IPL Hair Removal

IPL Hair Removal

Intense pulsed light (IPL) or flash lamp therapy is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of the following skin problems:

Vascular lesions including spider angiomas, port wine stains, broken facial veins, rosy cheeks, rosacea and red thread veins of the legs

Freckles and age marks

Facial lines and wrinkles

Removal of unwanted dark hair

The procedure of rejuvenating aged skin is referred to as photo-rejuvenation and requires a series of IPL treatments.

IPL may also be helpful for mild to moderate acne and stretch marks.

IPL systems work on the same principles as lasers, where light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour (chromophores) in the skin.
