IPL – Intense Pulse Light
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is not a typical laser. It emits energy similar to laser energy but with a greater range. A broad spectrum of light waves of various lengths reaches the skin layers at various depths. Additionally, appropriate filters allow obtaining the optimal spectrum of light needed to remove a specific change.rnrnThe treatments performed with the use of IPL devices not only improve the appearance and elasticity of the skin but also heal it.
For whom is the IPL treatment?
The undoubted advantage of treatments with IPL devices is that they are non-invasive and can be used at any age, even for preventive purposes. They are recommended for both women and men.

The course of the IPL procedure
The IPL laser treatment consists of irradiating a specific area of the skin with short pulses of light. It does not require anesthesia, although a slight burning sensation may be felt in the exposed areas. After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red, and the epidermis may be slightly peeled off. Nevertheless, these symptoms disappear quickly. In order to obtain satisfactory results, the treatment should be repeated several times (2-5) every 3-4 weeks.
