LASER AND LIGHT-BASED TREATMENTS
Laser and IPL treatments
Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments work on the deeper components of the skin’s make up by selectively targeting individual chromophores – or colours – within the skin. Laser and light-based treatments use light energy to target these chromophores to either eliminate their appearance within the skin or dramatically reduce them.
What can be treated?
- Hair removal
- Acne treatments
- Skin redness
- Open pores
- Rosacea and sensitivity
- Sun damage
- Vascular conditions of the face and body

IPL - Permanent hair reduction
Permanent hair reduction involves the application of a laser or light source to the skin, targeting the melanin chromophore found in the hair follicles. This process aims to then disable the hair follicle, inhibiting regrowth.
As not all hair in one treatment area grows at the same time, multiple treatments are required to successfully treat each active hair follicle. Hair thickness, colour and the treatment area also strongly affect the success of each treatment.

IPL PHOTO rejuvenation
Light energy is used to selectively target the melanin and haemoglobin chromophores in the skin. The light is converted to heat, enabling a targeted elimination of sun damage, brown spots, visible redness and facial capillaries.

Laser Genesis skin therapy
At Andrew Ives room, we have one word for this treatment – amazing – and we know you’ll love it as much as we do! Cutera’s Laser Genesis skin therapy treatment is scientifically proven to produce new collagen, using non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, skin redness, large pores, uneven texture and scarring.
Laser Genesis works by using light to gently heat the upper dermal portion of the skin, stimulating new collagen regrowth. Additional heat is produced through its attraction to the haemoglobin chromophore in the skin, which helps to neutralise skin redness and speed healing times for scarring.
Andrew Ives room recommends a course of Laser Genesis treatments as the results, although subtle after each individual treatment, are impressively cumulative. The Laser Genesis procedure requires no downtime and causes minimal discomfort.

Whether your concerns lie on the face or the body, Andrew Ives room can treat a broad range of blood vessels quickly, safely and effectively. Using Cutera’s Excel, patients of all skin types – from light to dark – can experience wonderful results for everything from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins with minimal bruising or blistering.
Vein therapy works through the delivery of light energy, which is attracted to the haemoglobin chromophore in the veins. This energy causes the blood within the veins to coagulate and eventually destruct. Blood flow is then redirected to veins which are no longer visible and that lie deeper below the skin’s surface, where it should be.
Treatment numbers and frequency will depend on the number, colour and size of veins requiring treatment. These variables will also affect discomfort levels. Improvements may be seen immediately following treatment or may require several months until the final results are experienced.
Although this treatment is very effective, new veins may appear over time. This is a fact of nature, not a sign of ineffective treatment and can be easily and effectively treated with additional vein therapy sessions.

While Andrew Ives room offers a range of quick, safe and effective treatments requiring no downtime and minimal discomfort, we also recognise the need for stronger treatments to improve the skin’s surface and deeper structures.
Unlike traditional laser resurfacing technologies, Cutera’s minimally invasive Pearl procedure uses individual laser wavelength technology, allowing a safe and effective balance of tissue removal and thermal damage to the epidermis portion of the skin. After treatment, this thermal damage, affecting approximately 70% to 80% of the skin’s surface, is gently removed via the natural wound healing process, thereby revealing an almost brand new skin surface. The procedure diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, discolourations, thickened textures and sun-damage while stimulating new collagen production deeper down.
Pearl has been engineered to be faster and require less downtime and discomfort than traditional CO2, erbium or fractional procedures. It also requires fewer treatments to achieve desired results.
