When addressing pigmentation concerns with IPL technology, the Intense pulsed light system releases precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the melanin in freckles, sun spots and liver spots. The pigmented area absorbs the light and is heated to the point that the skin renews itself with fresh and healthy regenerated cells. Following treatment, the pigmented area turns darker and crusting is completely normal. Over the following weeks, the pigmented area will gradually flake away from the skin leaving little trace of the original mark.
Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has sun spots, freckles or skin discolorations that they’d love to get rid of and treatment with an IPL machine is a professional, cutting-edge and effective means of achieving this. Clients will require a treatment cycle that consists of a series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced four weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Results can be visible as soon as the first treatment.
Common pigmentation treatment areas include the back of hands, forearms, décolleté and face.
