What is Intense Pulsed Light?

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is the process of using specific wavelengths of light to provide a range of aesthetic and therapeutic treatments.

IPL is different to laser based therapies that only produce a single wavelength of light and can therefore only treat a specific condition.

The SkinBase IPL can be used for a wide range of treatments including hair reduction, photorejuvenation, acne and vascular lesions.

The SkinBase IPL also features a unique cooling cryo-handset. The cryo-handset creates an anaesthetic effect on the skin surface to provide the most comfortable treatment experience.

 
 

How does IPL work?

Unlike laser based therapies that can only treat a specific condition, the SkinBase™ IPL uses cut off filters to provide a range of wavelengths.

These cut off filters selectively filter out the unwanted wavelengths of light. The remaining light is then used to treat a specific structure.

In the case of photorejuvenation the light energy targets the red blood cells in the blood vessels. The light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the vessel wall or pigment. This heat energy causes damage to the vessel or pigment and the body’s natural repair mechanisms take over and remove the damaged tissue. The results are fresher looking & smoother skin.

When used for hair reduction the light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and is converted into heat. This damages the follicle making it unable to support further hair growth. The number of treatments required will vary but you should expect to see significant results within 3-6 treatments. A full course of 6 to 10 treatments may be required to achieve long lasting results. Treatments should be no more than every 3-4 weeks on each area being treated.

 
 

Who is IPL for?

The SkinBase IPL can be used for a wide range of treatments making it an option for all skin types of all ages. Pigmentation, unwanted hair, thread veins, acne or improving general skin tone and fine lines, are just a few of the treatments available with the SkinBase IPL.

Some less advanced IPL systems can only be used on a limited amount of skin types but the SkinBase IPL has been clinically proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin.

Unlike other IPL systems, the SkinBase IPL system allows the practitioner to fine tune the settings to suit specific skin and hair combinations and obtain the best results possible.

Your IPL practitioner will carry out a comprehensive consultation and patch test and advise you of the results you can expect to achieve.
