IPL Laser Treatment

How does

IPL Laser

differ from Electrolysis and Diode Laser Hair Removal?

The main difference between IPL and Laser is that Intense Pulsed Light utilizes a range of wavelengths. This means that the light that causes the hair to be eliminated is not adjustable. Unfortunately, hair texture, colour and size vary from person to person as well as on one’s own body. If you use the same beam of light forIPL Laser Hair Removal different hairs, how can you expect them to be removed with the same efficiency? This is why we sometimes hear alot of variation in results when it comes to Laser. With IPL, the energy delivered to the area is adjustable. In other words, we have the ability to customize the settings (the wavelength, number of pulses, duration of pulses, delay between pulses, and power delivered) to match each client’s specific hair color thickness and depth; as well as the color of their skin. We can therefore treat more hair types effectively (almost any area of the body can be treated), with more consistent results. This ability allows minimizing side effects and maximizing the effectiveness of the treatments. Since IPL utilizes a range of wavelengths, it has other uses. Besides removing hair from the face and all body areas, it can also treat other skin disorders, and firming and tightening of the skin.
