IPL and True Laser Hair Removal

When it comes to permanent hair removal, many people don’t know that there’s a difference between IPL and true laser hair removal.

IPL hair removal uses a multifunctional platform with multiple different wands to target a variety of conditions, including broken capillaries, collagen building and pigmentation. It’s a cheaper option than true lasers for spas.

True laser systems, such as Mediostar requires a significant investment. It can take a while for a spa to save up enough to afford a specialist true laser machine, which offers targeted permanent hair removal.

“I found a spa that offers IPL near me, but what’s the difference?”

IPL and laser both use light energy which the dark hair pigments absorb. The laser causes damage to the hair follicles, which ultimately destroys the hair root and reduce hair growth.

Laser’s unique properties include:

  • Unlike ordinary light, laser does not cancel itself out. It is coherent.
  • Laser light waves are parallel and divergent (collimated) which makes it potent. Therefore, almost all the light can be used for hair reduction treatment.
  • Laser light emissions are of the same wavelength (chromatic) which makes them more potent.

These characteristics make lasers a fantastic tool to selectively target specific chromophores by targeting melanin. The lasers deeply penetrate the target, but it avoids being absorbed by other chromophores.

IPL is actually not laser at all. In fact, it produces a broad spectrum of wavelengths, similar to a light bulb. IPL cannot be concentrated or focused into a beam to selectively target chromophores.

The variety of wavelengths that are distributed at different depths makes it difficult for the light to be effectively absorbed into hair follicles. These factors make IPL less effective than true laser hair removal treatment and that is why IPL is much cheaper than true laser hair removal – it is less effective.

I started going to Bradford Skin Clinic because of Alex my injecting nurse. She started there recently (but has many years of experience). It’s a beautiful and clean place with professional service. If it’s Botox or filler for my lips, Alex was always gentle and patient. I love that she is 💯% honest with me and will always stop me from making bad decisions in regards to my face! LoL!

Just had my very first ever micro-needling experience and in 24 hours utterly FANTASTIC results which will get even better over the next few weeks. Love that Jess talked me through the entire experience prior, loved that she focused in on the need areas and was diligent about her technique and maximizing the needles depth and range where appropriate. A day later my skin is smoother, pores already diminishing, fine line disappearing. I loved this treatment and highly recommend!

I got my first ever peel 3 weeks ago and started using a cleanser and moisturizer that Mia recommended to me. Within a couple of days I noticed a big difference in the way my skin looked and felt. I also HAD a lot of facial veins that I was very embarrassed by. Mia suggested a photo rejuvenation for broken capillaries and we scheduled it for the following week. I went in with a feeling like oh well let see what this can do as I had been living with this for so long I wasn’t sure anything would help. 20 minutes later about 80% was gone and within about 3 days another 10% was gone with 1 treatment! That was a week ago yesterday. I went to the open house yesterday with no make up on so I could show Mia, Ashley and Jessica what they did for me. I am so thankful and grateful. I will definitely be back soon for another treatment and continued maintenance. The clinic is beautifully decorated and spotless clean. The owner and staff are amazing women and so welcoming. I highly recommend Bradford Skin Clinic.
