IPL skin rejuvenation at a glance
- Reduces the appearance of a number of very specific skin problems and conditions.

IPL treatment costs depend very much on your individual needs. Your personal treatment plan may recommend a series of treatments to achieve the best results. As a guide, a course of 3 treatments taking 45 minutes each costs from £875.
How intense pulsed light works
IPL technology is a type of laser that generates intense bursts of red or blue light. These heat the dermal tissue without harming or removing the outer epidermal layers of the skin. The body’s natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks. The appearance of any skin imperfection is then visibly reduced.
What IPL treatment involves
A cooling gel is first applied to the area to be treated and you’ll be asked to wear protective eyewear. A state-of-the-art Lumenis One or Quantum IPL machine is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that eliminate the pigment or imperfection without damaging surrounding tissue.
How long does it take and after your IPL treatment?
The treatment is pain-free but you may experience a slight tingling sensation and have some redness after for an hour or so. Each treatment takes around 20 minutes and you will be able to leave the clinic immediately after your session.
Your skin will appear fresher, rejuvenated and younger-looking even after just a few treatments and the benefits of a full course can last up to a year. Visible results can be dramatic with the increased collagen production toning and improving the elasticity of your skin. IPL is effective in itself but a combination of treatments could enhance results further.
Regular treatments keep skin looking young and fresh
We also recommend a top-up treatment once or twice a year to maintain your rejuvenated skin. Around 6 treatments at 3 week intervals is usually required.
IPL with other treatments
IPL is effective in itself but a combination of treatments could enhance results further. Other treatments capable of giving you firmer, younger-looking skin include microdermabrasion and facial peels. Deep lines or wrinkles might also benefit from line and wrinkle smoothing or dermal fillers treatment.
