Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a type of light therapy that can be opted for to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair. With Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), you can minimize or remove:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Varicose veins
- Broken blood vessels on your face
- Hair (on the face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, bikini line)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is similar to laser treatment except for the difference in the wavelength. Laser treatment focuses on just one wavelength of light on your skin whereas Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) releases light of many different wavelengths (similar to a flash of a camera).
Light from Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is more scattered and less focused, penetrating down to the second layer of the skin (dermis) without harming the top layer of the skin (epidermis). This makes the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment non-invasive and causes less damage to your skin.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) IPL is also used for clients who wish to have rejuvenated skin that has been damaged by sun or tanning bed exposure. It stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin that is free from pigmentation, lesions, wrinkles, and fine lines.
