Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a light energy that is applied to certain parts of the body, so that the target structure – whether it is hair or blood vessels in the skin – absorbs the energy and is destroyed. IPL uses a range of wavelengths across the red and yellow part of the visible electromagnetic spectrum.

When aiming for hair follicles, the aim is to heat the hair up as much as possible with the intense light, without damaging the skin. Research has shown that if the hair is darker than the skin, the hair conducts heat generated by the light energy longer than the skin does. Therefore, by giving three pulses of light in quick succession, each pulse lasting a fraction of a second heats up the hair follicle enough to destroy it, whilst protecting the surrounding skin.

Is IPL Treatment Painful?

No, our Clinician uses cooling rollers on the skin that is very soothing and cools the skin down. This also decreases the chance of redness after treatment. Different people have different skin colour, different hair colour and also different hair thickness. As such, our trained practitioners will assess your skin, colour of hair and thickness of hair to see what the appropriate settings and power are needed for your IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment.

Where Do Treatments Take Place? & Who Performs The Treatment?

Our treatments take place within a specialist laser and light treatment room within a confidential, professional environment. How many treatments you will need depends on your skin type, hair thickness and hair colour.
Our Clinician at AlignClinics is fully registered, qualified and insured to perform this highly specialised treatment as well as our other Laser Treatments.
