IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a technology used to treat a variety of conditions, including excessive or unwanted hair, pigmentation, acne and rosacea. IPL utilises pulses of broad-spectrum light to target different skin pigments and reduce the severity of specific conditions. For vascular lesions such as rosacea and telangiectasias (spider and varicose veins) the light pulses target the haemoglobin in the blood, heating it and destroying the pigment without affecting the skin. Pigmented lesions such as freckles, age spots, or birthmarks involve heating and destroying the melanin, thus reducing discolouration, while treatments focused on the reduction and removal of unwanted hair uses the pulses of light to heat the hair follicle at its root, causing it to fall out and reducing further growth.
Accent on Image boasts an Anthélia IPL machine, built by French company EFB. The Anthélia is the latest and greatest IPL technology on the market, and is suitable for treating most pigment related conditions, including rosacea, acne, red vein removal, and excessive or unwanted hair.
The Anthélia has an advantage over other IPL machines in that it can provide treatment for those with light coloured hair or darker skin tones, something that traditional IPL machines have not been able to do. With the advanced performance comes advanced results, that are faster, with fewer treatments required, especially for courses.
