GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Laser IPL iPulse of CYDEN British company

 

Laser IPL iPulse of CYDEN British company is the latest device for removing unwanted hair. It has a safety and quality certificate as well as ISO 9001. The length of a wave emitted by the laser equals 530-1200 nm, depth of skin penetration is 2-5 mm. So it works only on the surface and does not affect functions of the organism. IPL (intense pulsed light) is a kind of a colour light with a large energy, wide spectrum, different wavelength which can effectively run through the epidermis to the dermis. This light can reach different skin layers and can be absorbed by selected tissues. ILP effectively destroys hair bulbs which causes removal of unwanted hair, ILP can also close damaged blood vessels. It can also dispose cells of abnormal pigmentation and then remove any discolorations. What is more, it can stimulate renewed growth of collagen and change the system of elastic fibres – photorejuvenation. Thanks to this you will see healthier and younger skin. The fact of laser effect on hair follicle is a phenomenon of selective phototermolysis. The laser light is absorbed by structures of a hair follicle which includes melanin, changed into heat which destroys hair elements responsible for its growth, causing hair loss and follicle destruction. As studies have proved this phenomenon is the most effective for hair which is in the phase of active growth (anagen). Other growth periods of hair : cessation (catagen) and rest (telogen) are not sensitive to the laser work. This conditions the need of minimum 3-5 treatments, repeated every 3-4 weeks. Hair weakened by multiple waxing, removed by tweezers or mechanical epilators may require additional IPL treatments for better results.
