Advancements in the field of non-surgical skin treatments have grown exponentially across North America, increasing the demand for Intense Pulse Light treatment as a result. IPL Skin Treatments have the unique capacity to treat multiple conditions. Treatments using the IPL technology have proven to improve the appearance of photoaged skin, age spots, sun spots, sun damaged (or sun-induced) freckles, vascular changes, broken capillaries through a photorejuvenation process for the face and body as well as treating red scars and stretch marks. IPL also treats hyperpigmentation and can be used for Hair Removal. IPL systems produce flashes of Intense pulse light at different wavelengths, unlike lasers, which produce light of just one wavelength. The intense light emitted by an IPL device is absorbed by pigments in the skin cells and converted to heat, directly impacting the targeted tissue.

Medicam, an ISO certified company was able, through its Research center (MRC), to provide its customers with the most advanced technology in the IPL industry. Unlike 99% of other North American Manufacturers or distributors, Medicam received, CE Medical, Health Canada and Food and Drug Administration in the United States (FDA) clearance on all its line of IPL and on all treatments, not only for Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation but also for Acne, Pigmentation, Vascular and Skin Tightening treatments. The extensive range of approved treatments using any of the Medicam Devices can be found on the official FDA website at: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/pdf11/K111350.pdf

This non-invasive, gentle approach uses targeted flashes of light to treat dilated and broken blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin. Flashes of light of selected wavelengths are shined on the skin. Dark spots and blood vessels selectively take up the energy generated by the light. In addition, the light energy may lead to increased collagen production, believed to improve superficial wrinkles. IPL therapy is referred to as a “non-ablative” resurfacing technique because it affects the lower layers of skin (dermis) without damaging the upper layers of skin (epidermis). The results are not as dramatic as ablative resurfacing with lasers would be.

According to a recent INFORUM.com article by Dr. Susan Mathison, “My favorite laser for redness and brown sun spots is Intense Pulse Light, IPL for short. It’s also called Photo-facial, Foto-facial or Photo-rejuvenation. It is basically a broad band laser with multiple wavelengths of light, making it very versatile for improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin, as well as diffusing redness and facial telangiectasias. IPL treatments may be done every 3 to 4 weeks in a series so that we can build on the energy delivered. With treatment, the laser energy shuts down the blood vessel (or vessels) in question. But since the body likes to “repair” itself by forming new blood vessels to compensate for those shut down, treating broken capillaries and facial redness requires maintenance.”

Among the various reasons and benefits for those seeking Intense Pulse Light treatment, skin rejuvenation and skin tone enhancement are high on the list. The technology has come a long way, having since made notable strides in the skin care industry. IPL technology today stands out because of its simplicity in practice and the variety of treatments its spectrums of alternating wavelengths can permeate.
