At The Urban Body Bar we use two types of lasers:
1 - NdYag laser for Asian to the darkest skin shades. Skin types IV to VI
2 - Alexandrite Laser used for Caucasian skin types I to III.

A laser is an intensely concentrated beam of light. The energy is extremely focused (the beam direct straight to the area to be treated) rather than diffused so it is very precise, offering more powerful, accurate results. The NdYag penetrate 5mm into the skin while the Alexandrite penetrates 4mm into the skin. Both lasers go deeper than most lasers and are hence more precise and effective.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. The heat energy is produced by a lamp similar to an ordinary white light. The IPL produces a variety of light waves which diffuses rather than focusing on a certain point. The more the light diffuses the more power is lost. This and the fact that IPLs only penetrate 1mm into the skin making it less effective than lasers. This also heats up the skin and not have any effect on reducing the growth of the hair. IPLs are usually limited to use on fairer skin types.
Due to the fact that a lot of the IPL energy is diffused and lost. Which would mean a greater number of treatments would be required. At The Urban Body Bar we can reach amazing results within 6 treatments.
COMPARING COST OF TREATMENT OF IPL V's LASERS:
IPL's are far cheaper machines then Lasers (usually 1/7th of the cost) however the pricing
for the treatments in most cases do not reflect the difference in price of the machine.
At the Urban Body Bar we believe in the very best technology to achieve optimum results
after each and every treatment.
Potential clients MUST note that this is not IPL . IPL'S are NOT Lasers and there are
differences between them and their performances. Unfortunatly, IPL treatments tend to be
mis-sold as lasers.
Our comprehensive FREE Laser consultation explains the differences,
the effectiveness and the safety elements between each type of laser/IPL device.

Latest in Laser Technology
We have the latest state of the art technology available today. Our Lasers are clinical machines and have the exact wavelength needed to effectively treat the hair in each pulse. We believe in providing laser hair removal using the right lasers for different skin shades as this give optimum results in a minimum number of treatments, which would mean not incurring additional costs for further treatments. One laser machine does not suit all skin shades.
No compromise between speed and efficiency
Our Laser pulses are very short (fast up to 3 milliseconds) so we can provide very fast efficient treatments. Treatment times can vary from 5 mins to 2hrs for full body. For example full legs would only take 35mins to do while underarms takes 5mins. Laser treatments can be done on larger areas, like the legs and back. Full legs can be done in just 30mins with our large laser head size.
Virtually Pain-free and comfortable
Our Laser hair removal is virtually pain-free as they are combined with a cooling system that can be set to a comfortable cold air level that suits you. The cooling system is a totally separate device that clips the laser hand piece and constantly emits cold air, before, during and after the treatments. This minimises the build up of heat on the skin. Post treatments we can further cool the skin using aloe vera gel combined with the cool air. Most clients find this more comfortable than waxing. Don't take our word for it, let us prove it to you in a patch test.
