Important Note: IPL Machines are NOT Laser Hair Removal
One of the greatest injustices in the cosmetic industry today is the confusion between IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal and laser hair removal. The uncertainty is understandable – after all, many people understand lasers to be little more than ‘Intense Light’. However, IPL hair removal is very, very different to laser hair removal! When investing in hair removal treatments we encourage you to do your research into the differences between one potentially harmful, and one effective and safe treatment.
How do IPLs work?
Intense Pulsed Light systems use a beam of traditional light of many different wavelengths to burn the hair shaft, hopefully damaging the follicle to prevent immediate re-growth of the shaft that was removed. The big word for it is photothermolysis – ‘light heat breakdown’.
How does laser hair removal work?
If IPLs work by photothermolysis, laser hair removal works by selective photothermolysis … and that single word makes a world of difference! You don’t want to cause ‘light heat breakdown’ in the cells of your skin, you want to selectively target the hair cells and follicles. The use of a particular wavelength of light in laser hair removal is what allows that selectivity, creating a heat injury to the hair, but not the surrounding skin.
How can I tell the difference between IPL and laser hair removal?
The easiest and most direct way to tell the difference between the two treatments is to ask the provider. You can also check for:
Mention of specific wavelengths of light (measured in nm) in the description of the service
Mention of types of machine including an Argon laser, Ruby laser, Alexandrite laser, Pulsed Diode Array, or an Nd:YAG laser indicate that you are purchasing true laser hair removal.
Pricing. IPL treatments are much cheaper than laser treatments, mostly because the equipment is far cheaper. However, there’s little point paying for something that has no effect…
The Dangers of IPL
At best, IPL will create some reduction in hair growth in the long term. At worst, though, it causes severe burns, hypo-pigmentation, blistering and scarring. It’s a lesson that some people have to learn for the rest of their lives, unfortunately.
Additionally, many IPL injuries go unreported, with people feeling that they should have known better. IPL damage is never your fault – if it has happened to you, let somebody know!
