Things to Know: IPL Laser
What is an IPL laser and what does IPL stand for?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair.
What's the difference between an IPL laser and a standard laser?
IPL is similar to a laser treatment, except that instead of one wavelength of light, many different wavelengths are emitted and the focus is less resulting in less damage to your skin. The light energy is absorbed by pigment cells and converted into heat to destroy the unwanted pigment that is the source of spots and unwanted freckles.
