Using Infrared Light for Cosmetic Treatment
There are several forms of light energy being utilised in medical and cosmetic fields, of which the IR spectrum is one of the most commonly used. The IR spectrum is not visible to the human eye. However, this type of light energy can penetrate our skins on a non-surgical manner. By generating intense light pulses, a Palomar IPL hand-held device can effectively treat various skin-related issues on the surface and sub-surface areas of your skin. These issues include freckles, sun damage, and brown spots on the surface of the skin.
How Can Intense Pulsed Light Work for Me?
When light from the IR spectrum hits our skin, the energy is converted into heat energy, which allows the energy to bypass the skin’s surface and target sub-surface areas as well. However, the heat can damage the surface of the skin. Therefore, these devices feature sapphire cooling tips, along with an advanced cooling system, to ensure that the surface of your skin stays cool and undamaged during treatment. Apart from treating surface-related issues, IPL photo-rejuvenation can also target skin redness, rosacea, spider veins, and capillaries.
Is IPL Treatment Safe and Effective?
IPL treatment has come a long way in terms of development and safety. With the according eye protection, we can use IPL treatment in facial areas to treat various problems by utilising IR light as opposed to any surgical or invasive solution. IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment utilises a range of wavelengths to address specific issues on the surface and sub-surface of your skin. The heat energy also stimulates the collagen production of your skin for a more youthful and rejuvenated surface profile. Collagen plays a vital role to the overall health of our skins, as it acts as the main structural protein in the dermis and epidermis.
The Palomar IPL hand-held device that we use for IPL photo-rejuvenation features an onboard computer that controls the wavelengths that are produced by this device. Therefore, the treatment is safe and effective, as it targets specific cells underneath the surface of the skin without any physical invasion. With its advanced cooling system, it protects the surface of the skin, ensuring that the treatment does not cause any additional damage due to overheating the surface of the skin.
