IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is an extremely popular, safe and effective technology used to perform various skin treatments and also for hair removal. The intense light from the machine is made up of a broad range of wavelengths which can be focused on the specific part of the body being treated. IPL is a great way to combat not only the signs of aging but also conditions such as rosacea, pigmentation, scarring, sun damage and is great for permanently reducing hair growth.
