The Lynton Excelight is a certified medical device used for a variety of cosmetic and medical purposes that is largely recognised as the MOST clinically effective IPL by many dermatologists and the NHS. It utilises intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to deliver controlled pulses of light energy to the targeted area of the skin.
IPL can target and improve the appearance of various skin concerns such as age spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmentation irregularities, and vascular lesions (e.g. spider veins, broken capillaries).
IPL can be used to treat various vascular lesions, blemishes, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, and hemangiomas.
IPL devices with specific settings may also provide some skin tightening effects by stimulating collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and firmness.
IPL can help reduce the redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea, a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness and sensitivity.
What is the procedure for light-assisted skin rejuvenation?
Light pulses are emitted to target discoloration (brown and red lesions) in order to achieve a more youthful, even complexion. Furthermore, light energy activates fibroblast cells, resulting in enhanced collagen and elastin formation. This enhances skin texture by smoothing out lumps and bumps and minimising the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
To protect your eyes from the strong light produced by the system, you must wear goggles throughout treatment. During treatment, you will hear the machine buzz and feel a “hot flick” or light heat sensation.
How many sessions will I need?
Results can be seen after just a few treatments. However, a minimum of 3 and up to 6 sessions, are recommended depending on your skin concerns. Treatments are carried out every 4 to 6 weeks. Following your course of treatments, top-up sessions are performed as required, usually once or twice a year.
