The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology utilizes a large spectrum of light wavelengths to treat the skin.
The Cynosure MaxG handpiece emits pulses of light simultaneously at the upper and lower ends of the spectrum in order to maintain efficacy while limiting side effects. The pulses are absorbed by the pigment in brown spots and the blood in visible blood vessels. This light energy is then converted to heat. The heat shrinks the blood vessels and works to break down cells that create the pigment.
Portions of the light spectrum have wavelengths that are ideal for treatments of:
