Q – What skin colour can be treated using the Ultra VPL?

Q – Why can’t Afro-Caribbean skin be treated ?
A – Firstly we are only covered by our Insurers to treat Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – IV. This is because the light from the system may causes heat to be trapped in the melanin and may cause burning.
Q – Are there any side-effects?
A – Your skin type, specific condition and sensitivity to the treatment will be assessed by your clinician. Due to the personalised treatment settings determined by your clinician during consultation, you should not experience any side-effects. A slight reddening of the skin can occur immediately after your treatment, this is an indication of an effective treatment and will fade very quickly.
Q – How many treatments may be required?
A – In most cases results can be seen after just three to five treatments, however, your clinician will advise you on a suitable course of treatments during your consultation. The number of treatments you will need will depend on your age, your skin condition, the severity of your condition and your lifestyle. Best results are achieved with a course of treatments. Your clinician will advise you as to whether top- up treatments over a longer period of time may be required.
Q – What should I do after treatment?
A – Your clinician will apply a soothing gel before and where necessary after treatment as your skin may be slightly warm and pink. We recommend you use a sunscreen for a few weeks following treatment, and avoid tanning beds or sunbathing for at least 14 days. Your clinician will answer any questions you may have after you have been treated and will also advise you on a suitable skin care programme to enhance your skin tone and texture.
Q – Can this system be used with any other therapies?
A – Yes, clients often have other treatments around the same time as having an Ultra VPL treatment. Always advise your clinician during your consultation about any other treatments you have recently received or are planning to have
