I have chosen to write about this topic after the amount of calls we receive at Skin Perfection; London’s award winning skin and laser hair removal clinic, about ipl laser hair removal. Which ipl laser hair removal is best? Neither of them. Ipl is not a laser and the awareness of this is still very little.
Which IPL laser hair removal is best?
The answer is neither. Only because IPL is not for laser hair removal. IPL stands for intense pulsed light which is great to treat wrinkles, spots, sun damage, broken veins and other skin conditions. It uses flash lamps that emit light making it less specific for hair removal. This general light may target various components of the skin such as, water, lymph and melanin in the hair, which means the hair is not its main target.If you want permanent hair removal you should only ever choose medical grade lasers over ipl.
Laser technology is simply much more effective, and achieves substantially better results than IPL. Not to mention because of the wavelength IPL is not suitable for patients with olive or darker skin tones.
The laser should be specific to your skin type
A Medical grade laser is designed with direct wavelengths that specifically target the melanin in the hair, making the treatments more specific and effective. At Skin Perfection we are using one of the most popular lasers from the Medical Aesthetic Industry which is the Cynosure Elite. This specific laser combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755nm –Alexandrite laser and the 1064nm –Nd Yag laser, allowing our highly experienced practitioners to adjust the laser specifically to your skin type.
Cynosure’s laser hair removal targets and destroys the hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is a smooth, hair-free skin that lasts.
