An IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial is a versatile skin rejuvenation treatment.
An IPL device works by delivering an arc of light energy that penetrates all levels of the skin, without harming the surface (the epidermis), so there’s little to no downtime afterward.

This light treatment can be performed on the face, hands, neck, chest, and legs. The size of the head of the IPL device is usually larger than most laser spot sizes, which allows for rapid treatment of large body areas.
Most people need a series of IPL photofacial treatments to see optimal results. They’re typically performed three to four weeks apart.
The Nordlys system utilizes advanced technology to improve the appearance of your skin. Everyone’s skin is unique and not all skin conditions can be treated the same way.
Ellipse SWT® (short for Selective Waveband Technology) uses exclusive technology to target problem areas with narrow wavelengths of light. Result: less heat in your skin. And fewer treatments compared to other IPLs.1,2
The Nordlys system gently treats acne by delivering narrow light wavelengths with the SWT. No topical anesthetics are required and many patients describe the treatment as practically pain-free, like a flick from a rubber band, followed by a sensation similar to the feeling of gentle warmth after a day on the beach.
The SWT treatment makes your skin look clear and bright by delivering short bursts of light that directly target the blood vessels or melanin within your skin.2,16 It delivers clinically proven results in the treatment of skin rejuvenation.* In fact, in one study, 83% of patients had a greater than 50% improvement in cleared vessels.5
Clinically proven results
Acne occurs when your sebaceous glands overproduce an oily substance called sebum. When extra sebum gets trapped in your hair follicles, your skin can become irritated — leading to the appearance of pimples on your face. Left untreated, some types of acne can cause permanent scarring.
The Nordlys system treats acne by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland to slow down the production of sebum. The system delivers short, bursts of Ellipse IPL directed at the skin. Using patented Dual Mode Filtering technology, the system filters the light to ensure that only the wavelengths necessary for the treatment are used. Because of this, only the blood vessels that supply the sebaceous gland are impacted, while the surrounding vessels are not affected.11
In cosmetic dermatology, there are three areas that we are typically targeting – blood, melanin, and water. IPL devices focus primarily on the blood and melanin. With the Ellipse SWT, the handpieces that operate at the lowest wavelengths – most notably the PL400 – are generally most effective when targeting these two chromophores and addressing pigment-related issues such as red and brown spots in patients with lighter skin. Those handpieces that operate at higher wavelengths are most effective for issues such as skin rejuvenation and hair removal. With the Nordlys, there are handpieces geared specifically for light skin and others for darker skin.
