IDE117: IPL and Light Therapies 2-Day Certification

Course Description

Hair removal is always in highest demand in both the spa and medical cosmetic industries. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is considered the best alternative to laser hair removal. This light therapy is quickly growing in popularity thanks to its proven fast results at affordable prices. In this treatment, a focused pulsing light is skillfully applied to the surface of the skin. The light travels down the hair shaft to the root. At this point, the IPL reacts with the hair and skin’s melanin, causing a scientific light to heat energy conversion that vaporizes the hair and its root, and often destroys the hair follicle. Pain is quick and targeted, and recovery is immediate. The heat generated from an IPL treatment does not damage the epidermis in any way. In fact, IPL is often used to clear up and heal a variety of skin conditions.

This extensive course provides estheticians, nurses, and electrologists with theoretical and practical methods of how to safely optimize treatment when using devices such as the IPL. Didactic and photo-light lectures combined with hands-on training ensure a thorough understanding of the use of aesthetic lasers. Attendees will provide and receive treatments during hands-on.
