Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?

The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology delivers light particles that gently heat the upper layers of the skin without damaging it.

 

At Temasek Medical Aesthetics, we have the new Cellec IPL technology which uses pulse duration in microseconds to treat various skin problems. There are 8 different wavelengths to customize treatments according to specific lesion and skin type.

Production of Collagen
The mild heat produced by IPL stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen.

Lightening of Pigmentation & Vessels
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a dermatological breakthrough that effectively treats skin discolouration, blemishes, dull complexion, enlarged pores and fine facial lines.

Treatment of Acne & Acne Scars
This treatment is also able to lighten acne scars and treat certain kinds of acne.

Hair Removal

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments have gained a reputation for being an effective hair removal option. IPL removes the melanin that is found naturally in both the hair shaft and follicle; it is able to remove hairs currently on the skin as well as reduce future hair growth. Usually, around 6 to 8 treatment sessions are needed for permanent hair removal. This treatment can be used on almost every part of the body.

 

Pre-treatment Care Recommendations

- Use adequate UV protection and avoid harsh sunlight

- Remove all makeup before the treatment

Post-treatment Care Recommendations

- Slight redness is perfectly normal after the treatment. The redness will fade off within a few hours to a few days. If you'd like to, you may apply ice to the affected areas to ease the redness

- Avoid strenuous activities for the remainder of the day

Use adequate UV protection and avoid harsh sunlight

- Keep skin adequately moisturized
- Refrain from washing your face until the morning after your treatment. While the skin is still sensitive, wash with tepid water and a gentle cleanser. For 4 weeks following the treatment, avoid mechanical exfoliation

- Avoid picking at or scratching the skin as this may cause scarring. Allow the skin to gradually exfoliate on its own
