Laser

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), has the capability to enhance skin elasticity, promote synthesisation of collagen proteins and improve skin texture.  IPL laser treatments are fantastic for skin rejuvenation, hair reduction, pigmentation, freckles/age spots, broken capillaries, rosacea and acne scarring.

So how does it work?

At a basic level, it works by creating a heat reaction at the root of the hair folicle with a beam of light. But for those with an interest in the more difficult stuff:Intense Pulsed Light AAA Skin Solutions

IPL systems work on the same principles as lasers in that light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour (chromophores) in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes damage to the specific target area. IPL systems are different to lasers in that they deliver many wavelengths (or colours) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength. Most IPL systems use filters to refine the energy output for the treatment of certain areas. This enhances penetration without using excessive energy levels and enables targetting of specific chromophores (these are skin components that absorb light).

IPL therapy is considered a non-ablative resurfacing technique, which means that it targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) without affecting the top layers of skin (epidermis). The results are not as dramatic as ablative resurfacing where both the dermis and epidermis are injured to produce a much more noticeable overall outcome. The advantage of IPL therapy is its minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards.
