Laser Hair Removal at Home - a Good Idea?  

Laser Hair Removal at Home - a Good Idea?

While there are a number of laser hair removal at home systems on the market today, there is some reservation on the part of healthcare professionals about these products. Here are some things to keep in mind if you have been thinking about purchasing a laser hair removal at home kit.

One of the first considerations has to do with basic hygiene. In order to produce an effective removal of hair from the body, it is important to not only remove the hair, but also kill the root. If this is not done properly, there is an increased risk of infection. Laser hair removal that takes place in the controlled environment of a professional setting is far superior to most home environments, when it comes to hygiene. While laser hair removal at home may be convenient, it is often not the best option in terms of health maintenance.

Second, the use of a laser hair removal at home system assumes the individual possesses the basic skills required to use the system. Most people are not quite as steady and sure with the hands as required to do the detailed task of laser hair removal. This can lead to mistakes that could scar the texture of the skin. While accidents do happen in professional laser hair removal procedures, they are far fewer in numbers. If you do not have a steady hand and a firm grasp of what you are doing, then going with a professional is a much better option.

Last, not all home systems are as effective as professional hair removal. This means that you may have to repeat the process several times before you have the desired result. The cost of repeated home sessions could actually exceed the price of having the job done professionally. From an economic perspective, the home systems may not be the most cost effective option.
