PIGMENTATION

Pigmentation can be caused by a number of factors such as exposure to daylight, hormonal fluctuations typically brought on by pregnancy or the contraceptive pill, thyroid problems, or post-inflammatory pigmentation (think acne scarring). At Alchemist Aesthetics we use IPL to break up and lighten pigmentation to create a more even skin tone.

CONTINUED...

IPL can be used on both the face and body and is attracted to dark areas in your skin, making it extremely effective for lighter skin types. As it hits the dark spots, the light shatters the pigmentation which encourages it to lift to the surface before gradually lightening over a number of treatments as your surface cells renew.

A more even skin tone can be achieved after just a single treatment, however we would recommend a course to fully lift & lighten darker pigmentation. Depending on the depth of your pigmentation, your practitioner might prescribe a course of skin peels to work in conjunction with the IPL to improve really stubborn dark spots.

THREAD VEINS

Also known as spider veins, they usually appear across the nose and cheek area and are often difficult to cover up on a daily basis.

CONTINUED...

It isn’t 100% clear as to why we get these veins, but it’s thought that heat, exposure to the sun, alcohol and hormonal changes along with hereditary factors are triggers.

IPL heats the area, damaging blood vessel walls, shrinking the targeted veins and making them disappear. Once they’ve broken down, the body drains them away in the lymphatic system.

SKIN REJUVENATION

IPL is a safe, non-invasive way to improve the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and any other signs of premature ageing, ideal for treating the face, neck and chest. With no down-time, appointments can be fitted into your lunch hour, helping to revive dull, tired skin around a busy schedule.

CONTINUED...

When used to target the signs of premature ageing, the treatment works by warming the skin, tricking your fibroblasts into kick-starting collagen production. Collagen is essentially the building blocks of skin, the scaffolding responsible for keeping skin plump and firm. This causes plumping of fine lines and wrinkles whilst improving your skin tone as you progress through your course of treatments.

A consultation and a patch test with your practitioner will be required assess your skin to determine if IPL is the right treatment for you. Depending on your treatment goals, we may recommend IPL in combination with other treatments such as peels and home skincare to enhance results further.
