The Power of Intense Pulsed Light
A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of coherent monochromatic light and is commonly used for medical and cosmetic procedures. By utilising the power of light energy and photons, various cells can be targeted without physically penetrating the body. Palomar’s range of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hand-held devices are some of the most advanced lasers on the medical market today. We offer a selection of cosmetic treatments that utilise the Palomar IPL devices to address issues such as facial veins.
The process of photo-rejuvenation targets damaged blood cells underneath the surface of the skin. The Lux G can generate a variety of wavelengths, making it much more advanced than a regular laser. The hand-held device emits high-intensity light pulses that can target damaged blood vessels underneath the surface of the skin without harming the skin or other healthy cells in its way. The device features an onboard computer that determines the wavelength and intensity at which the light pulses on the surface of the skin. Therefore, it can treat redness and surgical scars as well.
The Efficiency of Energy Conversion
Lasers emit light energy, as is the case with the Palomar IPL hand-held devices. IPL face vein removal utilises the process of light energy being converted into heat energy to collapse damaged blood vessels underneath the surface of the skin. Once the emitted light energy penetrates the skin on the applicable area, the energy is converted into heat energy, transporting the energy safely to the targeted areas to collapse blood vessels that create visible veins on the surface of the skin. Therefore, it is considered a non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic treatment.
Can I Expect any Pain or Discomfort?
Since light energy converts into heat energy in this instance, you can expect that the treated area of your skin will be exposed to heightened levels of heat. Therefore, we recommend keeping the treated area cool before and after the treatment. This will help with any pain or discomfort caused by the heat energy travelling through your skin. Palomar IPL devices also address this problem by having a sapphire cooling contact tip to keep the surface of the skin cool during treatment. The pulsed light can be described as a rubber band hitting the surface of the skin. Therefore, you can expect minimal pain or discomfort during IPL treatments.
