Although they are often referred to as lasers, IPL machines are not really lasers. laser machine Unlike lasers that emit a single beam of coherent light, (light of the same length and frequency), IPL machines emit different wavelengths of light that are not aligned with each other.
IPL Technology is very safe and effective, but there are many different types on the market and these vary in terms of quality and output. This is important to know, because not all varieties can treat the various skin types and conditions.
The technology on which the IPL laser machine is built has progressively improved to increase efficiency. In this regard, Alma Lasers developed the next generation IPL technology known as the advanced fluorescent technology or AFT. AFT is more productive, because it utilizes short-wavelength light that was once unused. AFT is available on Alma Lasers' Harmony platform.
Treatment with IPL machines
Photofacials improve the appearance of the skin, so that skin looks younger, and healthier. The IPL machine effectively rejuvenates the skin because it penetrates deep down, and treats the source of the skin problem.

IPL is a very effective way to remove unwanted hair. It is also safe and long lasting. IPL machines work by emitting a large spectrum of light. The light targets the melanin or dark pigment in the hair follicle. The heat penetrates the root of the follicle, and destroys it, thereby preventing hair from growing back. However, it usually takes about2-3 sessions with the IPL to permanently remove hair, as hair can only be treated when it is in the active growth phase.
Most patients that have used the IPL laser machine for hair removal are very happy with the results.However, it is important to ensure that the treatment is administered by trained professionals, with the requisite certification and expertise.
