What is IPL or Photofacial Technology?
IPL stands for Intense pulsed light and is a technology used by aesthetic and medical practitioners for skin treatments specifically customized to an individual patient’s needs. IPL can be used on the entire body and treats your face, neck, chest, back, arms, legs, hands, ears, lips, eyes, and feet.
IPL releases light in many different wavelengths. The light from IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin or the dermis. It does not harm the 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 can also destroy the hair follicles to prevent hair from growing again. You can use IPL anywhere on your body, but IPL isn’t recommended for those who have thick and raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones.
