About IPL Photo Rejuvenation
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is indicated for the cosmetic reduction of sun-induced skin damage and aging, including superficial pigmentation (brown spots) and telangectasias (broken blood vessels). Practically any part any area can be treated mild to moderate sun damaged skin, including face, neck, chest, back and hands.
How does it work?
All light based Skin Rejuvenation treatments work by converting light energy from the IPL to heat the treated area. This heat stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin which tighten the skin, lightens pigmentation, reduces telangectasias, and ultimately – after a series of treatments – improves over-all skin tone, texture, and appearance.
What is the Treatment Like?
During treatments, a mild warming sensation of the skin is noticed. Immediately after treatment, mild redness and slight swelling of the skin may be present. This will typically disappear over the next hour or so. Treatments of the same area are typically done after 3-4 weeks. Typically, a minimum of 5-6 treatments are required for optimum results.

What Can I Expect Before and After Treatment?

Before Your Treatment

Avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, or sunless tanning creams for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Patients with a history of excessive hyperpigmentation may use a skin lightening agent or topical hydroquinone 2 weeks prior to treatment in the proposed treatment area.

After Your Treatment

A broad spectrum UV sunblock, SFP 30+ or greater, should be applied to the treated area(s) whenever exposed to the sun. If persistent redness, swelling and/or discomfort are noticed, apply a cold compress or ice pack intermittently. Avoid exposure to heat – such as hot tub or sauna – until the discomfort has completely resolved. If symptoms do not improve, or worsen, contact us immediately.

IPL vs Laser

Why Adena IPL over other IPL machines?
The Adena machine is the most advanced IPL machine on the market being able to not only treat dark hair but being able to treat blonde, red and grey hair. The Adena Machine is very safe and is a european designed and manufactured machine.

There are three main benefits of Adena’s advanced technology. It is safer, less painfuland more successful than any other machine on the market. 

How does the Adena remove blonde, red, grey and white hair?
The wave lengths used in standard IPL targets the melanin in the hair. Since grey, red, white and blonde hair has no melanin, IPL doesn’t work. However, the Adena has a separate head for this type of hair that targets the haemoglobin or blood source of the hair instead of the melanin. Since waxing causes a microscopic injury to the skin or blood in the follicle, we wax the area to be treated beforehand for a more successful treatment.
