IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a form of bright energy that delivers a diffuse bundle of controlled light with the ability to penetrate the skin and heal from the deepest layers of the dermis all the way to the surface without creating skin damage.
Fractional laser is a technology that delivers microscopic beams of laser light into the skin in a controlled tiny-dot pattern leaving some skin intact. In doing so it allows the physician to achieve superb results without injuring the whole surface of the skin. The tiny columns of laser energy can penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen production in a very predictable way.
