How much does IPL pigment removal cost?
The cost of the IPL pigment removal is per lesion or treatment, otherwise we provide a couple of deals if buying a course of treatment:
Per lesion: £60
Per face/hand treatment: £90
Course of 3 buy a course of 3 and save £20: £250
Course of 6 buy a course 6 and only pay for 5: £450
How does the treatment work?
Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.
How is the treatment carried out?
The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist. Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.
