Both laser and IPL use light to heat the hair follicle and prevent regrowth. However, the technology used to deliver the light is different, the key difference being the kind of light itself.
Lasers produce a specific type of light consisting of one wavelength or colour of light all going in one direction, which creates a single beam like a pen torch. IPL devices produce a wide range of wavelengths of light to produce a single white flash like a full torch.
For the purposes of hair removal, both laser light and IPL light work by the same mechanism:
One of the primary objectives for light-based hair removal using either laser or IPL is to achieve this critical temperature in the hair follicle whilst at the same time not heating up the surrounding skin to a temperature that could cause damage such as a blister. This is achieved by careful control of the amount of light output. As the IPL is still classed as a laser the word laser is often used when discussing IPL
At The Holderness Laser Clinic we use the world renowned Ellipse Flex medical system. A wide beam of light that can treat many hairs at once.
It is a lot quicker and less painful than other hair removal treatments such as electrolysis. Because of this, large areas such as your back, legs, or arms can be treated in a much shorter period of time. In clinical studies the Ellipse Flex medical produced the same results as Laser treatment.
We always recommend a full course of 6 IPL hair removal treatments.
It has been our experience over our fifteen years of using IPL that some clients may need more than 6 treatments. An occasional laser hair removal top up to keep any new growth at bay will also be required over the years.
Our laser hair removal system is clinically proven to permanently reduce your unwanted hair.
But each individual’s treatment response may be different because of your hair and skin type. Other factors such as stress levels, some medications and different hormone levels can result in some hair re-growth. We therefore recommend one or two top up treatments per year just to keep any new hair growth under control.
After your first laser hair removal treatment, you should enjoy a significant reduction of hair.
However, it can take 10 to 14 days for all of the treated hairs to reach the surface and fall out. Follow up treatments are every 4-6 weeks and with each treatment, the hair in the active growing phase will be targeted.
The laser energy attacks the pigment in the hair, and these colours either have little or no pigment.
We would recommend that if you have these hair colours Electrolysis is the best alternative solution.
The hair root has to be present for laser hair removal to work, so if it has removed by waxing, tweezing, or hair removal creams, there will be nothing for the laser to interact with.
Shaving is okay and can be done a few hours before your treatment.
Your skin produces melanin as a response to being in the sun.
The light in the machine works by targeting the melanin in the hair it will also target any melanin in the skin and burn your skin. Sunbathing afterwards will increase the risk that you will experience hyperpigmentation.
This risk can be managed by the use of a high factor sun block before and after your treatments.
The light will target the melanin in the hair.
Surface hair increases the risk of a burning and discomfort from the treatment.
The treatments are tolerated by most and can be described as being like the snapping of an elastic band.
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the treatment could last anywhere from five minutes, or up to an hour.
The skin of the treated area can have some redness, and the hair follicles will may look like goose bumps up to an hour or two after treatment.
