IPL OR LASER?
IPL should not be confused with laser, as laser and IPL are not
same type of treatment method even if the principle works in the same way.
Laser is a type of treatment method that is only used in salons and is a so-called monochromatic coherent light source, while IPL is a broad-spectrum light source.
The difference between IPL and laser
Both treatment methods focus on treating the melanin in the skin
the hair follicle and both treatment methods are expected to provide permanent results,
i.e. permanent hair removal in the area being treated.
Laser treatments are performed in a salon by trained staff, while IPL can be performed by the consumer at home without training, the result is the same but the price and length of treatment differ between salon and home treatment.
