What is the difference between IPL & Laser?

IPL systems emit a broad range of wavelengths and are simple and very economical to use but cannot be used on all skin types.

Laser systems emit only a specific wavelength and are much more powerful. They are more effective to use as they are more selective to hair follicles, so results are better with laser. They can be used in darker skin types very effectively, safely and comfortably.

We also have a specific laser that is useful for treatment of fine vellous pigmented hair . IPL has no effect on these.

The risk of burns and hyperpigmentation is significantly reduced with laser machines.

All laser safety protocols are followed strictly at Nitai Medical & Cosmetic Centre.

Does it Hurt?

Our laser has an inbuilt cooling head which together with a cooling gel is used during the procedure to minimise pain. The comfort of the client is of utmost concern during the procedure and everything possible is done to maintain a pain-free treatment.

Why are lasers used in hair reduction?

We are able to treat any area of the body safely. It results in a smooth hair free skin. It reduces the inconvenience and pain of waxing therapy and plucking. Research shows over the lifetime, laser therapy actually works out cheaper!

What if my excessive hair is due to a medical condition?

1. Polycystic Ovarian syndrome – In this condition women tend to have acne as well as excessive hair. Laser is very effective for hair reduction but will also treat the acne.

2. Pilonidal sinuses – Laser hair removal is very effective.
