Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)


Pigmented lesions are hypermelanocytic areas typically induced by sun exposure, the natural aging process or congenital factors.


Pigmented lesions vary widely in size, shape and depth. They can be either raised or flat and are usually a cosmetic rather than a 
medical concern. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) targets the melanin and is effective in treating benign lesions and clearing them. 

The technology utilizes specific wavelength ranges to target various chromophores in the skin (such as sun damage and other hyperpigmentation). Broad spectrum pulsed light is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the relevant chromophores and damages them.  The body's natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
