A photofacial is a generic term for a skin treatment that uses some form of light-based technology. The two main types of photofacials rely on LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense pulsed light) to treat skin woes. Generally, when people refer to photofacials, they’re talking about IPL photofacials, which are also called intense pulsed light therapy, photo rejuvenation, BBL therapy, or broadband light therapy.
IPL photofacial is a noninvasive, non ablative treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to improve such skin conditions as fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, age spots, rosacea, port-wine stains, and facial veins. It may also help treat mild to moderate acne and stretch marks, and it spurs collagen production.
My commitment to being up to date with the very latest techniques and methods is one which has seen me attend over twenty seminars and successfully complete numerous training courses in non surgical cosmetic procedures. All of these through accredited and internationally renowned institutions. These include safe practice, basic life support and infection control.
Ensuring client safety is a number one priority. To this end I am licensed, insured and trained in complications and medical emergencies. I am also an active member of the Association of Cosmetic Practitioners of Britain.
