Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology that combines a power source with a contact cooling system for comfort. The handpiece contains a xenon lamp and an optical guide with a filter which projects intense light. This technology is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis (selective = targeted, photo = light, thermal = heat, lysis = destruction). The radiating energy that results is a high intensity flash of light that covers a spectrum of wavelengths from visible lightto near infrared (spectral range 420nm to 1200nm). Polychro- matic light is absorbed by the chromophores (melanin, oxyhaemoglobin, porphyrin and water), resulting in a photothermal effect which causes either cell destruction or changes to the cell.Because of a water cooling system built into the lamp, heat is not transmitted to the skin and only the chromophore is targeted, minimizing the risk of burns.
