  Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
IPL therapy, also called photorejuvenation, uses intense pulses of broadband light to smooth and tighten the facial skin and remove age spots, freckles, and visible blood vessels.
Unlike the narrow band light of lasers, the light used in IPL is delivered to the deeper parts of the skin (the dermis) and does not damage the surface (the epidermis) of the skin.
Because the intense light is delivered to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis) and leaves the superficial layer of the skin (epidermis) untouched, IPL therapy does not damage the surface of the skin.

A Cosmetic Laser is actually a pulsed light - all of the wavelengths of light except one are filtered away.
Pulsed Light delivers thousands of colors of light each application, but can be 'Filtered' to selectively deliver only the most appropriate wavelength - that would depend, for instance, upon whether you were targeting a hair follicle for removal, or if you were targeting Melanin to rid the skin of freckles.
More pulses, at higher power and longer wavelengths, with longer delays between the pulses, means you penetrate more heat, deeper, while 'skipping over' and protecting the skins surface.

When the laser or IPL light is directed at skin tissue, its light energy is absorbed by water or pigments found in the skin.
Presently, no single laser or IPL is capable of treating all skin conditions, but certain lasers can be tuned to a variety of colors of light or coupled to a robotized scanning device to expand their clinical effectiveness.
The green light, in contrast, is used for the treatment of benign brown pigmented lesions, such as café-au-lait spots, the "old age" spots commonly found on the backs of the hands and lentigines or freckles.
