IPL – Photorejuvenation & Vascular treatments
As we go through life, particularly for those of us who live in harsh climates, our skin ages due to reduced collagen production and exposure to UV light. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment of sun-damaged skin can:
- make your skin look smoother
- reduce or remove age spots
- reduce uneven pigmentation
- reduce diffuse redness.
- improve skin texture
Facial treatments are the most popular, but all body areas can be treated. We can also use this advanced IPL technology to treat vascular lesions such as Port Wine Stains, facial blood vessels (telangiectasia), and the diffuse redness seen in early Rosacea. IPL can also be effective in the treatment of active acne, and is one of the treatments we offer as a multimodal acne management plan.

How does IPL work to rejuvenate skin?
At SkinBox, we are proud to offer the latest generation of IPL technology, known as Selective Waveband Technology (SWT). Short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light are directed at the skin. The Nordlys Ellipse® system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels and melanin in the age spots. When cells containing a lot of melanin or haemoglobin are treated, the target heats up and is destroyed within a few 1000ths of a second.
The narrower wavelength bands of the SWT, enables us to treat photodamaged skin using less than half the fluence, no need for active cooling, and fewer treatments than reported in studies with broadband IPL devices. Safer, quicker and more comfortable than ever before.
