Before you decide on Laser hair removal it is important to understand what machine and technology is being used. The 2 major types of technology are Diode Laser and IPL (intense pulse light). SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL AND LASER HAIR REMOVAL Unlike laser treatments, which have just one specific wavelength emitted from the diode depending on what you’re targeting, IPL has multiple wavelengths (all between 500 and 1,200 nanometres) that scatter within the skin. UNDERSTANDING DIODE LASER HAIR REMOVAL The key to successful diode laser hair removal is the deliverance of high energy into the skin. The energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin surrounding the hair follicle whilst not impacting the surrounding tissue. Diode lasers use a single wavelength of light that has a high abruption rate in melanin. As the melanin heats up it destroys the root and blood flow to the follicle disabling the hair growth permanently. High quality laser hair removal machines such as Vectus incorporate freeze refrigeration contact cooling (+5ÂșC) to protect the surface of the skin, making the treatment a comfortable, pain-free experience for patients. Diode lasers deliver high frequency, low fluence pulses and can be safely used on all skin types. UNDERSTANDING IPL LASER HAIR REMOVAL IPL (intense pulsed light) technology is technically not a laser treatment. It uses a broad spectrum of light with many wavelengths meaning it leads to unfocused energy around the hair and skin area. As a result there is much wastage of energy and less selective absorption in the follicle resulting in less effective destruction of the hair. Using broadband light also increases the potential for side effects such as burns or pigmentation, particularly if integrated cooling is not used. IPLs are typically only suitable for lighter skin types (1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale) for the most part. Unlike laser treatments, which emit a specific wavelength, IPL works like a flash-lamp, sending out scattered wavelengths of light, making IPL very targeted. That also means it affects the pigment in your skin too, so IPL only really works for those with fair skin and dark hair. “It’s now generally accepted that IPL is a good workhorse for treating blood vessels, but not a very good one for hair removal. The truth is, it’s limited and quite uncomfortable,” says Dr Patrick Bowler, laser expert, and director of Courthouse Clinics. “The great thing about laser is that you can specifically set them up, adapting the nanometre of the wavelengths to target an exact pigment. For example we know that brown hair is zapped at 800 nanometres.” A spokesperson at SK:N clinic explains, “IPL is far less effective than laser hair removal. The energy is produced by a lamp, a little like a light bulb, and produces a variety of light waves, meaning that it is more diffused and less powerful and usually limited to use on fairer skin types.” Sincerely, Kanwal Sohail

SO WHY DO SPAS USE IPL MACHINES Many Spas use IPL machines as they are less expensive and they can use a single machine to do multiple services. At Imaan’s we did extensive research and an evaluation of various Diode lasers before selecting the Vectus Laser Hair Removal using the latest technology. The Vectus is the fastest (under 30 minutes full legs) and safest laser (using Skintel Melanin tester) on the market, and is used by medical professionals in their practice. There is no need to spend hours and suffering through painful treatments while getting laser done using older technology. The Vectus Diode laser has contact cooling and the largest spot size to speed up the laser treatment and provide exceptional results.
