Restore and Rejuvenate Your Skin with Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

Sometimes referred to as photo rejuvenation or a photo facial, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)is an intense, pulsed low-fluence (or density) light which rejuvenates the skin in a non-abrasive way. Scientific developments in IPL have been focused on improving the treatment to use lights that do not harm the skin but instead promote a visible improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and dark patches.

Combat Skin Conditions

IPL can be tuned to help with a variety of skin issues; from flushed/red skin, to certain types of blemishes, through to sun damage as well as lines and wrinkles.

Sun damage is the main cause of hyperpigmentation on areas of the body which are most visible and exposed to the sun. It manifests as dark spots and blemishes on your hands, neck and face and not just in the form of cute freckles.

CoLaz IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

Despite the name, IPL uses light therapy, and not lasers to emit a range of powerful and quick light flashes which target melanin (the coloured pigment in freckles and dark spots). It is a common procedure designed to restore a clear, healthy and youthful complexion.

The treatment’s light energy penetrates below the skin's surface to where the unwanted dark melanin pigment lives. The heat from the lights breaks down the pigment into tiny particles. These particles then either rise to the skin's surface as scabs (to shed away naturally within a week or so), or are carried away by the body's lymphatic system (the circulatory network which lymph drains from tissue to blood).

As well as going after melanin, IPL can also have a subtle positive effect on fine wrinkles, large pores, rosacea—a skin disease that causes redness and pimples—and dilated capillaries (enlarged fine blood vessels).

During your treatment, our CoLaz experts will place special protective glasses over your eyes, before applying a cooling gel to your skin. The glass of the hand piece is then applied gently to your face to emit the pulses of light.

How Long Does It Take for IPL Treatments to Work?

COlaz IPL Treatments


For most people CoLaz advises a series of sessions over 3-5 months. This treatment schedule usually consists of 3-5 sessions of IPL a month apart. You will see an improvement after each session, though it’s common for your skin to respond slightly differently to each treatment.

The redder and more skin damaged your skin is, the more likely you are to need a full series of five sessions. Severe cases of sun exposure and dark spots may require more.

While IPL is considered a long-lasting solution, having a positive impact on many facial skin conditions, it is not a permanent solution. Sadly therefore, it does not stop the aging process.


Does IPL Hurt?

IPL therapy can be mildly discomforting, but the first session for clients tends to be the most uncomfortable. As your skin begins to clear, the treatment will gradually become easier. IPL therapy can last between 30-90 minutes depending on the size and condition of the treatment area.

IPL is a safe, easy and highly effective procedure, with almost zero recovery need. It fits easily into your schedule and you can get on with the rest of your life straight after your session. You will also see great results throughout the overall process without undergoing any intensive surgery.
