Whether born with them or acquired over the course of lifetime, virtually everyone who reaches middle age gets there with one or more types of benign pigmented and superficial vascular lesions. IPL technology is extraordinarily versatile and customisable. The technology also provides solutions for a wide range of conditions and cosmetic flaws using a single device in the nurse’s office. IPL’s broad spectrum affords the nurse:
- An unrivaled menu of capabilities and the flexibility to switch easily among the modes of treatment.
- Effective treatment of both dark and light skin types, leaving the area smooth and evenly coloured.
- Removal of large numbers of spots in the single session with less time per patient than other treatment approaches.
- Increased treatment services to a greater number of patients.
How VascuLight™ Works
Unlike a laser’s single monochromatic wavelength. IPL technology allows the nurse to select wavelength and parameters appropriate to the specific condition, depth and location.
Vascular & Pigmented Lesions Summary
In an ever-growing market fueled by consumer demand, the ability to provide superior versatility, and treatment efficacy are genuine patient benefits.
The IPL wavelength is optimised so that the energy is absorbed only by the unwanted melanin, raising the temperature to cause shattering of the pigment.
Shortly After Treatment
The unwanted pigment cells (or melanin) have been thoroughly fragmented without damage to the surrounding tissue.
In The Weeks After Treatment
The shattered melanin particles are eliminated through phagocytosis, whereby the fragmented pigments and damaged melanocytes are absorbed by the body. Little or no trace of the initial lesion remains.
