Both modalities have been widely used in surgery in that both also serve the same purpose of treating skin problems as well as removing unwanted hair. A significant difference between the two is the coverage. Laser beams are narrower and cover small areas at a time. IPL coverage, on the other hand, discharges a broad wavelength range allowing various areas to be targeted concurrently. Also, lasers produce light only of a specific wavelength, whereas the IPL emits a broad spectrum of wavelength for multiple targets. IPL is able to treat all skin types no matter how light or dark including tanned skin. Lasers are restricted to treating lighter skin types only and pose a significant risk of burning to darker skin. Eg mediteranian and above.
IPL treatments can be performed on all areas of the body except the eye area.
The number of sessions required for IPL treatments varies. Since a complimentary consultation is conducted before treatment, you will know beforehand your individual course of treatment. Some may even require maintenance treatment once a year. But, typically, we only recommend you to undergo between 8-10 sessions for optimum results.
Basically, it all depends on the individual's pain threshold. It is less painful and more comfortable compared to other modalities because the procedure is fast. For IPL hair removal, hair is not directly pulled off from the follicle. Thus, it is less painful compared to waxing. The active cooling added on the hand-piece also provides comfort during the treatment. The experience is often described as a snapping of a rubber band or some stinging sensation.
Subsequently, most people experience some mild redness and/or warmth of the skin. Although the discomfort can be effortlessly tolerated and does not interfere with your normal activities, you can opt to use cold, wet compresses if necessary. There are also instances that you may experience some subtle crusting or slight scabbing. However, these side effects typically subside over a short period of time. The after-effects of the treatment generally vary from person to person.
IPL HAIR REMOVAL
After your IPL hair removal treatment you can expect approximately 20-30% of your hairs are shed off with each session. After every treatment, your hair will become sparser and less dense. IPL Photo Rejuvenation
If you are treating pigmented lesions, you will notice that the area will become slightly darker. However, it will gradually flake off after 4-10 days. Vascular lesions, on the other hand, may appear bruised or grayish. The surrounding area may also experience redness and some minor swelling which are only temporary. These, however, does not impede you from doing yuor everyday routine and that it will subside in a matter of time.
Anyone can basically undergo IPL treatments. However, it is essential to note that there are certain contraindications that need to be considered.
