Why Pulse Light Systems?
Palomar Pulsed Light Systems erase skin damage without disrupting the skin surface. They are able to treat a wide range of problems to improve texture and complexion. The system is up to 10 times faster than laser treatment, is long lasting, and is relatively painless. It produces smoother, even toned and more youthful skins and allows normal activities to resume immediately.
Will the treatment hurt?
Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use a unique long pulse width that delivers energy to the skin over a relatively long period of time. This makes the pulses safer and comfortable. You may experience a feeling similar to that of a rubber band being snapped on the skin, but most people do not report this sensation as painful.
Are there any adverse reactions to treatment?
You may experience temporary redness and a mild “sunburn” like effect that may last anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
How long do hair removal treatments last? How many will I need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the person, the body part being treated and how much of the hair is in the active phase of growth. Sessions can last from a few minutes to more than an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. Your treatment provider will be able to give you a better assessment after consultation
What body areas can I get treated for hair removal and skin rejuvenation?
Any area except around the eyes. The underarms, legs, back, bikini line, face, neck etc can all be treated. IPL treatments have proven effective on a wide range of hair colours from auburn to brown and dark black hair. Any hair with at least some pigment can be treated. White and light blond hairs can not be effectively treated due to their lack of pigment.
What happens during a treatment?
Before each session begins, system settings are computer customised according to skin colour and type and the area of the body being treated. Treatment begins by shaving or trimming away any hair above the surface of the skin and then conducting test spots to determine the patient’s skin response to different machine settings. Patients wear special eyewear to protect their eyes from the bright light. The device hand piece is moved over the treatment area while light-based energy is emitted in highly controlled flashes or pulses.
