The Medilight PRO 600 IPL System includes comprehensive training that will provide you with the fundamental and practical knowledge needed to perform safe and effective IPL permanent hair reduction and IPL skin rejuvenation treatments on your clients.
Take a look at a short excerpt from our “Fundamentals Of Laser And Intense Pulsed Light” training course:
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
IPL systems work by delivering energy from a power source into a flashlamp, which is filled with Xenon (Xe) gas. Xenon gas is colourless and odourless and is used in flashlamps, arc lamps and as a general anaesthetic.
Light is generated by powering the gas filled tube with electrical current. The Xenon gas emits a band of light that spans the visible spectrum and, when used in Intense Pulse Light systems, produces a broad spectrum flash of light. Filters are then used to determine the depth of the light penetration required.
Light is controlled in a glass or quartz block when leaving the hand piece. This releases a polychromatic, scattered source of light.
A chromophore is the part of a molecule which gives it its colour. In physics, the chromophore of a molecule is the space where the balance of energy between two molecular orbitals falls into the visible light spectrum. This balance of energy - in the space - is what absorbs certain wavelengths of light and reflects others, resulting in colour.
During Laser and IPL procedures, the targeted chromophore absorbs the complementary wavelength and converts the energy delivered into heat, while leaving surrounding tissue relatively unaffected. For example, delivering the appropriate energy to the chromophore found in hair will cause only the hair follicle to heat up, damaging the follicle and preventing its ability to produce new hair. Similarly, the process can be used to target pigmented or vascular lesions of the skin without damaging surrounding tissue.
These target Chromophores are:
Melanin - found in the epidermis, pigmentation and hair.
Oxyhaemoglobin - contained in blood
Water - inside the cells
Porphyrin - a natural chemical produced in human cells, but also produced by human commensal bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes)
When light is absorbed by these target chromophores and transformed into heat, it is called a ‘Tissue Interaction’.
