How does the laser work?

The laser will beam highly concentrated light into the hair follicle where it is absorbed by pigment in the hair root. This process heats and damages the follicle, destroying its ability to grow new hair. The light has no effect on your surrounding skin, leaving you with skin that is silky smooth and hair free.

IPL or laser?

In this case, the laser is definitely the best treatment method.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an inferior tool for hair removal because it lacks the single concentrated wavelength precision that a true laser has. IPLs, unlike lasers, produce beams of light that are made of many different wavelengths. Only a fraction of these wavelengths have any effect on hair growth, which means that treatment with IPL is only partially effective. Lasers on the other hand, will emit the light of just one wavelength that is 100% active in the hair follicle. A less effective treatment means that many more sessions will be needed using IPL, resulting in more unnecessary cost for you.

Since IPLs produce a broad spectrum of light, they expose the skin to random and unnecessary wavelengths which can increase the risk of damaging side effects.

It is important to be aware that the term “Laser Hair Removal” is commonly applied both to IPL and to laser hair removal. Be sure that you check carefully before committing to a less effective treatment.
