You’ve heard the acronym, but you may be wondering what it actually means. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and it is a brand new technology used initially by medical practitioners for treatments such as acne treatment or permanent hair removal.
I know that doesn’t quite explain everything you want to know, so let’s get more into it.
How does IPL actually work?
It works as the name suggests, it emits an Intense Pulsed Light (or to us, a flash) that consists of numerous different wavelengths. All IPL lasers come with a cooling agent that ensures that your skin does not burn when this flash is emitted.
IPL’s differ from that of traditional laser hair removal machines as those machines usually only emit at a flash at a single wavelength that is specific to the hair and skin of the area you want to treat. By using various different wavelengths combined into one, you can be sure that the IPL will surely include the skin and hair type that you want to treat.
The end result of the IPL is the same end result of that of a traditional laser hair removal machine and that is to burn the hair follicle to ensure that it doesn’t grow back again. This is the premise behind various different treatments including acne treatment.

The answer to this is quite simple but depends on various factors. Firstly, what type of treatment do you require? Secondly, have you done research into that treatment? Lastly, are you willing to go to a clinic to do this or is it something you would like to do at home? Thankfully, IPL’s are usually the answer to all of these. The only exception would be if you were trying to permanently remove thick and coarse hair and in that case, traditional laser hair removal would be the answer.

Honey Skin’s Study of IPL Costs vs Traditional Laser Hair Removal Costs Table
We at Honey Skin have made it easy for you to decide whether or not you should choose the IPL.
We at Honey Skin decided to do our own study of how much it actually costs for hair removal. We had four volunteers who chose to do four separate treatments with them being:
- Buying the Honey Skin IPL Laser (Intense Pulse Light)
- Traditional Laser Hair Removal at a clinic for Legs
- Traditional Laser Hair Removal at a clinic for Arms
- Traditional Laser Hair Removal at a clinic for the Bikini Line
The results were actually quite staggering!
Traditional Laser Hair Removal ended up costing our volunteers:
- $1250.00 for permanent hair removal of the legs
- $900.00 for permanent hair removal of the arms
- $245.00 for permanent hair removal for the bikini line
The IPL, on the other hand, was a one time cost for $270 (using the code HONEYSKIN at checkout)! This little investment is going to last our volunteer 15+ years! Hard to believe isn't it?
