What is Light & Bright™ treatment?

Rejuvenate* and refresh your skin with new Light & Bright treatment!

The Light & BrightTM treatment is an exciting new aesthetic treatment that can remove dark spots, reduce redness, and improve textural irregularities via skin resurfacing. The treatment combines two advanced technologies found on the Nordlys system. Light & Bright treatment uses both a patented intense pulsed light (IPL) technology called Ellipse IPLTM and a Frax 1550TM laser on the face and chest areas to rejuvenate* your skin. The treatment does not break the skin, so the downtime is minimal.

*Skin rejuvenation is defined as the treatment of benign pigmented lesions (pigmentation/dark spots) and vascular lesions (vascularity). 

 

How does Light & Bright™ treatment work? 


The Ellipse IPLTM technology used in Light & Bright treatment uses small controlled bursts of light, which directly target unsightly blood vessels or excess melanin within your skin, reducing age spots, freckles, redness and sun damage.* Ellipse IPL technology is unique, as it filters out harmful light wavelengths and fewer treatments are needed compared to older technology, standard IPL's.1

The Frax 1550TM technology rejuvenates** the skin by delivering very small, controlled bursts of energy to reduce textural irregularities. The Frax 1550 handpiece is FDA indicated for use in dermatological procedures requiring the coagulation of soft tissue, as well as for skin resurfacing procedures. 

*Via treatment of benign pigmented lesions (pigmentation/dark spots) and vascular lesions (vascularity).

**Improvement of textural irregularities via skin resurfacing.

A younger, fresher look

Looking for a successful treatment to help reclaim your skin’s youthful look, texture, tone? Well, you are not alone. Youthful and glowing looking skin are the most requested asks from patients around the world.

As we age, our skin changes. It loses its smoothness and unwanted pigmentation and small vessels can appear. Over time, sun exposure can accelerate signs of aging.

Now, with the new Light & Bright treatment, you can improve your skin by:

  • Rejuvenating* sun-damaged skin
  • Improving textural irregularities via skin resurfacing
  • Reducing redness
  • Lightening age spots, freckles, and dark spots

*Rejuvenation is defined as the treatment of benign pigmented lesions (pigmentation/dark spots) and vascular lesions (vascularity).

What is Light & Bright?

The Light & Bright™ treatment is an aesthetic treatment that can remove dark spots, reduce redness, and address textural irregularities via skin resurfacing. The treatment uses two complementary advanced technologies found on the Nordlys™ system. The Light & Bright treatment uses both a patented intense pulsed light (IPL) technology called Ellipse IPL™ and a Frax 1550™ laser on the face and chest areas to rejuvenate* your skin.

*Skin rejuvenation is defined as the treatment of benign pigmented lesions (pigmentation/dark spots) and vascular lesions (vascularity).

Is the Light & Bright treatment right for me?

If you have unsightly blood vessels or redness, excess melanin in your skin sometimes due to sun damage, or your skin has textural irregularities that bother you, then Light & BrightTM treatment may be right for you. A Light & Bright treatment provider can assess your skin and condition and determine whether the treatment will meet your needs.

How is the IPL in the Light & Bright treatment different from other IPL’s?

The IPL used in the Light & BrightTM treatment is called Ellipse IPL. It is a narrowband wavelength IPL, meaning it cuts off broader light bands that are not always necessary to treat a given condition. Some other IPL’s use broadband IPL light. The Ellipse IPL technology filters out some higher harmful wavelengths of the broader bands of light and fewer treatments may be needed compared to older IPL technologies.1

How much does the Light & Bright treatment cost?

The cost of Light & Bright treatment will be determined by your treatment provider. It may vary depending on the condition and size of area treated. Typically, insurance will not cover Light & Bright treatment. This is common for most aesthetic treatments.
