Most of us want gorgeous long luscious locks of hair but body hair is an entirely different matter. Shaving only gets rid of hair on a temporary basis and it often grows back even thicker than before. Not to mention all of the the areas where unwanted hair can grow such as on the upper lip area, fingers and arms. Home laser hair removal sounds almost too good to be true but fortunately it does actually work.
Save Big Bucks With Home Laser Hair Removal.
Today’s home laser hair removal machines utilize the exact same technology used at professional hair removal clinics at just a fraction of the cost. One professional treatment can cost upwards of several hundreds of dollars; the same price as one hair removal device which you can use over and over again.
Keep in mind that numerous and consistent treatments are needed for the desired results which can end up costing thousands of dollars if you decide to go the professional route. Another advantage of home laser hair removal is that it’s quick and easy. It generally only takes a few minutes to treat a smaller area and it’s a lot more convenient to be able to treat yourself any time you wish in the comfort of your own home.
Breaking Down The Costs
The Tria laser is the most expensive device currently on the market and it boasts state-of-the-art diode technology which is considered the most groundbreaking when it comes to hair removal. Diode lasers are able to target and destroy the hair follicle with the utmost precision. One pro of the Tria laser is that it does not require any cartridge replacements as with many of the more affordable machines. As a result the Tria may actually end up saving you money over the long run despite the initial expense. One con is that the Tria does need to be charged between uses which can be time consuming since it may run out of a charge if you are treating large areas.
There are a large number of more affordable IPL machines on the market including Silk’n Flash & Go, Me Smooth by Tanda and various Remington hair removal machines. Many consumers have achieved more than satisfactory results and permanent hair removal with IPL machines even though diode laser machines are generally considered superior.
Individual Results May Vary
Results will vary depending on your skin tone and adherence to the guidelines. Pretty much all of the home laser hair removal machines will require you to shave prior to treatment. If there is any hair present on the skin’s surface, the machine won’t be able to target and destroy the hair follicle. Most machines also require you to stick to a treatment plan which may be every week or every two weeks. For the fastest results it’s recommended to use the highest treatment setting that you can tolerate (for example, the Silk’n Flahs & Go offers 5 treatment levels). Those with sensitive skin may find the higher treatment levels uncomfortable or even painful. A numbing cream can be used prior to treatment if desired.
