The difference between a real laser or an IPL method of removal?

Do you know the difference between a real laser or an IPL method of removal? Not many people know the difference, but plenty of clinics advertise laser, but are they offering a real ‘laser’?


What is IPL?


IPL (intense pulsed light) technology is technically not a laser treatment. It uses a broad spectrum of light (an expensive lightbulb) with many wavelengths which leads to unfocused energy around the skin area. As a result, there can be wastage of energy and less selective absorption in the follicle resulting in less effective destruction of the hair. IPL is technically only safe for lighter skin types.


Why use a Diode laser?


Diode lasers use a single wavelength of light that has a high absorption rate in melanin. At the same time, it incorporates skin cooling to protect the surface of the skin. As the melanin heats up it destroys the root and blood flow to the follicle and disables the hair permanently. Diode lasers have an ability to deliver high frequency pulses which generally can be safely used on all skin types. Lasers are much more concentrated in killing the hair follicle.
