The main difference between laser and IPL for hair reduction purposes is in the technology that each uses to generate light. IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light technology uses a broad spectrum of light with multiple wavelengths (colours). Laser technology is monochromatic (one wavelength) and is focused into a concentrated beam.
Both laser and IPL provide the correct wavelength of light that targets the structure of melanin (pigment) in hair and disables hair from growing.
During your free consultation your Beauty Therapist will assess your Fitzpatrick Skin Type (hair colour, eye colour, skin colour and reaction to the sun) to determine whether you will achieve a better result from laser or IPL treatment.
