Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between IPL hair removal and Laser hair removal?
Both IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Laser use the same concept of targeting the color in the hair follicle. Lasers generate a single wavelength of light (monochromatic). Monochromatic light is a concentrated single color that forms to target the melanin in the hair follicle specifically. IPL can be distinguished from Laser as it produces a broad spectrum of wavelengths (polychromatic). IPL has multiple wavelengths and cannot solely target the color in the hair follicle. It is because of this that IPL is known to be not quite as effective as Laser for permanent hair reduction.
How are Sun Spots Caused?
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays causes color changes in the pigment of the skin resulting in benign pigmented (melanocytic) lesions that are usually dark brown to black. In the process of trying to protect us from the sun’s harmful rays, our skin and lips develops excess melanin (pigment). This excess pigment shows up in the form of sun spots, and as we age, our skin thins causing these spots to become more visible. Sun spots may occur anywhere but usually appear on areas of the body that are subject to high sun exposure – the face, shoulders, neck, ears, and back of the hands.
