What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment?
IPL is a non invasive medical technology that uses light therapy for multiple cosmetic uses in clinics. These include:
- Permanent Hair Reduction
- Removing Age (liver) Spots
- Sun Spots
- Freckle Removal
- Regulate Pigment (colour) on the Skin (Dyschromia)
- Vascular Treatments (including spider veins)
- Treating benign vascular lesions
- Rosacea Treatments
- Acne Treatments
How does IPL work?
Like laser, IPL works on a similar principal where light energy is absorbed into certain targeted cells with chromophore (colour) in the skin. The light is then converted to heat, which damages the target cells, rederring it incapable of performing its regular duty (perhaps producing hair or colour). This action is limited to the target site only and the surrounding skin is unaffected.
- Laser Hair Reduction for All Skin Types
Permanently reduce unwanted hair from most parts of the body using laser technology. Lasers provide an effective alternative to traditional hair removal methods by targeting the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. All skin colors, from light to dark skin color and hair characteristics can be treated. SkinMD Seattle uses the Nd:YAG and diode lasers, which allow us to tailor hair reduction treatments to the unique needs of all our patients.
We use laser hair reduction to eliminate unwanted hair on various parts of the body, including underarms, legs, lips and chin as well as bikini area. The most common areas requested by men are back, chest and abdomen.
