IPL Skin Treatment

So you want to rejuvenate your look? After a long summer of surf, sun and sand, your skin can start to look a little tired and lacklustre. Everyone loves a nice even tan, but as we age, that tan can become patchy and uneven, so it’s best not to expose your face to the sun if at all possible.

But heck, we live in Australia, and we love our beaches, right?

The team at Select Skin can help you clear up that patchy pigment and while we’re at it, get rid of those broken vessels around your nose and cheeks, too—step inside Select Skin for a powerful and effective IPL Skin Treatment.

So what is IPL?

IPL is an acronym for Intense Pulsed Light, and this little machine packs a lot of punch. IPL is the treatment of choice for dealing with broken vessels, unwanted pigmentation, hair removal, and so much more.

How can one machine do all this? IPL harnesses the power of broad-band light, delivered in short bursts to the treatment area. The light energy selectively targets the offending cells and heats them. Then your body’s circulation removes the cells, leaving your skin looking fabulous. Not only will IPL rid you of those unwanted brown spots, red vessels and hair, but in addition and for no extra effort, it will stimulate your skin to produce collagen and elastin, leaving you with a fresher look. Your skin will appear brighter, more translucent, firmer and with a healthy glow of luminosity – who doesn’t want that?

An IPL treatment is quick, with minimal discomfort, and you will be back home or to work the same day. The staff at Select Skin are highly trained professionals in light-based treatments – we know our stuff, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the most effective skin treatment in the Coogee area. Should your skin not be suitable for the treatment, we’ll be sure to tell you in advance.

Minimal side-effects.

IPL is a safe and effective way to treat unwanted pigment hair and broken vessels. Some redness is normal, and to be expected, makeup can be used as a cover-up if this is the case for you. Some treatments will predispose to some minor swelling, which usually subsides in 1-3 days and is a sign of mild inflammation resulting in new skin cell production.

Final Words

The staff at Select Skin are highly trained professional skin clinicians, and your safety is our priority. During the treatment, IPL safety eye shields will protect your eyes from the light.

A reputation for safety and efficacy have secured our place as the premier skin rejuvenation clinic in Coogee.
