Get a flawless complexion with the new, next generation Harmony IPL Skin Rejuvenation. Non-invasive, no-downtime and minimal discomfort during treatment for rejuvenation of the face, neck, décolleté and hands.
Our skin is constantly exposed to the rigours of the environment, stress and sun exposure, leading to tell tale signs of ageing such as age spots, wrinkles, broken blood vessels and an uneven complexion which can all make us look older than we are.
What is IPL used for?
The Harmony IPL Skin Rejuvenation system will improve
Sun damaged skin
Sun and age spots
It can also assist in the treatment of Rosacea and redness due to flushing and broken capillaries, as well as resulting in a smoother texture of the skin and creating a more even skin tone and a younger and more attractive skin.
How does it work?
The Harmony Dye-VL is a fifth generation IPL which incorporates Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) pulsed light for effective skin rejuvenation. The light is able to penetrate the sub-surface skin layers without damaging the skin and then this light is absorbed by the blood vessels or pigmentation.
The heat created by IPL damages the vessel or pigmented lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process, resulting in rejuvenation of the skin. The lesion will become darker initially and then flake off or be absorbed by the body. The result is that over time, lines and wrinkles reduce in depth, and in the case of fine lines, may disappear altogether. Overall skin tone is improved dramatically.
What is involved during the treatment?
Your Aesthetic Therapist will first perform an in-depth consultation and your medical history will be taken, to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment. You will be asked to sign a consent form at this time which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the treatment. Your Aesthetic Therapist will then take a Visia Skin Analysis (please link this to the consultation page) of your skin to enable us to create a bespoke programme for you and to answer any questions you may have prior to starting treatment.
We start by thoroughly cleansing the area to be treated and then your Aesthetic Therapist will put special glasses or eyepads over your eyes to protect them. A cool gel is then applied to the skin being treated. The surface of the hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light flash.
Once the treatment is over, the gel will be removed, the skin will be cleaned and a sun block will be applied to protect the skin. If there is any mild swelling, and for sensitive skin, a cool compress is applied following treatment for five or ten minutes.
The treatment will last up to 45 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
Does it Hurt?
You may feel a slight sting when the Intense Pulsed Light is applied, like the snapping of a small rubber band.
What is the skins’ appearance after the treatment?
For sun damage, brown spots, age spots and pigmentation, the spots generally look darker for 3-7 days following the treatment. Crusting can occur, which may last up to ten days. The spots will then begin to clear which will leave a clearer more even skin tone.
You can go back to normal activities immediately after treatment but we advise avoiding direct sunlight for 3-4 days post treatment.
When will I see results?
After several treatments, clients report a smoother skin that has a more even tone and pigmentation is much reduced. There is a high level of satisfaction with the outcome from this treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments that you require to achieve your desired outcome will be discussed at consultation, but it is likely to be 3 – 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. We can then advise on follow up treatments (such as once a year) to maintain your rejuvenated skin.
