Less Pain, Equal Gain in Diode vs. IPL Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal

Patients who took part in a split-leg study comparing laser hair removal results using a low-fluence diode laser and high-fluence IPL device reported less pain with the diode-treated leg and equal results in terms of efficacy between the two modalities. The study, which appeared in the Autralasian Journal of Dermatology (August 2012), followed 30 Asian patients with dark hair and skin types III to IV. Subjects underwent three hair removal sessions at six week and eight week intervals.
