In the heart of winter, you’re probably more interested in protecting your skin from the cold than showing it off, but, whether we like it or not, getting rid of unwanted body hair is a year-round challenge. Compared to the alternatives, laser hair removal offers a number of advantages. If you wanted to get a laser treatment in years past, you had to head to your neighborhood spa, but, with advances in technology, many people are finding that they can get a spa-quality laser hair removal treatment in the privacy of their own homes.
If you have any doubt about how popular at-home laser hair removal has become in recent years, simply do a search on Google. Currently, there are dozens of products already on the market, and as laser technology continues to become more advanced, more products are going to emerge, and at-home laser treatments will continue to grow in popularity.
At present, the laser hair removal devices that are available range in price from around a hundred dollars to several hundred dollars. Some of the top sellers include the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X, the Remington IPL6000 iLight Pro Plus Quartz and the Bellalite Hair Removal System by Silk’n. Unfortunately, when it comes to laser hair removal devices, a high price tag doesn’t guarantee that the device will be effective. In fact, different products work better for different people. So a little trial and error may be necessary before you find a device that works perfectly for you.
If you’re going to try at-home laser hair removal, there are a few suggestions that you should keep in mind. For starters, be aware that most devices have limitations that prevent them from being effective with certain combinations of hair and skin tone, and the majority of devices work best on light skin and dark hair. Additionally, you shouldn’t undergo waxing treatment if you’re using a laser device. Waxing pulls the hair out at the root, and in order for a laser treatment to work, the root needs to be present. And finally, the thicker the hair you’re trying to treat, the quicker you will see results. So if you’re trying to use a laser treatment on fine hair, you’ll need to be patient.
If you’re tired of waxing or shaving, it may be time to give laser hair removal a try. Just remember to carefully follow the instructions for your specific device in order to avoid complications and ensure the treatment is successful.
