. BTL EXILITE is the latest IPL technology allows one to accurately adjust the procedure for an individual skin type and indications, thus ensuring the maximum efficiency of the procedure. It has a unique sapphire cooling spot.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)  

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is produced when electric current is passed through xenon gas. Thus the electric energy is converted to optical energy. This light is polychromatic, unlike laser is monochromatic.

IPL a non-invasive treatment. It uses high-intensity visible light to treat various skin conditions. It has broad-spectrum pulse of light, range of 400 to 1200 nm. It uses more than one wavelength of light to remove unwanted cells.

 

We at Clear Skin Centre treat multiple skin conditions like: 

  • Active acne lesions
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Acne rosacea, redness, telangiectasias 
  • Laser hair removal
  •  

 

 How does it work?

It works on the principle of selective photothermolysis. This machine comes with different cutoff filters of different wavelength ranging from 400 to 1200nm.This helps to target specific chromophore.  As there are Cut off filters such as : 515, 550, 560, 570, 590, 615, 645, 690, and 755nm

  • In Acne:-

IPL acts by photo-dynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of acne vulgaris. Propionibacterium acne (P. acnes)  a causative bacteria for acne produces the porphyrins during their growth and proliferation in the follicular units. These porphyrins absorb the red [415nm ] & blue light [ 630nm ] of the IPL & helps to destroy P Acne bacteria. 

 

  • In Vascular lesions:

Light pulses targeted at the red-pigment (hemoglobin) in the blood which heats and destroys the vascular pigment without affecting the skin or other tissues. In Rosacea, it helps to target oxyhemoglobin of blood vessels, capillaries in the skin, which helps to reduce redness, vascularity of skin. Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve best possible results.

 

  • For pigmented lesions:

Light pulses targeted at the melanin in the skin’s surface which heats and destroys melanin to remove the discoloration.

  • Hair removal:

The Light pulses targeted at the hair follicle causing the hair to fall out and prevent further growth.

 

  • Skin rejuvenation:-IPL works very good in skin rejuvenation, also called as photo-facial in which 530 nm wavelength is used. It helps to stimulate collagen fibers beneath the skin, helps to build elastin fibers in the skin, which helps to give a more youthful and flawless appearance to the skin.

 

Advantage of IPL therapy: Minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done on their lunch break and return to work immediately afterward..

 

Before the procedure:-  As a preliminary to avoid sun exposure few days  before and after treatment.

 

During the procedure:-

  • The smooth glass surface of the treatment probe is applied to the skin, delivering precise pulses of light to the area being treated.
  • Treatment sessions usually last about 15-20 minutes. A course of 4-6 sessions every 3-6 weeks may be needed to achieve desired results.
  • Can return to work immediately after treatment..

 

Post-treatment care:-

Need to use broad-spectrum sunscreen to avoid PIH.
