PHOTO REJUVENATION / SUN DAMAGE
At The Sanctuary Spa in Tralee, County Kerry we offer a full range of anti aging and sun damage treatments, which are applied by our experienced and qualified therapists.
For a more youthful looking you.....
Both the pleasure and stresses of life, along with the simple passage of time, tend to cause our skin to appear older. And the signs of ageing and sun-damage are typically most visible on a person's face. While numerous treatment from simple creams to major surgeries exist to improve various facial flaws, skin specialists have always sought dramatic improvements with low risk and no 'downtime'. Additionally, many conventional treatment options can only address one condition at a time, while they entail a prolonged recovery time, considerable pain, and potential side effects.
Ellipse Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin' s surface, hence, no 'downtime'. Ellipse Pulsed Light can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, skin discolouration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation and the symptoms of rosacea.
How is the Photorejuvenation procedure performed?
A clear gel is applied to the small area to be treated, you will be given glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the Ellipse handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. We treat over the whole face working from the outside into the middle of the face. Treatment is generally administered in a series of procedures that provides excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about thirty minutes.
Why are multiple treatment necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem,. a series of 2-6 treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk - and, it preserves the wonderful 'no downtime' feature that people appreciate so much.
Imperfection from Sun Damage and Photo-ageing
Enlarged pores, dull complexions and other facial imperfections or abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. Ellipse technology improves both the superficial and deeper skin layers and rejuvenates the skin while at the same time delivering beneficial thermal energy to deep tissue. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalised skin. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, the chest, and the hands.
