The CPL applicator emits high intensity pulsed light, and consists of a Xenon lamp and a special optical guide capable of generating a very intense beam of light that selectively radiates the area to be treated.
In photo rejuvenation treatment, the light emitted by the applicator stimulates the production of new collagen and improves the tone, texture and brightness of the skin, acting in a non-invasive manner, with precision and speed of execution.
A specific optical filter, interchangeable, adapts the wavelength to the type of skin and imperfections to be treated:
- superficial vascular and pigmented lesions
- photo epilation
- photo rejuvenation
- acne treatment.
Clinically tested results
At BIOTEC ITALIA, protocols are tested by a team of leading physicians and specialists in over 60 countries around the world. The CPL applicator is part of a family of products tested and clinically proven to offer safe and effective treatments.
Compared to the other IPL systems available on the market, the CPL system has proven to be among the most powerful.
How does CPL for Acne work?
A powerful beam of ordinary light is released as a single or series of short pulses. The light destroys bacteria and shrinks grease glands within the skin. Both are necessary to form acne spots.
Treating Acne using Calibrated Pulsed Light (CPL)
The light emitted from pulse helps to destroy the bacteria which causes acne by exciting the existing oxygen molecules and increasing the molecules power. These super-powered molecules break down the bacteria that cause acne and create an atmosphere where it cannot breathe. By boosing the skin’s internal cleansing system in this way, pulse dramatically reduces acne and the occurrence and appearance of scarring, resulting in much clearer skin.
Sun tanning after CPL treatment will delay further treatment until it has settled and may cause temporary skin darkening.
How is the treatment carried out?
You will be asked to put on some goggles to protect your eyes. A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to cool the skin during treatment. A pulse of light is delivered into the skin which lasts for less than a second. A feeling of warmth or skin pricking is felt with each pulse of light. About 50 pulses may be required to treat the whole face.
