In this class, professionals will learn to understand the basic differences between laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments and their particular benefits to treat various skin conditions. Different lasers can target pigment of different colors (like brown discoloration, bruises, port wine stains or tattoo ink) or the pigment found in the hair follicles. Certain laser wavelengths can also be used to resurface the skin either superficially or deeply. Lasers are extremely effective for a variety of skin concerns, but they aren’t the only option. Intense Pulsed Light (or IPL), is another light based treatment similar to lasers, but rather than delivering a single wavelength of light, IPL is capable of emitting pulses (as opposed to a steady beam) of a variety of wavelengths. This is why IPL is often used for reducing redness, brown spots and other aesthetic concerns, with just one device. IPL can also be customized for individual patients to address their specific needs.
