How does IPL work?

IPL works on similar principals to laser in that light energy is absorbed onto certain target cells with colour in the skin. The light converts to heat, which damages that target cells whilst leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
The cells that have been targeted will move naturally to the surface of the skin and slough off. This then leaves a much lighter effect on the skin whether it be pigment, vascular or general rejuvenation.



Do IPL treatments hurt?

You may feel a slight pinch such as that of a snap of a rubber band, but no local anaesthetic or pain medication is required.
With hair removal the level of pain reduces with each treatment, as there is less hair to treat.
With pigmentation, again the level of paid reduces with each treatment as the amount of pigment is reduced.
