The 5 things you must check out before purchasing an IPL machine


IPL is a key technology at the moment in the esthetical treatment industry for its low cost, cheap and easy maintenance , great treatment results, safe and painless treatments and quick investment returns which help generate a steady flow of satisfied customers with a very small starting capital… but do you know what to look for when choosing the machine that will make your business thrive?

Just as an F1 pilot depends on a good car to win a race, an esthetical business depends on good tools and machines to make a profit and keep customers happy through good prices, fast results and painless procedures and here we’re going to give you the 5 pivotal tech specs you must be on the lookout when selecting on which machine to invest:


The energy level (measured in Jules by square centimeters or J/ cm2) it’s what is known as “fluency”, the “juice” your machine can deliver on the treated area… if you don’t have enough fluency, you will not cause any effects, the best top fluency to look on a machine is 60J this will give you enough power to treat effectively any condition within the IPL’s applications. It might seem as a risk to mix high energy output levels and medical treatments but using the right parameters an IPL would make this a very safe procedure and with great outcomes.

Pulse length

It’s the duration of the energy delivered to the treated area. Short pulses are better used in some skin types and long pulses in others, always look for a machine that allows you to set this parameter for precise and more effective treatments, or machines which settings are automatic but allow you to see the differences in the pulse length and width as you change patients features.


The space between each pulse wave is measured in nanometers (nm) and it’s what the wavelength is all about. The higher the frequency, the shorter the wavelength.

IPL devices emit a broad spectrum of light, usually between 200nm and 1200nm filtering out those wavelengths that aren’t needed or could be harmful like the ultraviolet rays. But you can also filter more precisely to achieve best result in specific treatments, for example, if you do hair removal use a filter between 640nm and 690nm, there you will get the best of the melanin absorption and for that, best and faster results.  Always look for machines that allow you to filter in different wavelengths, usually they will come with extra filters to do so, or extra handles to do so, of course the extra handles are always more expensive.  We don’t recommend settling on Broad spectrum IPL machines with no filters.

Flash Rate

The time between flashes or “flash rate” is what makes the treatment take a longer or shorter. A higher flash rate means more pulses per second and therefore quicker coverage of large areas, this technology is so called SHR (Super hair removal), FDP (Fast Delivery pulse), or simply fast hair removal, not all of the machines come with this feature and its very important to have it because not only gives you faster treatments and more time to perform more sessions, but also treatments on this option are painless.

Light Output Uniformity

If the treatment is delivered unevenly, the results might not sit well with your patient, after all, the idea is that the treated area looks natural, so you want to be on the lookout for equipment’s with good output uniformity. This is mainly affected by the capacitors and filters materials, so make sure to get good quality parts.

So there you have it, with this short guide, you now know what to be on the lookout when researching your next purchase!

      As for advice on which platform to use, there’s a plethora of things to take into consideration but if your main concern is to reach as much people as posible, what really matters is the way you write your articles, a catchy title which uses words that are commonly looked for on search engines regarding the topic of the article is a “must do”, so you might as well start out with a free platform just like wordpress. Always research a lot… whenever you pick a topic, search for it and research a lot, and last, but not least, try to break down the info to it’s key components, the shorter and more concrete the article is, the better.
