Tired of shaving and waxing but want to get rid of all those pesky hairs? You’ve come to the right place!
Hair removal treatments are the best option for permanently getting rid of the unwanted hair lining your body. But, choosing the best treatment can be a little tricky sometimes, since there are so many options.
The two most popular treatment options for hair removal are laser hair removal and IPL hair removal.
What’s the difference, you ask? Let me explain.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. For this treatment, a broadband pulsed light source is used. This light is then applied to the surface of the skin, targeting melanin. The light travels through the skin until it reaches the hair follicle. As the skin absorbs the light, the hair bulb and shaft are heated and destroyed.
Laser hair removal has a similar process. For this treatment, a more concentrated, monochromatic beam of light is used. This light penetrates the skin and enters the hair follicle directly, targeting the melanin in the hair.
So, which one is right for me?
Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. IPL has been proven to be mostly effective and less expensive than laser hair removal. However, laser hair removal is more effective and achieves results a lot faster than IPL hair removal does. So, even though IPL usually works after a while, laser hair removal definitely still remains the #1 treatment option.
