Pros and Cons of At-Home Laser Hair Removal Systems

Getting rid of unwanted body hair can be time-consuming, expensive, and even physically painful. At-home laser hair removal systems are an attractive solution for many because they provide many benefits that professional treatments do not, but there are also a few things to be aware of before purchasing an at-home hair removal system.

Please take the time to review our list of pros and cons before making your decision, or browse The Youth Fountain website to learn more about the benefits of professional laser hair removal treatments at our office.

Pros of At-Home Laser Hair Removal Systems

Less expensive. Professional laser hair removal can cost thousands of dollars. At-home laser hair removal systems are generally much more affordable and can be purchased online, at beauty stores, or even at your local Bed Bath & Beyond or Walmart location.

Convenience. The most obvious advantage to an at-home laser hair removal system is convenience. While it’s wonderful to be able to carry out treatments in the comfort of your home and on your own time, you will also need to be disciplined enough to consistently continue your at-home treatments to achieve any substantial results.

More privacy. If you have never experienced laser hair removal treatment, you may be a bit nervous about the whole experience. Using an at-home system gives you the added comfort of privacy, so you can feel comfortable and at-ease while you use your system.

Cons of At-Home Laser Hair Removal Systems

Pain. As with any laser hair removal experience, there will be some pain involved. Unfortunately, at home, you may not have the appropriate skin-soothing solutions for your post-treatment care, whereas a professional would be able to give you tips and guidance on how to care for your skin after treatment, or even provide you with a skin-cooling lotion or serum to apply following your visit.

Lack of experience. Reading the directions that came with your at-home laser hair removal system may not be enough to ensure that you are using the system correctly. A professional will have the necessary knowledge and experience to make sure your skin is properly treated and you get the best results possible.

Only suitable for certain skin tones. Many at-home laser hair removal systems have limitations and will only work on lighter colored skin. Even some professional hair removal systems will not work on darker skin. It’s best to consult with a professional before investing in an at-home laser hair removal system.

Less noticeable results. Unfortunately, at-home laser hair removal systems don’t always provide the same results as professional treatments. Oftentimes, a professional treatment will yield better results in less time.
