The benefits of Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, technology are commonly used in the aesthetic industry to treat a wide range of skin conditions comfortably and with minimal to no recovery time. At Glow MediSpa, our Aesthelite IPL device can be used for safe and effective spot treatments, laser hair removal, and photofacials.
What is the Aesthelite IPL?
Although IPL treatments have been around for several years, the Aesthelite represents a new generation of IPL treatments that utilize cutting-edge technology for safer and better results. Featuring multiple wavelengths of broadband light that can be customized to the individual, the Aesthelite IPL is a multi-application system that has several indications:
- Photofacials: For wrinkles, lines, and other visible signs of aging as well as facial redness and discoloration, the broadband light penetrates below the epidermis and causes collagen and blood vessels to constrict, targeting skin conditions at the source.
- Spot treatment: Pigmented and vascular lesions can also be reduced quickly and effectively with no damage to surrounding healthy skin or tissues.
- Hair removal: Another application of the Aesthelite system is for the comfortable, non-irritating removal of unwanted body hair. Treatment options can be discussed during your consultation.
How Does the Aesthelite IPL Work?
As with traditional IPL treatments, the Aesthelite is a light-based treatment that uses a specially-designed handpiece to deliver broadband light to treated areas. Prior to treatment, a photoreactive substance is applied to targeted areas and allowed to penetrate below the surface. When the IPL is applied, the substance is activated, targeting unwanted hair, lesions, and signs of aging while maintaining the integrity of the skin and tissues.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
The skin of treated areas may appear pink or slightly flushed after treatment, which is common and should subside within a day or so. The Aesthelite IPL’s three-layer filtration technology ensures that only designated areas are treated with the broadband light, protecting the rest of the body as well as the technician. The built-in safety features and cooling technology ensure that the skin is not overheated or damaged during treatment.
During your consultation, our medical team will evaluate several factors such as your overall health, medical history, skin condition, treatment expectations, and other factors to determine if you are a good candidate for Aesthelite IPL treatment.
