IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) flash lamps are used in cosmetic laser treatments such as skin rejuvenation, hair removal, tattoo removal and acne treatment.
How do IPL flash lamps work?
IPL flash lamps work by emitting a broad range of wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the skin, where they are transformed into heat energy. This heat energy is then used to target specific skin cells or hair follicles, depending on the treatment being performed.
What are the benefits?
Intense Pulsed Light flash lamps offer several benefits that make them suitable for various cosmetic and dermatological treatments. Here are some advantages of IPL flash lamps:
1. IPL flash lamps can emit a broad spectrum of light with various wavelengths, typically ranging from 500 to 1200 nanometers (nm). This versatility allows them to target different chromophores in the skin, including melanin (pigment), hemoglobin (blood vessels), and collagen (connective tissue). As a result, IPL flash lamps can be used for multiple cosmetic treatments, such as hair removal, skin rejuvenation, treatment of vascular lesions (e.g., spider veins) and pigmented lesion removal.
2. IPL treatments using flash lamps are non-invasive, meaning they do not require surgical incisions or significant recovery time. The short pulses of light emitted by IPL flash lamps target specific chromophores in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This results in minimal downtime and allows patients to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
3. IPL flash lamps are designed to deliver wide beams of light, which allows for the treatment of larger areas of the body in a relatively short time. For example, during hair removal treatments, IPL flash lamps can cover larger areas like the back, legs, or chest, resulting in faster treatment sessions compared to other hair removal methods.
