Aura Laser Facial Resurfacing vs. IPL: Fresh Spring Skin

It’s finally spring and everything is bright, fresh and lovely. So doesn’t your skin deserve to feel bright, fresh and lovely as well? We want to help you achieve the spring skin you desire, and, in the world of anti-aging light treatments, two of the most loved procedures are the Aura Laser Facial Resurfacing Treatment and Intense Pulsed Light. Although both treatments are highly rejuvenating, there are many differences between the two.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAura Laser Facial Resurfacing

Our Aura Laser Facial Resurfacing Treatment uses laser light, which is absorbed by pigmented areas and then converted to heat, causing the pigment to break up. This selective targeting of hemoglobin in the blood vessels makes Aura lasers spectacular at treating both vascular and pigmented lesions. If you struggle with broken capillaries, rosacea , seborrheic keratosis and/or brown spots, this treatment will work wonders for your skin.

The Procedure:

Our Aura Laser Facial Resurfacing Treatment is done on an outpatient basis and usually takes 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. More than one session may be needed.


After getting treated by the Aura laser, you may experience some redness, swelling or scabbing in the treated areas. These side effects will usually dissipate within one to three days, while the scabs may last as long as two weeks. Makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately, and a moisturizer with SPF 30 should be used daily. It’s also important to avoid the sun as much as possible for the first week or two.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL is a breakthrough treatment that delivers powerful pulses of light (not lasers) that pass through the layers of skin while targeting skin tissue that is brown or red, leaving the normal skin tissue unharmed. These light waves vary in intensity and are emitted by a hand piece through a series of brief, even passes. IPL addresses numerous unpleasant skin conditions, such as visible signs of sun damage, acne and acne scarring.

The Procedure:

IPL is done on an outpatient basis, and usually only takes 10-20 minutes to complete with no anesthetic needed.


IPL is non-invasive and the client may not even experience discomfort. There may be slight redness or swelling, and the skin should be protected with sunscreen for a few days post treatment.
