HOW IPL Works?

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.

What is IPL?

– IPL = Intense Pulsed Light

– Non-Coherent, Visible and near infra-red light, 450-1200 nm

  • Efficacious
  • Flexible
  • Safe

How IPL Works?

Selective Photothermolysis

  • Specially selected wavelengths of light penetrate the skin
  • Target (hemoglobin, melanin) absorbs the light with minimal epidermal/dermal absorption
  • Light is converted to heat, destroying the vessel or lesion
  • Damaged tissue is removed by the body

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

Erbium Yag: Skin Resurfacing/Ablative


Spectrum Erbium Yag Laser How It Works?

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.

Q-Switched Yag: Tattoo Removal


Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Laser

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.



How The Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Works?


  • Targets tattoo pigment in epidermis and in the dermis
  • The Q-Switched Laser “fractures” pigment into particles small enough for macrophages to remove from treatment site to lymph nodes

Q-Switched Nd:YAG Mechanism

The Spectrum Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is attracted to and interacts with the tattoo ink particles


Photo-Acoustic Shock


Using high-intensity photo-acoustic shock waves, the Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Laser shatters the tattoo ink into tiny fragments.

Long Pulsed Yag 1064: Vein Treatments with cooling tip

Spectrum Long Pulsed Yag How it works?

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.


Spectrum Long Pulsed Yag with Contact Cooling

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.

810 Diode: Hair Reduction with cooling tip

How Laser Hair Removal Works? 

  • Laser energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle and converted to heat, injuring the follicle.
  • Most hair is permanently removed. Hair that does regrow is finer and lighter than before.

– Three phases of normal hair growth:

  • Anagen (active)
  • Catagen (regression)
  • Telogen (resting)

– Follicle most susceptible during anagen phase

  • 1/3 to 2/3 of hair is in Anagen phase at any time
  • Hair has most melanin in the bulb during Anagen phase and absorbs the most energy to disable stem cells

Spectrum 810-Diode Delivery System

The comfortable delivery system is lightweight and glides over any anatomic location.
