IPL Vs Laser? What is the difference?

 

IPL uses an intense pulsed wavelength (colour) of light to target the base of the hair follicle in the case of hair reduction treatments; This 'pulsing' cools the surrounding skin while effectively destroying the hair.

 

Laser uses a single beam of light (the same wavelength or colour) to target the treatment area. The treatment is exactly the same and each one is as effective as the other, depending on the individual, the settings used and the operator experience.

Don't be misled in to thinking Laser is better, they are one and the same, it is the colour of the light used and the machine and operator quality and experience that can make all the difference!
