IPL vs. Laser Hair Removal

IPL vs. Laser Hair Removal

Before deciding which method is best, it’s important to know that not all IPL’s and laser hair removal treatments are the same. This is especially the case when dealing with “Beauty Grade” IPL lasers which have various wavelengths and more often than not do not emit the adequate energy levels to be able to successfully destroy hair follicles.

Not only are Beauty Grade IPL laser treatment less effective, but in the hands of an untrained operator you are at risk of sustaining negative reactions, such as burning and scarring.

Over the past 10 years, laser hair removal technology has advanced quite significantly, however many beauty therapists and hair removal clinics are still using out of date technology, such as Beauty Grade IPL hair reduction. This is largely because it is a cheaper alternative than investing in the latest and most advanced technology for laser hair removal, such as the Medical Grade 4 Candela Gentlelase Laser, which is an Alexandrite Laser and the most effective machinery in laser hair removal today.

What is the best method to use?

The Medical Grade 4 Gentlelase Laser by Candela is the fastest, most effective and advanced laser treatment on the market. It features a DCD which is a safe, built-in cooling device that ensures a comfortable and relatively pain free treatment, eliminating the need for conductive gels or creams which chemically numb the skin.

The wavelength that is most absorbed by the dark pigment in the hair is 755 nanometres. The Medical Grade 4 Candela Gentlelase Laser is fine tuned to emit this exact wavelength of light,
causing the most damage to the hair follicle, thus resulting in the hair follicle “shutting down” and leaving you with permanent removal of the successfully treated hair.

This is the real difference between Beauty Grade IPL hair reduction and Laser Hair Removal.
Laser hair removal means less treatments required, less overall treatment costs and permanent hair removal, instead of just hair reduction.
