Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
The IPL is not a laser.
The technology uses light of different wavelengths to treat various conditions such as hyperpigmentation, fine vessels on the face, and removal of hair.
There are several types of IPL machines, varying in intensity and complexity, which can be found anywhere from a beauty parlour to a doctor’s surgery. The difference is the safety, efficacy, and experience of the practitioner of the machine.
Our in house IPL is the Aurora from Syneron. It is unique in that it uses both light energy as well as radiofrequency. This allows maximal efficacy of treatment while minimising complications. It totally clears the skin of freckles and sun spots. It is also able to minimise redness associated with rosacea.
