Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology is not a laser. IPL works by emitting scattered wavelengths of light. It’s similar to a laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. Or, it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again.
The Nd:YAG laser offers hair reduction and some studieshave shown permanent reduction. This laser damages the hair growth structures with photoacoustic vibration in addition to selective photothermolysis. Our device can be used with all Fitzpatrick skin types and are commonly used for the treatment of fine dark hairs, particularly on the face and safely used in darker skin.
Patients may experience a range of outcomes in addition to lack of growth, such as fewer, thinner, and lighter hair. Patients are unlikely to be\ permanently bald with no hair growth in the area after a series of LHR treatments.
A series of LHR treatments is required to achieve optimal results. Typically, individuals with light Fitzpatrick skin types (I–III) require a series of 6 treatments, and dark skin types(IV–V) require 8 treatments, or occasionally more.
Laser hair removal treatments are uncomfortable as hair follicles are innervated. Discomfort is usually similar to a rubber band snap. In some cases topical anesthetic can decrease discomfort but will not stop pain all together.
Laser hair removal is most effective when performed as a series of 6–8 treatments with adequately long intervals between treatments.
