Innovative Skincare with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL), also called Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is the gold standard treatment for skin rejuvenation and treating broken capillaries, sun damage and pigmentation.

At Shire Aesthetics, we offer advanced IPL treatment in Sydney tailored to your unique needs and skin concerns, using a state-of-the-art IPL M22 System. From tattoo removal and reducing varicose veins to the treatment of vascular lesions and skin pigmentation, we’re here to assist you.

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment?

IPL treatment harnesses the power of broad-spectrum light energy to target and treat various skin concerns. Unlike other skin laser treatments which use a single wavelength of light, IPL emits multiple wavelengths, allowing it to address a range of issues simultaneously.

At Shire Aesthetics, our sophisticated machine allows us to vary the parameters to target specific conditions. Some full facial treatments last just 10 minutes.

What Can Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Treat?

Sun Damage

Intense pulsed light therapy is used to reduce the appearance of sunspots, freckles, and uneven pigmentation caused by sun exposure.


Intense pulsed light is used for clearing acne breakouts and reducing inflammation and redness associated with acne-prone skin. Microneedling and fractional laser skin resurfacing, however, are more effective for acne scarring.

Hair Removal

It is effective laser hair removal and is used for permanently reducing unwanted hair on various areas of the body, including the face, legs, bikini line, and underarms.

Tattoo removal

Intense pulsed light can effectively target and break down tattoo ink particles, gradually fading the appearance of tattoos over multiple treatment sessions.

Vascular Lesions

We can target and diminish the appearance of broken capillaries, spider veins, and redness caused by rosacea.

What is the Intense Pulse Laser Therapy
Process at Shire Aesthetics?


Your first consultation with our cosmetic physician includes a skin assessment and discussing your medical history and expectations. Once satisfied, your individual treatment plan will be discussed in detail, and you will be given a date for the procedure.


During your Intense Pulsed Laser therapy session, a handheld IPL device is gently applied to the skin, delivering pulses of light energy. You may experience a mild sensation of heat or snapping during the procedure, but discomfort is minimal.

Recovery and Results

Following your IPL treatment, you may experience temporary redness or mild swelling, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days. Over the coming weeks, patients notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your skin as pigmentation fades, redness diminishes, and overall tone and texture improve. For optimal results, a series of IPL treatments may be recommended.

How Much Do Intense Pulsed Laser Treatments Cost in Sydney?

The cost of IPL light energy treatments varies depending on the specific areas treated, the number of sessions required, and other factors. During your consultation, we will provide you with a detailed quote tailored to your treatment plan.

Intense Pulsed Laser therapy treatment is generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort during the procedure. Our team can provide topical anaesthesia or cooling gel to enhance your comfort.

The number of Intense Pulsed Laser therapy sessions required depends on your skin concerns and treatment goals. Typically, a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended for best results.

Temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, and mild discomfort may occur after Intense Pulsed Light treatment, but these usually resolve within a few days. Serious complications are rare.

Intense Pulsed Light treatment can be safely performed on most skin types, but it may not be suitable for individuals with very dark skin tones or certain medical conditions. Our clinicians will assess your skin during your consultation to determine suitability.

IPL treatment results are long-lasting, but maintenance sessions may be required to sustain the effects, especially for conditions like sun damage and pigmentation. Proper skincare and sun protection can also help prolong results.

While Intense Pulsed Light therapy can improve the appearance of active acne and redness associated with acne, it may have limited effectiveness in treating deep acne scars. Other treatments such as fractional laser skin resurfacing or microneedling may be more suitable for acne scar revision.
