Discover the Benefits of Pulsed Light & Ultimate Light™

What is Ultimate Light™?

Ultimate Light™ is my trademarked method of using light (whether pulsed, laser, or other forms of light) to treat patients' cosmetic needs. I currently use Pulsed Light as my Ultimate Light™ method. As better technology emerges, I will incorporate it into my Ultimate Light™ method. I have trained physicians and treated patients from around the world using my Ultimate Light™ or Pulsed Light (IPL) method of hair removal.


Pulsed Light or Ultimate Light™ is increasingly recognized as a major advance in hair removal since it enables the knowledgeable physician to vary the light in many more ways than the relatively limited options available with lasers. This flexibility enables more customizable treatment and can produce better and safer results.

Ultimate Light™ or Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments

I have used both lasers and pulsed light but have so far only purchased Ultimate Light™ pulsed light systems.

Ultimate Light™ or Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment (using EpiLight, PhotoDerm, Quantum, Vasculight, or Aculight machines) is a more advanced form of hair removal. You can assume that each method and machine in this review is trademarked. The term "laser" is used by many to include the use of various forms of light to treat hair or skin problems. Technically speaking, a laser delivers one color or wavelength of light, while Ultimate Light™ pulsed light delivers hundreds of colors of light with each flash of light.

How Will You Benefit?

Practically speaking, the end result of either laser or non-laser light treatment is the same: the absorption of the light by the target (whether it be the hair follicle, blood vessel, tattoo particle, pigment of melanin, or scar tissue) and thereby produces a cosmetic change.

Ultimate Light™ or Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are used to solve the following:

  • Hair Removal
  • Scars
  • Tattoos
