IPL laser treatment...

How does IPL work, and what does it do?

Cosmetic flaws may be caused by hereditary, medication, pregnancy or environmental factors. Yet most vascular and pigmented lesions are ideal candidates for non invasive AFT pulsed light treatments. The widest range of benign vascular lesions can be safely and effectively treated with IPL. In addition, pigmented lesions and sun damage can also be treated successfully. The selective pulsed light energy is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging the healthy skin. Selectively heating and closing off blood vessels, AFT pulsed light reduces the lesions, while sparing nearby tissue from injury. With pigmented lesions, the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective. The aim of the treatment is to improve the overall complexion.

What are benign vascular and pigmented lesions?

Benign vascular lesions, red in colour, are caused by abnormal clustering of blood vessels. Pigmented lesions, less widespread, are clusters of melanin in the skin and are brown in colour. While some lesions may fade, others become more pronounced over time.

What to expect?

Patients must have a consultation to their course of treatment and to have a patch test. The treatment plan is set according to the characteristics, such as size, location, depth in the skin, skin type. Most lesions can be treated within a half hour, and for best results, repeated treatments are required. Before the treatment a cold gel is applied to the treatment area. Then the physician delivers precise intense pulsed light to the target area. The patient feels a slight slap depending on the strength of the treatment. The skin can be red afterwards and the pigmented /vascular lesions will appear darker and gradually surface and peel off.

Who can be treated and which parts of the body?

It is not advised to have the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also not advisable to treat an area that has recently been injected with another type of filler. Injecting can set of a trigeminal neuralgia, if there is a history of such. Taking steroids, aspirin or anticoagulants can cause complications and it needs to be assessed. Any history of cancer in the face or other implants also needs to be discussed.
