IPL or Laser Hair Removal?
Considering laser or IPL for facial or body hair removal? There are significant differences between IPL and laser hair removal. When it comes down to IPL versus laser hair removal, the differences are in long-term costs and results.
The difference between IPL and laser hair removal
These are the key differences between IPL and laser hair removal:
- Technology. IPL is a laser ‘equivalent’ that emits a variety of light wavelengths, some of which are not the correct wavelength to target the melanin in a hair follicle. Laser, on the other hand, emits a single, precise wavelength that is specifically targeted to attack the melanin in a hair follicle.
- In the battle of IPL versus laser hair removal, cost is often the deciding factor. While IPL facial and other hair removal is promoted as being cheaper per session, because of the inexact wavelengths IPL use, you will need more sessions to get the results you want and to maintain those results than you would with laser.
Those are the key differences between IPL and laser hair removal and in both cost and effectiveness, laser comes out on top.
Laser By Sia was recently the first clinic in Australia to import the very latest in laser hair removal technology from the US. Our Alexandrite laser is faster and even more targeted for the best hair removal available worldwide today.
