IPL VS LASER HAIR REMOVAL

The technology and results that we have seen whilst using the soprano machine on many satisfied clients, has made me so passionate about laser treatments due to soprano delivering on what it promises, permanent hair reduction. Also, I have had the treatment done myself and highly recommended. Here at Swiss Care, we have been using soprano for many years and it has become increasingly popular more and more. Due to it being pain-free, more affordable and due to all our years of experience and being CQC registered client and always being highly recommended. One of the most common questions asked in my consultations is what is the difference between IPL and laser? So In this article, I’m going to explain just what is the difference as often a lot of clients I come across seemed to find the whole thing quite confusing. The laser produces a wavelength of energy that targets the melanin of the hair bulb, the hair bulb is destroyed which results in hair reduction. The heat from the energy produced only targets the root so the skin is not affected.

Which means there is less chance of burning IPL is not a laser , IPL is intense pulsed light. So unlike laser which is a direct concentration of energy, IPL is a broad spectrum of wavelengths. So it cannot be as concentrated as the laser, therefore the IPL wavelength varies and distributes and does not put the same amount of focused energy on the hair follicle as a laser, which affects the results of hair reduction. IPL does not treat as deep as laser, So thick, dark Corse hairs don’t get treated as successfully as they do with the laser.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET RESULTS?
Generally after 10 days to 2 weeks from your first session you start seeing a difference in the hair growth. Most of the hairs will fall out and re grows finer.
HOW DOES PAIN-FREE, HAIR FREE WORK?
Using carefully controlled pulses of laser light, the SopranoXL Diode Laser System’s proprietary IN-Motion ™ technology selectively and gradually heats the hair in the follicles within the dermal layer of skin. The laser slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results.
DOES IT WORK ON ALL HAIR AND SKIN COLOURS?
It is the pigment in the hairs themselves that convert the laser energy into the heat necessary for permanent hair reduction. The darker the hair the more effective the treatment will be.
Yes, Pain-Free, Hair-Free works on all skin types, including tanned skin. To ensure the safety of darker-skinned patients, laser energy may be reduced.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
No! Our advanced machines have minimal discomfort as the lasers release the energy slowly and build up heat comfortably, as opposed to old lasers that shoot out energy in one hit. No numbing cream required, you can just lie back and relax.
HOW LONG DOES A LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT TAKE?
The length of time needed depends on the size of the area being treated. For instance, the upper lip will only take minutes, while other areas, like the leg will take more time.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
It suggested to have 6 sessions but top ups are needed after. This depends on your hormones and different
WHAT COMPLICATIONS AND RISKS ARE POSSIBLE?
Occasionally blisters can develop, and very rarely, scarring or infection.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Tanning should be avoided for 4 weeks before attending your laser session. Also you need to be shaving the area for a 4-6weeks and not taking the hair out from the root or this will interfere with your results, avoid waxing, tweezing, or bleaching those areas for 4-6 weeks before laser treatment. Also you are required to be clean shaven before your appointment on the area being treated.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AFTER THE TREATMENT?
After the treatment we recommend that you do not bathe in hot water or apply any scented products to the areas treated. Do not sunbathe for 4 weeks after. Do not go swimming or excessive exercise for 48 hours after laser.
WILL I LOOK PRESENTABLE AFTER TREATMENT?
After laser treatment, there is usually some pinkness or redness in the treated area which goes away after a short time but in some cases, a little makeup is helpful to minimize redness, this must be mineral make up.
