illumiFacial® is the ‘next generation’ of the highly successful ‘Photofacial’ treatment, using a new and unique combination of specialist Lynton skincare together with powerful, medical-grade Lynton IPL technology. This quick and simple facial treatment dramatically improves skin tone and appearance, helping your skin feel and look its best.
Am I suitable for illumiFacial®?
Treatment is perfect for anyone whose skin exhibits congestion, discolouration and visible signs of ageing, however, a full consultation is carried out prior to treatment to ascertain your suitability and individual treatment needs. A full treatment plan will then be tailored to treat your speciﬁc concerns, all aiming to improve the appearance, feel and health of your skin.
How does the treatment feel?
illumiFacial is a very quick, comfortable treatment which is designed to provide you with ‘optimum skin health’. Some people will feel a slight tingling sensation when the fruit peel is ﬁrst applied, but it very quickly subsides. The IPL aspect of this treatment can sometimes be mildly uncomfortable - most people describe the discomfort as feeling like a ‘quick pinprick’ and ‘warm feeling’, which is very tolerable.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience a superﬁcial tingling feeling on the skin and you may see a darkening of pigment spots before they ﬂake away - this means the treatment has worked perfectly in providing you with a more even, ﬂawless skin tone. As well as clearer, healthier skin, you will also experience an ongoing improvement to the ﬁrmness and plumpness of your skin in the following months post-treatment, as new collagen is stimulated deep within the skin tissue.
Are there any side effects?
The illumiFacial is a completely non-invasive treatment, using safe, medical-grade equipment to minimise side effects. Your skin may be red and slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but this will subside very quickly. You may also have some patches of dry skin and in very rare cases, a small blister can form with some temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most people experience absolutely no side effects and any reactions usually disappear within a few hours, leaving the skin feeling and looking radiant.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 2-4 treatments will result in a significant improvement.
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.
