What is the difference between IPL v Laser?  I have heard that Laser is better than IPL

In short, laser is direct-chromatic, that is, one specific wavelength. IPL is scattered-chromatic, which uses multiple wavelengths. However, not all IPL’s and lasers are the same, these are just generic terms – it’s a bit like comparing cars – hatch backs vs sedans. You need to know what make and model it is: within that make, how good the engine is, if it’s been properly serviced and how it has been maintained etc.

Essentially a photon is a photon. The light that is emitted at a particular wavelength is the same whether it is laser or IPL. What will vary is:

  • The energy level – how powerful the system is.
  • The pulse width – which impacts depth of penetration and safety
  • The wavelength – if the wavelength is not ideal for a particular treatment, it doesn’t matter if you have the best laser or IPL, it will not deliver the best result.
  • Lens temperature – (i.e. integrated cooling).

Because our IPL is so adaptable we can choose different wavelengths, pulse widths, energy levels and temperature. Some other IPL’s don’t have these functions because they’re preset, our are not. Therefore we can specifically target and effectively treat a particular problem. More importantly if we cannot feel we cannot effectively treat your concern, we will inform you and refer you.

Once we have the right wavelength, pulse width and energy levels, the other thing to consider is the safety. Much like how many air bags in a car? Since our energy is delivered in a smooth pulse rather than multi spiking (one long smooth pulse as opposed to lots of spiking pulses) it reduces risks. Having integrated cooling allows our system to deliver more energy safely whilst simultaneously cooling the top layer of the skin to 5 degrees. What that means to you, is less treatments in a safer and more comfortable way. In addition to that the use of sapphire crystal is safer than glass, as glass tends to heat up (thus pitting), whereas sapphire conducts similar to metal, allowing the integrated cooling air blowers, chillers or chryo-spray that may pre-cool the target too much, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment, thus the need for more treatments.

Even if you have the ultimate high tech laser or IPL, if the machine has not been calibrated, serviced regularly, hasn’t had received software upgrades, or the hand pieces are not regularly updated, you cannot be assured that accurate levels are being utilized, which means that you cannot be assured of receiving the most effective / or safe treatment.

On the other hand, if you have the best “wiz bang” machine, but an inexperienced clinician, who doesn’t understand the interaction of these variables or cannot optimize these variables, it defeats the purpose and does not matter what equipment you have or what you are operating. Under-treat and you will see no results, over treat, you will increase the risks of an adverse reaction.

All these factors will obviously impact the price you are paying. Given that our clinic addresses all of these factors, we believe you are getting the most cost effective service on the market.

What is Skin Rejuvenation? Pigmented lesions 530/560nm. How it works

Light is absorbed by the pigmentation( sun damage, liver/sun/age spots etc which is then converted to heat. Any superficial or underlying pigmentation micro crusts and falls away.

Vascular lesions 530/560nm. How it works.

  • Light is absorbed by the capillaries, which in turn collapse. Blood is unable to flow through capillaries, which are rendered useless. Thus, the body, via the lymphatic system absorbs capillaries.
  • Vascular lesions may return and will require further treatments – while the capillaries are still fragile (7-14 days).
  • Rosacea will need maintenance and product support depending on the severity and other factors. Your dermal therapist will be able to discuss your needs in a skin analysis.

Acne treatments 420nm. How it works.

  • Slows the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the appearance of spots and pores in general.
  • Your dermal therapist will advise you of a skin solution to get maximum benefit out of our treatment.

Photo Rejuvenation 590 nm. How it works.

  • Filtered light stimulates the fibroblasts cells within the skin that produces collagen and elastin. This improves the irradiancy and tightens the skin, increases the production of collagen which will improve skin tone, texture, refines and refreshes your skin.

At your consultation

  • Your Dermal Therapist will perform a Skin Analysis and a patch test. This will take 45 minutes of your time. To assist us in giving you the best results please bring products you are currently using with ingredients and any medication and inform us of any health issues as this may effect your treatment. This is a must. Skincare / treatment planning and pre/post will also be discussed in this time.

How many treatments?

Pigment lesions: 1- 4 treatments may be required, once a month. Lightening of pigmentation will occur over the following months via the lymphatic system. Also a Dr’s certificate may be required on suspicious lesions.

Vascular lesions: 1- 4 treatments may be required, once a month

Acne treatment: treatments should be spaced 1 – 2 weeks apart. LED Blue Light, correct products including makeup, Jungle Brew peels/Medi Detox treatments, also diet/dietary supplements are highly recommended.

Photo Rejuvenation: 4 – 6 treatments may be required, once a month.

 

NOTE: All these treatments require commitment.

 

Post Care Treatment

Botanical side effects:

Redness/swelling – Anti histamines and cold packs can be used to reduce swelling.

Crusting, blistering, scabs, itchiness can also be a side effect. This would be unlikely if you follow pre and post care instructions.

Treated areas will feel like mild sunburn for 1 – 4 hrs after.

N.B. If skin is healthy the skin responds better.
