IPL skin rejuvenation treatment
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) specifically uses visible broad-spectrum light wavelengths to target pigmentation spots, redness, fine lines and wrinkles. The intense pulses of light are attracted to chromophores, or color, in the skin. Cut-off filters within the device are then applied to specifically target your client’s skin concern. When applied to the skin, the device will create a flash of light; this light is then converted to heat and sent to the desired area while preserving the epidermal tissues. The heat is absorbed by its target to then “dissolve” the specific concern. The body naturally removes the injured tissue creating a renewed appearance or minimal amount of hair. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, sometimes known as a photo facial, skin resurfacing or photo-rejuvenation, is a non-invasive process which helps to improve your skin’s appearance and texture.

IPL/Laser Hair Removal
The light energy is absorbed by areas of high pigment such as hairs, which are therefore heated up. The heat damages the follicle, slowing hair growth and even preventing it completely.
The IPL laser treatment works by targeting the hair roots and destroying them so the hair no longer grows or significantly reduces growth.
IPL works like a spotlight on a stage, targeting very specific areas (which is why it’s effective in treating pigmentation and redness) and it emits wavelengths that target pigment for hair removal.
