The skin may seem like an all-in-one container for your whole body, but it is actually a very complex living organ with many essential functions. The condition of your skin depends on a number of factors including your environment, your genes, your age, your lifestyle, hygiene, cosmetic use, circulation, immune response, psychological state, and of course what you eat. At Pulse Light Clinic we have a range of skin treatments to help you make a head start for different skin conditions.
You may have heard of this skin treatment, but not really know what it is. To rejuvenate means to make young again or to restore youthful vigor.

Rosacea is a medical condition where the veins in the face enlarge giving the face a red appearance. It typically begins after the age of thirty, though it can start before, as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead which at first will just come and go but as time passes the redness tends to get darker and more chronic. Left untreated veins to start to become visible, bumps and pimples start to develop and in more severe cases the nose can become swollen and bumpy and the eyes irritated, watery and bloodshot.
IPL treatments for rosacea work like this: The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target hemoglobin in your blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the hemoglobin resulting in damage to the blood vessel wall. This controlled injury to the blood vessels triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue. New cells then replace the problem area with clearer, better-looking skin.
