Frequently Asked Questions – (FAQs)
WHAT IS AN IPL?

The word IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is not a Laser! In simple words, an IPL device generates intense beams of light of various colours (wavelengths). Each wavelength or colour of Light targets various components (chromophores) in the skin. This could be either dark pigment (sun spots, hair follicles), red pigment (blood cells in capillaries) or colourless (water, collagen).

IPL devices therefore are able to treat various skin conditions including skin rejuvenation, hair removal, pigmentation, redness and capillaries. They are Jack Of All Trades but usually not as powerful as Lasers.

WHAT IS A LASER?

The word LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. These are specialised devices which generate a single wavelength (colour) of very high intensity light beam. This light beam is much stronger and more focused than the light beams generated by IPL devices. Different lasers devices emit different colour of light of a single wavelength and therefore each laser device is very specific to the type of skin condition it can treat. Most common treatment options available using Lasers in medicine are:

  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Laser Tattoo Removal
  • Laser Skin Surgery
  • Laser Eye Surgery, to name a few.

WHAT OTHER INFORMATION DO I NEED?
  • Not all Laser and IPL Platforms are the same.
  • Cheap devices, manufactured in Asia have flooded the market in recent years and are being used across most States and Territories of Australia without any serious government regulation restricting their use.
  • As a result there has been a significant rise in “laser salons” staffed with unqualified, non medical operators performing dermatological treatments with these devices. Suboptimal treatment outcomes, serious burns and irreversible scarring are some of the consequences of such practices.
  • Dermatological Lasers are classified into various categories based upon their power output. Class 4 (C4) Laser devices are considered the most powerful and can only be operated by Licensed Medical doctors in most States and Territories of Australia.
  • High end Laser and IPL devices usually cost in excess of $100,000. Manufactured in Europe and the US, such devices are only found in reputable Cosmetic Medical Practices owned and operated by medical doctors. In Australia, these devices can only be sold to Registered Medical Clinics.
Laser and Cosmetic Industry in Australia remains unregulated. Only WA and Queensland have stricter medical Laser use policies in place. This essentially means that pretty much anyone in other States and Territories can buy a laser or IPL device and start offering skin treatments such as Laser tattoo Removal or IPL Hair Removal to general public. Most of the time, people offering these treatments are not even qualified beauty therapists! let alone doctors or nurses. And, to top it up, there is no regulation in place to stop the flow of cheap Chinese manufactured laser and cosmetic machines to flood the Australian market. Dr Ehsan Jadoon.
Anyone who has experienced a dermatological laser or IPL treatment at a non medical practice with suboptimal clinical outcome; we encourage them to contact us for an obligation free consultation. Dr Ehsan Jadoon
