IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a popular treatment at our High Wycombe clinic. It is used to improve a variety of skin conditions to give an overall clearer and smoother complexion, resulting in a younger looking skin, so is generally described as Skin Rejuvenation.
Typical kinds of skin issues that can be treated using IPL include:
- Fine Veins and diffuse redness and rosacea
- Brown pigment, freckle spots or age spots and sun damage
- Fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin due to the collagen plumping effects of the IPL treatment
Areas that are often treated with IPL are not limited to just the face but the chest, decollatage, arms and other parts of the body. Various red or brown coloured skin blemishes can be removed or improved with IPL Skin Rejuvenation.
Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light
Although we may like some of our unique skin markings, such as birthmarks or beauty spots we were born with, sometimes blemishes appear over time that were just not there before. That annoying red spot on the end of your nose, or the redness on your cheeks just seems to be getting worse and not fading, or maybe your hands are looking a bit aged with uneven freckle spots…
Well, it’s great to know there could be a solution waiting for you to reduce or remove these blemishes. As little as one treatment can leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and clearer, resulting in a dewy collagen boost too!

Viora have built in user controls that enable the practitioner to fine tune the settings in order to optimise the treatment results.
The therapists using the Viora IPL system are highly trained and experienced to know exactly how and when to make these adjustments so your treatment is fully optimised.
