There are numerous advantages to having a laser hair removal product available for consumers to take home and treat themselves. Laser hair removal is one of the most effective methods of hair removal in terms of permanence and is very safe when used properly. Now anyone can take the laser machine home and apply the treatment to themselves as many times as necessary without having to pay for multiple sessions at a clinic.
The technique of using a laser to prevent hair from re-growing has been around for many years now. It works by targeting the root of the hair follicle and heating it with a laser until the hair is damaged and stops growing. It is much more effective than temporary solutions like shaving or waxing and much less painful than electrolysis which uses needles to send electric charges to damage the root of the hair.
A home laser hair removal machine saves people from having to spend time and effort in scheduling a visit to the clinic. Most people are too busy to make the appointment and do the necessary research, but now they have the ability to buy a product that allows them to receive the same treatment on their own time.
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.
These products are quite effective and typically reduce hair by 50-80% when used properly. The results typically last over a year and touch ups are only needed about every other year. Of course to get optimal results would require regular treatment every 2 to 4 weeks for approximately 4 to 8 months and depends on the individual.
