For many years, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) has been used with great success as an extremely safe and effective method of treating Rosacea (red flushing skin) and pigmentation in both men and women.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments
The AFT 570 treats brown pigmentation, age spots, redness due to broken capillaries and is great for photo damaged skin. It rejuvenates dull complexions and evens out skin tone including red flushing skin and rosacea.
Unlike resurfacing lasers which work by burning away layers of the skin and can mean days or weeks of healing time, the AFT 570 gives skin a younger appearance without damaging the skin.
AFT stands for Advanced Fluorescent Technology. The treatment consists of a series of gentle light pulses targeted around the problem areas. The light from these pulses penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessel or lesion and the body begins its natural healing process.
Treatment generally involves a series of five sessions and most people will see slight improvement after their first session.
There is no healing or recovery time with the AFT 570 meaning minimum disruption to your everyday life.
Does it hurt?
Most people tolerate AFT Pulsed Light treatment well and would describe the sensation as “a rubber band snap on the skin”.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately after treatment skin may appear flushed, brown spots may appear darker and capillaries may be more visible but this will usually settle down within 24 hours.
How quickly will I see results?
Treatment generally involves a series of five sessions and the results will vary from person to person. Each treatment delivers gentle, subtle improvements with some patients seeing significant results in two or three sessions. Treatments around the eyes tend to be more noticeable after only a couple of sessions but, again, this depends on many factors. In general, the younger the skin, the better the blood supply and the better the result but skin age may not be the same as actual age and we will always advise you as to which treatment we believe will give you the best results.
