Exclamation IPL Quantam Laser????

Hello Fellow Hopers,

I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about the IPL Quantam laser made by Lumenis(?). I was just surfing the internet about birthmarks, specifically Port Wine Stains and I came upon a page about this laser, of course it shows really awesome before and after picutres of the treatment with that laser but I was intrigued. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and apparently it combines pulsed laser light and a broad band of Intense Pulsed Light to offer the most effective and long-lasting treatment for port wine stains and hemangiomas.

I am going to bring this up with Jude's doctor to see if she has heard anything but I was hoping someone out there has heard or researched the quality of this treatment. I am always looking for the new or best thing for my Jude's PWS. We are currently on his 5th Candela Pulse Dye Laser treatment and it looks better than it did when we started but like the rest of you I want the best!

Thanks,

Kennan
