Thank you for your question.  This all depends on the spot size used and the pulse width.  Joules are like wattage statistics for Receivers marketed for home theatre.  People typically think more is better, and this is not always the case.  Joules, like wattage, are used for marketing purposes, and many times are not relative to the real issue of whether the machine is capable of treating the target desired.  An energy with a 595nm laser is different than energy by a 1064nm Yag.  Both are effective in treating many things, but they both use different energy scales, even though both use j/cm2 on the scale.

I hope this helps.
