What are the differences between IPL and Laser treatments?
The key difference between Laser and IPL is the type of light. Laser light is monochromatic, non-divergent and targets very specific concerns. IPL produces a broadband spectrum of white light, producing a mixture of many different colours. These colours can be controlled using filters. IPL is therefore more versatile and with Medical Grade IPL you can perform a wide range of treatments, achieving fantastic results which are very comparable to a high specification Laser. Both methods target melanin and in combination, Laser and Medical Grade IPL can be used to achieve even better results.
An example of a treatment that is more effective with Laser treatment is tattoo removal, as the light is constantly emitted with no interruptions, delivering high energy at a fast rate. This causes heat, which then shatters the pigment in the tattoo. IPL on the other hand, releases light in one or more short bursts. This is beneficial for treatments of hair removal, vessels and certain pigment because the technology selectively heats and destroys these chromophores to provide a flawless, airbrushed appearance.
Medical Grade IPL technology is perfect for non-medics because the safety profile is extremely high. Our data shows that there is less than 1% instance of adverse reactions, and there is no risk of causing infection. However, the results that can be achieved are comparable to much more aggressive and higher risk treatments, which is great for salons and clinics.
