The Power of Intense Pulsed Light
Science has proven that light is a form of energy that can be utilised for various medical applications. The Palomar medical laser is one of the most advanced systems on the market today. By utilising the power of intense pulsed light, this device can serve as a means for various cosmetic treatments as well. Our IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment is a cosmetic treatment that addresses various skin-related issues such as sun damage, brown spots, and freckles. Apart from pigmentation-related issues, it can also address vascular abnormalities. These include spider veins, skin redness, broken capillaries, and rosacea.
Since the Palomar IPL hand-held device produces light energy, it can penetrate the surface of the skin with ease. The sapphire treatment tips, in conjunction with an advanced cooling system, protects the epidermis and delivers a more comfortable treatment. The purpose of such a treatment is to stimulate any dormant skin cells on the treated areas. It also promotes collagen growth for a healthier skin structure. Collagen is the prominent structural protein that is most common in connective tissues in the human body. Therefore, by promoting collagen growth, you can expect rejuvenated and healthier skin in the treated areas.
How Does Light Energy Work in This Instance?
White light can be broken up into a full spectrum of light, consisting of 7 prominent colours that are visible to the human eye. When taking a closer look, these colours are represented through sine waves that vary in frequency. The lower the frequency, the easier it is to manipulate and bend the wave. Other forms of light energy also exist that are not visible to the human eye. This includes the IR spectrum, which is commonly used in a wide variety of medical devices and systems.
The Palomar IPL system produces intense light pulses that hit the surface of the skin directly. Since it is light energy, it passes through the initial surface of the skin to target the cells in the skin tissue that is directly underneath. The pulses are controlled by the onboard computer of the hand-held device to deliver optimal results and treatment options for people suffering from pigmentation-related issues or vascular abnormalities. Light energy also emits heat, which is why the Palomar IPL system features a special cooling system to ensure that the surface of your skin is not damaged during the process. It also adds some comfort to the treatment.
