INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL)
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light machines and devices are made to treat cosmetic and medical skin conditions over time. They have continually developed the technology and can be used across a wide range of topical and underlying skin conditions.
IPL’s work by producing a beam of broad spectrum light into a specific area of skin.
The light travels through the skin detecting the hair/blood vessel/pigment to be targeted and upon detection, is then converted to a heat energy, therefore damaging or destroying the underlying condition.
It is delivered to the skin via handpiece which flashes in time with the delivery of the light.
