This machine is actually not a laser but is a kind of light. The light rays from this IPL does not go deep enough to damage thick hairs. Light and thin hairs may be treated well with this machine, but when it comes to dark and thick hairs, IPL is not the one which should be opted for. As this technology is cheapest among all, the cost of treatment is also low with IPL Laser Hair Reduction Treatment.
This technology is based on actual laser wavelength and has either 808 nm or 810 nm wavelength. Diode laser is good in treating hairs with medium thickness and medium level depth in skin (Around 70-80% of dark and thick hairs comes in this category). So Diode laser hair reduction is 70 – 80% effective for dark and thick hairs and no effect on thin hairs. This technology is better and costlier then IPL and thus cost of treatment would be higher then IPL Laser Hair Reduction.
The Triple Wavelength Laser is an amazing technology to damage unwanted hairs. This laser fires three wavelengths in a single go. The 755 nm targets superficial and fine hairs, the 808 nm targets thick and dark hairs while 1064 nm targets thickest hairs located very deep in the skin. So with triple wavelength laser we target wide range of hair thickness to get best results. This way, it is the best technology to treat unwanted hairs of all types be it fine hair, coarse hair, grey hair. Being more intensive than the previous generation lasers, it reduces the visit to the clinic as the time to follow up is more in this than the others. Since it targets the pigmentation and melanin is same for hair and skin equally, most people notice a reduction in tan and brighter skin with progressive sittings.
