An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates collagen and improves skin texture.
IPL is an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve your skin’s texture, tone and colour on your face, chest, arms and hands. Signs of sun damage and age spots will usually flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clearer, younger looking skin.
IPL brings about a long term improvement in complexion and skin texture by stimulating collagen formation. It smoothes the skin and restores youthfulness by erasing the effects of sun damage while at the same time creating a youthful glow. IPL can safely and effectively treat a wide variety of skin conditions simultaneously, including freckles, brown spots and mottled pigmentation, redness, rosacea, small broken blood vessels, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles.
At Lifestyle Medical we use Cutera IPL Therapy. Cutera Machines are of medical grade and TGA approved light systems.

PDT is a revolutionary new way to treat mild to severe sun damaged, blemished and aged skin.
By using PDT’s non-invasive light technology, doctors can now treat a range of skin conditions in a fast, relatively painless and affordable way with minimal side effects and downtime. PDT provides exceptional cosmetic results, bringing new life to aged skin in areas that in the past have been hard to treat such as the decolletage and hands.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A naturally occurring lotion called ‘5 ALA’ (Aminolevulnic Acid 20%) is applied to the affected area. 5 ALA is a photosensitiser which produces a form of oxygen that makes cells more receptive to light and kills nearby cells when exposed to a specific wavelength of light. When applied to the skin, 5 ALA is absorbed into abnormal or damaged cells. Once absorbed, the LED light source is focused on the treated area for a period of time. When exposed to light, the abnormal skin cells are destroyed to reveal new, fresh, healthy skin cells.
Many patient’s report a stinging or sharp tingling sensation.
The average treatment time is approximately 30 minutes plus incubation time. Your doctor may recommend more than one treatment, depending on your individual skin and level of damage.

IPL stands for ‘Intense Pulse Light’. It is a light therapy which permanently destroys the hair folicle by heating the pigment within that hair folicle. The light used is not the harmful UVA/UVB wave length.
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.
