Skin tightening / IPL FAQ's

How does IPL work?

IPL: intense pulsed light, will heat up structures such as superficial pigmentation (freckles/brown spots) and capillaries (diffused redness) to cauterize and eventually reduce their appearance. The Elos™ skin tightening device uses radio frequency to heat the tissue and gently stimulate a collagen response which over time will firm the skin. It is used as a focus treatment to target jowl, mouth and eye areas.

What is the skin tightening / IPL combo at The Face Place like?

The treatment involves a layered approach in a single session, starting with the Sublime skin tightening, followed by a full face IPL treatment. A minimum of three treatments are required at monthly intervals. Further Skin Tightening treatments may be required depending on your skin condition.

It is essential that your skin is properly prepared with Vitamin A and antioxidants before starting IPL, and for best results, you will continue these after the treatment, to reduce the chance of pigment building up again. If you are interested in this Sublime/IPL combo, you will need to be on active skin care (for at least 4 weeks) or come in for a skin assessment so that we can get your skin prepped.


NB: IPL is not suitable for very dark skin.

Note: You will need to be an existing client who is on medical grade skin care for at least 4 weeks before having this treatment. If you are not on medical grade skin care, your first step is to book in for a skin assessment
