None of us are getting any younger, the saying goes. But when it comes to your skin and looks, it is possible to overcome a tired-looking complexion, whether it's caused by ageing, sun damage, stress or other issues.
Such rejuvenation becomes even more valuable as the days get longer and summer approaches. From a literal perspective, we start wearing less clothing and showing off our bodies: we see each other's faces in bright sunlight rather than wrapped up in scarves and hats on gloomy days.
Spring and summer can also make us feel more alive and youthful, which can in turn make us do what we can to be sure our skin looks and feels just as healthy and energetic as our bodies and minds do.
Brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles can make people look older than they actually are. Acne, rosacea and birthmarks can also make sufferers incredibly self-conscious and affect confidence and self-esteem.
Intense pulsed light treatment can soften wrinkles, rejuvenate skin and also be used to effectively treat skin imperfections. In fact, skin rejuvenation treatment's can prove so effective that only a few top-ups per year might be needed to maintain results after initial treatment plan.

How Intense Pulsed Light Works
IPL technology is a class of laser. It generates intense bursts of light. These cause heat damage to dermal tissue without harming or removing the outer epidermal layers of the skin. The body’s natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks. The appearance of any skin imperfection is then visibly reduced. A fully trained therapist who undergoes continuous training will perform your IPL treatment. A cooling gel is first applied to the area to be treated and you will be asked to wear protective eyewear. A state-of-the-art IPL machine is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that destroy the pigment or vessel of the imperfection without damaging surrounding tissue. To ensure there is no damage, we only allow fully trained and qualified therapist to perform this procedure. It’s pain-free but you may experience a slight tingling sensation and have some redness after for an hour or so.
How long does it take?
Each treatment takes around 30 minutes and you will be able to leave the clinic immediately after your session. Your personal treatment plan put together by your Therapist may recommend a series of treatments to achieve the best results. Around 6 treatments at 3 week intervals is usually required. We also recommend a top-up treatment once or twice a year to maintain your rejuvenated skin.
Skin appears fresher, rejuvenated and younger-looking even after just a few treatments. The benefits of a full course can last up to a year. The appearance of broken blood vessels, skin blemishes, rosacea, birthmarks, sun damage and pigmentation marks are reduced. Visible results can be dramatic. Increased collagen production tones and improves elasticity of the skin to combat fine lines and wrinkles.
At Central Coast Laser Clinic we will perform a full skin analysis and advise you of an after care program to ensure you achieve the best possible results from your treatments.
