Özet

Intense pulsed light (IPL) devices use incoherent high-intensity pulsed light of 400-1200 nm wavelength spectrum. Indication and adverse reactions of IPL systems are similar to lasers. IPL systems can be used for epilation, telengiectasia, pigmentation and photoaging therapy. The most side effects due to IPLs are burning and pain on the skin, bulla formation, hipo and hyper pigmentation. IPL devices have advantages for wide lesions with large spot size, and they can be used for darker color skin with less side effect. Comparison of IPL devices is very difficult, since a large number of different IPL devices are available. (Turkderm 2012; 46 Suppl 1: 45-7)
