Abstract

Intense pulsed light technology has revolutionized the noninvasive treatment of a whole variety of cutaneous cosmetic problems. Today's machines are safer, more diverse, less painful, and readily available. Intense pulsed lights can be used to treat vascular and pigmented lesions and are used for facial rejuvenation and the removal of unwanted hair. Newer, less powerful home-device intense pulsed light sources will not replace those used in a physician's office but will augment the use of today's more powerful medical office systems.
