What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
IPL is a safe and effective treatment that uses flashes of light to rejuvenate your skin, reduce unwanted hair and remove red veins. All IPL machines are not created equal. At About Face our machines are the very best that the IPL world has to offer, delivering a fast, effective treatment. We have been pioneers of IPL in New Zealand delivering excellent results for 15 years. At About Face, only senior skin therapists with extensive experience and in-depth IPL training are authorised to perform IPL treatments.
How will it improve my skin?
IPL is one of the most effective treatments for removing pigmentation (brown spots and sun spots.) It can also remove diffused redness and red spider veins, leaving your skin younger and fresher. IPL also stimulates the cells responsible for producing collagen, thereby improving the texture of your skin, refining the size of your pores and diminishing the appearance of fine lines. It is ideal for the face, neck and chest and also for the backs of the hands.
Who does it suit?
IPL is ideal if you are noticing colour changes in your skin, such as redness or pigmentation. IPL treats sun damage, eliminates most pigmentation, evens out red veins to restore evenly coloured skin, improves skin radiance, reduces pore size and freshens skin to delay ageing. It is not suitable for darker skin colours. IPL is also a fast, safe method of long-term hair removal all over the body.
What happens during treatment?
A gel is applied to the skin and as the treatment is being performed you will experience a warm flicking sensation (similar to a gentle rubber band.)
How many treatments do I need and how often?
Although you will have more radiant skin after only one skin rejuvenation treatment, you’ll get optimum results after a series of three or more treatments.
What will my skin look like immediately afterwards?
Your skin will be warm with slight redness for up to 24 hours and it is best to avoid exercise directly after treatment. You will experience a few days of light “toasting” which is easily covered with make-up.
How long will it last?
An annual course is recommended.

Sian Cox tells us about her experience with IPL Skin Rejuvenation
I've always been the girl that goes red. I blush easily, and after exercise I am pretty much crimson. A night out on the town would mean layers of makeup, so I could get on the dance floor and not look like I've just run a marathon. I was so tired of people telling me, "wow you are really sun-burnt!" and every time I would just agree with them - it was easier.
Diagnosed with Rosacea, I also suffer from breakouts of raised pimple-like spots that are so sore, even to lightly touch. With the advice of About Face, I changed to natural, mineral makeup and the Clarins skincare range for sensitive skin. While this helped, I was looking for something more drastic, and this is when I tried IPL treatments.
After three treatments, most of my problems have literally faded away. I now only need a light dusting of mineral powder and my skin tone stays even. The results were just amazing, it has changed my life.
