IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
This type of device was first introduced into the aesthetic market in the mid-1990s. Though IPL may look, sound and feel like a laser, it is not classified as a true “laser” because it uses multiple wavelengths of light whereas lasers use only one wavelength of light. Just because it is not a true laser does not mean that it is any less effective or less complicated a treatment. Multiple wavelengths of light can actually be an advantage when used by an experienced operator.
