IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light and is similar to a laser treatment but better. A laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelength and is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) where this treatment can do the most good without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin. The pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. For laser hair removal it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL AND PIXEL?
IPL and Pixel Laser are both non-invasive light-based procedures that promote a healing process in the skin. Each is designed differently to address different aesthetics goals. IPL exposes light uniformly and is mostly recommended as a treatment for pigmentation issues of the skin such as sun spots, age spots, and rosacea . Pixel Laser, on the other hand, is an ablative fractionated light, meaning only a fraction of the skin is exposed to the light. It creates many tiny punctures or dots in the skin. It is primarily aimed at resurfacing the skin to remove anomalies on the
skin surface and smooth out acne
scars and minor wrinkles.
