Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

At The Skin Lab we use the Palomar StarLux® 500 Laser and Pulsed Light Platform, which is the most powerful aesthetic system in the world. It enables the best possible results for:

Palomar System use specialised handpieces which filter light to target blood vessels and pigmented lesions. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sunspot removal and vessel clearance.

The Palomar photorejuvenation handpiece emits pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels, which typically fade from view within two weeks.

Pulsed light systems and lasers are very similar, but Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use a much larger treatment window than most lasers. This spreads light over a wider area of skin and allows a faster coverage of the skin and quicker treatments as a result.

Most areas, except directly around the eyes, can be treated. The face, neck, chest, arms, back and legs can all be treated.
