They might be popular but there are some people out there who will still ask you about intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. What is IPL? What can it be used for and why is it so popular? There are a multitude of questions that you might face when introducing a new IPL device to your clinic but, thanks to Lynton, you’ll be able to answer all of them with ease! This is thanks to the training you’ll receive from our award-winning team of clinical trainers when you purchase your new Lynton IPL device.
Read on to learn more about this versatile treatment option that needs to feature in your clinic!
What Is IPL?
Firstly, although we feel it goes without saying, we wanted to say that professional IPL devices are not to be confused with the at-home alternatives that are readily available over the counter. When asking ‘What is IPL?’ it’s important to differentiate between the two. The devices that aesthetics practitioners have access to are much more effective and efficient at producing positive results than high street alternatives, which is why it’s important to highlight this to patients who are hesitant about receiving treatment.
If your patients want to know what IPL is, the answer is quite simple! It’s a light-based treatment that uses pulses of light at different wavelengths to treat various concerns including excess hair (it can be great for those with hirsutism), acne and ageing skin.
Some IPL treatments are similar in function to lasers. For example, in hair removal both IPL and laser direct light energy towards the pigmentation in hair that causes a burst of heat, which damages the cells that cause hair growth. This process is called selective photothermolysis. Whilst IPL and laser are alike in some ways, they are, in fact, quite different.

The professional vs at-home debate, however, is one you may continue to have with your patients. Although the reduced price point might be tempting at first, superior results are always worth visiting a professional for. Not only will said results be visible after fewer sessions (6 on average) but permanent hair reduction after 1 year is also more significant (up to 90% as opposed to 50%-80%). When choosing a device to meet your patients’ needs, you need to turn to Lynton, the UK’s leading IPL and laser manufacturer.
