Laser Hair Removal at Home
Laser hair removal at home has become an increasingly attractive, effective, and affordable option for those who can’t or don’t want to go to a clinic for expensive treatment processes. Home laser hair removal devices are easy to use, pain-free, and often quite cheap, especially when compared to clinic laser treatments. Some of the best home laser hair removal products are the Silk’n Sens Epil and the TRIA Beauty Home Laser Hair Removal Device.
Silk’n Sens Epil
The slightly more expensive option, the Silk’n Sens Epil is also the larger and the noisier of the two. Despite these slight disadvantages, it is also, however, the faster of the two. Its larger size means that its treatment head is larger. This fact alone allows treatment times to be about half of the times of other mainstream devices. Also possibly because of the larger head, many users report that their results come faster when using the Silk’n Sens Epil. Many report that their hair is noticeably diminished after only three months of using this device, as opposed to the six to eight months generally required by other devices.
This device uses a technology known as Home Pulsed Light Technology, which has performed extremely well in long term hair removal tests. The lamp cartridge found in the Silk’n Sens Epil will last for about the time it takes to perform one full body treatment, after which it must be replaced.
TRIA Beauty Home Laser Hair Removal Device
This device is smaller and cheaper than the previous one and is easily the most affordable home option for laser hair removal. Like the previous device, it is approved by the FDA and will have the same results as performing a hair removal treatment in a clinic.
When using the TRIA, you will feel a slight sensation of heat on the surface of your body where the device is being used. Even when set to the highest setting this feeling is never uncomfortable. It is usually, in fact, quite pleasant. Hair will be considerably lessened after only three or four months of use and will completely disappear after around six months of use. This device is known for being quiet and has a very low noise threshold.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Home Laser Hair Removal
The greatest advantage to buying a home laser hair removal machine is the cost. Your entire home laser hair removal set will generally cost you about the same as a single laser removal treatment at a clinic. Due to the fact that laser hair removal usually involves taking several treatments over the clinicce of six to eight months, the money that you will save on treatments can often number into the thousands of dollars.
Another advantage is the time you will save by performing these treatments in your own home instead of scheduling a clinic appointment. Home treatments can be done at your leisure, whenever you have time. You don’t have to rely on someone else’s busy scheduling book and structure your entire day around a laser hair removal appointment at a clinic. Home laser hair removal treatments can be done early in the morning, late at night, on the weekends, or whenever you have a block of free time. It’s completely up to you because with home laser hair removal, you are your own surgeon.
One disadvantage of performing this procedure at home is the lack of experience that most regular people have with laser hair removal. clinics offer a great degree of professionalism and expertise to their clients and if a calm, professional atmosphere means a lot to you, home laser hair removal may not be right for you.
Home laser hair removal is generally the same procedure as clinic laser hair removal. The equipment works by spotting the contrast that the darker hair poses against your lighter skin and will usually not work with excessively blond hair. Just like laser hair removal systems found at clinics, home laser hair removal equipment comes with an array of safety features to make sure that the process is a secure, painless one. The process, however, can be quite repetitive and can generally take a while, even at home, so have patience.
