How it works
IPL Intense Pulsed Light penetrates the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and help with skin rejuvenation. The Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse™ technology delivers precise light through several layers of skin, which generates heat when it’s absorbed by the targeted tissue. This corrects imperfections in the skin without damaging tissue. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected from the heat so you’re comfortable throughout the treatment.
