IPL FOR SKIN REJUVENATION
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.

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.
