IPL works by going into the deeper levels of the skin to work upwards. The machine uses a laser light to reach into the second layer of your skin (the dermis) without causing damage to the surface layer (the epidermis). The pigment cells absorb the light from the laser and converts it to heat, which is then used to remove any unwanted pigmentation and vascular blemishes, as well as stimulate collagen renewal.
We use the Deka MiniSilk as our chosen IPL platform.
The procedure doesn’t hurt, but a warm sensation can be felt over the face. There may be a slight discomfort over heavier blemishes.

Micro-needling on the other hand (which is sometimes also known as Collagen Inductive Therapy) works by puncturing the skin using tiny needles containing healthy serums. Our body’s natural immune response is to heal wounds, so when our skin is receives tiny punctures, it forces the generation of new healthier and younger-looking cells. Micro-needling is great for smaller areas, such as around the eyes to reduce the appearance of eye bags and crow’s feet.
Micro-needling can have a quicker visible result in comparison to IPL, but there will be a slight sunburnt feeling for 12 hours after the session.
After the micro-needling procedure, we provide a complementary LED treatment to stimulate circulation back to the face and boost collagen elasticity. This also helps any excess serum to be absorbed and boosts the healing process.
