Is IPL Safe for all skin type?
IPL is the first photorejuvenation and photoepilation procedure proven to effectively treat unwanted hair on all skin type, including dark-skinned individuals such as those of Black, Hispanic and Asian descent. Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle. All without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Benign Vascular Lesions: Broken Veins and Capillaries
The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break, appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
Redness Caused by Broken Capillaries
Many people suffer from broken capillaries and diffuse erythema, that cause them social embarrassment. For both women and men, IPL can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.
