Laser Intense Pulsed Light
Why Choose Intense Pulsed Light Therapy?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) utilizes optical filters to generate certain wavelengths of light for treatments of specific targets such as hair, veins, pigmented lesions, and collagen. The main difference between a laser and an IPL is that the laser uses one wavelength of light only, whereas IPL uses a broad spectrum range. This means that IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter time than laser therapy.
