About IPL Rejuvenation in Perth
These IPL devices will emit a broad spectrum of the light energy. The initial spectrum emitted is incoherent. Filters built into the device are used in blocking out the unwanted wavelengths based on the tissue being targeted during Perth IPL photorejuvenation treatments. Based on these tissues, there are various filters which can be used in treating conditions such as unwanted hair, facial vessels and sunspots amongst others. Even though they are safe lasers, IPL devices must still be operated by qualified physicians who are experienced in the administration of the best IPL photorejuvenation Perth treatments.
All human beings undergo a process called photo aging where wrinkles, brown spots or other skin blemishes begin to appear due to exposure to sunshine or the gradual process of aging. The rate at which these occur varies from one person to another due to genetics or the varied lifestyles that they lead.
In IPL photorejuvenation Perth procedures, light is used in order to rejuvenate the skin. This form of laser treatment is non-invasive and has been around close to two decades. Over the last few years, the technology has improved considerably and it now has great efficacy when applied to rejuvenate the skin. Perth IPL photorejuvenation can be applied anywhere on the skin surface such as the face, the chest and arms amongst many other areas.
Some areas where IPL photorejuvenation in Perth can be applied include the following:
- Clearing of brown spots as well as freckles which result from sun damage
- Used in treating the broken or dilated capillaries on the skin surface

Before undertaking IPL photorejuvenation Perth treatments, there are certain prerequisites that you need to fulfill. Avoid strong skin treatments and excessive exposure to sunlight on your skin surface at least two weeks prior to the treatments. The sun exposure will increase the dark spots on your skin surface and these will absorb extra laser light and reduce the efficacy of the laser procedure.
IPL treatments are generally carried out with handheld applicators which are placed on the skin surface before being activated in order to emit short pulses of light. The red or brown spots on the skin will absorb this pulse light from the laser device. The applicator will be moved from one spot to another until all of these have been treated. The procedure only takes a few minutes to treat the face and even the chest and since there are very few side effects, you do not have to worry about any potential downtimes. After the initial treatment, which will be effective on 80% of the spots or lines, you may need to undergo another touch-up treatment procedure to target those spots which were not eliminated during the first treatment.
