Can you have laser hair removal at home? The question should be more like – is it safe to have laser hair removal at home? Or is it just the latest fashion craze that sounds fancy but will not give you permanent results? Well, the simple and quickest answer is no. You should never have laser hair removal at home. And here is why.
Can you have laser hair removal at home?
Technically you could. That is if ( with a very big IF) you managed to source a medical laser, obtained a license from your local council and spent years in training to become a fully certified laser and skin practitioner. In that case you can have laser hair removal at home. But my guess is that you haven’t got a laser in your spare room neither you comply with any of the safety and health regulations that are required before your can do laser treatments.
At home laser hair removal devices
I have seen many different devices that are being advertised by well known beauty and electric brands as “ at home laser” hair removal devices, however you can never put these in the same league as you would class a medical grade laser machine , like Cynosure, Candela or Soprano.
Although they are everywhere and super accessible hand-held, domestic devices aren’t going to have anywhere near the power, controllability or efficacy for removing hair in a safe 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, there is no come-back for the consumer.
You 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 be certain whether there are any contraindications. Which means that these machines are definitely not the safest options for you.
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 you would receive at a specialist clinic.
