The evaluation found no significant difference in short-term efficacy, but diode laser hair removal machine treatment had a higher incidence of side effects. The hair loss after 6 months was reported as 68.75% for the deformed diamond laser, 71.71% for the diode laser, and 66.96% for the IPL. The side effect of the Alexandrite laser is 9.5%, diode laser is 28.9%, and IPL is 15.3%. All side effects were found to be temporary and even within 6 months the change in pigmentation returned to normal.
Although IPL does not contain laser technology, it is sometimes mistakenly referred to as “laser hair removal.” IPL-based methods, sometimes referred to as “photolysis” or “photoresist,” use Xenon flash lamps that emit full spectrum light. IPL systems typically output wavelengths between 400 nm and 1200 nm. Filters are used to block shorter wavelengths, so longer “redder” wavelengths are only used in clinical applications. IPL has certain advantages over lasers, mainly pulse duration. The laser can output short bursts to simulate longer pulses, while the IPL system can generate pulse widths up to 250 ms, which is useful for larger diameter targets. At present, some IPL systems have been shown to be more successful in removing hair and blood vessels than many lasers.
Compared with electrolysis
Electrolysis is another method of hair removal that has been used for more than 135 years. With the correct use and multiple treatments like the new laser technology, electrolysis can be used to remove 100% of hair from one area and is effective for all colors of hair if used with adequate technology at a sufficient power level. However, treatment is very slow and tedious compared to typical new laser hair. Based on individual hormone levels or changes therein, and the genetic predisposition of one’s growing new hair, certain areas that are prone to hormone-induced growth, such as the female’s chin and neck, will grow more hair.
A 2000 study conducted at the ASVAK Laser Center in Ankara, Turkey compared the results of diode laser hair removal machine and electrolysis in 12 patients. The results showed that laser hair removal was 60 times faster than electrolysis, with less pain and more reliable. It is important to note that the type of electrolysis performed in the study was electrolytic electrolysis instead of pyrolysis or a mixture of both. The current flow takes 30 seconds to more than a minute to release each hair, whereas the pyrolysis or mixture may require much less. Therefore this study did not test all forms of modern electrolysis.
Compared with shaving
Shaving is a technique that uses a razor to remove hair from the body surface. Shaving requires shaving and is a way of hair removal in a short period of time.
Shave is a very popular technique. Jean Jacques Perret was the first person to invent a safety razor in 1762. Before he appeared, people were asked to go to the hairdresser to shave because they were the only ones with tools. His razor kit consists of a wooden shield and must be mounted on a straight razor. Shortly after 1895, a man named King C Gillette invented a sharp, thin, disposable, and cheap razor. This razor is very popular and has now been modified to look like today.
Compared with waxing
Waxing is another option for hair removal. This method is an effective way to remove hair in a semi-permanent period of time. Ancient Egyptians developed this so-called sugar mechanism in which oil and honey were mixed and applied to the skin.
With the development of waxing, there are two ways to wax. One of them, the bar is ready for use and can be applied to the skin and peeled off in the opposite direction to the hair growth. The other involves heating the wax, applying it to the skin, then placing a cloth and detaching it from the hair.
