Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light
You may be wondering what the difference is between a laser skin treatment and the intense pulsed light treatment, otherwise known as the photofacial.

The intense pulsed light is a scattered beam of light that can treat multiple skin conditions, and the wavelengths can be controlled to precise depths where needed. These dual sources of light energy have an incredible ability to transform our skin to a more youthful appearance.
