IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Therapy is now available at Heather Polak Esthetics Studio! IPL is a non-invasive treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of various skin conditions. The light emitted is attracted and absorbed by chromophores (specific cells). By triggering different chromophores, the IPL is able to treat many skin conditions such as wrinkles, rosacea, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
IPL hair removal is an effective, safe method of removing unwanted hair and can be used to treat most areas on the body or face. Compared with other methods such as electrolysis and waxing, IPL hair removal is less painful and less invasive. The number of sessions needed depends on density growth cycle of hair. IPL uses a broad spectrum visible light which can more effectively treat lighter (blonde/grey) hairs, as opposed to traditional laser hair removal targeting only dark, course hairs.
