Calibrated pulsed light with square pulse technology and dual mode filtering
CPL technology provides a wide range of wavelengths for the treatment of a number of skin conditions, including the removal of unwanted hair, vascular lesions, epidermal pigmented lesions, photo-damage andacne vulgaris.
CPL's dual mode filtering and square pulse technology are the key innovations enabling practically painfree hair removal - which differentiate CPL technology from many ordinary IPL systems.
CPL applicator, with a selection of cut off filters, offers a broad and effective spectrum for the treatment of unwanted hair and skin imperfections, with minimal patient downtime and risk of side effects.
Clinically proven to effectively treat unwanted hair, acne, rosacea, thread veins, fine lines/wrinkles, and the visible signs of sun damage, CPL treatments are gentle, offering gradual results, leaving your skin looking smooth, silky and radiant.
Q: What is CPL photorejuvenation?
A: CPL is the gold standard for photorejuvenation. This technology provides dramatic results for a variety of conditions, including age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of couperose and rosacea, birthmarks, wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores, skin laxity and other blemishes. CPL Skin Treatments help restore a more youthful appearance without recovery downtime.
Q: Are patients satisfied with the results of this gentler, more delicate approach?
A: Several appealing qualities of CPL Photorejuvenation treatments result in very high levels of patient satisfaction. CPL treatments are quick, gentle and non-invasive. There is no interruption of routine activities; by helping to remove the age spots (sun-induced freckles) and broken capillaries, the result is overall more even, luminous, younger looking skin. Patients can see dramatic results within a very short time.
Q: Is CPL effective on acne?
A: CPL Acne therapy is now revolutionizing the treatment of acne. The CPL Acne Therapy destroys the most common bacteria that cause acne — without drugs, without pain and without downtime. CPL, “Calibrated Pulsed Light” is one of the safest acne treatments available, proven to be extremely effective on moderate inflammatory acne with no known side effects.
Q: Can the Xlase CPL effectively treat Rosacea?
A: The high power and optimal pulsing technology only available with the Xlase result in superior treatment for the vascular symptoms associated with rosacea.
Solar lentigo, or as more commonly known, age spots, sun spots or liver spots are blemishes on the skin associated with age and exposure to UV radiation from the sun. They range in color from light brown to black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, forehead, and the head if bald. Light-based technology helps in safe and quick removal of those spots.
How Do Pigmented Lesions Form?
Pigmented lesions, or age spots are caused by an increased number of pigment-producing cells (Melanocyte) in the skin. They occur in response to long-term sun (UV radiation) exposure and associated with aging of the skin. The skin tends to get thinner with age. This causes older people to have pale, translucent skin. Melanocytes activity tends to increase and more melanin is produced. Chronic sun damage speeds up the development of these spots.
How Does The Treatment Work?
The melanocytes absorb the energy of the light pulse. This light energy turns into heat energy that coagulates the melanocytes selectively. New cells are later formed without this high concentration of melanin and the skin is renewed.
Telangiectasia is a benign skin condition that can occur in otherwise healthy people. The causes of telangiectasia are unknown, but researchers think they may be genetic, environmental, or a combination of both. It’s believed the most common causes of telangiectasia are chronic exposure to the sun and extreme heat or cold.
How Does The Treatment Work?
Two treatments are administered in order to treat the capillaries:
Breaking the layer of clotted blood and re-opening the capillary, resulting in free blood flow through the capillary and the disappearance of the purple or red colour.
Stimulating the collagen layer to produce more collagen, resulting in thicker skin which conceals the capillaries.
Acne is a cause of suffer and discomfort to many people around the world who have to deal with it daily.
The introduction of light-based technology solutions created a revolution in Acne treatment. The treatments are much shorter, easier and more effective.
How Does Acne Form?
Increased activity of the sebaceous glands which secrete more sebum.
The opening of the hair follicle gets blocked.
Lack of oxygen causes the rapid multiplication of the P. Acne bacteria that lives inside the hair follicle.
The immune system reacts by fighting the bacteria, leading to an inflammation.
This inflammation results in the appearance of pimples and lesions that might develop into scars.
As long as the bacterial activity continues, the inflammation continues and the acne flourishes.
How Does The Treatment Work?
As part of a routinely metabolism process, the P. Acne bacteria generates an organic compound called porphyrin. High intensity broad spectrum light (Especially blue light) triggers the porphyrin to release single oxygen atoms (Free radicals). These free radicals are seeking other atoms to attach themselves to. They make connections to molecules they are not supposed to connect to, and by doing so they ruin the functionality of these molecules. The activity of many single oxygen atoms destroys the P. Acne bacteria.
