IPL is particularly suited for effective and lasting treatment of pigmented lesions. IPL targets melanin with light within the benign 400 – 1200nm light spectrum. This allows for effective coagulation of the target while optimizing safety by completely avoiding the UV exposure present in lower wavelengths. The added heat value of IPL further raises the core temperature, achieving coagulation without resorting to potentially dangerous high fluence levels. Once coagulated, the lesion is sloughed away by the body’s natural healing process within 2 weeks of the treatment.
IPL directly targets melanin found in pigmented lesions.
The treated cells are naturally eliminated by the body and replaced with new cells.
