At NovaDerm we insist on the very best technology to achieve perfect results for our clients, so we only carry out Laser Removal treatments. Some less reputable clinics use IPL as the equipment is far cheaper than a laser, but laser is much quicker, much more effective and more permanent.
At NovaDerm our lasers are continuously maintained by our very own team of laser engineers and our laser treatments are carried out by a highly qualified and experienced team of practitioners.
Laser vs IPL
A laser is an intensely concentrated beam of light. The energy is extremely focused rather than diffuse so it is very precise, offering more powerful, accurate results. During an initial consultation we carefully tune the laser to your individual skin and hair type, ensuring the best possible results on all skin shades and types.
In basic terms, IPL is far less effective than Laser Hair Removal. The energy is produced by a lamp, a little like a light bulb, and produces a variety of light waves, meaning that it is more diffuse and less powerful. It is usually limited to use on fairer skin types.
