“healthier looking skin with an improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature ageing”
We hear from Dr Stolte who tells us: “I believe the key to healthy looking skin is to combine a customised at-home regimen with powerful in-clinic treatments and targeted skincare solutions. The result is healthier looking skin with an improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature ageing.”
Treatments range from advanced skin and hair care treatments to cosmetic injectables and non-surgical skin rejuvenation using medical grade technology. As one of the leading aesthetic skin and hair clinics in the south west, MEDfacials is constantly striving to bring you the most up-to-date treatments and has recently introduced its Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment.
So what is Intense Pulsed Light? IPL is the process of using specific wavelengths of light to provide a range of aesthetic and therapeutic treatments. It can be used for permanent hair reduction, photo rejuvenation, acne and vascular lesions. The MEDfacials IPL also features a unique cooling handset, providing the most comfortable treatment experience possible.
There are many benefits of using IPL: it works by targeting structures within the skin such as melanin, blood, and water in collagen with wavelengths of light to break down the structure and improve the appearance of the skin. The light pulses also stimulate collagen production which floods to the area, plumping the skin and reducing wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Skin problems that benefit from IPL include acne and acne scarring, sun damage, fine lines and forehead wrinkles, as well as uneven skin tone, pigmentation and skin blemishes, to name a few.
Unlike many treatments, the MEDfacials IPL is non-invasive as well as highly effective, meaning you can return to work immediately following treatment, so there’s no need to take any additional time out to complete your course. To find out more, get in touch with the MEDfacials team who will be more than happy to talk you through your options.
On 14th and 15th September MEDfacials will be offering free IPL patch tests worth £25 for readers, just quote ‘Cornwall Living‘ when you call to book your appointment.
