IPL Permanent Hair Reduction
What is it?
PAINLESS HAIR REDUCTION
This treatment involves shooting light pulses on the part of the body to be depilated using a wavelength spectrum matched to the skin and hair type. The light energy is immediately converted into heat by the melanin (pigment) in the hair This is channelled
along the shaft of the hair down to the root and the underlying germ cel'ls. The thermal reaction here causes irreversible damage to the nutrient cells of the hair root - which are now unable to produce any more hairs.
It is possible to treat this unattractive skin condition cosmetically. This is done by shooting a controlled light pulse onto the affected area. The light pulse is absorbed in the dark-red. oxygen-rich blood of the vessel by the haemoglobin and converted into heat. This causes a sudden heating of the vessel. which clots the blood
and "welds" the vessel shut. The body's lymphatic system breaks down the coagulated blood into its constituent parts and transports them away naturally.
SKIN REJUVENATION, TIGHTEN & TONE
The gentle treatment offered by the devices from Cosmedico Medical Systems stimulates the formation of new collagen fibres. This has a visible smoothing effect on Ilines. Light energy is converted into heat. The energy this produces focuses on the deeper layers of the dermis, which contain the tear-proof collagen fibres and elastic fibres. The treatment stimulates the skin cells to start producing skin-tautening collagen and elastin
again. The result is healthy, young and fresh-looking skin.
Benign skin pigmentations can be treated very efficiently using SSR or IPL technology. This involves exposing excessive pigments to highly energetic intensive pulsed light. lhe light is absorbed by the melanin (the dark skin pigment in the skin) and converted into heat. The surrounding tissue is neither heated nor destroyed. The
conversion of energy into heat causes the pigment to clot: the melanin flocculates and is "drawn" to the epidermis. The pigment change is shed bit by bit in the form of tiny skin flakes.
Treating acne with SSR or IPL technology is all about fighting the propioni bacteria that cause the inflammation and reducing the size of the sebaceous glands and the quantity of sebum they produce. Porphyrins (naturally occurring molecules in the inflamed
acne) absorb light in the blue wavelength spectrum. When porphyrins absorb light in this wavelength spectrum. heat is produced. The photothermal process releases chemical substances that are able to selectively destroy the propioni bacterium.
