Intense Pulse Light Depth of Penetration by Wavelength

Here are some questions your potential clients may ask.

How does pulsed light technology work?

The pulsed light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process.

Is it safe?

The pulsed light's gentle energy parameters assure safe, effective treatment. Uniquely shaped pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.

Does it hurt?

Most people tolerate pulsed light treatments and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, though topical anesthetic is an option for sensitive areas.

What to expect during the treatment?

Photorejuvenation treatments range from 15 to 30 minutes. The treated area is cleansed and a cool gel is applied. The light pulse is then delivered with little or no discomfort. After treatment the gel is removed and the skin is cleansed. You can resume all regular activities immediately.

How many treatments are necessary?

Treatment generally involves a series of five sessions. You will generally do the treatments once a month and after the series is complete, you will return once every six months for maintenance.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are very rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker and capillaries may be more visible.

To help guarantee the best results, you must limit your exposure in the sun for several weeks before and after the treatments.
