Whats The Difference Between IPL & Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

Fractional Laser and IPL treatments go after many of the same hyperpigmentation and skin texture issues. IPL uses intense full-spectrum light to induce your skin’s healing process, hence the name IPL or Intense Pulsed Light. Fractional Laser treatments use an actual laser to renew your skin. IPL is very good at treating skin tone issues like skin redness associated with rosacea, broken vessels, acne, and pigmentation issues from sun damage. Fractional Laser Resurfacing works well on skin texture issues, especially uneven skin texture due to scarring. If that wasn’t enough, lasers also stimulate collagen production resulting in a younger overall appearance. IPL treatments are minimally invasive and patients can generally get back to their regular daily routine afterward. Fractional Laser Procedures are a bit more invasive, leaving you with somewhere between 7 and 10 days of recovery time. Talk with one of our skin specialists today to determine the right procedure for your skin profile.

Do you find yourself wishing you could give your skin a new start? If your regular skincare regimen isn’t winning the war on skin tone issues, it might be time to give IPL a try. IPL can reduce the signs of sun damage, fine lines, broken capillaries, uneven pigmentation, and more.
Fractional lasers can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, improve the evenness of skin texture, and significantly reduce the appearance of scarring. Shorter recovery times reduce the risk of side effects, adding to their already exceptional safety record.
If you’re looking to treat unwanted hair and enjoy life a little more, then it’s time to consider permanent laser hair removal. Leave messy shaving, harsh depilatory creams, and painful waxing behind, all while saving money in the long run.
