SkinBase Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a cosmetic skin treatment used for hair reduction and advanced therapies, such as acne, vascular lesions and photo rejuvenation.

IPL uses wavelengths of light to remove unwanted hair across the face and body, as well as minimising signs of ageing, reducing the appearance of scars, and improving acne.

SkinBase IPL

The skin is our body’s largest and most complex organ, and it comes with its fair share of problems; acne, lines, wrinkles, hypo-pigmentation, hyper-pigmentation, the list goes on. So what can you do to help combat these issues?

The SkinBase™ IPL  uses intense light therapy to help combat these issues without the need for more costly or time consuming techniques such as surgery. Our clients have achieved some fantastic results in as little as two to three treatments.

What to Expect During an IPL Treatment

During an IPL treatment, your SkinBase therapist uses a combination of a flash handset that emits light pulses, and a unique cryo-cooling handset. The cooling handset is first used on the skin to prep the area for treatment, and ensure maximum comfort. Then, the flash handset is used to target the light energy into the skin. You will feel a cold sensation while the cooling handset is being used, and a warmer sensation when the flash handset is used. It should not be painful, and is often described as similar to an elastic band snapping gently onto the skin.

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
