IPL vs Laser Which is Better Hair Removal?

laser vs iplMany people mistakenly believe that all laser hair removal procedures are the same. The laser machines look similar in appearance. However the technology inside is very different, and they do not provide the same results.
Laser technology is simply much more effective and achieves substantially better results than IPL (intense pulsed light) with most clients achieving optimal results of permanent hair removal of 80% or greater after four to eight treatments. Laser hair removal is more effective, safer, and the only way hair removal should be done.

IPL lasers on the other hand are not lasers. These devices produce a broad spectrum of wavelengths and cannot be focused to a concentrated beam. Because IPL has a range of different wavelengths, the light energy is dispersed at a variety of depths. Only some of this light energy are effectively absorbed by the hair shaft and follicle. The results are substandard, plus it increases the risks of burns.

IPL is not as strong as laser so will need more sessions. This puts your skin under more stress, and it will spend more time healing. Most IPL machines use a range of wavelengths between 500 – 1000 nm. As these wavelengths are exposed to the skin, there is no ability for the light to discriminate between chromophores within the skin. Due to the broad spectrum of light, obtaining sufficient energy to destroy certain deep targets such as hair is often challenging.

Many clinics offer IPL hair removal treatments at very discounted rates. This is because laser machines are 3-10 times more expensive than IPL machines. Our GentleMax machines fall in the in the range of $120-$150,000 each. If you see “Laser Hair Removal” at greatly reduced prices, most likely the clinics are using IPL machines and are often not FDA and Health Canada approved. If you want effective, safe, hair removal treatments, we recommend sticking with our LASER hair removal machines like the Candela GentleMax Pro Plus™. IPL is not laser hair removal and will require more treatments and produce less effective hair reduction.

How does laser removal hair work?

During laser hair removal sessions, light from the laser penetrates through the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the light energy, which destroys the hair. Laser hair removal treatments can treat every area of the body where there is hair.

Our laser hair removal treatments are done in-clinic with our experienced laser technician. Our laser technician will use a small handpiece to deliver a burst of intense energy targeting the skin area to be treated. 

What areas of the body can you treat with laser hair removal?

Our laser hair removal treatments are done by Cynosure Elite iQ which is designed for ALL skin types. This technology treats grey and light hair as well, but may need a few extra sessions. Each laser hair removal treatment session takes between 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the target area.

SMALL areas include: belly line, areola, chin, cheeks, feet and toes, ears, hands and fingers, forehead, sideburns, underarms, and upper lip.

MEDIUM areas include: lower back, Brazilian, neck, forearms, shoulders, upper arms.

LARGE areas include: upper back, lower back, upper legs, lower legs, full abs.

FULL BODY INCLUDES: Full arms, full legs, underarms, Brazilian, full face.

Can you do laser hair removal on darker skin tones with the Elite iQ?

Yes, not all IPL and laser machines cater to all skin types and colours, but the Elite iQ can do treatments that’s just right for you, regardless of your skin tone or colour.  At laser hair removal Toronto clinic, our Elite iQ laser will do the best hair removal treatment for you.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full permanent hair removal effect. The hairs on your body are not always in the same stage for optimal hair removal, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of four to eight weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage. We usually recommend a standard protocol of six to eight laser hair removal sessions to achieve the desired clearance in the treated area. In between treatments clients can shave which encourages the damaged follicle to shed.

How do I prepare for my laser hair removal Toronto treatment?

You should avoid electrolysis, waxing, or plucking, six weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment. Your skin should be clean-shaven and clean from creams, oils, makeup, self-tanning products, or topical anesthetics, on the day of your hair removal treatment.

Prior to and immediately after your treatment, you should avoid tanning beds or sunlight and apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above). A prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed if you have a history of herpes simplex virus.

How long does laser hair removal take?

A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. On average it only takes about 15 minutes to do both legs, or an average sized man’s back.

What can I expect after treatment?

After each laser hair removal session, there may be some temporary redness on the skin. Most people return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Any redness or swelling of the skin should resolve in a few hours.

What precautions should I take after treatment?

In the first few days after treatment, don’t rinse or scrub the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. You should also apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) to prevent sun exposure.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure which as improved over the years. Permanent side effects are rare and may include swelling, redness, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, laser bruise (purpura) in the treated areas. Most of these side effects do not last more than a few days.

Who can’t receive laser treatments?

Laser hair removal are suitable for most male and females over the age of 18 years. There are certain conditions which prevent clients from being treated, such as medications that can cause light (photo) sensitivity, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding

How much does laser hair removal Toronto clinic cost?

When comparing IPL pricing and laser hair removal, IPL will typically be cheaper than laser given that the results are less effective and in the long run would require a lot more treatments. Pricing is based on the area treated and number of sessions. We do offer special package pricing. Please click here for the latest laser hair removal Toronto specials.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Once the hair follicles are destroyed, the results are permanent.  Sometimes they are damaged and not destroyed, which causes the hairs to regrow. Repeat sessions are required due to the hair growth cycle – anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen stages of the hair cycle.  The anagen stage is the hair growth stage. The hair on your head has an anagen stage of about 3-7 years, whereas body hair is only 2-4 months. That’s why the hairs on your head continue to grow whereas your body hair stops growing. The anagen phase is the only phase where laser hair removal is effective. Not all your hairs are in the same cycle at any given time. About 20% of your hairs are in the anagen phase, therefore multiple treatments are required to target the hairs when they are in the anagen phase to permanently destroy the hair follicles.
