Is IPL the same as blue light treatment?

When our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) energy-based treatment is paired with the Blu-UĀ® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator and the LevulanĀ® Kerastick, this incredible procedure can even be used to treat actinic keratoses (rough, scaly patches) which can develop into precancerous lesions.

Can IPL damage eyes?
