How does it work?

The working basis of IPL is actually based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. As IPL system delivers multiple wavelengths in each pulse of light, it is able to target three main chromophores which are melanin, haemoglobin and water at once. When the light energy is absorbed by the chromophores, it will be converted into heat, which causes changes to the specific target area. Tissues surrounding these targeted structures are spared, so potentially reduce the risk of widespread thermal injury.

It will treat:

  • Benign pigmentation: freckles, solar lentigines etc.
  • Poikiloderma of Civette
  • Telengiectasia
  • Cherry angioma
  • Spider angioma
  • Flushing of Rosacea

Expectation of Results

In treating pigmentation
The mechanism of action of IPL in treating pigmentation is the result of rapid differentiation of keratinocytes induced by thermal heating. The upward transfer of melanosomes will help in elimination of those pigments as the microcrust is removed from the skin surface.

In treating vessel
In treating vascular lesions, light energy is absorbed by haemoglobin and blood vessel temperature is raised to cause coagulation. Then, vessel destruction and replacement by fibrous granulation tissue will take place to “shut down” the unwanted vessel.

Rejuvenation
When the light energy is absorbed by water underneath our skin, it will cause heating of collagen fibres and boost up the collagen reproduction. This will result in skin tightening; reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the skin texture.
