By using IPL treatment, we can quickly and effectively tackle those skin concerns and conditions that can really hamper your confidence. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is ideal for treating acne, rosacea, thread veins, skin rejuvenation and pigmentation. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses broad wavelength light to break down the targeted cells while stimulating collagen and elastin production.

What makes our IPL treatment in Staffordshire stand out is our medical−grade Lynton Lumina Q IPL machine. It utilises innovative, award−winning technology capable of targeting and treating multiple skin conditions, and some can be dealt with in as little as one session. IPL can help to reduce skin pigmentation and rosacea, improve acne and significantly reduce the appearance of thread veins.

What is IPL and how does IPL work?
IPL is the acronym for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL is a broad wavelength of light that is filtered to the desired wavelength of light and directed onto the skin area of concern during your treatment. The heat that is produced by the light can breaks down blood vessels and/or pigment to achieve a significant reduction in their appearance. It also kills the p.acnes bacteria, thus reducing inflammation and acne or in the case of skin rejuvenation it heats up the fiberblast cells and stimulates collagen to give a tighter more youthful look to the skin.

The IPL technologies best feature is its high precision filters which can be modified, so the light spectrum responds to the particular skin condition we need to treat. A cooling system is built into the equipment to minimise any possible uncomfortable sensations and prevent blistering or overheating.
