How laser/IPL works
Although very different technologies both laser and IPL systems use the melanin (colour), in the hair shaft to absorb the therapeutic light, thus heating and destroying the target hair follicle by conduction. This is known as selective photothermolysis. For this to work effectively there must be more dark colour in the hair than in the surrounding skin.
Benefits of laser/IPL hair removal
The major benefit of laser/IPL hair removal is that it is clinically proven to kill hair follicles on a long term basis. We at Cristianos have proven results lasting over twenty years. There are other benefits such as laser/IPL is suitable for the treatment of small or large areas of hair growth, there is very little down time after treatment, with only mild side effects. Laser/IPL hair removal is non-invasive and runs no risk of infection. The unwanted hair growth does not need to be grown in order to have treatment and the number of treatments required is far less than traditional electrolysis.
