Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Systems commonly used for cosmetic applications such as hair removal and skin resurfacing present a hazard to the eyes of both operators and patients alike. We offer a range of options offering protection with the minimum obstruction to the procedures.
Buy OnlineIPL Lightspeed – Detects IPL Operation
This eyewear detects the IPL flash and automatically darkens within 1 millisecond thus protecting the eyesight of the operator.When the IPL is not operating the eyewear provides excellent visibility for the operator. Battery operated.
Buy OnlineIPL Shade
Dark green eyewear for protection against the bright light from IPL systems. The higher the Shade number the greater the protection and the lower the visibility. We recommend Shade 3 or Shade 4 eyewear for the clinician / operator, and Shade 5 eyewear for the patient. However, for treatments carried out on or near the face the IPL-AID or other patient eyewear should be used.Pictures of the frame styles are shown above. Please note that these indicate the style of frame only and not the darkness of the eyewear which is determined by the Shade number.
These eyecaps fit underneath the eyelid thus allowing full access to the face. They are available in a variety of sizes as shown below.Since they are not tested to EN 207 there are suited to IPL applications rather than laser.
