A good reason to choose the IPL laser skin treatment is because it is a less invasive alternative to chemical peels. Chemical peels are a lot less targeted and focus on removing the uppermost layer of skin cells, regardless of whether that skin is healthy or not. Consequently, chemical peels may require several days of down time, for the skin to recover. Of course, in some cases (when a lot of skin damage must be repaired) a chemical peel may be a far better option. However, for patients who would like to address specific hyperpigmentation issues, the IPL laser treatment is likely a better solution.
