The difference between Laser Hair Removal and IPL Hair Removal

The difference between Laser Hair Removal and IPL Hair Removal isn’t always known.

It’s a commonly googled question, what is the difference between Laser Hair Removal and IPL Hair Removal?

Over the decades as technology has evolved we’ve gone from traditional waxing and hair removal creams, to highly sophisticated forms of laser and IPL hair removal. With so many options and beauty clinics offering hair removal services in Perth, how do you know which one is best for you?

At Sea Beauty North Beach we feel it’s important to understand the difference between each hair removal treatment and what the outcome will be.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Firstly, it’s important to be aware that Laser Hair Removal and IPL Hair Removal are not the same thing. Laser hair removal has until recently required a doctor’s sign off. The laser machine produces a single wavelength of light, which is a very concentrated beam to target the melanin in the hair follicle. Laser machines can be adjusted to suit varying skin types and hair. This has made them more effective at hair removal than IPL treatments.

What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL Treatments, otherwise known as intense pulsed light, is not a laser. IPL machines produce a broad spectrum of intense light that targets the darker pigments of hair. This in turn heats the hair and destroys their cells, preventing further growth.

What is Super Hair Removal?

Finally, there is a third hair removal option that is increasingly popular due to its non-painful and efficient treatment time. Super Hair Removal is a more advanced form of hair removal that is suitable for all hair and skin types.

At Sea Beauty North Beach, we have an advanced Super Hair Removal Machine. The SHR treatment painlessly and permanently removes hair from any area of the body. SHR  is a unique technology that delivers low heat levels at a fast delivery. This means that you won’t feel that hot flicking sensation you often find with traditional IPL. Treatment time for Super Hair Removal is often faster and more effective. This is due to in-motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion over the skin.

The large hand piece of the Super Hair Removal machine passes over a section of the skin 8 times back & forth to gradually build up the heat to kill the hair follicle beneath the surface producing a more effective result.
