Refresh and rejuvenate your skin with 15-minute light treatments.
Pigmentation, redness, sun spots, uneven skin tone and congestion can be eliminated with light therapy treatments, leaving your skin brighter and tighter in just 15 minutes. With limited downtime and immediate results, light therapies have become the new lunchtime facial.
Changes in pigmentation and skin tone can occur for a number of reasons, particularly sun damage. You may notice your skin appears mottled, or you have clusters of redness or sun spots. All of these skin complaints can be treated with light therapies, refreshing your skin and leaving you looking younger and more vibrant with little to no down time.
Essentially, light therapies work by breaking down pigment and discolouration, and kicking your skin cells into repair mode. They work as a deep cleanse for the skin, plus supercharge the normal healing process to leave you looking brighter and younger.
There are 3 different types of light therapies we use to rejuvenate your skin:
Our cosmetic medical-grade light therapies are extremely safe and effective and require little to no downtime. While there are innumerable benefits from our light therapies, here are just a few:
Results from University studies in the USA have found regular BBL treatments can stimulate the skin to rejuvenate healing at a cellular level in a treatment protocol called Forever Young. Many of these patients have reported appearing 10 years younger than their actual age!
The choice of therapy will be decided in your consultation by your cosmetic medical professional, and depends on your unique skin type, sensitivity and needs.
While everyone experiences pain differently, laser skin therapies are not known to be painful treatments. Most patients report Laser treatments as feeling like a pin prick sensation, particularly around the cheek and nose areas.
In contrast, IPL and LED usually don’t feel like much at all.
Your unique skin type and needs will determine the number of treatments, but we recommend at least four treatments around 4-6 weeks apart. This is how often your skin renews naturally, so the treatment will boost your natural healing cycle.
Medical grade lasers are the most effective laser treatments, meaning you may need fewer treatments than with inferior lasers. Always ensure you choose a cosmetic medical clinic for laser treatments, as you will minimise your risk of scarring and infection.
IPL is more superficial than laser, and targets discolouration and acne. Most patients report not feeling any pain or soreness during IPL treatments. We usually recommend at least four treatments to create extensive, lasting results.
It’s important to choose a medically qualified technician to administer IPL as there is a risk of burning.
LED is known as a pain-free treatment that yields immediate results. It’s known to be the most gentle light therapy, particularly if you’re treated with a device emitting longer wave lengths. There is no downtime from LED, and you’ll walk out of the clinic and be able to immediately return to all normal activities.
With rejuvenation procedures some skin preparation with cosmeceuticals (AHA/BHA blend and/or Vitamin A) as well as daily sunscreen can maximise results. Ensure the area is not sun tanned before your treatment, and avoid excessive sun exposure within the 48 hours leading up to your treatment.
Redness immediately after laser treatment is normal due to the heat effect. This is minimised by the immediate use of a cold pack after treatment. There can be some swelling in the first 48 hours and we do recommend sleeping with an extra pillow for the first 2 nights after laser treatments. LED rarely causes any after effects, and has no downtime at all for most patients.
Avoid excess sun exposure after any photorejuvenation treatment. A customised skincare program, combined with the regular daily use of sunscreen, greatly helps to maintain the results of clinic treatments.
Before and after images are presented purely as a reference point of the results that can be achieved. Everyone is unique and outcomes will vary and realistic expectations need to be discussed on a case by case basis.
