In non-ablative resurfacing, fractional lasers deliver heat into the skin through thousands of tiny, deep columns known as microthermal treatment zones. This serves to trigger the skin’s healing response while leaving surrounding skin cells intact, allowing these surrounding cells to aid in healing.
The treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells and deposits heat deep into the dermis to tighten skin and stimulate collagen remodeling.
This non-invasive procedure is a good choice for the treatment of facial wrinkles. It can be performed in a doctor’s office in less than an hour. Because much more of the skin is left intact than with ablative non-fractional skin resurfacing, recovery time is minimal.
Intense Pulsed Light is a light therapy as opposed to a laser resurfacing tool. It is a mild, gentle treatment that produces scattered pulses of light to remove unwanted blotches and hair without harming the skin’s surface. It addresses unwanted body hair, wrinkles, vascular and pigmented lesions, and more.
Nordlys’ Intense pulsed light or IPL uses a narrowband technology to improve the efficiency and precision of treatments. Because it uses a narrower wavelength, less fluence is required to treat photodamaged skin. IPL targets a specific area of skin to treat pigmented and vascular lesions and provide permanent hair removal.
Some main benefits include :
Acne: Ellipse IPL treatments can help improve the appearance of red blemishes, irregular pigmentation, and skin tone11
Aging skin: Ellipse IPL treatments can help address dark spots, freckles, age spots, uneven pigmentation, and diffuse redness
Unwanted hair: Ellipse IPL treatments can remove excess hair on the upper lip, chin, legs, bikini area, underarms, back, shoulders
Skin Rejuvenation With Candela® Nordlys FRAX
The Frax Pro laser rejuvenates* skin by delivering very small, controlled bursts of energy to the skin. The technology in the Frax Pro system controls the appropriate width and depth of the laser light energy delivered to meet individual treatment needs. The delivered energy stimulates the production of collagen, resurfacing the skin over time. The laser is gently rolled across the skin over brief treatment sessions. The surface of the skin is left intact and there is low downtime associated with healing and recovery.
Nordlys' Frax 1550 handpiece is used for non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing. It works for fixing skin texture irregularities like wrinkles and fine lines.

Smooth, Hair-Free Skin
For permanent hair removal, Nordlys’ IPL handpiece provides an effective solution. It uses narrowband technology, which increases the efficiency and precision of the treatment. The Treatment permanently prevents the regrowth of hair strands for smoother, softer skin. Treatment is more comfortable with Nordlys because it has a cooling technology.
The SoftCool™ skin cooler helps reduce treatment discomfort and use of an anesthetic/numbing cream may be recommended. After this wears off, for a few hours you will feel as if you have a light sunburn.
Areas you can treat :
Treatments with Nordlys are more comfortable with SoftCool™ technology, which ensures that the treated area does not reach high levels of temperature. It can also help speed up treatments, eliminating the need to pause during each procedure to help patients stay comfortable.
The advanced Nordlys™ laser system from Candela® utilizes the latest technology to treat some of the world's most common skin concerns. Nordlys™ treatments are gentler and more effective for treating a wide range of skin problems.

Reduced Skin Redness
Rosacea is a skin condition that affects up to 20% of the population. This skin condition is characterized by red skin that looks inflamed. Nordlys provides an effective solution for rosacea, which reduces redness and improves overall skin tone. After treatment, skin gets a lighter, more radiant, and even tone. It can also be used on sensitive areas of the face such as the mouth and nose area.
Dark Spots Clearance
Dark spots can be caused by pimples, acne, and sun damage. Nordlys targets pigmented cells on the skin, which shatters them, leaving the treated area with a lighter and more even tone. The treatment does not cause any peeling or redness after the procedure. Nordlys is the ideal treatment for pigmented lesions because it does not cause any downtime or side effect.
Leg And Face Veins Treatment
Nordlys is also equipped with Nd:YAG 1064nm handpiece, which can address facial and leg veins. It targets blood vessels without causing damage to surrounding tissue. This helps reduce the appearance of facial and leg veins for a clear and blemish-free appearance.

How can I be sure Candela Nordlys IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting E Candela Nordlys IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals.
Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
It is important to avoid tanning (sun, sunbed, fake tan) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise, your skin will absorb more light, which makes the treatment less effective. Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary, but patients with sensitive skin may benefit from applying soothing aloe vera gel. Furthermore, it is recommended to use an SPF 30+ daily.
How many treatments are needed for the best results?
On average, 3 to 6 treatments at 4 week intervals are needed for the best results. Top up treatments may be needed in the future to maintain these results. For the optimum collagen stimulation effect with Skin Rejuvenation, 6 treatments at 4 week intervals would be recommended.
Is this treatment comfortable?
From patient to patient, the sensation will vary. The sensation that is felt depends upon the amount of melanin found in the skin. The sensation is described as a heat sensation and a few patients compare it to mild sunburn after the treatment.
Who is suitable for this treatment?
The best results are seen with patients of skin types 1-3, while skin type 4 can be treated with care. It is important that the patient avoids sun exposure 30-60 days prior to treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pains or burns from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. If the patient has a sun tan it may be better to wait until the colour reduces to achieve the best results.
