IPL Skin Tone Perfector

Intense Pulsed Light treatments are the gold standard for blitzing pigmentation and treating areas of redness and broken capillaries. The beauty editor’s go-to is Dr Vicky Dondos and her team at Medicetics. Pre-appointment avoid the sun’s UV rays and fake tanning treatments (especially important for pigmentation) and continue to avoid them for a few weeks afterwards. You’ll also need to be patch-tested for adverse skin reactions.

At the treatment, skin is first cleansed and a cooling gel applied before the therapist applies the hand-held IPL flashgun to the skin and zaps to treat the blemished area, moving and repeating until all areas have been treated.
