Pigmented lesions such as age spots or freckles can be successfully lightened or removed with IPL treatment from Hannah's IPL & Laser Clinic. All of these treatments are non-invasive, suitable for both the face and body, and will result in a more even skin tone.

Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and over exposure to the sun or sunbeds but we are also able to successfully use IPL treatment for longer term conditions such as pigmented birthmarks, excessive freckling or melasma that is associated with pregnancy or hormones.

The results and the length of treatment required depend on the nature of the pigmentation but for example, a simple birth mark or over freckled nose could be removed in around 3-4 sessions of IPL treatment. We will be able to give a better idea when you call us for a free consultation. After we agree a treatment plan, you will be required to take a compulsary patch test before starting your treatment with Hannah's IPL & Laser Clinic.

IPL Treatment - Safe, Effective and Affordable but how does it work?

The AW3® treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood. Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique has the name “Selective Photothermolysis”.

The visible light produced by the AW3® systems are carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissues.

The AW3® Skin Rejuvenation system will treat diffuse redness and pigmented disorders caused by sun-damage and also improve the skin texture.The AW3® Rejuvenation procedure will additionally treat larger (individually visible vessels) telangiectasias.

Both Photo Rejuvenation and Skin Rejuvenation are quick and simple procedures that do not interfere with your normal daily routine. Both are aimed at repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck chest and hands.
