It’s really important to get enough sunshine for vitamin D and to boost our mood but too much UV exposure can lead to premature aging and other skin imperfections such as age spots and redness. We use Ellipse IPL skin rejuvenation treatment at the London Cosmetic Clinic in Knightsbridge to help reverse the signs of aging and make skin look more evenly pigmented.
IPL treatment, short for intense pulsed light, involves using various different wavelengths of light on the skin. This is absorbed by the skin and has various effects including stimulating collagen production and breaking down areas of excess melanin (the pigment in the skin) so that age spots and freckles start to disappear. Depending on the area that is being treated and the condition of the skin, you may need up to 6 sessions of our IPL skin rejuvenation treatment, each spaced 4 weeks apart. We will discuss this at your free consultation. The end result is skin that is smoother, more elastic and is more evenly pigmented.
IPL treatments work best on lighter skin tones and we recommend that you avoid sunbeds and use a SPF of at least 30 to avoid any damage to your skin post-treatment. The treatment can make your skin feel a bit tight and hot afterwards but you can apply aloe vera gel to help soothe it.
