Supple and youthful-looking skin
The photorejuvenation procedure is very effective at reducing the appearance of sun and age spots on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, targeting melanin in the darkened areas to reveal unblemished skin. In addition to stimulating collagen production, the energy delivered causes the pigmented lesions to lighten and fade through your body’s natural healing process, resulting in clearer and healthier looking skin.

IPL treatment guide & FAQs
Formatk uses the most advanced 3D IPL technology to combat red blemishes, visible blood vessels and hyperpigmentation. The light gets absorbed into the colour, creating heat which then causes the target to breakdown.
Following a full skin assessment, your practitioner will measure the amount of melanin in your skin by using a milo reader before performing a small test patch to observe how your skin reacts. There are different handpieces with different wavelengths which enables us to target the specific depth to treat the pigmented lesion.
Once the area has been cleaned, a small layer of gel will be applied. The hand held device is then placed onto your skin before a pulse is delivered. You will wear safety goggles but may still be aware of a bright flash. The entire area will be treated until completely covered. Sun screen will be applied before leaving the clinic.
Formatk IPL photorejuvenation is used to treat sun damage and hyperpigmentation (sun and age spots), as well as facial redness, thread veins, rosacea, acne, leg veins and unwanted hair.
Some IPL devices can be rather uncomfortable however, the Formatk utilises the latest technology to control contact cooling, resulting in an extremely comfortable treatment with minimal downtime.
For any redness, rosacea or hyperpigmentation, we normally recommend 3 to 5 treatments for best results, with a month between treatments. If we are treating acne we will need to see you weekly for 4 to 6 weeks. We will be able to give you more definitive information during your consultation.
We will discuss your treatment options and proposed treatment plan during your initial consultation, including a full breakdown of the costs.
As a guide, for full face rejuvenation, the cost starts at £400 for a single session or £1,600 for a course of 5. Leg veins start at £250 for a single session and £675 for a course of 3. The cost is dependent on the area to be treated and how many treatments are required.
