What is Candela IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Candela IPL is special light therapy for treating skin issues. Normally, people use laser beams for common light therapy treatments. Laser beams use only a particular light wavelength for treatment. This makes it ineffective against a variety of skin issues.
The Candela IPL treatment makes use of different wavelengths. This creates a scattered light pattern capable of penetrating the skin layers. The skin cells absorb this light and the heat generated by the light energy. Clusters of pigmentation in the skin are broken apart and by the light energy and the skin becomes tighter and smoother. It is a very effective treatment for wrinkles, dark spots, red spots, and age-related skin problems.
