Finally, a cosmetic skin treatment that does it all!
IPL works on the same principles as laser in that light energy is absorbed by targeted cells (chromophores) with color in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes damage to the speciﬁc target area. IPL systems are different from lasers in that they deliver many wavelengths (or colors) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength. This technology use ﬁlters to reﬁne the energy output for the treatment of certain areas. This enhances penetration without using excessive energy levels and enables the targeting of speciﬁc chromophores (skin components that absorb light). The light heats cells in the skin and breaks them down. The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally.
