All you need, all in One

Intense and pulsed light penetrates the skin and is then attracted by one of the chromophores or coloured particles. Light absorption causes the temperature to rise to such a degree that it will stimulate, destroy or sclerose target or adjacent tissues, depending on the case. Spots are removed or attenuated, the skin once more has a younger and more tonic aspect and lines and wrinkles are softened or virtually disappear.

How many sessions are necessary?

Results can be seen from the first session. With M22, one time treatment result is comparable to 3-5 treatments using other machines without the OPT technology.

What is IPL?
Intense pulse light known as IPL is a non-invasive skin procedure. It differs from laser treatments as it offers a non-ablative solution to improving the texture, colour, radiance and healthiness of your skin. IPL is not a laser but a broad wavelength light that is pulsed onto the skin and can treat multiple skin conditions simultaneously; including broken veins and capillaries, redness of the skin, age spots, pigmentation, post-acne hyperpigmentation, benign brown pigment and freckles. Treatment can take place over the entire body with face, neck and décolletage being the most popular areas.

How does IPL works?

Intense pulsed light systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin. This improves the irradiancy and tightness of the skin, controlling enlarged pores, and giving a more uniform complexion. Best of all there is NO damage to any surrounding tissue.

What is involved in an IPL treatment?

Depending on the area of skin and type of laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) system used, different treatment procedures may be recommended for you by your practitioner.

We will firstly conduct a consultation which clearly set out your expectations, and let us know your finance budget and accordingly we will advise the most appropriate machine and type of light to treat you.

Also, we will need your medical history, so that we can make sure there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment. You will also be asked to read detailed information about the treatment and sign a consent form at this time which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure.    

Photographs may also be taken by the practitioner for a "before and after" comparison at a later date.    

Is it painful?
The sensation of pain is extremely variable from one individual to another; it depends on the concentration of melanin in the skin, the hair size, the hair density, etc. This is why the darker the skin, the greater the pain. In general, the sensation is that of an elastic band snapped against the skin. It should be noted that a sensation of pain or prickling may persist for 1 to 2 hours after a session.

Are there any secondary effects?
In certain cases, there may be redness in the treated area, local oedema or peri-follicular papulae (goose bumps). These effects disappear several hours after the treatment. However, in the majority of cases, there is no visible secondary effect.
In very rare cases, if the precautions are not respected, there may be transitory modifications to the pigmentation (hypo or hyper pigmentation).
