Laser Hair Removal Technology

IPL Hair Removal

Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is an advanced hair removal light-based technology used by Advanced Laser Center, to provide variety of aesthetic treatments to patients including hair removal,  facial hair removal, skin tightening and photofacial treatments.*

IPL Hair Removal process

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) converts light energy into heat. The light targets the areas that contain melanin - or pigment - in your skin or hair. When the light encounters the areas with pigment, the light is then converted into heat which selectively heats and destroys the sun damaged or pigmented cells while simultaneously stimulating the fibroblasts in your skin to create new collagen.*

Different Wavelengths for Different Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light emits many different wavelengths of light and these different wavelengths are effective  for use on different targets such as hair removal, acne, rosacea  treatments and skin tightening. IPL can be used for any facial hair removal and body hair removal treatments with exception around the eyes.*
The treatment of different targets (blood, pigment, hair, acne) is accomplished by filtering the light source to emit only the particular wavelengths chosen for their level of effectiveness on the treatment target.*
For example, chromophores (the substances in skin which reflect color) such as age spots, freckles and mottled appearance of sun damaged skin - require a treatment that utilizes light filtered to include lower wavelengths from the available output spectrum. Hair removal requires a higher wavelength that travels deeper into the skin to target the pigmented root of the hair - and Veins require wavelengths that travel deeper yet to best target the blood they hold.*
