Due to its broad spectrum of wavelengths, Epique Experience advanced IPL technology has the unique capacity to treat multiple signs of photo ageing:
The treatment is tailored to the customer’s individual condition and skin type, offering a personalised and targeted treatment plan.
Almost any area of the body can be treated. The most common area is the face however other areas such as the neck, décolleté, hands, arms and legs are commonly treated as well.
Number and frequency of sessions
Although you will see an improvement after the very first treatment, a series of up to 3 skin rejuvenation treatments, at intervals of 4 weeks, are generally recommended for optimal results. Multiple treatments are necessary because the skin rejuvenation process is gentle and non-invasive (no skin breakdown). By dividing the IPL program into several treatments it provides gradual, natural-looking improvement with no downtime and very low discomfort or risk.
As every customer is unique, your first visit to Epique Experience will include an initial consultation, where one of our therapists will discuss your requirements, provide an explanation of our treatments and answer any questions you may have. Your experienced therapist will analyse your skin with a special UV light, assessing specific skin concerns, and ask you questions on your medical and lifestyle history, including any medications you may be taking, to make sure you are a suitable candidate for IPL skin rejuvenation. A small skin patch test will be performed to determine the optimal settings for treatment and a customised treatment programme will be designed for your individual condition and skin type.
Your therapist will provide you with a list of important advice to follow before, during and after your IPL treatments and specific skin care instructions to maximise and prolong the skin rejuvenating effects. Read Epique Wellness IPL PRE AND POST-TREATMENT ADVICE.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL skin rejuvenation provides women and men of all ages with a gentle, safe and effective solution to reduce the visible signs of photo ageing and restore a more youthful and radiant appearance to their skin.
How IPL Skin Rejuvenation works
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) removes sun damage in the superficial layers of the skin, whilst simultaneously delivering thermal energy to the deeper layers to stimulate regeneration of the skin. Controlled pulses of light are delivered to the skin surface and absorbed by brown pigment (melanin) in age spots, freckles and uneven pigmentation or red pigment (haemoglobin) in spider veins and diffuse redness. The target is heated up and destroyed, whilst leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. At the same time the light pulses stimulate the production of collagen beneath the skin surface, which plumps out the skin, softening fines lines and wrinkles and smoothing skin texture.
When you come in for your IPL skin rejuvenation treatment you will first be treated to an express facial to prepare the skin. The therapist will then apply a gel, which allows optimum transmission of the IPL light and you will be given protective eyewear to protect your eyes from the bright light during the treatment. The IPL hand piece is placed onto the skin and flashes of light are delivered as the hand piece is moved over the area. At the end of the treatment the area will be cleaned and a moisturiser and sunscreen applied.
Epique Experience’s IPL skin rejuvenation offers a comfortable, virtually pain-free alternative to standard laser treatments. Customers often describe the feeling as a tingling or warm sensation (like the gentle flicking of a rubber band).
IPL Skin rejuvenation is a quick and simple procedure. The duration of the sessions varies according to the area being treated e.g. 15-40 minutes for a full face and 1 hour for a full face and décolleté.
After your treatment, no downtime is required so you can immediately reapply make-up and return to your routine daily activities.
You may experience some warmness or slight redness (like mild sunburn) in the treated area but this typically goes within a few hours. Brown spots or freckles that were treated may initially go darker and then form a light film / crust (dirty-look) as they come to the surface and start to flake off, from 7 to 14 days after treatment.
You will start to see improvements from about 10 days following your first skin rejuvenation treatment and results will continue to improve up to 3 months after each treatment, as IPL stimulates your own natural collagen to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin. Over the course of 3 treatments your skin will look and feel firmer, smoother and softer and have a wonderful new colour, even texture and uniform tone. The end result is a younger, healthier and more radiant appearance to the skin.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation Benefits
There are an overwhelming number of treatment options available today to improve the skin’s appearance. Facials although pampering, provide only temporary skin benefits and visible results are negligible. Laser resurfacing, deep chemical peels and dermabrasion are invasive and painful, and send clients into lengthy hiding, as they wait for redness, weeping and swelling to subside. Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive for clients who simply want to rejuvenate their appearance without prolonged downtime from healing. The trend today is towards non-invasive, no downtime treatments that deliver noticeable results.
At Epique Experience we use the very latest generation of IPL technology from Europe, clinically proven to result in a significant, visible improvement in sun-damaged skin after a series of up to three skin rejuvenation treatments. It is one of the only IPL systems with independent scientific results published in recognised medical journals.
Epique Experience’s IPL skin rejuvenation treatments are also gentle, non-invasive and virtually pain-free, resulting in gradual, natural looking improvements, that require no recovery downtime. It is a versatile skin treatment, capable of effectively treating a wide range of skin conditions. Our advanced IPL system is calibrated according to each customer’s individual requirements to achieve optimal results whilst ensuring safety and comfort.
