How does IPL work?

IPL is a light based therapy that works by targeting structures within the skin such as Melanin, Blood and water in the collagen, with wavelengths of light to break down the structure and improve the appearance of the skin.  We are proud Lynton Laser users who are the UKs number 1 Laser Company and provider to the NHS.

How many treatments are needed?

For a course of photorejuvenation for we recommend a course of 3-6 treatments, 2-3 weeks apart.  For treating acne with IPL we recommend a course of 3-4 treatments at 2-3 week intervals.  Lastly for vascular lesions only 1-3 treatments are required at 2-3 week intervals.

What can be treated?

Each therapy uses particular wavelengths to target the problem area.  These treatments have fantastic results for a number of skin conditions including Rosacea, Pigmentation, Acne, Broken blood vessels, red and blue facial veins, fine lines and wrinkles.

Is IPL safe?

Lynton Lasers are the UK’s premier supplier of medical aesthetic technology to top Aesthetic Clinics.  Lynton have over 25 years of experience to ensure that their Medically Graded systems offer the most advanced and safe technology to date.

How does it feel?

A slight warming tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during IPL treatment. This is minimised by a specially developed cryogenic-handset that’s is placed on the skin before the treatment.
