What is Laser Treatment

The word laser is an acronym for the expression “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation”. It is a single wavelength, monochromatic light which able to induce specific changes in the skin. Nowadays, laser treatment is considered as an effective solution to treat a number of skin concerns, including pigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkles, skin texture and skin tone.

What is IPL?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It uses a broad spectrum of light with multiple wavelengths to treat different types of skin conditions. Generally, IPL is used to reduce the signs of ageing, sun damage or remove unwanted hair.

The ICON laser system by Cynosure is considered the next generation of light based treatments. The advanced technology is used to deliver the safest and the most effective non-surgical skin treatment. Moreover, ICON device is a multiple wavelength IPL and laser platform that offers treatment options in one system. It can perform a number of functions based on the handpieces that attached to the device.

In EST Clinic, we have different types of handpieces that can be used to target multiple skin conditions.

FAQs

What are the differences between IPL and Laser Treatment?

  • Monochromatic or Polychromatic

Laser is Monochromatic Light. It means the light emitted from a laser is single wavelength.

IPL is Polychromatic Light. It means the light emitted from IPL is a combination of many different wavelengths. Therefore, IPL can target various chromophores in a range of wavelengths.


  • Coherent or Non-coherent

Laser is Coherent Light. It means the light is totally reinforcing and does not cancel itself out because the light produced by laser is made up of waves that have the same wavelength and all in phase.

IPL is Non-coherent Light. It means the light is not reinforcing as the light produced by IPL contains many different wavelengths and phase relations.

  • Collimated or Divergence

Laser is Collimated Light. It means the light beams travel in parallel which make laser light very powerful.

IPL is Divergence Light. It means the light of IPL is not collimated and the light beam does not travel in parallel. Therefore, the light can spread out quickly.
