A new wave of skin rejuvenation

cPL Treatment

what is CPL?

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL/CPL) is a new wave of skin rejuvenation, using light to treat skin concerns such as acne, scarring, pigmentation, rosacea, ageing and general skin wellbeing.

A wave length is pulsed into the skin with immediate results of healthier, clearer skin.

Incorporating the three key principles for skin health through pulsed wavelengths, exfoliation, hydration and tissue regeneration, this non-invasive treatment uses a variety of filters giving a new effective approach to your skin needs and goals.

how do CPL Treatments work?

CPL/IPL is a type of light-based therapy that uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths to target various skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, rosacea, and unwanted hair.

During an CPL/IPL laser treatment, a handheld device emits pulses of high-intensity light onto the skin. The light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by specific targets, such as melanin (pigment) in the skin or hair follicles. This causes heat damage to the targeted cells, leading to their destruction or reduction.

CPL/IPL treatments are performed by trained healthcare profesionals in a clinical setting. The number of treatments needed and the specific parameters used (such as light intensity, wavelength, and pulse duration) may vary depending on the condition being treated, the individual’s skin type, and other factors.


Results can be seen immediately but we do recommend a course of treatments for optimum results, with maintenance “top ups”.

Side Effects

As with any treatment side effects can appear, although they are not common. Patients may experience slight swelling, redness, pigment changes, mild pain and discomfort and risk of burns, your practitioner will cover this with you at your consultation.


Patients wanting to undergo IPL must have a full consultation and a Patch Test 48 hours before the first treatment. After the procedure your skin may be slightly red and we advise application of a cold compress if this is the case. We ask you avoid exercise, saunas, steam rooms and swimming pools 48 hours post treatment.
