HOW Photo Rejuvenation WORKS
At Complete Skin Solutions, we use a type of IPL system called Energist VPL™ (Variable Pulsed Light). Unlike general IPL systems, our VPL system allows our nurses and dermal therapists to have increased control of the intensity and length of the waves of light. This allows for the tailoring of treatments for individuals and ensures you experience a more comfortable and effective treatment.
Our IPL system can perform a wide range of anti-ageing & skin rejuvenation without any need for surgery. This improves your complexion by stimulating collagen production in the deep layers, and smoothing the colour and contour of the skin.
Collagen is an important part of the skin structure that keeps our skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Energist VPL™ stimulates cells in the body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Independent clinical research has shown that treatment with intense light sources at low energies can increase collagen production rates by 42%.
Sun and age spots often appear in later years and are caused by an excess production of melanin, the pigment which determines our hair and skin colour. Light energy from VPL™ is absorbed by the melanin and heats up quickly whilst the surrounding skin remains cool. The heat causes the particles of melanin to break up and subsequently be removed by the body’s natural waste processes, leaving skin clearer and more evening in tone.
These are conditions where small blood vessels become visible on the skin’s surface. During treatment light energy from VPL™ is absorbed by the blood vessels and the absorption process breaks down the vessels, which are then recognised by the body as waste and removed naturally.
Acne is caused by bacteria living in pores blocked by dead skin cells and excess sebum (an oil produced by the body). Energist VPL™ improves both active acne and helps to prevent further irritation by destroying the bacteria. Acne is reduced significantly following a course of treatments.
This treatment is ideal for anyone looking to treat any of the following skin conditions.
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots
- Thread Veins and superficial vascularity
- Acne prone skin
- Diffuse Redness
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Wrinkle Reduction & Collagen Stimulation

Photo Rejuvenation treatments are incredible effective and safe for all skin types, in the right hands. Our VPL system allows us to tailor the treatment to your specific skin needs.
