Intense Pulsed Light Therapy or “photofacial” is a way to improve the colour and texture of your skin without the use of surgery. IPL uses light energy to target a certain colour in your skin and can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure, also known as “photoaging”. IPL is like a laser treatment; however, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light on your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths. The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin without harming the top layer, therefore causing less damage to your skin
You can use IPL to minimize or remove age spots, sun damage, freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, broken blood vessels & rosacea on your face, as well as remove of hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms or bikini line. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots (or destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again).
