The Sheerwave® IPL 360 is a device using a light-based technology that converts to heat to perform various skin treatments such as: wrinkles, pigmentation spots and redness. It also removes unwanted hair, visible symptoms of acne or even tattoos.
The broad spectrum pulsed light emitted by the Sheerwave® IPL 360 is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the hand piece change the range of wavelengths, optimizing it for different applications and skin types. The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body. The body’s natural processes then clear the lesion debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance. Light energy can also target specific proteins present at the level of acne lesions.
