What Is The Difference Between Laser And IPL Hair Removal?（partⅢ）
IPL and Laser Hair Removal Results
Neither IPL or laser hair removal techniques will grant immediate results. Unlike with waxing and threading, you won’t leave the treatment session with completely smooth, hair-free skin. The hairs will instead drop out as they die over the next few weeks and those which have not been affected due to the stage of the growth cycle they were in for the first treatment will require another session (or more). You will be able to shave in between sessions though, as you don’t need to have any grow-out times.
However, the benefit of both IPL and laser hair removal over waxing and threading is that over time you will achieve permanent reduction of hair growth. Hairs that do grow will do so slower, so you won’t need to shave as often. They will also likely grow back thinner and less course. They may even grow paler, so they are less obvious.
Most people find they can achieve permanent hair loss from treated areas after between 1 and 10 treatments, with an average of 6 sessions for adequate results. Whichever method you choose, you may need to occasionally have a top-up treatment every few months or yearly, but you are likely to notice a huge difference in the reduction of hair growth.
At Home Laser and IPL Devices
There is now a great number of at-home IPL and laser hair removal kits available on the market, many of which are FDA-cleared. They use the same technology that dermatology clinics and skin salons use, but have been designed specifically so that they are safe to be used by untrained and unqualified persons. By using the same science as professional machines, they can achieve great results at a much more affordable price and enable you to treat your skin without having to leave the house.
Most are small enough to be packed into a suitcase, so you can take them away and treat yourself on the go. To take a look at some of the best at-home laser and IPL hair removal kits available, take a look at our product description.
