How IPL Skin Rejuvenation Works
The Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology delivers precise light through several layers of skin, which generates heat when its absorbed by the targeted tissue. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected.
The Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology penetrates through the skin’s deeper layers to repair and rejuvenate from the inside out.
The real-time cooling system ensures your skin is continuously protected from the heat for unparalleled safety and comfort.

Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your session, and stop using any products that might irritate your skin 2-3 days before.

It feels like a really light snap with an elastic band against your skin, or like if someone lightly flicked you, as the applicator moves around the treatment area.
The applicator has a cooling feature built into it to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like the upper lip. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.
