Intense Pulsed Light is a device that emits a variety of light wavelengths and is used to remove hair, and treat acne, wrinkles, dark spots, spider veins, and other conditions. It isn’t usually as effective but is more gentle and less expensive than lasers. More information about it is available in this article.

What is INTENSE PULSED LIGHT?

Intense pulsed light is a cosmetic skin treatment that people can use to lighten dark skin patches, lighten scars, and improve the look of spider veins. It can also be used to minimise the effects of ageing or to remove unwanted hair.
IPL and laser therapy are similar in how they work, but IPL delivers various wavelengths of light energy and can treat a wider area of skin in less time than laser therapy.

How does it work?

IPL employs light energy to specifically target a certain skin colour, and unlike lasers, an IPL device pulses light at more than one wavelength. You may seem younger since your skin tone is more even and it can address a number of skin issues at once. You can recover fast since another tissue isn’t harmed by the light.
Your body eliminates undesirable cells when the skin is heated. That eliminates the condition you are being treated for.
