IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

One of the best and most effective treatments for age spots and skin pigmentation is Intense Pulsed Light or IPL as it is more commonly known. IPL is a very powerful light which is emitted by a rapid pulse of flashes. These pulses are absorbed by the target structure in the skin, heating it and destroying it.

Once the pigmentation has been treated, the area will darken over the following few days, form a flat crust or scab and then come away naturally leaving no scarring.

IPL for the removal of age spots

At Absolute Aesthetics, the most popular IPL treatment for men and women is the removal of age spots. These occur on areas of the body that have been regularly exposed to the sun and are commonly found on the face and hands. Also known as liver spots or sun spots, they are usually flat to the surface of the skin and brown in colour.

Anybody can develop age spots but they are more typically found in people over the age of 40 who have fair skin. Age spots are harmless if left alone but can be an ageing feature and cosmetically unattractive.

IPL is also used to remove facial thread veins and many skin complaints that are caused by ageing, such as :

  • Facial redness
  • Red veins
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Pigment changes
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Fine lines
  • Liver spots
  • Age spots

IPL is a safe and effective treatment. As with all medical treatments there are contraindications and risks which may mean treatments need to be adapted for specific clients – or postponed for a period of time.

All clients must have a consultation and patch test prior to a full treatment.
