IPL Safety Eyewear

We offer a range of options offering protection with the minimum obstruction to the procedures.

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.


IPL Operator Eyewear

IPL Lightspeed – Detects IPL Operation
ipl-lightspeed 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.

Style SKL
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.
