Are home-use laser hair removal devices really worth it?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular choices for those wishing to permanently reduce unwanted and excess hair from the face and body. There is a belief however, that in-clinic treatments are largely for those with stacks of cash and alternative home-use devices are now popping up on social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook.

The thought that laser hair removal is too expensive and inaccessible to the majority of us is a bit of a myth and here’s why… the average woman will spend over £12,000 in her lifetime on temporary solutions to unwanted fuzz which she will need to repeat over and over again.

With this in mind, laser hair removal comes in at a fraction of this cost and can be permanent by means of results, so potentially, one course of treatment could be all you need to get rid of your unwanted hair, for good.

If you’re still tempted to go for an at-home-use device, there are several things to consider which may prove worrying. Hand-held, domestic devices are not going to have anywhere near the power, controllability or efficacy for removing hair in a controlled and stable way.

Many devices are produced in China where there is no legal liability. Therefore, if the device ends up causing harm or damage, then there is no come-back for the consumer.

We also have to consider that the user at home has had no formal training or education on how to treat the skin with laser or to ascertain if there are any contraindications which may mean that laser hair removal would not be recommended for that individual. This is by no means the consumer’s fault, but cheap at-home use devices aren’t going to be a replacement for a medical-grade, proven laser device which has cost a specialist clinic many thousands of pounds. Nor will it replace the expertise that a consumer would receive at a specialist clinic.
