Hair removal is something that people spend a surprising amount of time and money on. When all the necessary tools are added up, the average person can spend hundreds of dollars every year on shaving. Not to mention that each time you shave it takes at least 10 to 20 minutes. It is understandable that people may look for more permanent hair removal solutions. When considering options, people often wonder: do at-home laser hair removal devices work?
At-home laser hair removal devices are often hundreds of dollars and allow people to perform laser hair removal at home. Do these devices work? The short answer is no. While some of these devices may provide some results, they often do not provide the same results that professional laser hair removal can.
When a master esthetician performs laser hair removal, they customize the settings to your skin type, hair color, and hair type. This allows them to personalize your laser hair removal in a way that is not possible with at-home devices.
At-home laser hair removal devices also come with more risk because when lasers are used incorrectly or in excess, they can cause hyperpigmentation and burns. Our master estheticians know the correct ways to perform laser hair removal to reduce risk.
