LASER HAIR REMOVAL OR IPL?
Home use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) often recommends continued, on going treatment of the area every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth. This is because IPL doesn't destroy the hair root, so regrowth will occur if the treatment is not repeated every two weeks (this is also true for heat based hair removal). Laser Hair Removal technology actually destroys the hair root giving permanent hair reduction.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPLAINED
Lasers deliver an intense beam of light which are made up of a single wavelength or colour. Skin is essentially transparent to light with a wavelength of 808nm (nano meters), while melanin containing structures will absorb laser energy of this wavelength. It is therefore possible to target the hair follicle that has a concentration of melanin without affecting the surrounding area.
The light energy absorbed by the melanin pigment results in the rapid heating up of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells (papilla) responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, then the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in a permanent reduction in hair growth. Note: This is different from home IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which often requires continued treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth.
SUITABLE SKIN TYPES
Melanin in the epidermis also absorbs the energy and limits the depth of penetration of the laser light into the skin. Using a light wavelength of 808nm enables treatment of relatively dark skin as well as fair-skin types. However, laser hair treatment is not suitable for Afro-Caribbean or black skin complexions. Laser treatment is also ineffective in removal of white or grey hair. Electrolysis should be considered as an alternative treatment.
