Laser Hair Removal - At Home or at a Skin Care Clinic?

March 10, 2017

With spring practically around the corner, it could be said that “hair removal time” has also come around. And like it or not, the average woman does spend time and money making every effort to remove body hair. Today, there are even products on the market that offer effective hair removal at home. Some will actually use the word “professional" in their marketing, and will highlight the substantial savings of doing laser hair removal at home. The bigger question is if it’s worthwhile.

The idea of permanent hair removal is quite attractive. The idea that it’s done for the long term is even more attractive. Without doubt, it can be a costly procedure when it’s done right and under the supervision of a professional. In fact, for the very best results, a number of treatments would be required. So it’s no wonder that home devices have arrived on the market, and at price points that seem tempting. Once again, the big question arises – is it really worthwhile trying it out?

With a home unit, you don’t have to be a technologist – however, the instructions have to be well understood, the dos and don’ts have to be addressed, and the risks must be noted. There are also some important “contraindications” – not to be used if moles are present. The good news is that home units have built in safety features, which are designed to prevent inadvertent injuries. Since there is a potential for accidents, this is a very good feature.

None of the home unit manufacturers “overpromise” their results. Indeed, most recommend that home treatments be adjunctive to other hair removal procedures, whatever they might be. But unless everything is perfect and the conditions are just right, laser hair removal at home leaves a lot to be desired. In the end, what’s the purpose of a treatment if there’s additional hair removal that must be performed? Overall, the best approach, and the most cost effective is a clinic visit.

A well-established skin care clinic will most assuredly offer patients a high standard of service – with laser technicians who are trained and experienced. Laser hair removal is performed in an environment that is safe, clean, and sterile. Best of all, clinic professionals can offer expert advice on the best treatment options and the best quality skin products. True enough, a skin care clinic is going to be more costly than an amateur home treatment, but results will show the benefits.
