Skin Rejuvenation Cardiff
What does it work on and how?
This is perfect for fine lines, wrinkles and pigmented areas such as sun damage and ageing. This treatment does not hurt, you just feel a small stinging or snapping sensation.
Fine Lines/ Wrinkles – This treatment stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin making the area firmer, tighter, smoother and younger looking skin.
• Anti-Age Treatment (Collagen Boosting)
• Red / Thread Veins
• Open Pores
• Blood Spots
• Blotchiness (red flushing)
Age spots/ Sun spots/ Liver spots/ Pigmentation – Pigmented lesions can be successfully lightened or removed with our high specification equipment. Intense Pulse Light removes pigmented lesions with the energy light. Each pulse is designed to produce one or more specific light wavelengths which are absorbed by the abnormal concentrations of melanin. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the melanin to breakdown thus reducing concentration of melanin, leaving the treated skin looking uniform in colour and texture.
Acne/ Acne Scarring – Works on active/dormant acne by destroying bacteria which you find in the living layers of the skin. This treatment works well with skin peels, Medical Microdermabrasion and Dermapure Roller/ Micro Needling, as these treatments work on your top layers of skin as well as the basel (deeper) layers of skin.

What is photo-skin rejuvenation?
Photo-skin rejuvenation is the collective term for non-surgical treatments which help us to either maintain or improve the quality of our skin. Primarily covering treatments for the face, this also extends to improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
Why do I need this treatment?
Sun damaged skin causes facial imperfections such as pigmented spots, enlarge pores and fine lines, ages spots and dull complexion. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) improves superficial and deeper skin layers and rejuvenates the skin. We have all varying amounts of melanin whether you have a dark or light complexion. Melanin is what gives your skin its colour. Pigmented lesions are dark in colour simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors such as age, ethnic background or over exposure to the sun’s damaging rays.
TIP – We always recommend Heliocare SPF 50 because of its non chemical factors and great protection without any stickiness so you can wear makeup on top.
How many treatments shall I require?
After treatments you will see a reduction of pigmentation, skin is revitalised and smoother. The number of treatments required depends on the extent of the sun damage. However, it is important to note that as the Beauty Advance Clinic employs a high specification IPL hence the number of visits will be fewer compared to treatment performed by an inferior laser.
Will the treatment hurt?
No, however patients often liken the sensation to a sting or a snap from an elastic band each time the laser fires the flash, however here at beauty advance we use a Cryo Zimmer cooler so it can be virtually pain free. Every client has a different pain threshold, therefore, some people can tolerate it more than others. Patients are able to return to work or go about their daily routine straight away, so there is no loss of time.
