IPL and Laser are one of the most popular nonsurgical beauty procedures for skin rejuvenation and hair removal with long-term results.
Both IPL and Laser use light technology which targets the dark pigment in hair and skin. In hair reduction the light heats the hair follicle damaging it, affecting the body’s ability to re-produce hair. IPL machines use a broad-spectrum wavelength, like a light bulb, the light spreads over a large area. Laser’s use a more specific focused light energy to penetrate deep into one area. The most effective results are on dark hair with fair skin, your clinician should understand which treatment and machine would be most effective for your skin type. A course of treatments is recommended for best results.
Any part of the body can be treated. The most popular areas are the smaller high-maintenance areas, underarm and bikini. Both popular for the rash free smooth clean look, that lasts long-term.
IPL also effectively treats beauty imperfections like pigmentation, vascular conditions and acne and is successfully used for skin rejuvenation and sun damage.
These are powerful machines that can cause permanent damage, like unwanted pigmentation or skin lightening, burning and scarring. Be sure your clinician understands how medications, medical conditions, sun exposure, and hormonal changes can affect your response to treatments. A good practitioner will give you a very thorough assessment and give you clear direction for before and after care treatment. They will have completed a Laser Safety Officer and be registered with Qld Radiation.
