I live in Canada so I am wondering is Fraxel Lazer the same as IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatments? (Photo)

IPL versus Fraxel Laser for age spots and pores
Fraxel laser is a far superior laser for treating age spots, uneven skin tone and pores. The IPL is actually not a laser but rather intensed pulsed light. Fraxel can accomplish in one treatment what would take 6 or more treatments of the IPL. In addition, Fraxel can help with enlarged pores and fine lines which the IPL cannot address. The best laser for dilated blood vessels is the V-Bream laser. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is familiar with these lasers for the best cosmetic results.
