Why Skin Rejuvenation Is Your Spring Solution

Why Skin Rejuvenation Is Your Spring Solution

What is it?

The visibility of apparent signs of ageing such as pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, liver spots, broken capillaries, wrinkles and redness in particular can be reduced by using the safe and effective treatment of IPL Skin Rejuvenation. Otherwise known as photorejuvenation, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Skin Rejuvenation utilises pulsed light, which targets darker pigments, in order to smoothly penetrate the skin.

How is it beneficial? 

IPL Skin Rejuvenation provides a safe and effective treatment that's gentle on the skin and by procedural comparison, is a relatively basic process. During treatment, the pulses of intense light effectively target darker pigmentation, to then break and scatter each pigment. Following this, the pigmentation shrinks, and can sometimes even disappear. And regarding wrinkles and fine lines, the heat produced from IPL actually motivates your skin's ability to naturally generate elastin and collagen. Thus through this treatment, healthier, tighter and younger-looking skin is achieved. 

How does it work? 

In this video, Chelsea, a professional skin therapist at Brazilian Beauty, demonstrates how IPL Skin Rejuvenation works by performing the treatment on her client Julie.

What should I do to prepare?

First, you will need to have a "test patch" done to determine whether or not you're suitable for treatment, by way of also assuring successful results. If eligible, your first session will be booked for two weeks later. Prior to commencing IPL Skin Rejuvenation, which depending on the targeted area, may require between 6-8 treatments, it's highly recommended that you avoid the sun for six weeks. Wearing at least SPF30+ sunscreen everyday will keep your skin safe, while you should steer clear of fragranced or possibly skin-irritable products for three days. Here, you can view how many sessions are typically required for fine lines and wrinkles, small and large capillaries, and pigmentation and age spots, where duration varies.

Awesome, let's do this! So, where is this treatment available? 

IPL Skin Rejuvenation is available at MacArthur Central's Brazilian Beauty, part of Australia's Leading Beauty Salon Franchise, located on the Lower Ground, open 6 days a week.
