With 3D IPL Skin Treatments from Formatk, you can achieve clear, radiant and youthful skin more quickly and comfortably than ever before.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Alpha IPL treatments use light energy at different wavelengths to target many indications such a photo rejuvenation, pigmentation,facial and leg vascularity's as well as acne. The intense pulse light is converted into heat once in the skin causing a controlled trauma, triggering a form of wound healing. A course of treatment will be required and the amount of treatments will vary dependent on the indication being treated. Maintenace treatments may be required following the course. Results cannot be guaranteed and will vary.
The treatments use Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) to target and stimulate skin cells for outstanding long-term results, resolving common skin concerns including skin rejuvenation, pigmentation control, rosacea and redness reduction, spider vein reduction and acne control. IPL also encourages collagen remodelling, giving you smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin. This procedure is non- ablative and requires minimal downtime. What’s more, the innovative cooling system makes your treatment much more comfortable, while deeper penetration means shorter treatment times and better outcomes.
