The Chromolite Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) System is used to reduce unwanted brown age spots on the face or body. The Chromolite uses a Smart Lite Technology, which uses a combination of yellow and red light wavelengths in a unique flat beam profile to enhance treatment efficiency. The red wavelength absorbs into the pigment. The yellow wavelength targets the blood in the minute blood vessels feeding the brown spot, thus interrupting the blood supply and damaging the area. This combination of targets allows for enhanced effect. Best results are achieved when treating brown spots in light skinned patients. Treatment energy levels are set after a patch test procedure during the first treatment session where different power settings are tried out on the skin to discover the optimum energy level for the patients particular skin colour, hair colour and structure. Most patients need between one to three sessions, separated approximately one month apart to achieve good results. No IPL or Laser system will achieve 100% clearance of brown spots. However, selected clients who undergo a full course of treatment at the optimum energy levels should achieve 60% to 90% reduction in the brown pigmentation.
The Chromolite IPL System can also be used to treat red veins on the face, excessive hair growth and fine lines or wrinkles.
