Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a cosmetic skin treatment. IPL delivers multiple wavelengths. This means that IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter time.
IPL works in a similar way to laser therapy, but it is less focused and effective than a laser.
IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin.
-Melasma, a condition causing brown or gray-brown skin patches

It needs more sessions rather than Laser therapy, it can take anything up to 6 to 12 sessions per month to notice the results of IPL treatment.
