Laser & IPL Skin Treatments
There are two types of non-invasive surgical techniques which are used for a variety of skin conditions – laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. The Specialist Skin Clinic is a major provider of Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatments in the UK. Both Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments direct a burst of light onto the surface of the skin, targeted only at the area of the skin requiring treatment.
Laser Skin Treatments
Laser Treatments are excellent for the removal of tattoos and other pigmentation as the laser beam is able to break up the tattoo pigment into much smaller fragments which allows the body to slowly get rid of the pigment . For hair reduction the laser or IPL light energy is absorbed by hair follicles producing sufficient heat to damage the hair growth stem cells and prevent them from producing new hair.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) Skin Treatments
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) uses broadband light, allowing for the successful treatment of skin conditions such as thread veins and skin blemishes, on different areas of the skin. One of the advantages of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is that is able to treat large areas requiring treatment effectively and very quickly. Both Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Treatments are utilised within dermatology to treat a variety of skin conditions, for cosmetic anti-ageing treatments and especially as an effective treatment for hair removal.
