Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

What is 
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a light-based treatment that rejuvenates the skin to improve your skin tone and texture without surgery.

The benefits of IPL treatment in Singapore are:

Lighten skin pigments

Reduce fine lines

Even out skin tone

Reduce pore size

Reduce skin redness on the face due to issues like rosacea (adult acne) and dilated blood vessels

Hair removal

Treat acne and acne scars

How does
IPL work?

IPL emits high-intensity pulses of light to penetrate the skin. These light pulses are selectively absorbed by pigmentation, hair, and other structures to produce its beneficial effects. Over time it also stimulates collagen formation, reducing fine lines.

IPL produces a broad wavelength output of non-coherent light in different wavelengths (e.g. 420nm, 530nm, 560nm, 590nm, 640nm, 700nm) to achieve the desired result. 

Who is 
IPL suitable for ?

It is a therapist treatment for patients who want regular photorejuvenation treatments for maintenance of their skin health or as a post-doctor treatment to maintain the result.

It can be used as a standalone maintenance treatment or paired with other complementary therapies for enhanced anti-ageing results such as Halley’s Signature Rejuvenation Facial, which features IPL together with liquid diamond dermabrasion.

What else
can IPL treat?

IPL treatment in Singapore is also often used to calm acne and lighten acne scars as this photorejuvenation therapy is able to target pigment cells to even out skin discolouration, lighten acne scars, and improve skin tone.

It is popularly used for facial and body hair removal as well.

What can I expect
during IPL treatment?

After cleansing your face, the therapist will cover your eyes with cotton pads for protection. She will then apply a layer of gel over the treatment area. 

During treatment, you will see flashes of light and the treatment feels similar to the gentle snapping of a rubber band on your skin. 

Finally, our therapist will cleanse your face, and apply skincare and sunscreen for you.


There is little to no post-treatment care required. However, you should maintain skin health by applying good skincare products and sunblock daily.  Do stay out of the sun as much as possible so as to minimise photo ageing.
