Why Alpha Light Hair Removal is the Superior Choice Compared to Traditional IPL

What is Alpha Light Hair Removal?

Alpha Light Hair Removal technology stands out by delivering energy deeper into the follicles with stable, fast, and gentle light and heat pulses. The use of a 'square' technology ensures safe and stable levels of light and heat, minimizing the risk of burns and maximizing client comfort. The cold treatment head gently rolls on the skin, effectively damaging hair follicles without harming superficial skin. This advanced technology is in contrast to older generation IPL which delivers unstable heat and has a higher risk of burns. Overall, Alpha Light technology offers a more effective, efficient, and comfortable hair removal experience compared to other technologies on the market.

What Makes Alpha Light Hair Removal Different From Traditional IPL Technology?

Alpha Light Hair Removal is a hair removal technology that uses a specific wavelength of light to target hair follicles and destroy them. This technology is considered special compared to old IPL (intense pulsed light) technology for several reasons:

More Effective

Alpha Light Hair Removal is considered more effective than old IPL technology because it can target hair follicles more precisely. This results in better hair reduction results, meaning fewer treatments are needed to achieve the desired outcome. Additionally, because Alpha Light Hair Removal uses a specific wavelength of light that is more selective in targeting hair follicles, it is effective on a wider range of skin types, including darker skin tones that may not be suitable for IPL.


Alpha Light Hair Removal is designed to be gentle on the skin while still providing effective results. One way this is achieved is through the use of a cold treatment head. This specialized head rolls gently over the skin's surface, ensuring that the hair follicles are effectively targeted without causing damage to the superficial layers of the skin.

This cold treatment head works by cooling the skin before and during treatment, which helps reduce discomfort and protect the skin from potential damage. The cold temperature also causes hair follicles to contract, making them more susceptible to laser treatment.

In addition, the square technology used for light and heat delivery ensures that pulses are always maintained at safe and stable levels, reducing the risk of burns and increasing client comfort. By using a gentle and precise approach, Alpha Light Hair Removal ensures that clients can enjoy the benefits of hair removal without the risk of skin damage or discomfort.

Less Painful

Alpha Light Hair Removal uses a lower energy level than old IPL technology, which means the patient experiences less pain and discomfort during the treatment. With old IPL technology, the high energy levels needed to target the hair follicles often caused significant pain, especially for patients with darker skin tones. Alpha Light IPL Hair Removal’s lower energy level makes it a more comfortable hair removal option for all skin types.

Alpha Light Hair Removal technology uses a stable and fast delivery of light and heat, which ensures that every shot is effective yet almost painless. This means that clients can experience a comfortable and quick treatment session without enduring the discomfort that can sometimes be associated with hair removal procedures.

In addition to our gentle cold treatment head, the precise and controlled delivery of light and heat allows minimal discomfort during the procedure. Our technicians are also trained to monitor the client's comfort level and adjust the treatment as needed to ensure a comfortable experience.

More Targeted

Alpha Light Hair Removal uses a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, allowing for more precise targeting of the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. This is because the specific wavelength of light used in Alpha Light Hair Removal is more selective in targeting the hair follicles than older IPL technology, which uses a broader range of wavelengths.

Faster Treatments

Alpha Light Hair Removal has a larger treatment area than old IPL technology, allowing it to treat larger areas of the body more quickly. This is because Alpha Light Hair Removal uses a specialized applicator that emits the light in a specific pattern, allowing for a more comprehensive treatment in a shorter amount of time. As a result, patients can receive full-body treatments in less time than they would with IPL technology.

Is Alpha Light Hair Removal Permanent?

No hair removal technology can promise permanent and completely smooth results. This is because, at any given point, sleeping hair within our skin cannot be treated during its dormant phase. These hairs can only be treated when they become active. However, Alpha Light Technology's ability to deliver energy deeper into the follicles can capture more hair more effectively.

While it is unlikely that a person who has undergone the full course of Alpha Light Hair Removal will experience full regrowth again, achieving hairlessness may require one to two touch-up sessions a year during the 2nd and 3rd years. On average, over 98% hair reduction can be achieved for many years. Hormonal therapy may cause hair to become active, requiring further touch-up sessions.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

Clinical studies have shown that Alpha Light Hair Removal sessions (scheduled once a month) can result in hair reduction. However, it's important to continue the treatment as needed, typically every 2 to 3 months, to achieve desired results. Touch-up sessions may be necessary due to the possibility of missed hair during the treatment, especially when they are in their sleeping cycle. At Pink Parlour, we offer 12-month or 24-month treatment programs that bundle the sessions to ensure you can achieve the best possible results.

What Do I Need To Prepare Before Treatment?

To prepare for laser hair removal, there are several things you need to do before your treatment:

  • Do not wax or pluck the treatment area for at least six weeks before the treatment date. You may shave during this period.

  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure, artificial tanning creams, sprays, or tanning beds for at least two weeks before the treatment.

  • Refrain from applying makeup, skincare products, or perfume on the day of the procedure. Treated areas should be free of chemical products.

  • Shave the treatment area one or two days before each treatment to allow the laser light energy to reach the hair follicles without any hair interference. If necessary, your esthetician can shave you for an extra fee on the day of your appointment.

  • Do not bleach the treatment area for two weeks before each treatment.

  • Avoid using any active ingredients in the treatment area for 5-7 days before the treatment.

Popular Areas For Alpha Light Hair Removal

Alpha Light Hair Removal is a versatile treatment that can be used on almost every body part except the eyelids and surrounding areas. While individual preferences may vary, the most frequently requested treatment areas include the legs, face, arms, underarms, bikini area, chest, back, and shoulders. The laser light pulses can be targeted to even the most difficult-to-reach parts of the body, offering a comprehensive hair removal solution.

What Should You Expect After Alpha Light Hair Removal Treatment?

After the laser hair removal treatment, you may still see some hair present, but it will start to fall out in the hours and days following the procedure. It's important to note that the laser treatment doesn't physically remove individual hairs but damages the follicles to prevent future growth. It's crucial to avoid trying to speed up this process by scrubbing the treated area or plucking individual hairs.

If you experience discomfort, you may apply an ice pack to the treated area. Avoid scrubbing the treated area, and apply sunscreen for the next two weeks to avoid direct sunlight exposure to the treated area. If any blisters or scabs develop, contact us immediately.
