How Effective Are At Home Laser Hair Removal Devices?

Home laser hair removal devices may be a nice alternative to have, but they aren’t going to give you the same effective results per session as compared to a medical laser found in a physician’s office. The amount of power required for effective, consistent and reliable laser hair removal cannot be found in systems for home use.

There are several FDA approved lasers for home use, but none of them have enough power to provide permanent results. There is a reason why they don’t achieve the same results. In dermatology world, devices go through a more stringent standard, even with the medical lasers some of them are much more effective than others.

Home laser hair removal devices are good for touching up, after you finish with your laser hair removal at the clinic. Because laser offers hair reduction not permanent removal.  After 2 years there is usually the need to repeat the treatment because some hairs start to grow back.

What is the most important factor to consider when buying home laser machine?

When deciding which at home device to purchase you must consider a skin tone and hair color, because some lasers are only suitable for certain skin tones and hair colors.
