Laser Versus IPL
IPL Systems create a wide spectrum of pulsed light wav lengths like a light bulb. This wider range means that only some of the wavelengths will target the hair. While Lasers send out a single beam of light, IPL systems send out a whole spectrum of light. IPL is not as strong as laser which can mean less efﬁcacy in treatments and results as well as IPL Is unable to treat all skin types.
Laser Hair Removal systems generate a single wavelength of light. This means it’s a concentrated beam that will target the pigment in the hair follicle. Lasers can be adjusted to different settings to work with particular hair and skin types. Lasers can be safely used on dark and tanned skin because the heat is absorbed by the hair follicle, not the skin.
