What does IPL feel like?
Many clients describe the feeling of IPL being similar to that of an elastic band flicking on the skin.
How long will the treatment take?
The length of each treatment depends entirely on the area being treated. For example, treating the full face may take approximately 20-30mins, or a full back for hair removal can take approximately 1 hour. Our therapists will provide you with an estimated time upon booking.
How many treatments will I need?
Every patient is treated as an individual and the number of treatments required cannot be specifically given prior to the initial appointment. During the consultation, our team will discuss treatment options and assess the area being treated.
What will my skin look like after the treatment?
It is typical to experience localised erythema (redness) and skin sensitivity for up to 14 days following treatment. Some clients may also experience minor oedema (swelling).
If pigmentation is being treated, you will experience a darkening to the area and a “milo-ing” effect which can appear raised on the surface. This may take up to 14 days to resolve.
Our team of therapists will provide after-care instructions that will assist in reducing any discomfort.
When will I see results?
This will depend entirely on what you are receiving treatment for. For patients with redness or pigmentation, the noticeable changes to your skin will occur almost immediately, and a few short weeks following your treatment. For treating fine lines and ageing skin, collagen and elastin is very slow to regenerate, and the best results will be seen approximately 6-12 months following your course of IPL.
