Frequently Asked Questions

How does the treatment work?

The treatment of sun-damaged skin makes your skin look smoother by removing age spots, other uneven pigmentation and diffuse redness. Your skin texture is also improved, and many women report that it becomes easier to apply makeup. Facial treatments are most popular, but all parts of the body can be treated. To do this, short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light (called Selective Waveband Technology) are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels and melanin in the age spots. When cells containing a lot of melanin or haemoglobin are treated, the target heats up and is destroyed within a few thousandths of one second.

Can I be treated?

Treatments are most efficient in patients with light skin who are not suntanned at the time of the treatment. If your skin is less tanned, the contrast between the age spots/blood vessels and background colour of the skin is greater, making treatment easier. However, we have pre-programmed settings for different skin types that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.

How long does the treatment take?

A full-face treatment takes less than 20 minutes. You should see an improvement after the first treatment, but up to 4 treatments may be required to achieve the full effect.

Does the treatment hurt?

No anaesthetics are required, and many patients describe the treatment as practically pain-free, like a flick from a rubber band followed by a sensation similar to the feeling of gentle warmth after a day on the beach.

Do I need to take special precautions?

The light used is completely safe, visible light. It is, however, important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning products) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb more light, which makes treatment less effective and less comfortable. Generally, no special care is necessary after treatment, but people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying a cold compress (a cold damp cloth) to the face immediately after treatment. After treatment, you should avoid sun exposure, even if there is no sign of inflammation on the treated area. Use sun protection (minimum SPF 30).

What can I expect?

You may notice that the skin looks a little “dirty” for a few days following treatment. After that you will find that your skin looks smoother and fresher. You might choose to have some annual maintenance treatments in order to keep your youthful appearance.
