Spectrum Intense pulsed light (IPL) is used to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic uses including hair removal, photo-rejuvenation, the removal and reduction of vascular and pigmented lesions and the reduction of active acne.
The technology utilizes a broad spectrum light-source, with a general spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm. Various cutoff filters are placed in front of the light-source to filter the undesired frequencies and allow the desired wavelength to target specific structures and chromophores in the skin.
– IPL = Intense Pulsed Light
– Non-Coherent, Visible and near infra-red light, 450-1200 nm
The Spectrum IPL destroys the primary target (Vessel, Pigment or Hair) by heating it to a high enough temperature without damaging the surrounding tissue.
In order to destroy the target you must reach it…
TARGET can be a vessel, pigment or hair
Human skin is made up of approximately 64% water. The Erbium Laser energy is attracted to the water in our skin. The energy is then captured in the epidermis and dermis skin layers creating a thermal injury which causes changes in the skin. Once injured, the skin begins a very rapid process of repair.
The Erbium Laser has a High Affinity Absorption for Water. The Top Layer of Tissue Is Dusted off or Ablated. Heat Is Then Put to the Dermal Tissue to Stimulate Collagen Realignment.
The Spectrum offers 2-different wavelengths (1064nm and 532nm). The 1064nm reduces/removes most dark colored tattoo inks and the 532nm reduces/removes most vibrant colored tattoo inks.
The Spectrum Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is attracted to and interacts with the tattoo ink particles
Using high-intensity photo-acoustic shock waves, the Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Laser shatters the tattoo ink into tiny fragments.
Four treatments 8 weeks apart
The Spectrum Nd:YAG laser penetrates through the skin and is readily absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin chromophores (veins and vascular lesions).
The Laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. After heating, the vein walls collapse and seal shut. The sealed vein is then broken down and absorbed by the body.
The Spectrum Long Pulsed Yag removes unsightly facial veins and small vascular lesions from any area of the body. Treatments can be performed quickly and without bruising. In addition, spider veins and large blue leg veins (3mm and under) can also be treated with Spectrum Long Pulsed Yag, yielding excellent results.
