Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market. It’s an effective option for prolonged and sometimes permanent hair removal. This safe, non-invasive procedure uses laser technology to infiltrate and disrupt the hair follicles, thereby suppressing and sometimes permanently halting hair re-growth.
With millions of people opting to try laser hair removal, it’s not surprising that there are now laser hair removal devices available for purchase for at home use. Before deciding to try your own hand at this procedure using a department store product, consider that there are risks involved. At-home users have not been trained and are not experienced in performing this procedure. Besides that, in order to be able to sell these products to the public, the power of the device must be dramatically reduced, making them far less effective than a medical laser.
On the other hand, having the procedure done by a professional with a medical laser device offers a host of benefits you won’t get with an at-home device.
- The technique is gentle and involves minimal discomfort or pain
- Larger areas can be treated during each procedure, because the technician can remove patches of hair, instead of strand by strand.
- The procedure is more powerful and effective at permanently removing hair
- Burns or blisters can be avoided
- No downtime
- The lasers can be adjusted to accommodate different types of skin
With at-home hair removal devices, the results aren’t the same and there are more risks involved, particularly for those with dark skin. A med-spa technician will choose an appropriate laser with the correct wavelength to safely treat any color of skin. When done properly, the laser beam will only destroy the melanin in the hair follicle and avoid damaging the skin. Only a professional will have the skill for these special circumstances, so they can lessen the risk of side-effects or blisters on the skin.
To ensure a safe and effective treatment, make an appointment with a licensed professional at a med spa. The trained professionals at Advanced Skin Fitness use medical grade laser hair removal devices and will advise you on how to maintain your treatments.
