IPL Photorejuvenation - is the most effective treatment for facial redness, flushing, broken veins, Rosacea, pigmentation and sun damage.
Most people have beautiful clear fair skin when they are young. But even young people with delicate complexions can be prone to skin blemishes, Rosacea, pigmentation and broken capillaries. What’s more sun worshipping on hot holidays abroad can cause sun damage on all ages of skin. Here at Woodford Medical we can help to restore the natural, clear, youthful beauty of the skin with IPL Photo-rejuvenation also known as Fotofacial.
IPL Photorejuvenation is generally recognised as the most effective treatment for facial redness, flushing, broken veins, Rosacea, pigmentation and sun damage. A welcome addition to this, IPL will stimulate collagen production resulting in a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in skin texture.
We use the latest technology developed by a leading US dermatologist and introduced to the UK by Dr Mervyn Patterson and Dr Hilary Allan in the 90’s. This technology is known as the Palomar Starlux and it uses a scientifically designed and cooled Max G handpiece to deliver accurate shots of visible white light to target the broken veins and pigmentation. It is recognised industry wide as producing the most impressive results for skin on the face and body.

Prior to the treatment you will receive a full consultation with one of our Aesthetic Therapists. They will design a bespoke treatment programme specifically for your needs, targeting all your concerns. They will use the Visia Skin Analysis system to examine your complexion. This can identify certain microscopic conditions, which are not visible to the human eye, but can present themselves as major issues in the future.
The Visia System deploys multi-spectral imaging to examine sun damage, wrinkles, pore size, spots, blemishes, skin tone, clarity and broken capillaries. What it also does it to compare and contrast your skin with what is considered the bench mark for others of the same age and ethnicity.
Once our therapist has established the condition of your skin, they will then proceed with the most appropriate treatment plan. A course of Fotofacials is usually recommended to restore skin clarity and rejuvenate the dermis. It is a great opportunity to return your skin to the smooth clear and blemish free state of your youth. And the treatment will reap the same clarifying benefits on other areas such as chest neck and back of hands.
If you want your skin to regain the glow of youth or if it is uneven, red and flushed, this versatile treatment could be the answer for you. Contact us today for a consultation or click here to request more information.
A new treatment, highly recommended for Rosacea sufferers, acne sufferers and those wishing to maximise the effects or photo-rejuvenation of their skin, is the Fotopeel. This treatment combines a IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment with an Epionce lite refresh peel enhancing the effects of both treatments and giving results that are better than ever.
Where is this treatment available?
IPL Photorejuvenation treatments are available in all our clinics.
A couple of months post treatment and my skin has remained glowing with less redness and appears more even.
The difference was almost immediate. Straight away I could see a reduction in the redness and as I continued treatment it continued to reduce my flushing until it disappeared altogether. I no longer worry about drinking alcoholic drinks or being in a hot room and I can now enjoy being in the sun with SPF50 on my skin and I see no sign of the returning veins.
