Laser, IPL and Light Therapy

Laser, IPL and other light therapies are highly versatile and effective treatment options for a range of cosmetic and medical skin concerns. 

North Coast Medispa uses medical grade equipment operated by the most qualified and highly trained practitioners in the region.

IPL Hair Removal

IPL Hair Removal treatments offer a simple and effective solution for removing unwanted hair and can be successfully used on all parts of the body or the face. IPL hair removal is most effective for removal of dark hair on fair skin. This is a different technology to laser hair removal but offers similar results and safety when used by skilled operators.

Usually a course of 6 – 8 treatments is required to achieve an optimal result, but once you’ve completed your treatment cycle, you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only the occasional maintenance treatment.

Suitable for treating:

  • Unwanted hair

LED Phototherapy

LED (Light Emitting Diode) phototherapy is a very safe and comfortable light based treatment that is perfect for treating a wide range of skin concerns and assisting in wound healing. This is a popular treatment as it’s produces no heat and is suitable for all skin types.

For best results, this treatment can be added on to any advanced skin treatment or performed as a regular maintenance treatment every 2 – 4 weeks. Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, there is no downtime at all.

Suitable for treating:

  • Acne and congested skin
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Inflammation

Clear & Brilliant Fractional Laser

The “mini-Fraxel” is a gentle laser treatment that uses fractional laser technology to address and prevent the early signs of ageing skin. It is suitable for all skin types and leaves the upper layer of skin undamaged which means minimal recovery time.

A noticeable difference in your skin tone and texture will be seen around three days post treatment. A series of 3 – 6 treatments are recommended to achieve longer-lasting results.

Suitable for treating:

  • Rough & uneven skin texture, enlarged pores
  • Pigmentation
  • Early signs of ageing

IPL & Vascular Laser

IPL & Laser treatments are a non-invasive solution for addressing broken capillaries on the face. Usually a course of 4 – 6 treatments at 4 weekly intervals is required to achieve an optimal result.

Test patches are performed in your consultation to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

Suitable for treating:

  • Broken capillaries

Laser Tattoo Removal

Say goodbye to tattoo regrets with laser tattoo removal at North Coast Medispa in Lismore. 

The laser works by emitting specific wavelengths of intense light into the skin that target the pigment (colour) of the tattoo being treated. The surrounding non-inked skin is left unaffected.

When the laser energy is absorbed into the tattoo, the ink particles are shattered. This causes them to break up into tiny fragments that are then absorbed and naturally expelled by the body over time.  With a series of treatments, the ink will continue to fade away until no longer visible.

Suitable for treating:

  • Dark blue or black tattoos

UVB Light Therapy

A whole body phototherapy treatment used to treat chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis and vitiligo.

This treatment is offered through our partner clinic Lismore Skin Clinic. A referral from your GP is required to access Medicare rebates for this treatment.

Suitable for treating:

  • Chronic skin disease

PDT Photorejuvenation

PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) combines specialised light therapy with photosensitive medications to rejuvenate the skin and is particularly useful for treating superficial types of skin cancer or pre-cancerous lesions. Also sometimes used for treating mild to moderate acne and for general skin rejuvenation.

Since photodynamic therapy only affects targeted cells, it is less destructive than many other methods used to treat skin concerns. Downtime will occur but usually is minimal.

Suitable for treating:

  • Actinic Keratosis
  • Pigmentation
  • Acne
  • Fine lines & Wrinkles
