“Intense pulsed light (IPL), is a technology aimed at producing light of high intensity during a very short period of time. It involves specific lamps together with capacitors whose rapid discharge provides the high energy required.”
Medical lights, lamps and lasers have been used for dermatology applications such as removal of port wine stains, dark spots, tattoos, acne scars and other blemishes for over a decade. This type of technology is being used in a number of cosmetic procedures including hair removal, skin treatments and even tooth whitening.
IPL is not the same as laser, although it is similar. The main difference is that laser (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a technique of producing light energy of only one wavelength. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses white light which contains all the wavelengths of visible light from red to blue.
IPL has been proven to reduce hair growth, and although laser solutions typically produces faster results.
Controlled flashes of intense pulsed light are absorbed by hair follicles. The absorbed light heats your hair, which damages or destroys the re-growth potential of the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue.
When used as directed VISS IPL offers proven safety and efficacy that until now could only be achieved by trained professionals. VISS IPL is scientifically-proven safe and effective, dermatologist recommended, compact, easy to use with minimal maintenance requirements – the answer to long-lasting hair removal.
VISS IPL uses the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to remove unwanted hair through a process called selective photothermolysis. When directed at the site of unwanted hair, the light is absorbed by dark pigment of the hair, disabling the follicle with minimal discomfort.
Despite the growing popularity and scientifically proven efficacy of light-based hair removal technology, there are still those reluctant to switch from the conventional methods of hair removal despite the inconveniences associated with those methods. Based on national averages, a woman can expect to spend approximately £7,000 for hair free under arms, bikini line, upper lip and chin over the next ten years. Aside from the cost of razors, shaving creams, wax, hair removal strips, depilatories and professional hair removal services, what is your time and effort worth?
Smooth skin starts beneath the surface, with VISS IPL, the confidence that comes with hair free skin is now in your hands. You now have the ability to free yourself from the daily chore of eliminating unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body. VISS IPL is the enlightened solution to unwanted hair.
