IPL is the first and only technology that combines optical (light) energy. Gentle pulses of targeted energy isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. In addition to permanent hair reduction for most hair colors and skin types, IPL effectively and comfortably treats pigmented lesions, moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris, ephelides (freckles), and vascular lesions caused by sun damage, age spots, enlarged pores and uneven skin tones. A series of IPL treatments will leave your skin smoother clearer with a tighter more youthful appearance.
It will target melanin pigments in the hair strand, light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair is converted to heat and effectively destroying the hair follicle. the principle of selective photothermolysis takes advantage of the amount of pigment found in hair. The greater amount of pigment , the more effective the treatment is.
What IPL Photofacial Treats
Treatment Of Ephelides (Freckles)
Collagen effectively absorbs the spectrum of light. This results selective thermolysis of collagen resulting in heating and contraction of collagen bundles. The retraction of collagen bundles makes this process effective in the management of fine superficial freckles.
Treatment of Vascular Lesions & Moderate Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris
The target chromophore for vascular lesions is hemoglobin. The light absorbed by hemoglobin is converted to heat thereby effectively cauterizing the endothelial walls of capillaries.
Treatment of Pigmented Lesions
Light is absorbed by melanin is transformed into heat energy. This process causes the breakdown of pigment molecules and is cleaned and by phagocytes and are also shed off by the normal process skin renewal. Transient erythema and darkening of pigment molecules can be expected.
I DO NOT DO TREATMENTS ON DARK SKIN.
