IPL Facial Treatments
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a superb option for aesthetic and therapeutic skin treatments, including hair removal, photorejuvenation (treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage), removing facial broken capillaries as well as to treating acne. The technology uses a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense pulse of light that targets specific structures (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body. IPL is similar to laser treatments, in that they both use light to heat and destroy their targets. But unlike lasers that use a single wavelength of light, and hence only one condition, IPL uses a broad spectrum that when used with filters, allows it to be used against several conditions.
