Specialising in advanced Intense Pulsed Light for Hair Removal and Photorejuvenation, Dermatouch can provide the most advanced and up to date procedures for cosmetic applications without any “down time” associated with laser and surgical alternatives.

The latest technology in addressing thread veins, pigmented lesions, age spots, cherry angioma’s and to reduce hair growth, is INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL). IPL is a light based therapy having the advantage over laser treatments in that there is little or no down time or side affects associated with the treatments. Client care and well being is a priority within the Clinic. You can expect to be treated in a very caring and understanding way within a safe and fully registered environment.

What conditions can be treated?

Hair Removal – unwanted hair can be removed from all parts of the body, including legs, chin, upper lip, bikini line, underarm, back and chest.

Skin rejuvenation – Many skin conditions can be successfully treated including: redness, rosacia, age spots, acne, skin texture and fine lines.

What makes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) special?

IPL is a non-laser unit that emits light across a range of wavelengths regularly producing better results than the original laser units associated with cosmetic procedures.

For hair removal, the melanin in the hair absorbs this light and is heated to a temperature that affects the hairs ability to grow.

For skin rejuvenation, various structures absorb this light and repair the damage caused by ageing and the sun.

Who can be treated?

Most hair and skin types can be successfully treated, but a consultation with our fully trained and registered practitioners will provide you with more information and any relevant advice. The treatments have little or no side effects, so procedures can be performed quickly and without any changes to your daily routine.
