How it works?
The IPL emits a pulse of light at a wavelength that is absorbed by the treated area—whether it is melanin in a pigmented lesion, an unwanted hair or the haemoglobin in the blood vessels of capillary damage or leg veins. The heat causes the unwanted particles to break up into smaller particles which the body then removes via it’s natural waste processes. Unlike other pulsed light machines, the systems our nurses use are unique in that they balance the number, length and duration of each shot. This allows us to target and tailor the treatment to your specific needs to deliver better results. The treatment itself is tolerable and the length of time varies depending on the area being treated. For pigmentation and vascular treatments you can expect to see the results after a few days.
