IPL, short for intense pulsed light therapy and also known as photorejuvenation or photo facials is used to rejuvenate your skin by treating sun damage, fine lines, brown spots or redness caused by sun exposure which makes your face and skin look older than it actually is.

At Serenity Skin and Body, we offer a range of IPL skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments at our North Sydney spa in McMahons Point.

Over time, exposure to sun or ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause the body’s collagen to break down which leads to less firm, older-looking skin. IPL treatments target pigmentation, broken capillaries, red blotches or spots on the skin and general signs of aging.

The IPL Skin Rejuvenation therapy penetrates below the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production which can help your skin look more youthful and fresh by stimulating collagen production.
