IPL Hair Removal vs. Laser Hair Removal

Difference Between IPL Hair Removal and Laser Hair Removal

For people seeking to have excess hair removed, they have two existing and effective options, IPL (Intensive Pulse Light) hair removal and laser hair removal. These are the two most patronized method of removing unwanted body hair by most ladies as well as men. These tow methods make use of the same concept and theory, but have subtle differences which are as follows:

IPL Hair Removal

IPL or Intensive Pulse Light is a light technique and is also known as “Flashlamp” It employs the use of a full spectrum, non-coherent and broadband light and it not only utilized in Hair reduction and removal, but may also be used for the treatment of other skin conditions. It is newer compared to laser light technology and thus has more features, one of its features is that one can select a multitude of light at a certain period and can also change the wavelength of the light to match the area of treatment.

The wavelengths used in this procedure is broader and wider than laser hair removal, it can produce up to 8 times the size of a laser treatment’s wavelength and gives off the light in a divergent direction. Also, because of its broader area of treatment, it is done faster than Laser Hair Removal. It also boasts of more features like its ability to produce its own wavelengths.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal involves the use of light energy from laser to permanently decrease the presence of unwanted hair. It makes use of pulsated beams of highly concentrated light which damage the hair follicles together with those that are surrounding the affected area, thus resulting to a more permanent hair removal. Laser Hair Removal may be uncomfortable for some but it has never come to a point of becoming painful. How long the procedure has to be done will depend largely on the area being treated.
