The Ultra VPL Anti Ageing treatment Sydney uses short safe controlled pulses of filtered light to rejuvenate your skin.
Ultra VPL offers a safe, non-surgical treatment for many skin conditions often brought about by age or over-exposure to the sun. It is also very effective on facial scars caused by acne.
Sun, liver and age spots
Conditions which usually appear in later years. These are all caused by an excess amount of melanin, the pigment which determines our hair and skin colour.
Melanin absorbs the light energy from Ultra VPL and heats up quickly, whilst the surrounding skin remains cool. The heat means that the particles of melanin break up into smaller particles, that are then removed by the body’s natural waste processes, leaving skin clear and smooth.
Pigmentation can be caused by UV rays, fragrance applied to the skin, hormonal changes, trauma, chemicals on the area, vitamin A and / or C deficiencies, medications being taken, or EFAD (essential fatty acid deficiency).
Ultra VPL Anti Ageing treatments Sydney can reduce the colour of pigmented lesions caused by sun damage. A doctor’s letter confirming that no skin cancers are present is required before commencing treatment. One treatment is often enough to see stunning results. However, results will vary.
Usually sun damage typically seen on backs of hands, forearms, décolletage and face will respond well.
Hormonal pigmentation and other pigmentation with a medical cause may not respond, or will have minimal results.
Thread veins, spider naevi and cherry spots
Conditions where small veins become visible on the skin’s surface.
Light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels that make up these imperfections. This absorption process breaks down the vessel walls. Effective Ultra VPL Anti Ageing treatment Sydney allow the body to recognise these broken vessels as waste and removes them naturally.
Rosacea is a vascular, inflammatory skin disorder that affects approximately 5% of the population and is characterized by frequent periods of facial redness or flushing caused by over-active capillaries.
Ultra VPL Anti Ageing treatment Sydney can be used to treat general diffuse redness or couperose (enlarged capillaries). It is recommended for face, neck and décolletage, on both men and women.
Wrinkles and fine lines
Collagen is the substance in our bodies that keeps our skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The light from Ultra VPL stimulates cells in the body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. The new collagen moves outwards to the skin’s surface resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
