Acne is a skin disease that involves the oil glands in the skin. These oil glands are connected to the surface of the skin by follicles. Hair also grows out of these follicles. The overproduction of oil (especially during puberty), can cause the pores to become blocked, forming pimples.
IPL can effectively treat acne without the side effects of topical or oral acne medications.
The light emitted during the process is able to effectively target and destroy the skin bacteria responsible for acne, oil control and also helps to prevent future outbreaks on the face, chest and back.
At Japan IPL Express, each treatment is customized to fit every individual need.
Foundation and concealer are fine, but we can do better. Our state of the art IPL technology doesn't just cover up blemishes: it removes uneven skin tone entirely, restoring your skin's youthful glow.
Pigmentation can be caused by genetics, sun exposure, stress, fluctuating hormones, menopause, insulin resistance, damage to the skin due to injury or overly aggressive skin care treatment or frequent use of hair dyes. There are 2 types of pigmentation:
Decrease in skin pigmentation – patches of skin become lighter than the normal surrounding skin.
Increase in skin pigmentation – common and usually harmless condition where patches of skin become darker than the normal surrounding skin due to excess melanin.
Some examples of hyperpigmentation include: melasma - uneven production of pigmentation on the skin, usually presented as dark brown/black patches), peri-orbital melanosis (dark circles; may be hereditary or caused by stress/eye strain), freckles and photo-melanosis (increased pigmentation due to sun exposure; sunburn)
Japan IPL Express uses state of the art equipment that emits pulses of light directly on to the skin, breaking down excess pigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone. This procedure is non-invasive, fast, and suitable for a wide range of skin pigmentation conditions.
Vascular lesions are the result of numerous or large vessels that form directly underneath the skin. This usually results in a red appearance in the skin since the vessels can be visible through the skin. These lesions occur in many sizes, shapes and forms all over the body. These lesions occur in a variety of forms including port wine stains, broken capillaries, hemangiomas, and cherry angiomas.
A typical candidate suffers either from diffuse redness (many fine blood vessels), individual bothersome linear blood vessels, or both. The most commonly treated area is the face, especially the nose. It may take up to a month to see the full effects of the treatment, but the final result is permanent. However, persons who suffer from excessive blood vessels may generate new vessels that may require treatment in the future.

IPL works on the follicles of your hair—when it's gone, it's gone for good. However, IPL works best with follicles in the active growth stage, while dormant follicles slip by. So don't worry if you still see some hair growth after your first treatment—each treatment results in the permanent removal of hair.
After 2-3 weeks:Slower hair growth: each treatment session should result in about 25% of the treated hair.
