Which Is Better Laser or IPL?

Trying to work out the differences between laser and IPL hair removal technologies and deciding which method is the right one for you can be very confusing. There is a lack of advice and information on the competing systems.

Both laser and IPL Liverpool hair removal systems work on removing your unwanted hair in a very similar way. Both systems require that the region that is treated has been shaved before the procedure, both technologies convert light into heat to increase the temperature of hair follicles, which prompts the bulb of the hair to fall out, reducing hair growth. However the similarity ends here.

What is the main difference?

The biggest difference between Laser and IPL hair removal Liverpool is the way the light is produced, the type of light (its wavelength) and how well it can be absorbed by different skin and hair types.

IPL produces wavelengths of light in the visible spectrum. Laser produces a single, precise wavelength in an intensely concentrated beam, so there is less ‘hit and miss’.

The advantage of IPL is that different skin types can be treated with the same machine. But it can’t be used on darker skin, and it is not as effective on different skin types, making it less versatile than laser hair removal Liverpool. IPL can even cause damage to the pigment cells, resulting in patches of lighter or darker skin.

The advantage of Laser is that the light can be targeted. There are different Lasers with different wavelengths but each is chosen to maximise its effectiveness and safety for a particular type of hair and skin.
