Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) offers a gentle, non-invasive, long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, bikini line or any other body area. Based on technology used for nearly a decade in the treatment of port-wine stains and other birth marks, IPL photoepilation has been performed safely for many years, effectively eliminating dozens of hair with each pulse.
IPL technology has been proven to create a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. A customized treatment program will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to achieve your desired outcomes.
IPL hair removal is achieved through highly controlled flashes of light selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the re-growth potential of the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Benign vascular lesions (red or purple in color) are caused by an abnormal clustering of blood vessels. While some lesions may fade, others become more pronounced over time.
The widest range of benign vascular lesions, like port wine stains, telangiectasias, hemangiomas, erythema, and rosacea can be safely and effectively treated with our Nd: YAG laser. The Nd: YAG laser is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging healthy skin selectively heating and closing off blood vessels. Our Nd: YAG laser reduces the lesions, while sparing nearby tissue from injury. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective at removing unsightly lesions.
