Pigmentation therapy using IPL
Intense Pulsed Light systems release short pulses of filtered light that is readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.
A layer of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area. The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released.
A cool pack is then applied to the treated area. The area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. The lesions will darken and may appear more obvious before they fade or ‘flake’ away.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the pigmented lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions are required, at 4 to 6 week intervals. The Image Iluma skin care is recommended to use alongside the IPL treatment for optimum results.
