APL is a well-established form of non-ablative intense light therapy used for a wide variety of skin conditions and complaints. Unlike lasers, APL consists of a broad spectrum of light wavelengths. Depending on its wavelength, the light energy targets different structures in the skin and different skin depth.
Green and yellow light in the APL treatments specifically targets the hyperpigmented lesions, while sparing the surrounding skin from damage. Then the longer wavelengths in the APL light penetrate more deeply into the skin to stimulate fibroblasts to generate extra collagen. As a result, the skin tightens, pores become more refined, and wrinkles and scars are visibly improved. Other wavelengths of the APL can also be used to destroy hair follicles (for hair removal), as well as to eliminate the bacteria associated with acne problems.
