Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
Utilizing specific wavelengths to target various chromophores in the skin enables effective treatment of a variety of conditions, including vascular lesions, skin photoaging treatments and hair removal.
Broad spectrum pulsed light is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the range of wavelengths, optimizing it for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the relevant chromophores and damages them (blood chromophores when treating vascular lesions and melanin chromophores when treating pigmented lesions). The body’s natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
Photorejuvenation uses lasers, intense pulsed light, or photodynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and effects of photoaging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures.
Sunspots are discolorations on the skin related to aging and UV exposure from. They vary in color and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun.
