What is IPL?SkinBase’s IPL can treat a wide range of skin concerns, as well as being a long-term solution for unwanted body hair. Safe and effective, it works by using light to target specific skin structures – and heating them to achieve a particular result. This medically-certified system uses a cooling handset to make sure each treatment is comfortable.
IPL for Hair RemovalThe best time to start the process of hair removal is in autumn. This gives your client plenty of time to prepare to be hair-free for next summer. Light energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle, and the heat destroys the follicle. This will stop any future hair growth. The length of the treatment depends on the size of the area being treated.
IPL for AcneWhen treating acne, the IPL machine releases yellow, green and red light in short pulses. Bacteria is destroyed and the red light targets overactive sebaceous glands that clog pores. The light stimulates collagen production which helps to improve any acne scarring. IPL can boost confidence and is an effective treatment for acne-prone skin.
IPL for PhotorejuvenationPhotorejuvenation helps pigmented and sun-damaged skin. IPL treatment targets age spots and pigmentation. It also encourages collagen production and new cell turnover. Requiring zero downtime, your client can even have this treatment during their lunch hour. They can return to work with improved skin tone and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.
IPL for Vascular LesionsYou can use IPL to treat thread veins, rosacea and angiomas. Light is applied to the area in a series of pulses. Blood vessels absorb the light – which heats them to the point of destruction. After treatment, the vessels clear and are reabsorbed by the body. There is little to no trace of the original lesion. IPL can also treat Thread veins – especially those on the cheeks and nose. Often caused by too much exposure to UV rays, these veins respond well to IPL.
