IPL

Would you like to clear up age spots, sun damage, freckles, birthmarks, and varicose veins? How would you like to relieve broken blood vessels on your face, treat rosacea, and take care of the hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line.

IPL is similar to laser treatment, but a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths. The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser and penetrates down to the second layer of your skin or the dermis. It does not harm the epidermis, so it causes less damage to your skin.

Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. IPL can also destroy the hair follicles to preventive hair from growing again. You can use IPL anywhere on your body; but IPL isn’t recommended for those who have thick and raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones.

What is IPL?

Light energy is absorbed by melanin (responsible for skin pigment) and hemoglobin(red blood cells). Melanin and red blood cells become damaged and are absorbed by the body or brought to the surface of the skin and sloughed off.
