Experience remarkable skin improvement with GLB-IPL
WHAT IS GLB-IPL
Using Patented Pure Gold Wave technology, the GLB-IPL wand is placed gently on the skin, where it produces Intense Pulse Light (IPL). This non invasive procedure is used to treat pigmentation, skin rejuvenation, rosacea/sensitivity, acne scarring and stretchmarks.
WHAT DOES IT DO
Intense Pulsed Light is transmitted through a specific filter which alters the light’s wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The GLB-IPL system uses light to create heat within the body tissue which absorbs pigment. Each condition contains a particular pigment which is treated with various filters. By using specific filters (wavelengths) of light to treat specific layers of the skin, we can target and treat a distinct part of the skin and space surrounding tissue.
The light penetrates the tissue which absorbs the melanin associated with the specific filter. The body’s natural healing process then remove the injured tissue renewing and strengthening the skin.
This will leave you with a more youthful and even complexion.
WHAT TO EXPECT
First your therapist will take you through a consultation to see what your concerns are and if this is the right treatment for you. Your therapist will recommend the number of treatments necessary to achieve the best results. Usually between 8 and 10 sessions will be required. The frequency of treatment will depend on which condition you are treating, generally treatments would be every 7-14 days.
Beginning with the treatment your therapist will cleanse the area to be treated. A conducting gel will then be applied to the area. Your therapist will apply IPL shields to protect your eyes from the light. The therapist will then begin with the IPL treatment where a glass crystal surface will be gently placed on the skin. Pulses of light are generated spaced a second apart. You will hear several beeps throughout the treatment.
Your therapist will ask your feedback on what you are feeling. When pulses are administered you should feel a small sting, somewhat like a small rubber band snapping on the skin. This sensation will only last a few seconds. Our GLB-IPL has an inbuilt cooling system which helps to cool the skin between pulses.
Once the entire area is treated your therapist will remove the conducting gel. A soothing hydrating mask will be applied to the skin for 10 minutes. To end off the treatment your therapist will remove the mask and apply moisturizer and eye cream.
After the treatment you may experience the following depending on the condition treated:
– Darkening of the pigmentation which will remain dark until the next treatment.
– Darkening of the pigmentation which will gradually lighten.
– “Milo” effect – crusting of the pigmentation which will fall off.
– The skin will turn a crimson red which can last for up to 48 hours.
– After 3-5 days the area may crust and come to the surface or disintegrate for the body to absorb.
- SKIN REJUVENATION:
– After 3-5 days the skin will have a glowing and tightening effect.
