What is Luminous Glow Facetherapy?
Luminous Glow Facetherapy utilises intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy as a “quick-fix” treatment of acne. The treatment destroys the p.acne bacteria, shrinks sebaceous glands and pore size without drugs, pain and downtime. This is an ideal lunch time treatment as the broad spectrum of light penetrates the deeper layer of the skin without harming or injuring the upper layer or the epidermis. Further, since the wavelengths can be filtered, the light energy doesn't have any negative effect on the neighboring cells and tissues of the targeted area.
This treatment is also ideal for those who are looking to even out skin tone and reduce the visibility of acne scars and an improvement in the texture of the skin.
How Does It Work?
The treatment starts off with a comfortable and soothing welcome massage, followed by an effective microdermabrasion resurfacing treatment to exfoliate the skin. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment, employs the use of special diamond-tipped hand piece to vacuum away whiteheads, blackheads, dirt, and dead skin revealing the younger, brighter skin cells underneath.
For those with congested pores, we will also do a gentle manual extraction to remove excess blackheads and oil seeds. The highlight of the treatment is the delivery of short pulses of intense light energy onto the skin. Its technology uses light that is UV-safe and has no known side effects. Depending on the specific wavelength of light, it can target bacteria in the skin as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts. It can also be used to selectively destroy pigment cells.
When you skin absorbs the light energy, it heats up and you will feel a brief, prickling sensation, almost like a rubber band snapping. A layer of gel is applied before the treatment to ease any discomfort.
Who is it suitable for?
Luminous Glow Facetherapy is ideal for those who wish to improve the texture as well as minimize the appearance of pigmentation and acne scars. The most significant benefit you will experience from this skin treatment is the marked improvement of your skin after a session as your pores are tightened, blackheads removed, collagen stimulated and your youth restored.
For those who have moderate inflammatory acne, you can also combine it with Radiance Peel Facetherapy, in order to achieve the desired outcome.
