What Is The Difference Between Ipl And Laser Hair Removal?
If people could choose, they will obviously take a chance to never ever have any hair on their bodies. Except for head, of course. And eyebrows. Yeah, they are in trend.
Modern cosmetology offers so many different types of epilation. You can try any of them. But what if you want a permanent result, is it possible? Let’s talk about that!
There two types of epilation, that we should consider about: IPL and Laser hair removal.
What is IPL treatment?
IPL - is an intense pulsed light. Its emission is based on a full spectrum of light (about 400-1200 nm). At the time when IPL creates the light energy, which is absorbed, it warms the hair, causing damage to the follicle.
After this treatment you are not permitted to have a sunbath, moreover, you should avoid sunlight at all. Or it can damage your skin.
By the way, IPL is not completely safe, it can burn some skin types during the procedure. Especially, much darker ones, but even a light skin tone is not completely protected from these burns.
As an after-effect, this treatment guaranties about 5-7 years of freedom from unwanted hair.
So what are the benefits of IPL?
- You will get the effect after the very first session of IPL.
- The procedure is quite fast in use so you don’t spend much time for it.
- IPL is better for people with dark hair and light skin tone.
- It is needed for you to take an 8-10 session of photoepilation.
IPL and Laser hair removal: is it permanent?
Well, yes, it is. If permanent means to forget about unwanted hair for years, and then repeat a session of procedures or repeat one session in some terms before remission - then, yes again! It’s really very permanent.
Yes, it’s expensive, yes, sometimes it hurts, sometimes not, for some kind of people that hurts really much. It’s needed to find a free time, to find a place in a schedule, but it’s possible, isn’t it?
But in the end, who cares, if after all these procedures you will live a fool life without annoying everyday shaving. Every morning you will get up in your dreams: soft and smooth skin, without irritation. And you will have a lot more time to sleep tight before getting up. Is it a dream, you’re going to ask? It is. But dreams are usually coming true.
Both of these methods of epilation are rather radical. And what is the same about them is the fact, that they both make a light.
Is ipl the same as laser?
No, they are not the same. Yes, they remove hair. But their impacts are different.
The light that is used by both these devices, has a different type of acting areas. Lasers act on a larger area, IPL, accordingly, on a shorter one.
The procedure and the results of the procedure - are different too. Laser is acting more gently. There is one type, diode laser, that almost doesn’t cause any harm to your skin, and totally painless.
