IPL vs. Laser: Which one is better for you?
You might think that these two methods of hair removal are pretty much the same, as both use light therapy to cause semi-permanent damage to the hair follicle. However, there are a few key differences between IPL and Laser that you should be aware of if you are thinking of choosing a long-term hair removal solution.
The difference between IPL and Laser is based on the model and strength of light that is emitted. The professional salon laser treatment utilizes a concentrated beam of light that penetrates targeted areas of the skin, providing a stronger immediate result. IPL, on the other hand, produces multiple wavelengths of light that cover a larger surface area of the skin. These wavelengths vary between 500 and 1200 nanometers. The larger surface area targeted by the IPL creates a faster treatment but the immediate result isn't as strong as a laser.
How Long Until I See Results?
As the strength of a salon laser treatment damages the bulb of the hair almost immediately, it will only take around six treatments to achieve the best results. However, regular treatments need to be spaced out with a month between each and can last over six months. An IPL treatment is recommended to be done once every week, with results usually present after the third or fourth session. With regular use, the best results are achieved after 12 weeks and will only need to be touched up every couple of months to maintain smooth skin.
How Much Does it Cost?
With laser and IPL technology taking over the modern beauty scene, an issue that has come up for many looking for a long-term hair removal solution is cost. For a professional salon laser treatment requiring multiple visits, the cost can range from $100 to $200 a session - which is unfortunately not super attainable or cost-friendly. For those looking for a more budget-friendly alternative to long-lasting hair removal, IPL is your go-to treatment. The introduction of FDA approved at-home IPL devices have allowed women to maintain their body hair for the fraction of the cost of professional laser treatments. Although they require more frequent use, the results that are achieved at the end are worth the investment.
