What is “Intense Pulsed Light”?

Intense Pulsed Light is based on the emission of polychromatic light that covers a broad spectrum. Intense Pulsed Light can be used to target hair pigmentation, red blood cell pigmentation or sun spots.

It’s a very versatile treatment.

Indications for Intense Pulsed Light

Facial erythrosis and rosacea: by targeting hemoglobin pigmentation, Intense Pulsed Light destroys visible, unsightly blood vessels on the face: nose, cheeks, forehead, chin, etc.

Sun spots, also known as actinic lentigos: The result of repeated exposure to the sun, they are most often found on the face, décolleté or hands. Treatment of the legs is also possible.

Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal: widely used in beauty salons for this indication, pulsed light is far less effective in this area than laser hair removal and should be preferred.

A partial removal of wrinkles can also be observed: but it also restores tension to the sagging facial tissues associated with skin aging. Again, since this beneficial effect is moderate and inconsistent, it is preferable to use Fraxel ablative lasers for this type of treatment.

The broad spectrum of intense pulsed light makes it possible to combine treatments in a single session: the same treatment can be effective for both age spots and rosacea, for example….

In contrast, laser treatments often require two separate sessions. This can help limit side effects and treatment costs.

  • Erythema on the treated area lasting from a few hours to a few days after the session,
  • Scabs usually appear after the treatment of spot,
  • Facial edema is not uncommon for 3 days after treatment,
  • Burns are exceptional. They are prevented by not treating dark or tanned skin. The expertise of the dermatologist, in this case Dr. Molinari, helps to minimize this risk.
