Technology

The technology of pulsed light is based on the selective photothermolysis principle (photo: light, thermo: heat, lysis: destruction, selective: targeted). It transforms electrical energy into intense bursts of radiant energy through a lamp containing a noble gas, xenon. The resulting radiation is a bright flash of high intensity, which covers a spectrum of wavelengths ranging from visible light to close infrareds (spectrum band from 420 nm to 1200 nm). The polychromatic light is absorbed by chromophores (melanin, oxyhemoglobin, porphyrin, water), which are pigments absorbing light and reacting to the photothermal effect. This is the phenomenon that leads to the cell’s destruction or modification. With the cooling water running through the lamp, the infrared light is absorbed, the heat is dissipated and therefore is not transmitted to the skin. It is only the chromophore that is targeted by the light, so there is no risk of burns.

Various filtrations are available depending on the targeted chromophore (porphyrin, oxyhemoglobin, melanin, water) and the desired application.
