Here are a few frequently asked questions about Skin Tightening:

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
Pulsed light systems use hand-held flash lamps that emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed in the skin. The treatment stimulates the growth of collagen and gives the skin a fresh and youthful look.

How does light-based technology work?
Light-based technology is based on a method called "selective photothermolysis", which works by selective destruction of a specific target without damaging surrounding tissue. When treating textural complaints such as fine wrinkles and large pores, the light stimulate the growth of collagen which makes the skin glow. New collagen production means skin feels firmer and tauter, with a more youthful appearance.

Are Skin Tightening treatments painful?
No. During the procedure, a slight, momentary stinging sensation like a quick "snap" may be felt, but not pain. The cooling tip significantly decreases discomfort.

Are Skin Tightening treatments safe for any age?
All pulsed-light treatments are non-invasive and safe for any age, with minimum side-effects.

How many treatments are required?
Although results are already apparent after the very first treatment, a minimum of 3 treatment sessions are recommended in order to reach visible clear results.

How long does a Skin Tightening treatment take?
Around 30 to 60 minutes depending on the technology used.

Am I a good candidate for Skin Tightening treatments?
The best way to know if Skin Tightening is right for you is to come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our Medi-Beauty therapists. IPL is a safe option for clients because of the non-invasive nature of the treatments. Because the pulsed light is attracted to red and brown pigments, IPL is not recommended for those with a dark complexion as treatment may result in hypo-pigmentation (uneven loss of colour in the skin).

Is there any specific care I should be taking of my skin while having IPL treatments?
Yes. It is essential that clients administer a strict regimen of sun protection as sun exposure can cause increased inflammation and pigmentation in treated area. Your Medi-Beauty therapist will also inform you of any and all care instructions during your complimentary consultation.
