Photonic machines have undergone 5 generations of development, you might get confused about IPL, OPT, AOPT & DPL, etc.
IPL – Intense Pulsed Light.
IPL is a continuous multi-wavelength incoherent light, with a wavelength range between 500-1200 nm. As it emits light of various wavelengths simultaneously, it can whiten, fade, rejuvenate, treat photoaging, etc. It was first tested in a clinic in 1994. Dr. Patrick H. Bitter, an American dermatologist, later discovered that intense pulsed light can treat skin telangiectasia and have a beneficial impact on photoaging skin. At the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery’s annual meeting, he presented his treatment concept for improving the elasticity and fineness of the skin, which he called FotoFacialTM.
There are a lot of photo rejuvenation devices, but what we call OPT, BBL, APT, and DPL are actually IPL equipment in different names.
OPT/ AOPT – Optimal Pulse Technology. AOPT means Advanced OPT, which is upgraded from OPT. It is more effective in treating vascular lesions (removing redness) and acne.
DPL – Dye Pulsed Light. Through the specially designed dye crystal, the yellow-green spectrum is stimulated, and the narrow spectrum precision light with a spectral width range of 100 nm is accurately output. This treatment has more benefits related to redness, darkening, and skin rejuvenation. Yet, the improvement of skin texture such as fine lines and enlarged pores is limited.
However, IPL treatments are largely a matter of the doctor’s skill and experience.
Home LED Beauty Machine
In essence, LED therapy is an application of LED light projected onto our skin, which can cause a series of chemical reactions into our cells to generate the beauty effect by using different wavelengths. Low-energy LED light is absorbed by light receptor mitochondria in the skin to speed up metabolism & reduce inflammation. It’s a 100% pain-free, comfortable, non-invasive skincare treatment with multiple benefits like promoting the growth of collagen, killing pimples caused by bacteria, accelerating cell metabolism rate, lightening red bloodshot, and so on.
A home LED beauty instrument has a spectral range exceeding 500nm visible light and near-infrared light, it mainly includes green LED, blue LED, yellow LED, red LED.
