Types of Procedures
IPL skin rejuvenation
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated and you will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light.
The bright light with each pulse can be distracting, more than the sensation of the treatment.
The smooth glass surface of the handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. However, an anaesthetic cream is seldom required but can be used.
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
IPL can be combined with other therapies.
Our Alma Lasers Harmony IPL is also used in conjunction with our Ultherapy, Accent RF and Pixel treatment devices to combine therapies for the best results for your skin condition. Especially if your skin damage and ageing require a more robust set of treatment parameters.
Because the treatment is intended to bypass the upper layers of the skin without removing the skin, it is termed a non-ablative treatment. IPL focuses mostly on the dermis or middle layers of the skin.
- IPL target the cells with the pigment called melanin. The light from the laser damages primarily the area that’s targeted and has little effect on the surrounding areas.
- What makes it different from lasers is that it produces many wavelengths in each pulse, whereas a laser is one wavelength.
- Cold gels are used to coll and soothe the treated area.
