All About Laser Hair Removal Differences in Laser vs. IPL Introduction to BARE Before and After Pictures Important Tips when Choosing A Laser Center Benefits of LHR at Bare
~A Laser is device that emits a wavelength of light. These light waves end up as heat inside the skin causing hair follicle deactivation where the hair grows. The light energy is only absorbed into the very surface layers of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue unaffected by the laser energy.
This gives hair follicles time to shed post treatment and allows hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase to transition back to the active growth phase.
-Laser emits synchronized light waves of the same wavelength, providing very specific and intense targeted energy delivery to the hair follicle. It is a high technology based light source that is able to focus in on the hair follicle. -IPL defined in encyclopedia: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) epilators (electrical device) though technically not containing a Laser, use Xenon Flash Lamps that emit full spectrum light. IPL-based methods are now commonly (but incorrectly) referred to as "laser hair removal". IPL on the emits a spectrum of various wavelengths of light scattering throughout the surrounding tissue.

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 diffuse and less powerful. It is usually limited to use on fairer skin types. -Specific wavelength of light based on skin type -The wavelength of light varies and scatters to surrounding tissue not concentrating the energy on hair follicles -The energy penetrates down to the end of follicle without damaging surrounding tissue. -May cause temporary shedding of the hair and some destruction of hair follicles, this is why some med spas market IPL for LHR -Permanent death of the hair follicle when hair is in the active growth phase at time of treatment. -Many have reported that the hair does come back after a number of treatments -Effective results; Safe for all skin typesIPLs have various wavelengths of light making it not safe for dark skin types
