What is IPL®?
Intense Pulse Light or IPL® is a type of light treatment where light is concentrated in certain wavelengths to improve the way the skin appears. As you age you accumulate dark spots and red spots and this can detract away from the appearance of your face. IPL is a great way of reducing the appearance of these spots without a lot of downtime. It does this by concentrating light which is preferentially absorbed by dark and red spots and avoiding damaging the top layers of the skin. It is based on the theories of Selective Photothermolysis which allows the light to concentrate on particular targets and avoiding surrounding structures that you wish to avoid.
How does IPL® Work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent hand- piece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.of your skin.
