Intense pulsed light


Schoenewolf, N L; Barysch, M J; Dummer, R (2011). Intense pulsed light. In: Allemann, B; Goldberg, D J. Basics in Dermatological Laser Applications. Basel, CH: Karger, 166-172.

Abstract

In addition to lasers, intense pulsed light (IPL) sources are widely used in medicine to treat various indications, such as vascular lesions, irregular pigmentation and hypertrichosis. In contrast to laser, IPL systems are broadband flash lamps that emit polychromatic incoherent light ranging from visible to infrared (500-1'300nm). Optical filters are used to tailor the polychromatic light to specific needs. As a broad range of wavelenghts are delivered, treatment of multiple chromophores - including melanin, hemoglobin, water and collagen - within the same exposure is possible.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
