Sorry, nothing in cart.
IPL machines are designed to produce a range of wavelengths of harmless visible light for various treatments. Yes, IPL is visible light. Nothing more. And it can transform your skin for good. Here’s how.
IPL targets particular colors with specific wavelengths of light driven into the skin tissue by a unique concentrated flash mechanism. The light is then absorbed by the cells in and around the outer skin where resides the melanin of the hair bulbs, the hemoglobin of blood cells and water of the skin layers. Thus it effectively treats the skin as much as it removes hairs. Now it gets more interesting.
The IPL light is color and different colored targets absorb a different wavelength of light differently. Once the absorption occurs, the heating take place. We know the color of the melanin in the skin and that of the skin layers can be anywhere between white and black and the hemoglobin of the blood is red in color. The concept is simple.
Vary the light source for the light to get absorbed by only the hair bulb and you get hair removal results. Do the same for the light to get absorbed by the hemoglobin of the blood, you will induce skin’s natural collagen production. And finally, vary it to get absorbed by the skin layers and you will see improved blood flow to the skin and clearing of the pores. So effectively, different members of the IPL family works by targeting different chromophores (or color structures that are responsible for the different colors in the skin and the hair).
|Target of IPL light||Effect|
|Melanin of the hairs||Disables hair follicles if the hairs are in Anagen or growth phase. The growth phase is important because this when the hair will be physically attached to the hair follicles, so in growth phase, heating up the hair will heat up the follicles too.|
|Melanin of the skin||Shakes up the melanin content of the skin thereby achieving brighter skin with an even skin tone|
|Hemoglobin of cardiovascular vessels||Heating up the blood induces collagen production and increases blood flow to the skin making the skin more elastic and tight.|
As we all know, the IPL light however focused we target it, is prone to scattering and some of the functions above can easily overlap. The most noticeable of the results are the hair treatments not only removing hairs forever, but also leaving the skin brighter and fresher. This is where IPLis really different from Laser treatments.
Choosing to treat both the hairs and the skin at the same time is really a good practice as both the functions compliments each other very well and it actually enhances both. After all, once the hair removal process is done, you want a smooth and younger looking skin that compliments it.
VISS beauty understands this huge advantage for IPL treatments. And it is the reason why it offers not only the hair removal lamp cartridge, but two additional skin care lamp cartridges.
