Intense pulsed light is a device that emits a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by different targets in the skin, while leaving its surface intact. Targets such as melanin and certain blood cells present in brown spots, red spots and dilated vessels are selectively destroyed.
What's more, the heat produced by the flash lamp stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Intense pulsed light allows you to:
Lighten freckles and sun spots
Illuminate the complexion
Stimulate collagen production
Tighten dilated pores
Improve skin elasticity and quality
The flash lamp or intense pulsed light is a device that emits a broad spectrum of light, unlike a laser beam, which emits a single colour. For this reason, this treatment can only be used on fair skin (phototypes 1, 2 and 3).
Any UV exposure (sun, solarium) 6 weeks before and after treatment
Open wounds or skin infections in the area to be treated
Photo-sensitising medication and any self-tanning cream
Please don’t hesitate to book a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss any of our treatments.
