FAQ

What is the difference between IPL and a laser? There are two big differences between Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light. Generally IPL covers a much larger area than the relatively small treatment spot with lasers and therefore treatments of larger areas are much quicker. The other difference is the wavelength of light produced. Lasers produce light with a specific wavelength whilst IPL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. This limits IPL to specific skin types.

How big is the treatment area? 20mm x 10mm

Why is it important to shave? It is important that any area being treated is shaved so all the light energy is directed straight to the hair root for maximum effect. This also prevents burning of the hair above the skin surface which can be uncomfortable.

What safety features does it have? The main safety feature regulates the power level, so that it can only be increased by 1 step per treatment, starting from power level 1. This reduces the risk of using too high a power level. Power can be decreased in as many steps as required. Other safety features include:
  • A keylock
  • A security code to prevent misuse
  • Skin sensors on the wand to ensure IPL treatment only occurs when good contact is made with the skin
  • A bright orange blink safety light which will cause a blink reaction if pointed directly at the eye
  • A UV filter in the IPL aperture to avoid the risk of damaging UV light.
  • Over temperature detection

Are there any side effects? As with all hair removers which use light energy, there may be slight reddening of the skin after use or lightening of the skin in patches. They should both disappear within 24 hours.
