The treatment of various skin related issues using high-intensity visible light pulses is known as skin pulse treatment. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy also known as flashlamp therapy is done using a flashgun which is hand held and controlled by a computer. This emits high-intensity visible light with a spectrum ranging from 400 to 1200 nm. This is similar to a laser in the sense that both use heat and light causing destruction to their targets. IPL is used by various dermatologists for hair removal, and treating photodamages, acnes, vascular and pigmented lesions, freckles, wrinkles and many other skin problems. IPL is used for both cosmetic and medical purposes. IPL skin rejuvenation or photo rejuvenation is basically IPL for the face. It is also known as photo facial. The latest in dermatology, it is a gentle treatment which helps to reduce sun damage, red spots, and controls flushing, making the skin less oily, reducing redness, and controlling broken blood vessels in the face, neck and chest. This treatment is to be done for a period ranging from 3 to 5 months for effective results.
