Professional Laser Hair removal Versus Home Use Machines
There are laser hair removal machines that you can buy to use at home. They typically cost between £200 and £400, so why would you want to pay more than this for a course of professional treatments?
Laser hair removal machines will only work on the areas they have been applied to and it is very difficult to ensure you treat all areas of the skin evenly, resulting in uneven hair growth.
Home laser hair removal machines are far less powerful which means you will need to give yourself regular treatments, to maintain the results.
The level of pain caused during treatment with a home laser hair removal machine is higher than with professional machines, making treatments unpleasant as well as taking longer.
The risk of burning your skin is increased when using a home laser hair removal machine, especially if you have blonde or red hair or darker skin.
