IPL Hair & Skin Treatments Perth

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense pulsed light, commonly abbreviated as IPL, is a technology used to perform various skin treatments including hair removal and photo rejuvenation. The technology utilises specific wavelengths of light to target various coloured tissues in the skin.

How Does It Work?

IPL handsets use a broad-spectrum light source, usually producing wavelengths between 500 and 1200 nanometers. Depending on the specific application, the spectrum can be limited using a range of filters.

In the case of hair removal, IPL targets melanin concentrations in the hair. Pigment molecules in the hair, most highly concentrated in the shaft and bulb, absorb the light energy. This heats the hair follicles and the heating effect destroys the hair papilla, a structure found at the base of the hair follicle that supplies the hair with nourishment and is essential for hair growth. In some cases, even the capillaries supplying the hair follicle can also be eliminated.
