Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) – Brisbane and Gold Coast
Sun exposure, environmental factors, pregnancy and ageing can contribute to the development of dark spots, skin pigmentation and freckles. Your face, hands and chest are the first parts of the body to show signs of ageing because they receive so much sun exposure. Age spots, skin pigmentation and freckles are caused by excess production of melanin in the skin.
Lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices have been used with great success to remove pigmented areas on the skin. Using this state of the art technology, charged energy light is selectively emitted and absorbed by the pigmented areas, sparing the normal surrounding skin. Topical remedies such as bleaching agents, glycolic acid, and retinoids can treat the visible skin pigmentation while IPL treats the cause under the skin.
IPL uses wavelengths of heated light which are directly aimed at the pigmented spots. The advantages of this technology include the fact that the pigment is able to be targeted precisely without damaging the surrounding tissue. Skin pigmentation in the face, neck, chest and hands can be treated safely and effectively.
IPL helps to rejuvenate the skin, improving its texture, visibly minimising pores and reducing superficial fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a more youthful, smooth appearance.
