Home laser hair removal systems have opened up the option to remove body hair via laser to many people who normally would not seek the services of a clinic. It is a relatively advanced method that offers an effective hair removal process with minimal pain and discomfort. All the benefits of being one of the closest things to permanent hair removal can now be had in the comfort of your own home on your time and the repeat sessions and touch ups without the additional cost.
It used to be that the only way to receive laser hair treatment was in a clinic performed by a medical professional. Today that is only true for sensitive areas such as the face and neck. But portable home devices allows everyday people to treat themselves everyday if they so desired. The laser generates heat which destroys the hair follicle at the roots preventing the hair from ever growing back. Some people experience a slight tingle while others have reported a warm sensation during the procedure. But overall it should be a nearly pain free solution compared to shaving, waxing, or plucking.
Now people don’t have to spend the time and effort to research and schedule appointments with a clinic to have minor areas treated with laser. There are a lot of people who like the idea of removing unwanted hairs but limit themselves to temporary solutions because they don’t have the desire to go to a clinic. This home laser machine allows these people to receive the same treatment on their own time whenever they want.
It can cost anything from $1,000 to $3,000 for the entire treatment at a clinic performed by a doctor. This is the approximate total cost of treating a typically sized area while a home device is more affordable costing around $800 to $1,000. Since laser hair removal requires multiple treatments over time to remove most of the hair, a take home device allows the consumer to do the procedure themselves and additional touch ups at no additional cost.
There are numerous reasons why this is such a popular method of hair removal. Typically, users can expect 50% to 80% reduction in hair growth and the results are much longer lasting than any other take home solution out in the market today. The entire treatment is usually once every 2 to 4 weeks for a period of 4 to 8 months. It depends on the amount of hair as well as the size of the hairs and results last one or two years with a touch up treatment required every other year or so.
As long as the device is used properly and manufacturer instructions are followed, home laser hair removal machines are generally regarded as a very safe method of hair removal. The only major problems that can occur are when it is used on dark or tanned skin. As a general safety guidelines buy an FDA approved device, follow instructions and use common sense.
