Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
What are Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Therapies?
They are technologies that rely on using specific wavelengths of light for hair removal and improve many skin conditions.
What can be treated by this technolgy?
It can treat or at least improve the appearance of the followings:
Vascular lesions including spider angiomas.
Broken facial veins
Freckles and age marks
In addition it is used for reduction of unwanted dark hair and removal on long term with frequent sesions.
How does it work?
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).
When will you see results ?
The effects add up over time. After the first session, you will see progress in the look of small broken vessels, small facial veins and some pigmented areas. These results will be visible within a few days. Other progress, such as toning and getting rid of wrinkles, will be subtler. These may take one to three months to see. Friends may say that you look more rested. With each new treatment, more subtle changes will accrue until you get the improvement you desire.
What happens during the IPL/Laser treatment?
You’ll speak with a Skin Specialist about your background and medical history at your initial consultation.
The therapist will make sure that IPL treatment will fulfill your goals, and may suggest an alternative or complementary cosmetic treatment.
If it is your first time having an IPL treatment a test patch will have to be done, then a follow up call will be made to the client to make sure no diverse reaction has happened, and it is safe to go ahead with the IPL treatment.
