Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology that delivers light energy in a range of wavelengths. Specific filters are then used to select the wavelengths most effective for the particular skin condition being treated. IPL can be used to treat a wide range of skin conditions including broken capillaries, facial redness/flushing and sun damage (freckles, mottled pigmentation, solar lentigines). IPL is also used in photo rejuvenation and photodynamic therapy for sun spots (actinic keratoses) and certain types of skin cancers.
Our clinics use Lumenis M22 which is the only available IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology. This technology delivers IPL pulses of homogeneous power over the entire duration of the pulses making treatments with the Lumenis M22 safer and gentler yet much more reliable in achieving the desired results.
