Photo Rejuvenation (IPL, Photofacial)
Are you tired of looking older than your years? Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we have spent many years honing our techniques and are proud to provide a range of photo rejuvenation treatments in Dubai that guarantee amazing results. Whether you’re looking to combat the effects of fine lines, reduce the appearance of wrinkles or banish the signs of acne, our treatments offer so much and more.
Here at Blue Tree Clinics, the core treatments that we offer are IPL and Photofacial. While similar to an IPL treatment in many ways, our Photofacial is, in fact, an LED-based treatment. For more information about both of these treatments, continue reading on below.
What is IPL?
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a light-based therapy that uses pulsed light to facilitate the effects of photo rejuvenation. How it works is to target the red blood cells by focusing the light on the blood vessels. The light is absorbed, and the heat energy causes controlled damage which, in turn, triggers the body’s own repair-response.
Unlike other forms of laser therapy, IPL can be modulated to operate at different wavelengths. Certain wavelengths can be filtered out causing the treatment to act on a specific structure rather than the general area. For photo rejuvenation, the result is younger, fresher looking skin.
In addition to photo rejuvenation treatment in Dubai, IPL can also be used in other areas too such as acne and hair reduction.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
Our IPL treatment in Dubai is always preceded by a full consultation with a member of our team. As part of this consultation, your needs and skin type will be assessed, and a treatment plan devised that is right for you. To get the best results possible, we typically recommend that each patient undergoes 4-6 treatments over the course of 2-3 weeks.
Prior to each treatment session, the area will be anaesthetised using a topical cream to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. The device will then be moved across the area using a grid style method to ensure that the entire area is correctly treated. Afterwards, post-care skin products will be applied to cool the area and aid in the healing process.
What is a Photofacial treatment?
The main fundamental difference between IPL and Photofacial treatments is that Photofacial treatments are classed as an LED-based treatment. This type of photo rejuvenation treatment in Dubai is also known as an LED facial and works by using a narrow spectrum of light which is designed to boost the skin’s collagen levels.
As a result of increased collagen, the skin becomes firmer, plumper and younger looking. Photofacial treatments can also eliminate the bacteria that cause acne to appear.
As with our Intense Pulsed Light treatment, our Photofacials always start with a full consultation. Again, this allows us to assess your particular needs and to devise a treatment plan that will help you to achieve the results you are looking for. For the best results, around half a dozen treatments are usually required.
The treatment is completely painless and won’t burn the skin, unlike other laser therapies. It’s gentler, though won’t achieve the same level of results as plastic surgery. This type of photo rejuvenation treatment in Dubai is recommended for patients who require a less intensive procedure to treat light-medium cosmetic imperfections.
Following the initial set of treatments, the effects will need to be maintained by monthly treatments. This can be discussed in further detail during your initial consultation and following the completion of your initial treatment plan.

“After mentioning my wrinkle-related frustration to my friend, she suggested that I try out Blue Tree Clinics. I was initially sceptical but the team were very good at answering all my questions and reassured me that I would have no regrets afterwards. They were right. My wrinkles appear noticeably reduced and I can enjoy a new lease of confidence in my life.” – Mills
