IPL skin rejuvenation
IPL skin rejuvenation offers the very latest and most effective way of improving:
- Skin texture
- Age spots
- Facial veins
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scarring
Best of all, no needles or knives required – just a beam of light!
IPL skin rejuvenation is a gradual process so typically six to ten treatments would be needed. The improvements are subtle and the treatment won’t interrupt your normal activities.
Pricing for IPL skin rejuvenation treatments
IPL skin rejuvenation involves 2 passes over the skin, so there are twice as many shots with the IPL machine compared to the other IPL skin treatments.
Pricing for acne treatments
IPL for acne treatments needs to be done twice a week in order to be effective, so the pricing is cheaper to make it better value for you.
|Cheeks and nose||$195|
Pricing for broken capillary/vein/vascular/pigmentation treatments
IPL for these treatments involves a single pass of the IPL machine.
|Cheeks and nose||$225|

This *rubywaxx* customer shared her Before and After photos of her IPL skin rejuvenation treatments:
Before IPL skin rejuvenation:
Two weeks after the first treatment:
The customer says:
“My pigmentation was really bothering me, as even makeup couldn’t disguise it. My skin is already looking better after just one treatment – it now looks better without makeup, than beforehand with makeup. Plus my overall skin texture has improved… just the one treatment has made me look several years younger already. I’m thrilled!”
What do I need to do before a treatment?
Avoid sunlight where possible – and if you do go in the sun, wear a good quality sun block (if you don’t have any, you can purchase some from us).
Why? Treatments work best on pale skin – so winter is a good time to have IPL skin rejuvenation treatments.
What happens during a treatment?
First of all, we’ll need some health and medical details from you so that we can safely administer the IPL treatment.
During the treatment you’ll be asked to wear dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light.
Next, a cold gel is spread over the treatment area. The hand piece is applied to the skin and pulses of light are flashed onto the treatment area.
Does it hurt?
Each pulse of light feels like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band.
Are there any possible side effects? What do I need to do after an IPL treatment?
Side effects are rare. The skin (especially pigmented areas) will often become darker or lighter following treatment, but will start returning to normal after a week or two, as the skin naturally exfoliates. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimise the risk of complications, and wearing a good quality sun block every day for at least 2 weeks following your treatment is a must. Avoid using exfoliating products on your face for 5 days following your IPL treatment.
What kind of results can I expect with IPL skin rejuvenation treatments?
The IPL skin rejuvenation treatment creates a consistent improvement in skin tone and appearance over the course of the treatments. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your skin and the type of lesions being treated. Sometimes as few as two treatments achieve excellent results, but sometimes a few more are required to achieve the desired level of improvement. We’ll be able to give you a realistic expectation during your consultation.
I’d like multiple areas treated, or a combination of hair removal and skin rejuvenation. Are any packages or discounts available?
Yes, packages are available for multiple treatments – please contact us for pricing.
What technology do you use?
We use an intense pulsed light device called Harmony by Alma Lasers™. The founders of Alma Lasers have been at the forefront of innovative medial technologies since 1980. The Harmony uses FDA approved Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT). This patented technology transcends the older, painful treatments to deliver long lasting results. Treatments are safe, fast and gentle.
Are there any products I can use to accelerate the effectiveness of IPL treatments?
Yes, the Aspect range of cosmeceuticals is an ideal partner to IPL treatments. Stocked by many of the top appearance medicine clinics, Aspect products are now available from *rubywaxx* – just ask us which product is right for you.

Please give us a call on 09 302 1294 (*rubywaxx* Grey Lynn) or 09 354 3549 (*rubywaxx* Les Mills), we’ll be very pleased to help.
