Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology with light beam utilized by restorative and aesthetic specialists to perform several different skin treatments for stylish and remedial purposes, including hair removal, photorejuvenation (for example the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins) also for some dermatologic diseases, like acne. IPL is progressively utilized in optometry and ophthalmology too.
The technology utilizes a powerful, hand-held, PC controlled flashgun to convey an extreme, visible, wide range beam of light, generally in the visible spectral range 400 to 1200 nm. Different cut-off filters are commonly used to specifically shift through shorter wavelengths, particularly the possibly harming ultra violet light. The subsequent light has a spectral range that aims particular structures and chromophores (for example melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in veins) that are warmed up to the point of destruction and reabsorbed by the body. IPL shares a few likenesses with laser treatments, in that the two of them utilize light to heat and affect their targets. But, not similar to lasers that utilize a single wavelength (color) of light which regularly matches just a single chromophore and therefore just treats one condition, IPL utilizes a wide range that when utilized with interchangeable filters, enables it to be utilized against several conditions. This can be accomplished when the IPL expert chooses the suitable filter that matches a particular chromophore
