How It Works
IPL technology allows the physician to select the wavelength and parameters appropriate to the specific type of pigmented lesion, depth and location.
During treatment, the IPL; wavelength is optimized so that the energy is absorbed only by the unwanted melanin, raising the temperature to cause shattering of the pigment.
Shortly after treatment, the unwanted pigment cells (or melanin) have been thoroughly fragmented without damage to the surrounding tissue.
In the weeks after treatment, the shattered melanin particles are eliminated through phagocytosis, whereby the fragmented pigments and damaged melanocytes are absorbed by the body. In most cases little or no trace of the initial lesion remains.
For Your Practice
Since cosmetic improvement is a major motivation for seeking removal of undesirable benign pigmented lesions, clinical effectiveness and a positive cosmetic outcome are important factors when evaluating the success of treatment. In an ever-growing market fueled by consumer demand, the ability to provide superior versatility, treatment efficacy and natural-looking skin are genuine patient benefits. Doing more for patients means seeing more patients, and satisfied patients means seeing them more often and their friends and family as well.
