Home Hair Removal System vs. Professional Laser Hair Removal
If you’ve had enough of the endless cycle of shaving and waxing – from the constant upkeep, the irritating bumps, nicks and stubble to the painful treatments – it’s time to achieve the permanent hair removal results you’ve often dreamed about. Laser hair removal can make it happen! One more decision to make – will you go to a professional laser hair removal technician or try home permanent hair removal? Read on to see how the two methods compare.
Part of the appeal of laser hair removal is the time you’ll save time by never having to wax or shave again, so it stands to reason that you’d prefer the quickest treatment possible. Whether you’re seeking professional treatments in the office or opting to use a home hair removal system, you’ll need several sessions to achieve permanent hair removal results. That’s because hair must be in the active growth stage for the laser to disable the follicles. It will take several months to ensure every hair is disabled – with an in-office technician or an at-home treatment. Time wise then, both professional and at-home are tied, unless of course you factor in the time you’ll be spending driving to the office and flipping through magazines in the waiting room versus the time it takes to close your bathroom door. Laser hair removal at home does have a slight time advantage in that sense!
Results & Safety
Both in-office treatments and at-home laser hair removal can deliver the same results – permanent hair removal. If you have darker skin or lighter hair, an at-home hair removal system may not work for you, but a professional laser technician may be able to use a special wave length on your body. While a home hair removal system will contain detailed instructions, some users might feel more comfortable with a trained professional administering treatment, although both methods are considered safe. The Federal Drug Administration regulates the use of laser hair removal. Be sure to check with the manufacturer or laser technician to ensure that the laser you’ve chosen is approved by the FDA. It’s also a good idea to read reviews online before you make a purchase or schedule your appointment. See what others are saying about their own results with specific products or laser hair removal technicians.
Home permanent hair removal is much more cost effective than professional treatments. Why? Because you can repeat laser hair removal treatment on as many body parts as you want. The initial $300 to $500 investment could net you permanent hair removal on your legs, bikini area, arms and underarms all for one upfront cost. Professionals generally charge based on the number of sessions needed to achieve permanent hair removal for each body part. On average, it will cost around $500 (or more) total per treatment area. That would mean you’d spend $500 for your legs, $500 for underarms, $500 for your bikini area, etc.
With either treatment, professional or home, permanent hair removal results are possible! The FDA regulates both methods to ensure their safety, and several treatments are needed either way to achieve permanent results. The biggest factors to consider are your budget and how comfortable you are with an at-home laser hair removal device. If you are nervous about the cost or afraid to try it yourself, read reviews online to see what experiences others have had. You’ll likely find that most individuals consider the at-home treatments to be a breeze and that the cost – professional or at-home – is well worth it!
