Do you know what is the difference between IPL and Laser hair removal? IPL stands for intensive pulse light and Laser stands for Light Amplification of Stimulated emission of Radiation. The IPL device has a superficial wavelength compared to laser and doesn’t penetrate skin enough to damage the hair follicles sufficiently for the purpose of hair removal. Therefore, it has a lower effectiveness compared to laser. Why IPL? Normally IPL devices are much cheaper than lasers. In addition, they are portable and can move easily. Therefore some beauty clinics perform IPL instead of laser. But, if you want more effectiveness as well as permanent hair reduction result it is better to perform laser therapy not IPL. We will be back with more information.
