The Science and History
What is it?
Optimal Pulse Technology The wide wavelength IPL (650–950 nm), all in one platform, in terms of efficacy and side effects. A super hair removal (SHR) mode for IPL system exhibits the total energy applied per session, counted in kilojoules, to a precise area with the advantage of fewer side effects than the usual IPL. A 650–950 nm Advanced
Fluorescence Technology (AFT) light based system with a rectangular spot size of 3 versus 1cm, fluence of 1–7 J/cm2, pulse frequency of 1.3 and 30 seconds and a contact cooling
mechanism was attached.; the in-motion technique is used, which requires continuous motion giving adjusted total energy for a particular area.
AFT Pulse Shape
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal, photo-rejuvenation (e.g. the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins) as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases such as acne. The technology uses a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm. Various cut-off filters are commonly used to selectively filter out lower wavelengths, especially potentially damaging ultra violet light. The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body. IPL shares some similarities with laser treatments, in that they both use light to heat and destroy their targets. But unlike lasers that use a single wavelength (color) of light
which typically matches only one chromophore, and hence only one condition, IPL uses a broad spectrum that when used with filters, allows it to be used against several conditions. This can be achieved when the IPL technician selects the appropriate filter that matches a specific chromophore. Intense pulsed light is the use of intense pulses of non-coherent light over a range of wavelengths from 500 nm to 1200 nm. Flashlamps produce high output bursts of broad spectrum. Photo Biotech Radiant built in Cooling Technology is used to protect the skin in contact with the device.
How it works for Hair Removal
Broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin, targeting melanin. These lights travel through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the bulb (root). The bulb is usually where the highest concentration of melanin is located. As the light is absorbed, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are heated, destroying the hair-producing papilla. It is also claimed that heat conversion occurs directly in the darker capillaries that bring blood to the follicle. At any one time, not all hair follicles are ‘active’, and only active hair follicles can be affected by the treatment. ‘Inactive’ hair follicles can be treated as they become ‘active’ over time.
How it works for Dermatological Conditions
IPL was first developed for vascular conditions. IPL can treat pigmented lesions with rapid recovery. Dyschromia can be cleared after repeated sessions. Photoaging treatment has been explored. A series of IPL can be used for facial rejuvenation, improving skin laxity and collagen production and now fibroblast production.
IPL is employed in the treatment of a range of dermatological conditions including photodamage induced dyspigmentation and vascular changes, poikiloderma of Civatte, rosacea, acne vulgaris, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, broken capillaries/telangiectases, vascular lesions (small blood vessels), pigmented lesions (freckles, liver spots, birth marks ), melasma, actinic keratosis, photo-rejuvenation, basal cell carcinoma, and Bowen’s disease (squamous cell carcinoma).
By using appropriate wavelength, pulse duration and fluence, thermal injury can be limited to the absorbing chromophore, melanin, which is rich in the hair bulb and shaft. The interrogation points of progenitor stem cell destruction, which is hypothesized to be amelanotic, should be the major destination to achieve permanent hair removal. To overcome this situation, the modified theory of selective photo-thermolysis allows heat propagation to the surrounding tissue including the amelanotic stem cells by using longer pulse durations. As melanin has the highest density at the anagen phase and the hair growth center is more superficial at this phase, anagen hairs are more readily affected, so
that multiple sessions with variable intervals are needed
