UNDERSTANDING HAIR REMOVAL

Laser vs IPL - Understanding Hair Removal at Home

Are you looking for a permanent, safe solution to remove unwanted body and facial hair?

There are now an array of home and salon treatments on the market, yet it can be time-consuming trying to understand the countless number of options and confusing to know which solution is the most effective.

Tria Beauty is here to help! When researching hair removal options, one of the most important elements to understand is the difference between Laser and IPL, Intense Pulsed Light technology, including the processes involved and the results you can expect from each.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LASER AND IPL

HOW DOES LASER AND IPL TECHNOLOGY WORK?

Diode laser Technology | Laser vs IPL Hair Removal

Diode Lasers produce a single spectrum of intensely concentrated pure light in one single red colour and wavelength.

The laser precisely targets the dark pigment (melanin) in your hair follicle in order to heat the follicle to disable its ability to regrow hair, without heating the surrounding skin.

IPL Hair Removal | Laser vs IPL Hair Removal

IPL Hair Removal devices provide a broad spectrum of colours and wavelengths (like a light bulb) and it is not possible to focus the light energy to a concentrated beam.

Because IPL Hair Removal produce a range of different wavelengths and colours that are dispersed at various levels of depths, the diffused energy does not only target the melanin in your hair follicle, but also the surrounding skin.

IPL is often referred to as IPL Laser treatment. This is misleading, as the beam produced by IPL is broad spectrum light and does not involve lasers

CAN LASER OR IPL TECHNOLOGY PERMANENTLY REMOVE HAIR?

The Diode Lasers specific wavelength is optimised for
hair removal. *The laser beam allows for very deep, more powerful and precise penetration as the energy is targeted directly to the hair follicle, achieving accurate, permanent results. Once the hair follicle has been disabled, it loses its ability to regrow hair.

Intense Pulsed Light - IPL Technology

Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal can reduce and slow down hair regrowth but not permanently remove hair. Only a small percentage of the IPL energy is effectively absorbed by the hair follicle to achieve hair reduction.Therefore more and regular treatments are being needed, as thicker and deeper hair follicles might not be reached and disabled effectively.

DOES LASER OR IPL HAIR REMOVAL HURT?

DIODE LASER TECHNOLOGY

It varies per user. Users can control the intensity of the Diode Laser with Tria Beauty's Hair Removal Laser 4X. On the higher settings, some users might feel the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin or a warm pricking feeling, while others report no discomfort.

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) TECHNOLOGY

Once again, it varies per user. Because IPL Hair Removal uses various wavelengths in each pulse and also diffuses on the skin surrounding the hair follicle, some users may feel an increased level of discomfort.

IS LASER OR IPL TREATMENT COST EFFECTIVE

TRIA DIODE LASER TECNOLOGY

*Because Diode Laser technology is proven to permanently remove hair, users may find they can stop regular treatments altogether after three to six months, with the occasional top-up if required.

Intense Pulsed Light - IPL Technology

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) TECHNOLOGY

Because IPL Hair Removal doesn't permanently remove hair, users will require regular treatments on a long-term basis, with regular top-ups required over time. If the treatment is interrupted, the hair follicle will re-activate and hair will start to grow back.

IS LASER OR IPL TREATMENT COST-EFFECTIVE

Overall, Diode Laser hair removal technology is recommended for hair removal with permanent results, while IPL Hair Removal is recommended for hair reduction. This is because lasers create more heat and light energy directly concentrated to the hair follicle and only target melanin (the pigment that gives hair its colour), while the light energy of IPL diffuses on the skin surrounding the hair follicle.
