Receiving intense pulsed light (IPL) laser training is a must for anyone entering the field of clinical aesthetics. IPL is considered a newer innovation in the field, but it is quickly becoming the method of skin rejuvenation and hair removal that is preferred by most clients.
It is non-invasive and almost entirely pain free. As it offers results that can last up to a year or more, thousands of people looking for younger, smoother skin are requesting IPL treatments.
When IPL laser treatments are used on the face for rejuvenation purposes, they are commonly referred to as photofacials. They can reduce the appearance of fine lines and eliminate spots from sun damage.
In a typical treatment, the skin is covered with a cooling gel that allows the hand-held laser instrument to flow smoothly around the area that’s being treated. Anesthetic is not usually necessary, as the most sensation that’s typically felt is similar to a gentle pinch. The IPL beams break up the pigments underneath the skin. After four to six treatments of 20 minutes each, the treated pigments start to actually flake off the skin, leaving clear, smooth skin behind.
IPL Training for Photofacials and Hair Removal
IPL laser training is also essential in performing permanent hair removal. This procedure involves several steps:
• The IPL beams are focused on the area to be treated
• The beams target hair follicles in the area and destroy their ability to grow more hair
• Hair becomes sparser with each treatment until no more new hair appears
