Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
An all-time favourite among photo-facials
IPL use filtered non-coherent light to selectively destroy pigment cells, blood-filled capillaries and hair roots in a process called Selective Photothermolysis. Selective Photothermolysis brought about the development of a whole new field we now call "photo-rejuvenation".
Intense pulsed technology with Light-Touch System is a highly versatile, safe, and effective modality for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions, hypertrichosis, and epidermal and dermal atrophy associated with photoaging, as well as acne, rosacea, actinic keratoses, and nonmelanoma skin cancers. As our understanding of the biological efficacy of various wavelength distributions evolves, so to will the range of IPL technology, particularly with regard to different wavelength filters, pulse durations, pulse frequencies, and cooling modalities to protect from side effects. The end result using such an medical device Light-Touch System LITEC® is a widening domain of IPL’s clinical applications and indications.
