IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) Skin Rejuvenation at The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa in Bishop’s Stortford
What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
It is no wonder why IPL Skin Rejuvenation is one of our most popular treatments at our skin clinic and spa in Bishop’s Stortford. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Skin Rejuvenation has a multitude of benefits, including the enhancement of the skin’s natural appearance, leaving it looking younger and fresher. It successfully treats skin problems including;
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Broken capillaries
- Age spots
The IPL system regenerates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen over a period of time. This improves the skin’s elasticity, texture and can aid in reducing wrinkles. The IPL technology generates bursts of red or blue light; light shines on the skin and penetrates the tissue. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue leaving the skin looking younger and fresher.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation at our Bishop’s Stortford Skin Clinic & Spa can also be used to treat various skin conditions including rosacea. It can treat cracked thread veins and broken blood vessels in the face and elsewhere on the body, and it is very effective at removing unwanted hair. See IPL Hair Reduction.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation Results
Dramatic results can often be seen within a relatively short period of time although a course of treatments is usually recommended. Some other fantastic benefits include;
- IPL can improve skin tone and texture, lift and hydrate skin and even out pigmentation. It makes the skin firmer and smoother and reduces lines and wrinkles
- The IPL machine used at The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa & Wellness Salon comes with a range of filters and levels that are treatment-specific, which with an in-depth consultation, mean that we deliver an accurate and individually tailored treatment according to your skin type.

- 1 session is required every 4 – 6 weeks

- Each treatment lasts 20 minutes, depending on the area being treated

Possible Side Effects with IPL Treatments
As the Intense Pulsed Light is passed over the skin there may be a very slight pinging sensation, like that caused by an elastic band. A patch test is carried out prior to treatment taking place and this will help you understand what the IPL treatment feels like.
Side effects are rare but can include slight redness and swelling of the treated area, blistering or bruising and hyper or hypopigmentation. The redness and swelling generally disappears within a few hours of treatment, and the remaining side effects are very rare. Your Urban Spa therapist will carry out a full assessment before any treatment takes place to alleviate any risks.
