Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL targets melanin, the pigment in hair and skin and oxyhaemoglobin, the red pigment in our blood.

IPL is used to treat a range of conditions including; unwanted hair, irregular skin pigmentation, freckles, lentigenes, 'liver spots', birth marks, port wine stains, vascular lesions, facial redness, dilated blood vessels (telangiectasias), thread veins, rosacea and Acne.

IPL is an excellent treatment to reduce both the irregular pigmentation and dilated blood vessels seen in aging skin particularly on the face and neck. This treatment is called photorejuvenation and often referred to as a fotofacial or photofacial.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is similar to laser but the light is produced in a different way. IPL is a versatile treatment: The effects can be altered by using treatment heads with different light filters and by altering the duration of the light pulses.
