The four main technologies involved in performing skin treatments are Intense Pulse Light (IPL), Laser, Radio Frequency (RF) and Infra Red (IR) radiation.
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.
Erbium fractional laser
This laser technology emits two patterns of multi-dot beams, which peels off the superficial skin layer. The body’s natural healing process creates new tissue resulting in younger looking skin.
Radio frequency (RF)
Radio Frequency technology uses multipolar sound waves emited by a handpiece that heat collagen fibres thus contracting and tightening the skin.
Infrared is a light based technology that creates focused heat, thus contracting collagen and tightens the skin, without damaging surrounding tissue.
