What is Cosmetic Laser Treatments?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) refers to advanced laser technology that delivers light energy in short pulses that can penetrate deep into the skin. IPLs are different from other lasers because they use a broad range of wavelengths, while most lasers operate on just one wavelength.
Each differently colored pigment absorbs a different wavelength, so the IPL can treat multiple skin discolorations with one treatment. Your skin doesn’t absorb the light energy, however, so treatment doesn’t harm the surrounding tissues.
As the targeted pigment absorbs the pulsed light, it’s heated to a temperature that makes the pigment break down. As your body gradually removes the cellular waste, the problem areas disappear permanently.
The Icon IPL is also equipped with the Skintel™ Melanin Reader™, which ensures the best setting for determining the pigment’s density.
