IAL System Biorevitalisation
The IAL System – long-lasting bio-revitalization programme for the recovery and maintenance of a youthful skin, or to repair sun damaged skin.
What happens to the skin as it ages?
As we age, the skin loses collagen, fat and hyaluronic acid. This causes the skin to sag and develop lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid plays a vital part in skin care by keeping the skin firm and elastic. It deeply moisturises the skin, promoting collagen production, which improves skin beauty and revitalises it. It also acts as an anti-oxidant and protects the skin from damaging free-radical molecules. This all slows down the skin aging process, helps repair sun damaged skin, and promotes skin beauty.
How does the IAL system rejuvenate the skin?
The revolutionary IAL system is a long-term medical-cosmetic treatment. The IAL system is a long-term treatment to hydrate and improve the skin quality. Benefits are seen after weeks not days.
IAL is a non-animal based hyaluronic acid based gel which is injected into the skin via a very fine needle. Using a criss-cross pattern of small injections (the matrix technique) the IAL system can smoothly distribute itself across a large area of skin.
Where can IAL be used?
Forehead/Brow lines – difficult and deep forehead and nasal lines can be pre-treated with the IAL system to enhance the effects of further treatments such as Botox© or dermal fillers. Rather like applying a good foundation base before your makeup.
Eyes/Mouth – using a series of small injections, fine lines around the mouth and eyes can be improved.
Face/Neck/Décolleté/Backs of the Hands – using a micropuncture technique, damaged skin in these areas can be revitalised.
Damaged skin repair programmes
Personalised programmes can be designed for each client depending on their skin condition and how deeply it is damaged. This will be discussed in your initial consultation along with your background medical history. I may recommend complimentary or alternative treatments such as Botox© or dermal fillers if appropriate.
With the IAL system it is recommended that 2 or 3 skin repair treatments be carried out every 10-14 days initially with maintenance treatments every 3 months.
A fast repair programme may suit clients that have damaged skin due to excess sun exposure or have had aggressive chemical peels or other damaging beauty products. This would involve 2 treatments 14 days apart.
Does IAL have any side effects?
There may be some transient redness at the injection sites which will fade over a few hours. The skin around the injection site may look paler than the rest of the skin as the IAL system distributes itself through the dermis, this will settle after a few days. There is a very low risk of allergic reaction (1 in 200 patients).
Can anyone use the IAL skin repair system?
It is not recommended if you are pregnant or breast-feeding; otherwise there are no contraindications except previous allergies to hyaluronic acid injections.
What does IAL skin rejuvenation cost?
Bio-revitalisation system of aged or sun-damaged skin, using superficial micro- injections of hyaluronic acid, which diffuses through the dermal layers to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin as well as stimulate collagen production. An excellent treatment for the skin of the décolleté & neck and backs of the hands as well as the face.
