One of the biggest threats to your skin at any given time is sun damage, but this is even more of a problem throughout the summer months when the days are longer and the skies are clearer. It’s not necessarily about temperature but more so about prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays.

If your skin is showing signs of sun damage, such as premature ageing and sun spots, try the IPL Facial at Precise Medical Aesthetics

 The IPL Facial

Also commonly known as a photofacial, an IPL Facial is a skin therapy that utilises advanced aesthetic technology to improve the texture and colour of your skin in a non-invasive way. While IPL Facial technology does share similarities with laser technologies, it does differ in that it releases many different wavelengths of light energy as opposed to just one. This allows our skin specialists to treat more than one concern at once.

It works by penetrating deep into the dermis without harming the surface-level skin. Here, melanin absorbs the light energy and converts it into heat, which then destroys unwanted pigmentation while stimulating collagen production. Collagen proteins are a key component of healthy, youthful skin, but over time their levels deplete, leading to skin laxity and volume loss.

By encouraging the production of new collagen proteins, you’ll notice a firmer, more even tone to your skin, with long-lasting results. 

 Maximise Your Results

An IPL Facial offers effective results for a wide range of patients, but those with lighter skin tones often see the best outcomes. Alongside fine lines and sun spots, this type of treatment can visibly improve the appearance of acne, birthmarks, stretch marks, rosacea, spider veins and more!  We might recommend using it in conjunction with laser treatments to maximise the potential of your results. An IPL Facial works superbly alongside EndyMed’s 3DEEP® Radiofrequency Facial Tightening, or the unique Three For Me laser treatment. 

 At Precise Medical Aesthetics, we use our combined knowledge of facial anatomy and highly advanced aesthetics to provide a deeply personalised experience. None of our treatments are one-size-fits-all and only through a bespoke treatment plan can we hope to meet your needs. This is why we often combine treatments, and some patients see improvements after just one session, but we highly recommend completing a full course under the guidance of your skin specialist if you want to get the most out of your treatment.
