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.

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
