This exciting treatment is very ‘patient friendly’:

For optimal results a series of 3 – 5 IPL treatments are recommended. In consultation with your doctor, you can have yearly follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
What is Photo Rejuvenation of the skin?
Photo Rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. Most people, as they age, find their complexions impacted by sun damage, time, and lifestyle choices. Photo Rejuvenation is a series of Intense Pulse of Light treatments that improve many of the unwanted effects of ageing.
Medical scientists discovered a long time ago that light therapy has the power to stimulate skin cells on a molecular level, assisting the production of collagen and growth factors which help the skin cells grow and rejuvenate. The Cryo Broadlight treats age spots and pigmentation from sun damage, as well as small veins and capillaries, which make the skin appear red, pink or purple. Broken blood vessels in the skin can leave the skin with a sallow appearance. Cryo Broadlight IPL treatment helps clear the unwanted pigments in the skin, thereby improving its colour and texture.
The Cryo Broadlight IPL System uses filtered non-coherent light to selectively destroy melanin-laden cells, blood-filled capillaries and hair roots in a process called Selective Photothermolysis. The Cryo Broadlight Intense Pulse of Light technology can also be used in selective killing of problem skin cells, such as any that are diseased (various pre-cancerous lesions), aged and sun damaged (actinic keratosis), or infected (propionibacterium acnes complicating acne).
