Types of at-home laser hair removal
Before you start doing laser hair removal at home, you should know about the technology and its substitutes. Let’s look at the two types of laser hair removal at home.
IPL and Laser Hair Removal are the two types of at-home laser hair removal but they differ in some features.
IPL is otherwise known as Intense Pulsed Light. People refer to it as IPL laser treatment. A fact about IPL is that diffused lights are used instead of a laser. The diffused light can’t go very deep into the skin.
Dark hairs absorb most of the Intense Pulsed Light wavelengths so the growth of the hair is interrupted. IPL works best for contrasting hair colors. For example, IPL works well on dark hair for light-skinned individuals rather than blonde hair or people with dark skin and hair.
