Discover the power of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive photorejuvenation therapy used to improve skin colour, texture and elasticity. Photorejuvenation, also known as photofacial, is a technique developed to eliminate brown spots, redness and dilated blood vessels. It is also used to treat acne.
How it works
Using broad-spectrum polychromatic light, the IPL sends pulses with a predetermined wavelength and intensity to the treated area (face, neck, décolleté, back, arms and legs). The wavelength, pulse duration and number of pulses vary depending on the treatment goals.
IPL involves shining highly concentrated beams of light to the skin. By emitting intense pulsed light (IPL) to the areas of concern, the IPL produces heat that’s absorbed by tissue in the treatment area to achieve the desired outcome. The light targets pigments, and vascular irregularities and smooths out the skin’s tone and texture.

Can IPL ruin your skin?
-There is very little risk of damaging your skin from IPL treatments, also known as photofacials. A photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that saturates the surface of your skin with light to target problem areas and reverse both signs of damage and aging.
Is IPL less painful than laser?
-IPL is less painful than laser hair removal, but pain levels can be dependant on your body type. Many professional IPL machines have a built in cooling system which actively cools the skin as the machine is operating. This considerably reduces any discomfort felt during the treatment.
Are IPL results permanent?
-Yes! The IPL Photofacial treatment will permanently remove dark spots from the skin with minimal to no side effects. … While results are permanent for existing skin concerns, that does not mean that dark marks or freckles will not return in the future if left un-protected from the sun.
Is Palomar laser effective?
-High Efficacy, No to Minimal Downtime.
The Palomar Lux offers greater energy per microbeam, and greater depth of penetration (up to 1 mm) than some similar devices. This stimulates quick healing within the surrounding deep tissue for effective deep corrections and long-term dermal remodeling.
How many IPL treatments does it take to see results?
-For patients to get the best IPL results, it is generally recommended that patients receive, on average, 4 – 6 treatments scheduled four weeks apart.
