultation with one of our expert laser skin practitioners where they will come up with a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve the results you desire.

    Consultations with our expert laser skin practitioners are £25 however this cost is redeemable against the price of any skin treatment that you wish to book following your consultation.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    I had a breast reduction performed by Mr Navid Jallali. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I have less backache and less neck ache. The size and shape are absolutely fabulous.The clinic was amazing. The nursing staff in the hospital were superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic and Mr Jalalli to anyone wanting a breast reduction.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
