IPL Photo Rejuvenation Perth
Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photo rejuvenation is a non-invasive light based treatment designed to treat the signs of photo ageing and help restore a youthful looking skin.
It offers the advantage of improving skin tone & surface imperfections associated with aging & sun damage with virtually no downtime.
IPL Photorejuvenation in Perth can treat the following skin conditions:
- Age spots (sun-induced freckles)
- Irregular skin pigmentation & freckles
- Sun damage
- Broken capillaries & facial veins
Treatment with IPL can cause mild discomfort as each pulse of light can feel like the flick of an elastic band. Whilst pain levels are individual, the IPL handpiece does provide ‘cooling’ to minimise the heat. Topical anaesthetic creams are not permitted as they do not permit your technician to monitor the skin reaction & avoid complications.
Following IPL Photorejuvenation your skin may be slightly red & swollen & dark spots will appear darker. The redness & swelling typically lasts a few hours. Makeup can be applied to camouflage the skin reaction. (We recommend Oxygenetix breathable medical makeup as it will accelerate healing.) Final results will not be seen for 2 -3 weeks when darkened spots & broken capillaries have faded. The overall cosmetic effect is a renewed & more youthful appearance.
A series of 3 IPL treatments is usually recommended for skin rejuvenation, although it will depend on your individual skin condition & cosmetic goals. IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat any part of the face, neck, décolletage, hands & arms.
IPL Photorejuvenation is safe if administered by properly qualified medical staff using medical-grade equipment. At Skin Evolution & About Face Cosmetic Studio we utilise the Cutera Limelight IPL. It is a sophisticated medical grade IPL device that allows the IPL treatment to be tailored with precision to your individual skin type & condition. A reputable machine like the Limelight IPL gives results that are precise & accurate. All our skin professionals are highly trained IPL technicians who perform the IPL under strict safety guidelines & are supervised by our Cosmetic Doctors.
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser treatment that works deeep within your skin cells to target stubborn redness & pigment, as well as stimulatin collagen & elastin.
Laser Genesis is a breakthrough laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging & sun damage & promote vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodelling to improve the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles & target unwanted brown spots & facial redness. Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic. The result is a glowing, ‘camera ready’ complexion.
Laser Genesis works by heating the upper dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production & combat signs of aging. In addition to treating fine lines & wrinkles, Laser Genesis is known to improve skin redness, minimise the appearance of red scars, new stretch marks, treat acne & rosacea. The heat that is created by the laser can help to clear dilated capillaries that cause redness on the skin, reduce acne-causing bacteria & control oil production. They call this the ‘lunchtime’ laser treatment as there is no downtime & it is the gold standard for treating conditions like rosacea, open pores, red scars, acne & anti-aging.
A course of Laser Genesis treatments is usually recommended & the number will depend on the condition of your skin & the result we are trying to achieve. Often, we commence with a series of 3 treatments 3-4 weeks apart followed by maintenance treatments every 3-6 months.
Fractional Skin Resurfacing Perth
FRACTIONAL RF Skin Resurfacing in Perth is the next generation in collagen induction therapy utilising microneedles & three dimensional thermal energy to maximise collagen remodelling, skin rejuvenation & skin tightening.
Our fractional devices Tixel & Fractora thermal energy via micro-needles to create focal thermal micro-injuries that encourage regeneration of new collagen & skin cells. Simultaneously, volumetric deep dermal heating is applied to the collagen fibres causing an immediate & long term skin tightening. This combined treatment effectively treats all skin layers for an optimal result. After repeat treatments there is a noticeable firming of the skin in the face & neck area in addition to skin texture & pigment improvements.
The Fractional skin resurfacing process is simple & straightforward. Topical anaesthetic cream may be applied for 30 minutes prior to treatment to anaesthetise the target area. Most people report minimal pain with treatment. Following treatment, you should expect a ‘pink’ or ‘red’ sunburn appearance with mild inflammation that can last two or more days. As only a fraction of the dermal skin tissue is targeted during each treatment, the recovery is comfortable & the downtime is minimal.
With a course of Fractional skin resurfacing you can expect to achieve a revitalised, fresher & more youthful looking skin. Results are visible from the first treatment. Typically, a three session initial treatment course is sufficient to achieve long-lasting results.
Benefits of Fractional Skin Resurfacing include:
- Improvement in skin tone & texture
- Reduction of fine lines & wrinkles
- Improvement in acne scars & other blemishes
- Treatment of sun damage & aging skin
- Clearer, more radiant complexion
- Skin tightening
- Skin rejuvenation

Fractional Resurfacing is your ideal solution for Skin Rejuvenation, Skin Tightening & Acne Scar Correction.
Erbium Laser Resurfacing (Laser Peel) Perth
Erbium Laser resurfacing is an ablative skin resurfacing treatment to rejuvenate the skin & reduce the effects of the sun, smoking and aging. It is ideal in the treatment of wrinkles, sun damage, upper lip lines & other imperfections in skin appearance.
Laser skin resurfacing involves scanning a beam of light which vaporises the damaged skin cells layer by layer until a smoother, more uniform skin appearance is achieved. As the new skin heals, new collagen formation is stimulated resulting in a smoother, healthier-looking skin with a natural youthful glow. To protect the new skin, strict sun avoidance should be maintained for 3 months.
A ‘Weekend Peel’ is a superficial or ‘light’ resurfacing treatment which heals in a few days. This treatment ‘freshens’ the skin removing sunspots, rough scaly patches, freckles & irregular pigmentation. Deeper resurfacing treatments are most commonly performed around the mouth for perioral lines & wrinkles. This treatment will take longer to heal & will be accompanied with postoperative redness that can take 4 – 6 weeks to resolve. All resurfacing treatments are combined with ANGEL PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to expedite wound healing.
Erbium Laser Resurfacing is performed at About Face Cosmetic Studio by our Cosmetic Physician Dr Katina Elfis who has extensive experience with this technology.
