IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is one of the latest technologies that have made a revolution in the cosmetic industry in the past twenty years. These days IPL treatments are side by side with the laser treatments due to the fact that the IPL provides the same results as laser treatments.
How IPL works?
This is a cosmetic procedure performed with special devices that emit broadband lights featuring high-focus pulses. The pulses are penetrated to the tissues of a specific area on the skin (forehead, neck, etc), where a controlled injury is created. The healing effects happen when the body reacts with its natural regenerating response, during which the treated tissue is removed. Also, this natural body reaction stimulates the growth of collagen and new cells what leads to improved the skin texture, tone and appearance.
