Silk’n Flash & Go vs Laser Hair Removers
LASER VS IPL HAIR REMOVERS
At home lasers for permanent hair removal use either Lasers or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). Both use the same principle of light heating pigment in the hair follicle to kill the hair root causing permanent hair removal.
Both laser and IPL are safe and effective. Lasers provide permanent hair removal faster than IPL but the cost of a laser is much higher. Let’s compare laser with IPL hair removers.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
-Lasers are corded or battery operated/rechargeable.
-Laser light is very effective for permanent hair removal.
-Laser hair removers require fewer treatments for permanent hair loss.
–Treatment area for a laser is much smaller than an IPL – longer treatment times.
-Lasers are more expensive than IPL’s and laser cannot be replaced.
“Lifespan of Tria’s laser is approximately 100,000 flashes – Laser cannot be replaced. The treatment area of the Tria 4X Laser is 0.2 square inches.”
IPL (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT) HAIR REMOVER
-IPL’s use a high power flash lamp for hair removal.
-IPL light is a broader spectrum of light compared to lasers. The broad spectrum also heats darker blood vessels that nourish the follicle lending to permanent hair removal.
-IPL devices corded units & battery operated/rechargeable.
-IPL style hair removers have very large treatment areas meaning shorter application times.
-IPL units are less expensive than lasers with the ability to replace the high intensity lamp.
“Lifespan of Silk’n lamps range from 100,000 to 300,000 flashes and are replaceable. The treatment area for the Silk’n Flash & Go is 1.2 square inches”
