ICON IPL: What to expect at The Skin Lab
IPL uses a bright light in front of which filters are placed to censor certain wavelengths not consumed by pigment and blood vessels.
The light energy penetrates just below the skin’s surface, damaging either the melanin (skin pigment) or blood vessels. The body’s natural skin repair mechanisms then remove the damaged tissue to produce a smoother skin appearance. It usually takes 3-6 treatments to see significant results and treatments can be spaced out every 3-4 weeks.
What does the IPL treatment involve?
A thorough skin consultation is carried out, concentrating on helping you understand the procedure, possible side effects, and the importance of after care.
