HOW DOES IPL WORK?
IPL works by delivering high-intensity light energy to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the targeted areas of the skin, such as sunspots or capillaries, and is converted into heat. This heat then damages the targeted tissue, causing it to break down and be absorbed by the body's natural processes. IPL specifically targets the problem areas on the skin, encouraging your body to produce new collagen, heal damaged tissue and remove the imperfections.
IPL AND SUN DAMAGE
In terms of sun damage, IPL can help to reduce the appearance of freckles, sunspots, and other signs of sun exposure. It does this by targeting the excess melanin in the skin, which is what causes these pigmented areas to appear. By breaking down the excess melanin, IPL can help to restore a more even skin tone and texture.
IPL AND CAPILLARIES
When it comes to capillaries / spider veins, IPL works by targeting the blood vessels that are causing the redness or visible veins. The light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, which then heat up and collapse. Over time, the body will absorb and remove the damaged vessels, leaving you with a smoother, more even complexion.
