Which is better: laser or IPL for hair removal? from skeily's blog

Before finding the difference between the two hair removal procedures. Let us have an in-depth understanding of the underlying science behind the hair removal process.

There is a microsurgical procedure called photothermolysis in which light of a particular wavelength is targeted to a particular region of the body. The tissue in this particular area absorbs heat and is ultimately damaged without affecting the surrounding tissue.

How is photolysis used for the hair removal process?

There is a molecule called melanin that is responsible for the color of the hair. Melanin absorbs light from all colors and reflects any particular color that our eyes can recognize, so we naturally see black or red or white hair.

The role of the hair removal process now is to determine the area of ​​light emission at a particular wavelength. After that, the machine emits a strong beam of a specific wavelength. Light is absorbed by the melanin pigment of the targeted area, thereby heating the targeted hair follicle.

IPL and laser: hair removal process

These two methods are commonly referred to as diode hair removal methods. Both IPL (strong pulsed light) and laser can be used for photothermolysis.

Diode laser hair removal is more effective than IPL systems. Unlike laser hair removal processes that use the light of a single specific wavelength, IPL emits a full spectral range of flight between 400 nm and 1200 nm. So yes, it is targeted, but it also means it will be the pigment of our skin. There are also comments on the IPL side effects on the Internet. The laser uses a single wavelength. These are some of the results of laser hair removal treatment.

The benefits of laser hair removal treatment

Time efficiency
Results based on the technique used and pulse rate
Therefore, be sure to consult a highly designated doctor and do not rely on a beauty clinic for hair removal.
