Will Laser Hair Removal Work if IPL Didn’t?

question markOne of the questions asked quite often among those considering laser hair removal is:

Will Laser Hair Removal Work if IPL Didn’t?

Many people try IPL (intense pulsed light) for hair removal for a variety of reasons.

Firstly, many people don’t understand the difference between laser and IPL, yet the two systems are not the same at all. They work in different ways and therefore the results vary too. This is especially the case for clients who have fair hair or tanned/darker skin, because IPL is simply not as effective as laser in these conditions as it looks for a colour contrast. IPL can also be a less comfortable experience than laser and also tends to take more sessions in order to get the results desired. See our guide to IPL vs Laser technology for more information.

Secondly, the price for IPL hair removal is often quite attractive, as the technology is cheaper. The deals and discounts advertised online are very often for IPL rather than laser and this makes it a first port of call for those bargain hunters who are not prepared to pay too much before knowing whether it will work for them.

However, the results from IPL can be disappointing, leaving patients looking for the ‘real thing’ – laser hair removal.

Quinn Clinics based in Bristol regularly sees patients who have had IPL treatment elsewhere and are looking for a better result through laser hair removal treatment.

They offer not one, but two advanced laser hair removal systems. The Syneron Candela Elos Plus and the Lumenis Lightsheer DESIRE. These state of the art systems offer excellent results on small or large areas, face or body, dark skin or light hair.

So in answer to the question “if IPL didn’t work, could laser”, the answer is yes.

Consultations for treatment are free and an excellent opportunity to discuss the results of previous treatment and to see the advanced laser hair removal technology available at Quinn Clinics.  The laser therapist will discuss your personal expectations and suggest a programme designed to address your concerns and give the best possible results.


While many competitors charge for the initial consultation, at Quinn Clinics there is a free consultation to enable patients to find out more without any pressure.
