IPL uses high intensity pulses of visible light to penetrate into skin and target problem areas. It effectively does this without causing harm to the skin surface.
In the treatment of vascular lesions such as spider veins, IPL eliminates the red pigment in blood for an improved appearance.
As a photorejuvenation treatment, it targets the melanin, resulting in lesser discolouration and a more even skin tone. In hair removal, IPL destroys the follicles to prevent further growth.
