Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

Yes, it is safe!: Intense pulsed light treatments are broadband (full spectrum), and do not use lasers (single wavelength) or ionizing (ultraviolet or x-ray) wavelengths. They are for pigmented and vascular lesions (superficial ones) and sometimes hair reduction. These energies do not penetrate beyond a mm or two, so your implants will not be affected in any way.
