Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a hair removal method that uses a laser to damage hair follicles.

Laser light is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair which creates heat. This heat damages hair folicles in such a way as to inhibit regrowth. Setuko Beauty Clinic uses the Pain-Free Motus AY Laser that can treat all skin colours. It is fast, safe and is extremely effective using gold standard lasers, Alexandrite & Nd Yag.

Laser or IPL?

Which is better, IPL or Laser? The real answer is “it depends on what you want”. There are different types of laser; Alexandrite, NdYAG, Diode, Ruby and IPL. All have certain skin types, hair types and hair size that they excel at. In addition, the quality of the machine, the training of the practitioner and the maintenance of the equipment can have a huge impact on the effect of the treatment.

LASER light is:

This means nearly 100% of laser light is one pure colour.

This means the light is emitted as a relatively narrow beam in a specific direction, making the light very powerful.

This means the light is totally reinforcing and in phase in space and time.

What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light which is a broadband pulsed light source. The lPL emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair like a laser. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

IPL light is:

This means the light has many different colours and a certain percentage of those colours are effective in the treatment of hair removal.

This means the light emitted in many directions away from the source.

This means many different wavelengths and therefore scatters in the skin.
