IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL Photorejuvenation is recognised as an effective treatment for facial redness, flushing, broken veins, Rosacea, pigmentation and sun damage. A welcome addition to this, IPL will stimulate collagen production resulting in a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in skin texture.
IPL is similar to a laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash.The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin.
Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots IPL is not recommended for people who tend to get thick, raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones.
