What is the difference between IPL technology and DIODE LASER technology? And the cost of hair removal by IPL technology and hair removal by DIODE LASER technology ?.
1. IPL technology
WHAT IS IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. IPL hair removal technology is designed to interrupt the hair growth cycle by targeting the legs or hair follicles. Light energy is transmitted through the skin surface and absorbed by the melanin present in the hair shaft. The absorbed light energy is converted into heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which breaks down follicles and stops hair from growing. Treated hair falls off spontaneously in a few days to 1-2 weeks.
Is IPL safe for my skin?
IPL is absolutely safe to use on most skin tones, but due to the technology's mechanism, it cannot be used for very dark skin, Fitzpatrick skin tones 6, or on red, gray hair. or very bright (blond). And don't forget that all SmoothSkin products have safety sensors attached to ensure that only activates when safe skin tones are detected.
How IPL works
High Intensity Pulse Light (IPL) to disrupt the hair growth cycle.
Light energy is transmitted through the skin surface and absorbed by the melanin present in the hair shaft.
The light energy is converted to thermal energy (below the surface of the skin), which prevents the hair from growing back. Treated hair falls off spontaneously in a few days to 1-2 weeks.
Once you have completed the initial phase of treatment, you will need to continue your regular course of treatment, but the great thing is that the IPL technology will prevent hair growth as long as you continue the regular treatment. So as long as you continue the treatments, you will never experience regrowth of leg hair or armpit hair again, and especially the pores will be tightened, making your skin smoother.
2. Laser Diode Technology
Diode Laser, also known as cold-temperature semiconductor hair removal solution, offers the perfect solution to "destroy" unwanted hair follicles.
Diode laser uses an advanced light treatment to permanently remove hairs on the skin.
High-tech diode laser applies direct impact diode laser light to each hair follicle on the epidermis, separates the hair follicle roots from the posterior skin cells in the middle and dermis layers, eliminating hairs from root to break. Destroying the nutrients that nourish the hair follicles, destroy the nail follicle germs deep in the skin cells without affecting the skin layer in the epidermis as well as the surrounding skin.
Diode Laser light with a wavelength of 810nm is called the gold standard for hair removal, because the 810nm wavelength is effective for hair removal for many skin types, especially for brown, black. 810nm Diode Laser directly affects each hair on the skin epidermis, separates hair follicle roots from deep skin cells in the middle layer and dermis, eliminates hairs from root to tip, destroying nourishing nutrients. Live follicle, destroy the follicle living germ deep in skin cells.
Difference Between Laser and IPL
Laser and IPL both work to prevent hair growth by using light and heat respectively to target the hair follicles, consistent with the hair growth cycle. However, the technology used to deliver light is actually quite different - the main difference being the type of light.
IPL devices produce a wide range of light wavelengths to produce a single white flash. This light may appear with an orange / red glow when the device is projected against the skin, like a camera flash. Lasers use wavelengths of light to create a beam, like a laser pen.
Due to these differences, laser treatments and IPL have differences in:
Treatment duration: Because the light beam used in laser therapy is highly concentrated, the treatment areas are very small. Thanks to IPL's use of wider flash light, IPL devices have a larger treatment window and can therefore treat a much wider area at once, which means much faster treatment times than lasers. .
A more concentrated, single beam light used in laser therapy is often reported to be more painful than treatment with IPL.
Cost: The cost to create laser light is very expensive, and especially in beauty salons, laser treatment is usually more expensive than IPL. IPL is usually much more affordable.
Laser treatment will give better results. However, you also need to have repeated treatment.
Safety: Laser light is very strong and can even be dangerous. For this reason, home laser hair removal devices use significantly lower energy levels, especially compared with those at expensive salons. The benefit of IPL therapy is that it is much safer to use because the light is less concentrated and can therefore be used at home without danger and with long lasting results.
