FTT Skin Clinics – IPL (Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation).

We offer Next generation IPL hair removal, skin rejuvenation, photo shower, cell toning and vascular lesion removal functionality. 

Our treatments use a high powered computer controlled flash gun to deliver an intense broad spectrum pulse of light.

IPL and Laser both use light and heat for targeted treatments. However IPL uses a broad light spectrum to treat several conditions whereas Lasers use a single wavelength of light which will only treat one condition.

The following treatments are available

  • Cell Toning: Short rapid pulses of light remove pigment lesions (such as melasma).
  • Photo Rejuvenation: A continuous stream of 300 light pulses/per minute killing bacteria.
  • Thread Vein Removal: Thread veins are removed permanently because the light is absorbed by the haemoglobin causing damage to those blood vessels. Eventually the veins break down and are reabsorbed by the body.  
  • Hair reduction: Hair cells are killed because the pigment in the hair absorbs light which turns to heat.

We will also  carry out a complementary Skin Analysis to decide on the best course of action prior to treatment.

IPL is comparable to an ultra powerful camera flash against the skin. The selected wavelengths target particular colour pigments which in turn targets particular skin conditions. What is IPL Wikepedia.

Our IPL uses a variety of different colour filters for different treatment whereas laser’s typically target a specific treatment because it only generates a single wavelength of light,

Hairs grow in different cycles – Active, Dormant and Shed ( to be replaced with new active hair growth). Hair cells are killed because the pigment in the hair absorbs light which turns to heat. IPL only removes hair during its active growth cycle which is why multiple treatments are required.

Light is absorbed by colour particles on the blood and melanin. It also treats the bacterium in acne and protein present in collagen producing cells.  Pigmentation marks move to the surface and are shed naturally. Lesions are absorbed into the lymphatic system for excretion. Enlarged Pores and scaring diminish and fade. Fine lines and wrinkles are softened and may disappear. Collagen and Elastin production increase improving the skins texture and elasticity.

Most treatments have little or no sensation but others produce a stinging sensation similar to being pinged by an elastic band. If at any time the treatment is uncomfortable then the intensity can be reduced.

With any high energy, light based device there are risks involved including hypo, hyper pigmentation scarring and burning.

We perform a patch test 24 hours prior to treatment to minimise risk.

For 24 hours after each IPL treatment.
