IPL Laser

Hair that grows on the face, upper lips hairs, forehead, ears, neck, abdomen, chin and under the chin and cheeks is called Hirsutism or excess hair growth. Removing these hairs is an unpleasant and difficult. There were various methods for removing excess hair for years. Face threading, shaving creams and powders, waxing, shaving machines, razors and tweezers, and chemical materials are some of these solutions to remove hairs. Due to the temporary and painful of these methods, we need a method that would eliminate the excess hair and difficult methods of removing them forever. In this regard, we can remove these hairs by using laser hair removal machine.

How laser hair removal works

If we want to explain the function of laser therapy briefly, it should be said that the light rays emitted from the laser device target skin pigments which called melanin.

The laser is applied to the skin and absorbed into the hair follicles, causing the melanin to heat up, resulting in the heating of the hair follicles, which eventually destroys the hair follicles.

Therefore, the goal of laser treatment is to damage the hair follicle to destroy that follicle and lose the ability of hair growth forever. However, it should be noted that in any case, the laser won`t remove all hairs in one session. (The reason why not all hair is lost in one session is related to the hair life cycle and growth stages).

The laser hair removing is depending on the skin type and different skin colors, a variety of lasers and their light sources can be used to remove excess body and face hair. Laser hair removal cause permanent and long-term hair loss and is a non-invasive method.

In the past, laser hair removal was used only for light-skinned people, but with the advancement of technology, today this method is also used for dark-skinned people and is safe for them.

In some cases, it may take several years to eliminate the excess hair. Cares must be taken after laser treatment. It is impossible to tell who needs a laser and how many sessions in order for the hair to be completely removed.


IPL device or intense pulsed light

  • Wavelength: 1200 – 500 nm

Although it has the same therapeutic application as lasers, IPL is not essentially a laser.

Lasers use a beam of monochromatic light at a single wavelength, but IPL uses a multicolored, decentralized, broad-spectrum beam of light to irradiate the skin and target melanin. IPL is able to target larger areas more quickly, while the laser focuses more on a specific point.

As one of the safest methods of hair removal on the market, its effect on dark skin in the long run is not the same as laser. The IPL device can be used to treat light hair, but no research has been done on its effectiveness on the light hairs. It is usually cheaper and less painful than lasers. The result with IPL is not as good as a laser.

The most important benefit of using the IPL system is that in addition to removing excess hair, the device can be treated by changing the filter to treat various skin conditions such as pigmentation, skin vascular problems, acne and skin rejuvenation.
