Sun damage and other environmental factors can leave your skin looking tired and prematurely aged, resulting in skin imperfections on your face and body. Energist Variable Pulsed Light (VPL) therapy uses light energy to target the different structures in the skin to reduce imperfections and improve skin texture and tone.
With exclusive VPL technology, Energist is widely regarded as one of the best and most reliable pulsed-light devices for permanent hair reduction, skin rejuvenation and superficial vascular lesions.
At Skin Correctives, we offer various types of VPL Rejuvenation designed to treat specific skin conditions:
These are conditions where small broken veins become visible on the skin’s surface. During a VPL treatment light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels that make up these imperfections. This absorption process heats up and breaks down the vessels, allowing the skin to remove them naturally.
Sun, liver and age spots are all caused by an excess concentration of melanin (a pigment) in a particular area. During a VPL treatment, melanin absorbs the light energy and heats up quickly, while the surrounding skin remains cool. This rapid heating helps break up the concentration of excess melanin into smaller particles that are then removed by the body’s natural waste processes. Imperfections are reduced, leaving the skin texture and tone much improved.
Collagen keeps our skin looking youthful and smooth. However, as we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The carefully filtered light from VPL therapy stimulates cells in the body to produce more collagen. This new collagen moves outwards to the skin’s surface resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
Acne is caused when pores become blocked by over production of sebum and dead skin cells. Once pores are blocked bacteria can build up and cause infection, which can result in acne. VPL treatment improves active acne (acne vulgaris) by destroying anaerobic bacteria that causes the infection by producing an oxygen rich environment. VPL light also effectively reduces the inflammation associated with acne. Following a course of treatments, acne is reduced significantly and skin texture and tone is improved through collagen production.
Rosacea is a skin condition resulting in severe redness and spots on the face caused by the dilation of tiny blood vessels below the skin’s surface. VPL treatment can help control the symptoms of rosacea, reducing redness and inflammation. The light energy is absorbed by the inflamed blood vessels, and the associated heating helps break them down. The body then recognises these broken vessels as waste and removes them naturally.
The treatment is effective at reducing and improving skin imperfections on the face, neck, décolletage, and all over the body. Long-lasting results can be achieved on virtually all skin types.
