Laser Hair Removal Tips

Achieving Smooth Hair Free Skin with Laser Hair Removal
An important question to to ask before your treatment is “Which machine are you using for Laser hair removal?Is it a laser or IPL device?”

Laser depilation requires a Laser not an IPL device to achieve the best results.

When you decide to have laser hair removal, make sure that the laser devices used are of single wavelength light and not intense pulsed light machines (IPL’s). Laser devices remain the gold standard in the removal of unwanted hair.

Laser devices do not require a gel or cream whereas IPL devices produce incoherent light used with a gel to burn the hair. IPL devices use a broad band of light which is not as reliable in terms of treatment effects. Laser devices use a single rather than broad band of light which is better at targeting hair specifically.

IPL devices tend to be cheaper equipment and are used for various skin treatments and are often better suited to laser vein treatments and photo rejuvenation.

Real lasers generally achieve faster and more reliable and long-lasting results.

In summary: Beware! often clinics offer laser hair removal, when in fact they are using IPL devices. If a gel is placed on your skin prior to your treatment, then you are having a treatment with an IPL machine rather than a laser device.
