What is IPL Laser Treatment?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment is a versatile and non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of various skin issues. It employs multiple wavelengths of light to target different chromophores in the skin. This process can effectively reduce pigmentation, sun damage, and rosacea, as well as treat acne and remove unwanted hair.

The technology works by emitting short bursts of a broad-spectrum light that penetrates the skin and is absorbed by either the pigment or blood vessels depending on the treatment target. The heat generated from the light energy destroys the target cells while sparing the surrounding tissue, leading to clearer and more even-toned skin.

IPL treatments are praised for their ability to handle multiple skin conditions simultaneously and for their minimal downtime, making them a popular choice for those looking to enhance their skin’s appearance without significant recovery time.

Comprehensive IPL Solutions

At Dermasurge, under the expert care of Manuela and our skilled dermatological team, we offer a suite of IPL treatments tailored to address specific skin issues effectively. Our state-of-the-art M22 IPL technology allows precise and gentle treatments, ensuring patients achieve optimal results with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Our IPL solutions are designed to improve the aesthetics and health of your skin, from diminishing the visible symptoms of rosacea to clearing acne and rejuvenating aged skin.

M22 IPL for Rosacea

This targeted treatment uses the precision of M22 IPL technology to address the redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels often associated with rosacea.

The light therapy is fine-tuned to effectively reduce these symptoms, improving skin tone and texture while promoting a more uniform complexion with minimal downtime.

IPL Acne Solution:

Leveraging the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of IPL, this treatment directly targets acne-causing bacteria and reduces the inflammation associated with breakouts.

The result is a noticeable reduction in acne and a smoother skin surface, helping patients achieve clearer and healthier-looking skin.

IPL for Skin Rejuvenation:

Ideal for treating a variety of age-related skin concerns, this application of IPL helps diminish age spots, sun damage, and fine lines.

What to Expect After the Procedure

Post-treatment, patients may notice an immediate brightening of their complexion and a smoother feel to their skin. Mild redness and a warming sensation might occur, typically subsiding within a few hours.

With a series of treatments, improvements in skin tone, texture, and elasticity become more pronounced. Regular maintenance sessions are recommended to sustain the youthful appearance achieved with the Carbon Laser Facial.

The Science Behind IPL Technology

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology stands at the forefront of non-invasive dermatological treatments, offering a versatile approach to treating various skin conditions. At Dermasurge, we utilise IPL’s broad spectrum of light wavelengths, meticulously calibrated to target different chromophores, ensuring effective treatment for various skin issues.

The science behind IPL involves the emission of intense light bursts that reach into deeper layers of the skin while leaving the surface unharmed. Depending on the condition being treated, these light bursts are absorbed by skin pigments, such as melanin and haemoglobin, as well as the targeted tissue.

The light targets melanin for pigmentation issues like sunspots, heating and breaking it down. For vascular lesions such as rosacea or thread veins, the light targets the haemoglobin in the blood vessels, aiding them to reduce and fade away.

This process helps correct pigmentation, reduce redness, and stimulate the natural production of collagen, which is essential for revitalising the skin’s appearance. Through this precise and controlled method, IPL promotes healthier, more transparent, and more youthful skin, making it a preferred choice for patients seeking minimal downtime and effective results.

This section elucidates the underlying mechanisms that make IPL an effective treatment for various skin concerns, enhancing patient understanding and confidence in the procedures offered at Dermasurge.

Treatment Process Explained

Receiving IPL treatment at Dermasurge is a streamlined and comforting experience, personalised to each patient’s needs. Your treatment starts with a comprehensive consultation with Manuela, our senior therapist, or one of our skilled dermatologists. During this session, your skin concerns and medical history are thoroughly assessed to ensure that IPL suits you.

Customised Treatment Plan:

Following your initial consultation, a tailored treatment plan will be developed. This plan considers your specific skin concerns, the severity of the condition, and your desired outcomes.

Pre-Treatment Care:

Instructions on preparing for the treatment, including avoiding sun exposure and certain skincare products, are provided to ensure your skin is ready and in optimal condition. For the best outcomes and to prepare your skin, we recommend you:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: To avoid increased sensitivity, refrain from sunbathing or using tanning beds for at least two weeks before the treatment.
  • Skip Certain Skincare Products: To reduce the risk of irritation, stop using products containing retinol, glycolic acid, or other exfoliating agents a week before treatment.
  • Stop Waxing or Chemical Peels: Two weeks before your treatment, you should not under go the following treatments: collagen injections, chemical peels or waxing.

During the Treatment:

The treated area is cleansed, and a cooling gel is applied to minimise discomfort. The OptimaTM IPL device is then used to deliver precise light pulses to the target areas. The process is quick, typically lasting 15 to 30 minutes, with most patients experiencing minimal discomfort.


Once you have undertaken your treatment, we will arrange your follow-up appointments, which are scheduled to monitor your progress.

This comprehensive approach ensures that each Dermasurge patient feels informed, comfortable, and supported throughout their IPL treatment process.

What to Expect After IPL Treatment and Post-Care Instructions

After your IPL treatment at Dermasurge, it’s essential to understand both the immediate post-treatment expectations and the necessary care steps to ensure the best results and minimise any side effects:

  • Immediate Sensations and Recovery: Immediately following the procedure, patients may experience mild redness and a sensation akin to a light sunburn. These symptoms are typically short-lived, subsiding within a few hours.
  • Long-Term Results: Over the next several weeks, you should see a gradual improvement in skin tone, texture, and overall appearance.

The recovery period is minimal, allowing most individuals to resume daily activities immediately, though full results are typically observed after a complete series of treatments.

H3: Post-Care Guidelines:

  • Sunscreen Application: Protect the treated areas with a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. To prevent skin damage, it’s crucial to apply sun cream every two hours when exposed to sunlight.
  • Skincare Routine: Utilise gentle, non-irritating skincare products such as cleansers and moisturisers to avoid aggravating the treated skin.
  • Heat Exposure: To minimise redness and swelling, avoid hot baths, saunas, and excessive physical activity for at least 48 hours after treatment.
  • Makeup Use: If needed, makeup can be gently applied starting the day after the treatment, provided the skin shows no irritation.
  • Additional Care: Follow any specific instructions given by your therapist at Dermasurge, including applying soothing creams or cold packs and taking special care to protect the skin from sun exposure.

Adhering to these post-treatment care instructions is essential for healing and achieving the optimal outcome from your IPL treatment at Dermasurge.


Patient Reviews

“I am so glad I came to Dr. Hiba, I didn’t know what I wanted, however, my skin felt tired, old, and grey. She immediately put my mind at ease. She helped me with a skincare regime that worked! My treatment quick, painless – and results fantastic. Very happy, can’t recommend her enough.”

Peter, Surrey

“As my skin is aging, Dr. Hiba is helping me improve and maintain the texture of my skin in ways that are very natural looking and age appropriate. Dr. Hiba is so professional and took the time to explain the process and ensured she wouldn’t freeze my face. Dr. Hiba is very easy to communicate with (as is her staff) and I am genuinely looking forward to having my procedures done.”
