Intense Pulsed Light
*If you are bothered by the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, Hyperpigmentation or Rosacea, you may feel like you have tried everything to combat the symptoms. At Philosophy of Beauty, we understand how frustrating this can be and the impact it can have on an individual’s self-esteem, which is why we offer IPL treatment to effectively treat a number of common skin concerns.*
What is IPL?
*Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments are non-invasive skin- care procedures in which different wavelengths of light energy are emitted into the layers of the skin to treat various skin conditions. At Philosophy of Beauty we use superior technology offered by IPL Lumenis One to treat skin conditions such as Rosacea and Hyperpigmentation as well as for skin rejuvenation. The IPL Lumenis One is considered the 'Gold Standard' in Photorejuvenation treatments due to its proven efficacy and results.**IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Like laser treatments, IPL uses light and heat to break down the target area, however, IPL uses a broad spectrum of light, distinguishing it from laser treatments. This light is primarily absorbed by melanin and oxyhemoglobin and is effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, pigmentation, Rosacea, capillaries, and fine lines. When IPL is used to treat conditions related to sun induced skin damage, the process is known as Photorejuvenation.*
How does it work?
*During IPL treatments, a broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small handpiece, which is gently placed over the skin. Filters in the handpiece control the wavelength range, allowing it to be optimized according to different applications and skin types. As the light penetrates the tissue, it is absorbed by the blood or melanin, thereby damaging it. The body’s natural processes then work to remove the injured tissue, which results in a more even appearance to the skin.*

IPL for skin rejuvenation
*IPL Skin Rejuvenation, also known as Photorejuvenation, is a non-invasive treatment designed to stimulate and encourage healing and regeneration of skin through the application of a broad-spectrum light.**Some of the longer wavelengths in the IPL light work by deeply penetrating the skin to stimulate fibroblasts to produce extra collagen. This excess production of collagen serves to rejuvenate the skin by visibly improving its texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.*
