What is ‘energy density’ or ‘fluence’?

We constantly find that laser/IPL users do not properly understand energy density (or fluence). Yet, this is a fundamentally important parameter when applying light energy to the skin. Without a good understanding, it is difficult to know how good results can be generated!

Hope this helps.
