Intense Pulse Light
Intense Pulsed Light or IPL therapy is one technique that is now widely used in the field of dermatology. It involves the use of a broad but controlled spectrum of light to remove stretch marks and acne scars, as well as prevent hair regrowth.
IPL is a non-invasive and non-ablative procedure, which means it doesn't require anaesthesia or even sedation to be performed. It is non-ablative since the broad spectrum of light penetrates the deeper layer of the skin without harming or injuring the upper layer or the epidermis. Further, since the wavelengths can be filtered, IPL doesn't have any negative effect on the neighboring cells and tissues of the targeted area.
