Eyewear for Cosmetic Intense Pulsed Light SystemsEyewear for IPL hair removal and cosmetic applications

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.

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 for the clinician / operator, and Shade 5 eyewear for the patient. However, for treatments carried out on or near the face 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.
