Permanent Hair Removal & Skin Treatments

IPL- Intense Pulsed Light system is used for hair removal & skin treatments such as: Thread vein removal, pigmentation, age spots, acne & others...

IPL produces a high intensity flash of filtered light from the applicator head, which has been placed in contact with the skin. The energy from the light source is absorbed by the pigment melanin, which is the chromophore, which gives hair its colour. The hair rapidly absorbs this filtered light and transfers it to the surrounding cells that in turn are converted into heat raising them to a temperature of 70 degree Centigrade or more. The heating denatures the cells making them incapable of producing further hair growth.

Different filters & applicators are used for different skin problems.
