Now you can safely and quickly fade age spots, spider veins, rosacea, and blotchy skin due to sun damage with the revolutionary IPL elōs™ technology. Only elōs combines radio frequency and light energies to gently and precisely target problem areas, as an advanced form of medical IPL. The end result is clearer, more youthful-looking skin.
To ensure the best possible results we follow a 5-step tailored plan:
You must have anInitial Skin Consultation before proceeding with your first treatment – regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment.
We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
If you are already a skin client with us and have been using medical-grade skincare, your first step is the IPL Test Patch appointment.
Some of your age spots and pigmentation will darken. After around 7-10 days these darkened spots will flake off leaving a clearer, more youthful appearance. Skin will appear more luminous after 10 days and redness will reduce between 4-6 weeks.
You will often see significant change after just one treatment. Over the course of 2-5 treatment sessions, most people see a gradual and continual improvement of their skin tone. The total number of required sessions varies depending on the condition of your skin.
During your initial light consultation, your Medical Skin Therapist will recommend a schedule for maximum results.
Individual experience varies. Some people describe the sensation as uncomfortable and like the flicking of a rubber band.
Treatment is safe and effective for light to olive skin types. Darker skin types may not be appropriate for this treatment.
Generally, after your consultation, each procedure takes around 30 – 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
Our Medical Skin Therapists always do a test patch prior to any treatment to determine the best settings for your skin and reduce the risk of any side effects. Expect to have a patch test at your initial consultation, and return for treatment anywhere from a few days to a week later. Winter is a great time to have IPL treatments, as you should be out of the sun a month prior to and after treatment. This is because sun exposure can increase the risk of side effects or pigment coming back. For your safety we stop providing IPL treatments from the start of summer. You should wear your recommended sun protection every day and keep out of direct sun.
Note: You will need to be an existing client who is on medical-grade skincare for at least 4 weeks before having this treatment. If you are not on medical-grade skincare, your first step is to book in for an Initial Skin Consultation to begin your ‘prep’. If you are an existing skin client already using medical-grade skincare, your first step is an IPL Test Patch appointment.
