More about our Laser
Comparing our lasers to IPL
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 our 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, this can mean a greater number of treatments would be required.
Price comparisons between lasers to IPL
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.
