Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment has been proven an effective, safe, reliable and fast treatment for a range of superficial pigmented lesions such as dyschromia, solar lentigos, mottled pigmentation and melasma.
Nearly 100% of all people have one or more pigmented lesions. Some are caused by sun exposure, others by aging. Still others are congenital. Regardless of the cause, pigmented lesions are simply spots on the skin where there is a higher concentration of melanin. Some lesions are flat; others are raised. In most cases, pigmented lesions are merely a cosmetic concern, but in some cases, they can be an early sign of skin cancer.
For most benign pigmented lesions that are of a cosmetic concern, there is a non-surgical option. By exposing a pigmented lesion to short pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated melanin can be raised sharply, enough to shatter the cells containing the melanin. The body then replaces these cells with new cells generated by the surrounding untreated area. The treatment offers unique wavelength and pulse width capabilities, allowing it to treat pigmented lesions on any skin type.
