Lasers are commonly used to treat a variety of cosmetic and dermatological skin conditions such as unwanted hair growth, tattoo removal, and even the reduction of wrinkles.  More recently Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) sources have been developed as an alternative modality in such applications with great success.  However, in all application of Lasers and IPL in aesthetic dermatology it is critical to understand the nature of the skin condition and then choose the appropriate wavelength, pulse duration and energy density to achieve a safe and effective treatment.  This presentation will consider a variety of conditions and the appropriate light characteristics to achieve a successful treatment including the most advanced techniques using fractional technology.
