IPL and Laser, both form two different ways to treat the same thing- unwanted hair. However, there are a few major differences between the two, and they must not be confused with each other. While on one hand, IPL uses a wide spectrum of light wavelengths to treat large areas of the skin; Laser, on the other hand, focuses more on a single beam of light to treat small areas. The treatment time for IPL is way lesser than that of Laser. Your qualified laser technician can help you decide which method is best suited for you based on your fitzpatrick skin type classification, for permanent hair reduction. Both techniques of treatment can be heat controlled to suit the skin type of the patients. As reliable techniques of guaranteed hair removal, IPL and Laser provide permanent results.
