Dr Godfrey Town gave a talk on ‘A New Generation of Vascular and Pigmentary IPLs’ as an Invited Speaker at the ACAM annual cosmetic medicine conference held on 25 – 27 October 2019 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
This talk considered a new generation of intense pulsed light (IPL) devices and evaluated how and why they rival traditional pulsed dye laser (PDL) treatment of vascular and pigmentary abnormalities. Several companies have released new devices with recent and innovative claims for their intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. Selected company slides were presented to investigate novel technology advances and to explore the clinical and scientific evidence for these innovations.
Dr Town concluded that evidence-based clinical and scientific results confirm that modified IPL technology can match PDL clinical outcomes and deliver better side-effect profiles than traditional PDL.
