What is the intensed pulsed light (IPL) irradiation?
Intense pulsed light is the use of intense pulses of non-coherent light distributed over a range of wavelengths from 500 nm to 1200 nm, for rejuvenate skin and other aesthetic purposes. The PhotoDynamic Skin Rejuvenation is an innovative technique that combines two essential elements: the use of a photosensitive substance and intense pulsed light (IPL) irradiation. This combination selectively eliminates the tissue that has been damaged by the sun and promotes the generation of exceptionally high levels of collagen through biochemical reactions which occur when the cream is applied on the areas affected by the atopic cells. This is why the therapy is three times as effective as conventional pulsed light by eliminating skin aging and sun spots.
Moreover, at SHA Wellness Clinic we combine this technique of IPL with strategic injections of hyaluronic acid to exponentially increase their profits on our skin and fight more effectively against problems such as spots and blemishes, pigmentation changes, dilated blood vessels, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin… they are all signs of damaged skin which not only make us look much older at this time of the year but can also lead to skin cancer.
After the realization of this PhotoDynamic Skin Rejuvenation treatment with IPL technique, it is recommended keeping the treated area completely out of the sun for at least 48h; the treatment should be repeated one month after the first session for the most damaged areas.
PhotoDynamic Rejuvenation was a huge scientific breakthrough for treating the most superficial types of skin cancer and pre-malignant skin lesions without having to resort to surgery. Nowadays, having realised that it eliminates precancerous lesions, favours healthier skin by improving its tone, texture and its elasticity plus the fact that it eliminates the damage done by UVA/UVB rays by stimulating the production of collagen, it is also used in aesthetics.
