Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is available at the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery to reduce or remove skin blemishes, including birth marks, spider veins, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, age spots, sunspots, and freckles, as well as unwanted hair.
IPL is a safe, effective, and virtually painless procedure performed by using an intense pulsed light device to reduce the melanin, or dark pigment, in your skin and even out the skin tone. When used to permanently reduce unwanted or excess hair, the light energy produced by the IPL device is absorbed into the hair follicles. As high levels of heat penetrate the follicles, it disables the hair structures and prevents the hair from growing back. However, since the hair grows in cycles, it may be necessary to undergo multiple treatments for the best possible results.
