Treating Acne with IPL

IPL is proving to be extremely effective in the treatment of acne. BENEFITS:-
– Destroys the bacteria on the skin preventing new spots occurring
– Prevents over-production of sebum and dramatically reduces inflammation
– Stimulates collagen production reducing the appearance of scarring
– Quickly see a noticeable difference in the condition of your skin

How many treatments will I need? We recommend 3 to 4 treatments at 2 to 3-week intervals for the best results.

Before and After (image shown): “I was suffering really badly with breakouts all over both cheeks. They were really painful boil like spots and I didn’t know what to do to make it better. I have had 3 treatments with the IPL and I can’t believe how much better my skin is.” Sarah Telfer, Skinbase Client

Intense Pulsed Light

What is IPL?
Intense Pulsed light is an alternative to conventional hair removal techniques such as waxing, epilating and shaving. IPL targets and disables hair at the follicle to give a permanent reduction in hair growth.

How many treatments do I need?
Hair growth happens in three different phases and permanent results are achieved during one particular phase. This means typically a course of 6-10 treatments will be needed to see the best results. Facial hair is affected by hormonal imbalances and so we advise 10-12 treatments may be required.

Skinbase IPL

Vascular Lesions

A very quick and effective solution for thread veins (face and body), rosacea and Campbell de Morgan spots/cherry angiomas. IPL treats thread veins by emitting wavelengths of light that are filtered to target the haemoglobin in the thread veins/broken capillaries. This causes the veins to gradually break down and eventually disappear.

How many treatments will I need? We recommend 1-3 treatments at 2-3 week intervals
