IPL Hair Removal

Price on Application

IPL offers a long lasting and effective treatment for the removal of unwanted hair on the face and the body. A patch test is required before the treatment along with an in depth consultation with your therapist.
IPL works by light being absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair causing it to heat up and the follicle to rupture. The IPL crystal is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The sensation felt by the client is likened to a warm elastic band being snapped against the skin.

A course of IPL treatments is usually required at 4 - 8 weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. Treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs

Intense Pulsed Light systems release precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin.

4 Stage Illumi Facial

1. Cleanse
The first step in achieving clear, healthy, radiant skin will involve a deep cleanse, with
your Illumi Facial practitioner using a specialist formulation to remove any impurities.

2. Tri-Fruit Acid Peel
Following a deep cleanse, a unique Tri-Fruit Acid Lynton Fruit Peel will be applied to your skin, for any¬where between 3 - 10 minutes. This peel resurfaces skin texture and decongests pores, priming the skin ready for stage 3 of Illumi Facial.

3. Lynton IPL
Post fruit peel, your skin will be at its optimum condition for the application of the award-winning Lynton Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. This works by both stimulating collagen and targeting any discolouration on your skin, e.g. freckles, pigmentation, vascular breakouts, general redness. In most cases, the results are instant, providing you with dramatically clearer, firmer skin.

4. Hydrate & Protect
To help maximise the results you're of your Illumi Facial treatment, a trio of specialist serums will be applied to your skin post-IPL, helping soothe, regenerate and protect your skin.

Pigmented Lesions

Price on Application

Specific lesions such as age spots on the hands or face, pigmentation and freckles can be targeted resulting in a more uniform complexion.
The light absorbed by the pigmented lesion is converted to heat, destroying the excess melanocytes. Following treatment the lesion generally darkens and forms a thin micro crust (similar to a scab) peeling off within a week or so to leave the treated area without pigmentation. The excess pigmentation is removed through the normal cutaneous cellular turnover by phagocytosis.

Thread Veins

Price On Application

Thread veins can be treated with IPL light targeting absorption peaks in hemoglobin and oxy-haemoglobin. This predominantly targets blood vessels, delivering sufficient energy to thermocoagulate the entire vessel whilst causing minimal damage to the surrounding skin. Following treatment the damaged vessels are absorbed by th body and little or no trace of the initial lesion remains.
