Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a light-emitting system that is capable of emitting filtered polychromatic broad bandwidth wavelengths between 515 and 1,200 nm. The emission of wavelengths is controlled by both an internal filter that blocks undesired wavelengths from being emitted and a heat-sink effect that allows the controlled transfer of thermal energy from an object at high temperature to an object at lower temperature.
