First of all, Energist medical group is world renowned, their 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.
- Thinning of the epidermis and dermis
- Coarse skin texture
- 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. Hence, this safe and simple technique improves:
- Skin texture
- Skin colour
- Reducing pore size
- Fine lines Reduced
Furthermore, 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 are reduced because 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.
