What is IPL – Intense Pulsed Light Treatment?
IPL is a non invasive medical technology that uses light therapy for permanent hair reduction, eliminating age spots, sun spots, freckles and unsightly discolourations of the skin, superficial capillaries, and other benign vascular lesions. It is also particularly effective for a high percentage of people with rosacea.
How does IPL work?
IPL works on similar principles to laser in that light energy is absorbed into certain target cells with colour in the skin. The light converts to heat, which damages the target cells whilst leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
The cells that have been targeted will move naturally to the surface of he skin and slough off. This then leaves a much lighter effect on the skin whether it be pigment, vascular or general rejuvenation.
