SOJO Medical was founded in 2011 with a mission to provide new and innovative IPL system protection for medical professionals in dermatology and aesthetics. The Pulse auto-darkening eyewear was born of this mission. When Laservision USA acquired SOJO Medical in 2021, it did so with the goal of improving the Pulse product and better supporting SOJO customers with their extensive laser safety knowledge. As part of uvex safety group, LASERVISION is a trusted worldwide supplier of high quality laser safety products, technology and training to industries ranging from medicine to the military.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is an effective method of permanent hair removal and photo rejuvenation of the skin and has grown in popularity as a treatment modality. IPL handpieces deliver high intensity pulses of non-coherent light, which typically range between 500 and 1,200 nanometers. This differs from a traditional laser, and requires specified protection.
The energy from an IPL flash presents a safety risk to the eyes of both the user and patient. It can cause acute and long term permanent eye damage. Long term users are at risk for cataracts and can develop severe eye strain and chronic headaches.
To combat these conditions, SOJO Medical developed advanced technology eyewear for IPL users. Unlike heavily tinted, passive IPL eye protection, the Pulse uses auto-darkening technology. This means it only darkens when the IPL flash is present, leaving users with a clear view of the treatment area. Laservision offers both the standard Pulse eye protection and the Pulse HVT (High Visible Transmission), which offers 20% higher overall visible transmission than the standard Pulse.
