Company - FAQ's
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal?
Intense pulsed light hair removal is a new and advanced long-term method of skin treatment. A client sits or lies in a comfortable position, and then a technician glides a wand-like tool, or hand piece, over his or her skin. The hand piece emits a beam of specially filtered light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. This heat is what treats hair removal or skin conditions.

What is the difference between Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
Laser is a single color of light: Red light for Diode Lasers, which means all the rays are the same wavelength. There are a number of different lasers used for hair removal. Their effectiveness varies with what the wavelength is. Some lasers are very effective, others are not so good, which is why one hears a lot of variation in results.

Intense Pulsed Light is broad spectrum light, made up of a range of wavelengths and colors. This range means one can treat more hair types effectively, with more consistent results. Besides removing hair from face and all body areas, Intense Pulsed Light has other uses. It can treat sun damage, pigmentation on face, hands and chests, small blood vessels and diffuse redness found on the face and chest.

Medicam Research Center and Medicam incorporated pride themselves on having the latest technology with proven success. Our MD-Pulsed Light systems are the best in the world. North American design backed by medical research and clinically proven results give us the edge.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Using state-of-the-art laser technology, It gently removes sun-damaged, scarred, aging skin or performs light laser rejuvenating peels. The laser uses a beam of light to vaporize scarred, lined, wrinkled, or otherwise imperfect skin. Laser light penetrates to a very precise controlled depth, making the procedure safe and predictable, while minimizing the risk of scarring or pigmentation problems.

"Experience & Expertise in Laser Skin Resurfacing"
Laser skin resurfacing is bloodless, and is saving patients of the costs and risks of hospitalization or general anesthesia.

What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Both the pleasure and stresses of life, along with the simple passage of time, tend to cause our skin to appear older. IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin's surface, hence, no "downtime".

Using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL),
It can simultaneously treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation and the symptoms of Rosacea. "I no longer need to worry about my blemishes. I can't believe my eyes!" Photorejuvenation provides long-term improvement of complexion and skin texture, with only the slightest interruption in your busy lifestyle.

Are the Treatments Safe?
Yes, it is very safe. Some people may experience mild reddening of the treatment area for a day or so after treatment, but other complications are rare. The Intense Pulsed Light system delivers energy to the skin very gently. Plus, the hand piece extracts heat from the skin during each pulse of light for maximum protection.

Does it hurt?
No. The light is selectively absorbed by the skin and hair follicles. The skin itself is exposed to little heat. Plus, no irritating chemicals are used.

What body areas can be treated?
Almost any area of the body can be treated: the legs, back, upper lip, chin, underarms, back of the neck, bikini line, etc, depending on what treatment you want done.
