IPL Photo Treatments for Skin Rejuvenation
Lynton Lumina IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) is suitable for people who wish to achieve a more even skin tone and may have moderate to mild signs of sun damage and photo-ageing. This IPL treatment creates a more youthful, flawless glowing appearance even without makeup.
Skin Rejuvenation treatments offer a solution for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as:
- Brown spots, sun spots, freckles (pigmentation/hyperpigmentation)
- Red Veins, thread Veins, spider veins
- Redness, rosacea and uneven skin texture
- Lines and wrinkles
The benefit of skin rejuvenation with laser and IPL is the relatively small risk of adverse effects and very little “down time” which enables you to return to your daily activities immediately.
The main aim of skin rejuvenation with IPL and lasers is to stimulate and promote new collagen formation and to induce the healing response of the skin.
At your initial consultation your practitioner will discuss any concerns you may have and help to achieve realistic expectations. Your practitioner will perform a small patch test on each area that will be treated. The treatment itself will feel warm and mildly snappy (imagine snapping an elastic band against the skin)
Treatment sessions for general skin rejuvenation typically take 30 minutes and a course of 6 treatments is recommended to see the best results.

Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration know as hyperpigmentation (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. The rapid absorption of light energy heats up the melanin which breaks down the cells. Over the next following days the pigment will simply flake away.
In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. If an Nd:YAG laser is used the skin will also become firmer, tighter and the appearance of scarring can be reduced.
Hyperpigmentation may be caused by a number of factors such as sundamage, acne, acne scarring, eczema, pregnancy, hormonal changes, medications, excema scarring or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The pigmentation/dark spots can appear on the face or body. We offer IPL hyperpigmentation treatment for face, whole body areas or even single just single small dark spots.
