What Is Intense Pulsed Light Therapy?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses high-powered, hand-held flashguns to send pulses of light into the skin. The light uses a range of color wavelengths to reach multiple color molecules in the skin—mainly melanin, hemoglobin, and water. The flashgun works using bursts of electrical current passed through a xenon chamber, directed toward the hand piece, which then releases the energy pulse into the surface of the skin. The precise pulses of light target dark spots of skin, leading to the visual elimination of unwanted blood vessels, pigmented cells, and hair follicles.

By applying different filters, clinicians can selectively target desired cellular or structural elements within the skin depending on the problem. The team at Embody MedSpa goes through weeks of training for intense pulsed light in Reading, MA, and they know how to adjust filters with expertise. Meet our team of licensed medical aestheticians.

Apart from wavelength variations, we can also customize pulse duration, sequences, and delay time to give you a more precise experience. The individualization we put into our treatments is part of what makes Embody MedSpa a premier spa and wellness center throughout New England.

Intense Pulsed Light vs. Lasers

Clients at Embody MedSpa can do more than just remove skin pigmentations with intense pulsed light. North Reading, MA clients often choose IPL for permanent hair removal. IPL hair removal treatments are much different than laser hair removal, although the two accomplish the same end goal. IPL therapy is not the same as laser therapy. Although intense pulsed light works similarly to lasers, there are a few important differences:

  • The word laser is actually an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Both IPL and laser hair removal use heat and light to damage the hair follicle and reduce hair growth. However, intense pulsated light uses a lower temperature light.
  • A laser emits one concentrated wavelength of light while intense pulsed light contains multiple wavelengths in different colors.
  • IPL devices use a lamp to produce energy, thus resulting in a more diffused and less powerful penetration than lasers. Follicle penetration is more shallow than with laser hair removal, yet penetration is deep enough to improve skin texture.

Different forms of hair removal will work better for different skin tones, hair colors, and hair thicknesses. For the most effective means of hair removal for you, come to Embody MedSpa free skin assessment and consultation. We’ll take an in-depth look at your individual needs and hair removal goals and suggest whether we believe IPL therapy or laser hair removal is right for you.

Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

As one of the world’s leading technologies in cosmetic dermatology, intense pulsed light comes with many benefits. The advantages of choosing intense pulsed light in North Reading, MA are numerous:

  • Large skin surface area coverage. The multi-wavelength system of IPL covers much of the skin’s surface with each pulse, making treatments fast and easy while still treating a variety of skin conditions and large surface areas.
  • Melanin targeting. IPL works by targeting melanin, the element in your skin that creates dark spots. IPL targets and eliminates melanin from chronic sun exposure, including freckles, sun spots, and other dark spots.
  • Acne erasure. If you’re one of many Americans with mild to severe acne problems, including pockmarks and scarring from acne, IPL helps combat this condition and eliminate large pores.
  • Anti-aging capabilities. IPL does more than just remove dark spots on the skin—it also reduces or removes wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, spider veins, and age lines in the face, neck, and hands.
  • Skin texture improvement. IPL treats a slightly deeper layer of the skin. IPL photofacials stimulate collagen growth, simulating minor dermal injuries to improve skin texture.
  • Little to no downtime. Since IPL is a non-invasive procedure, clients have little to no recovery time afterward. You’re free to return to normal activities the same day and apply makeup right away if necessary.

Intense pulsed light therapy can solve many skin problems all at once and remove unwanted hair. It’s truly a comprehensive solution to dozens of different skin issues with next to no effort on your end. If you’re sick of trying to cover up or hide sun-damaged or blemished skin, it’s time to make a change.
