Our system uses MPL
(an advanced form of IPL) and Radio Frequency.
How it works:
MPL has two actions that help.
Firstly, the redness of the skin absorbs the heat energy. The blood vessels responsible for redness absorb the light energy which heats them up and disperses them naturally through the lymphatic system, thereby improving the appearance.
Secondly, the light and heat energy from the additional radio frequency warms the collagen fibres in the skin. This stimulates new collagen and collagen re-modelling. This improves the support of the small blood vessels which helps to delay the development of more thread veins and unwanted redness.
Rosacea – This is a relapsing condition and this treatment can drastically improve the appearance but does not cure the underlying condition of rosacea longer term, so you will need to come back occasionally for maintenance sessions.
Thread veins – MPL technology triggers the collapse of the veins and broken capillaries without doing any damage to the surrounding outer layers of the skin. It also improves the overall appearance of the skin by evening out skin tone and encouraging the production of collagen.
Light is drawn to the melanin (the colour) of the patch of pigmentation.
The radio frequency follows the light down to the pigment, adding extra heat to the target to break the pigment up.
The pigment will flake off the skin, fully or partially, over a period of a few weeks.
At Bodywise we always aim to work with the most advanced, safest technology and machines available.
MPL technology is targeted directly to the location of the bacteria which causes breakouts.
It destroys the bacteria and shrinks inflamed sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules.
Together with radio frequency, heating the skin around the breakouts, it activates the skin’s fibroblast cells which stimulate collagen production to boost the healing process causing spots to disappear.
With all MPL treatments a course is necessary to enable results to be achieved.
This will be discussed at the consultation appointment and a course plan will be devised with discounts.
A non-refundable deposit of £45 will be taken to secure your course of treatments – this will be deducted from the final session.
