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 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.
What to Expect
Candela IPL is a minimally invasive technology that is completely safe. It is a proven technology that uses advanced equipment. However, it is always advisable to consult a skin specialist before undergoing the treatment. The procedure is carried out using specialized light therapy equipment with multiple handpieces. These are capable of emitting different light wavelengths based on the nature of the treatment. The treatment procedure involves:
- Cleaning of the treatment area
- Application of a topical numbing agent/cooling gel on the treatment area
- Application of varying light intensities on the skin
