VPL Skin treatments

Skin Rejuvenation Solutions

Energist medical group’s world renowned IPL/VPL and laser technology is capable of multiple treatments including skin rejuvenation solutions.

As we age, the effects of prolonged sun exposure, poor diet, pollution and smoking all take their toll on our skin. This is characterised by a thinning of the epidermis and dermis, coarse skin texture, wrinkling, and changes in pigmentation. Collagen and elastin, the tough fibrous proteins present in our skin giving it its texture and elasticity, are damaged and their rate of reproduction slows.

Skin rejuvenation treatments involve the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL/VPL) or lasers which stimulate collagen and elastin production deep within the dermis, increasing skin elasticity and strength, making the skin look softer and smoother. This safe, simple technique improves skin texture and colour, whilst reducing pore size, fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin rejuvenation can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté area and on hands, resulting in dramatic improvements in the appearance of the skin.

 

How it works

Fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores

Collagen and elastin are the substances in our bodies that keep our skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen and elastin, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enlarged pore size.

Energist Medical Group offer a range of treatment modalities for safe and effective skin rejuvenation.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Variable Pulsed Light (VPL™)

The carefully filtered yellow light emitted from Energist IPL and VPL™ technologies is absorbed by certain structures within the skin. The resultant momentary heating stimulates cells in the body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. The new collagen moves outwards to the skin’s surface resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
