This is not easy, as our skin ages due to excessive sun exposure and decreased production of collagen. Skin Rejuvenation treatment with Permanent Beauty helps you keep a younger and fresher look. Facial treatments are most popular, but all parts of the body can be treated.
How does the treatment work? The IPL System releases precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibro blast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin. In addition, specific lesions such as thread veins, age spots and freckles can be targeted resulting in more uniform complexion. The skin becomes firmer, appears more radiant and enlarged pores are reduced. ND Yag Laser may be used to target deeper lines and to promote further collagen production.
Can I be treated? As skin rejuvenation is based on light absorption in melanin and haemoglobin, treatments are most efficient in patients with light skin who are not sun-tanned at the time of the treatment. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the age spots/blood vessels and the skin, making treatment easier. Darker skins cannot be treated. However, the system used has pre-programmed settings for different skin colours that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable, no anaesthesia is required though and most people describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable, not unlike a quick pin prick.
Are there any side effects?
The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after treatment but this usually subsides quickly. Very rarely a small blister may form and there can be a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most people experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after a treatment. A Cooling pack can be applied afterwards to calm the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before the flake off, leading to a more even skin tone. Tightening of the skin should increase over the following months as new collagen is produced within the dermis.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatments are carried out every two to three weeks and six treatments are recommended for best results. Thereafter, top up sessions are performed as required, but typically once or twice a year.
