The difference between photon hair removal, laser hair removal and ice cooling hair removal

Time : 2022-03-28 Hits : 10


We have introduced a lot about hair removal before. I believe you must have an understanding on it, but there are so many methods of hair removal, such as photon hair removal, laser hair removal and ice cooling hair removal. If you don't distinguish them carefully, you don't know how many "hair gangs" you want to halo.

 

What are photon hair removal, laser hair removal and ice cooling hair removal?

 

Photon depilation: photon depilation is also known as IPL depilation. IPL photon depilation is a strong pulse light with a wavelength of 475-1200nm. The depilation effect is more lasting than the traditional depilation methods (traditional depilation methods include razor, hair removal cream, honey wax, etc.). At the same time of depilation, our skin can be relatively better. Light penetrates the skin to the hair follicle, because there is more melanin in the hair follicle. Melanin will absorb light and convert it into heat energy, and the heated hair follicle will enter a dormant state, and then break the hair follicle to achieve the effect of depilation.

 

Laser hair removal: the principle of laser hair removal is similar to that of IPL photon hair removal. Both of them penetrate into skin hair follicles through light and destroy hair follicles, so as to achieve the effect of hair removal. The difference between them is that the energy of laser hair removal is much greater than that of photon hair removal, and the effect of laser hair removal will be better than that of photon hair removal. Of course, the cost will be much higher, Laser hair removal is generally used in hospitals and beauty salons. The operators have received very professional training to operate the instruments.

 

Ice cooling depilation: Based on the above two depilation methods, ice cooling depilation will be milder, less painful and faster, and the depilation area will increase each time, which greatly shortens the treatment time. At the same time, due to the increase of depilation light spot, uniform and scattered energy, the stimulation effect on the skin is also reduced several times, which also makes the depilation process faster and less painful, The biggest difference in mechanism between ice cooling depilation and traditional laser depilation is that traditional laser depilation requires instantaneous high-energy burning of hair follicles, while ice cooling depilation gently makes hair follicles automatically lose activity, so it can achieve the purpose of depilation without over stimulating the skin and avoiding pain and risk.

 

No matter which method we use to depilate, we should choose based on our own conditions. There is always one that will suit us.
