What Is benefits Laser And IPL Hair Removal?
The benefits of IPL hair removal
With the natural spread of broad-spectrum light, the coverage of IPL hair removal devices is greater than that of laser hair removal devices. Therefore, it may mean that treatment time may be faster because larger areas can be treated at once. In addition to faster treatment times, they can be quite cheap, but you may find that you need more sessions to get the same results.
The benefits of laser hair removal
The nature of the laser means that the laser hair removal device can focus the light into the pores of the skin, closer to the hair follicle to treat the skin and ultimately prevent regeneration. This may mean that laser hair removal can achieve faster results than IPL because a single hair is heated to a destructive temperature faster. Therefore, you may need less laser hair removal treatment to achieve the same result.
More specifically, it means that laser hair removal is more suitable for people with darker skin. This is because the darker skin absorbs more light than the shallower skin due to the amount of melanin (pigment) it contains. For example, deeper hair absorbs more light than lighter hair. Therefore, there is a risk that the deeper skin can be heated. The nature of the laser is more concentrated, and the smaller areas of light mean that they are more suitable for treating people with deeper skin because they greatly reduce the risk of burning compared to IPL. Having said that, some IPL systems still apply to deeper skin.
Face using IPL and laser
Both laser and IPL hair removal are techniques for women's faces. However, it should not be used on the scalp or eyebrows. They can be safely used below the cheek line, for example on the upper lip or chin, but should not be used near the eyes, as glare from light can damage your view. Therefore, even if you do not use IPL or laser hair removal, you must use enough eye protection when using IPL or laser hair removal. Some home kits include eye protection, but if they don't, you can get them cheaply. It is also important not to look directly at the light source.
IPL and laser hair removal side effects
Both IPL and laser hair removal methods have the same side effects. You can expect some skin irritation, which may be redness, swelling, itching or feeling soft. However, this is usually short-lived and should not exceed one day. Just treat skin allergies, just like sunburn, keep moisturized.
After both methods, the skin is more sensitive to sunlight, so it is important to use enough sunscreen on the skin before and after treatment. It is also important not to scratch the skin as it may be more delicate and keep the skin clean to prevent infection.
How long is IPL and laser hair removal?
The first use of IPL recorded in the academic literature occurred in a 1997 study in which hair loss was found to be a side effect of IPL skin treatment. The study used an IPL device called Photoderm VL and sought treatment for facial wine stains (fetal birthmarks). The researchers found that the lesion responded well to the first treatment and was completely cleared after the fourth treatment. Shortly after the study, the author published two cases of permanent facial hair removal. The same author also published an article on the successful use of IPL for basic telangiectasia (ETE), another skin disorder. Since then, the technology has been greatly improved and has created more powerful and predictable IPL devices.
IPL and laser hair removal effect
Neither IPL nor laser hair removal techniques produce immediate results. Unlike waxing and threading, you don't leave treatment time on completely smooth, hairless skin. As they die within the next few weeks, the hair will quit, and those that are unaffected by the stage of the growth cycle of the first treatment will require another course (or more). You can shave between meetings because you don't need any growth time.
However, the benefits of IPL and diode laser hair removal compared to waxing and threading are that you will permanently reduce hair growth over time. Growing hair grows slowly, so you don't need to shave often. They may also become thinner and less. They may even become paler, so they are less obvious.
Most people find that they can achieve permanent hair loss from the treatment area after 1 to 10 treatments, with an average of 6 treatments to achieve adequate results. Regardless of which method you choose, you may need to have a supplemental treatment every few months or every year, but you may notice a huge difference in hair growth reduction.
