Are you fed up with constantly having to pluck, shave, wax, and thread unwanted facial hair? If so, it’s time to consider laser hair removal. One of the most common procedures, laser treatments offer a reduction of unwanted facial hair.

It’s a quick procedure with very little discomfort, but with more laser hair removal systems entering the market for home use, you may be wondering about the pros and cons of home treatments over professional laser treatments.

Let’s take a look at why laser hair removal is more beneficial than at home options.

The Results

The FDA has approved laser hair removal as a solution to permanent hair reduction. Not to be confused with permanent hair removal, there will be regrowth, which means you’ll need follow up treatments.

Home devices operate at a far lower intensity compared to professional devices. That means that home hair removal options aren’t as successful at disabling the hair follicles compared to professional treatments.

So, professional laser hair removal will give you better results when it comes to the density of your regrowth and the length of time between treatments. This isn’t to say that home hair removal options aren’t effective, but you need to put in a lot more time to achieve the desired results.

Faster and More Effective

You can’t hide your facial hair under clothing like other areas of your body, often resulting in insecurities and self-consciousness. With professional laser hair removal treatments, you can get rid of unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Facial areas are small, so treating, for example, the eyebrows or chin takes about 15 minutes and you’ll need 4 to 8 treatments spread a month apart.

Since home treatments aren’t as effective, you’ll likely need more treatments more often, and that’s a big investment in time.

Skilled Professionals

When you book a professional laser hair removal treatment, a skilled laser operative will devise the best plan for you. You’ll also get the latest laser technology and advanced configurations for different hair color combinations and skin colors.

The professional machinery’s high power can destroy key areas of facial hair in one session. Home devices work at a slower rate and might not be powerful enough for your particular hair or skin color.

Overall, professional laser hair removal is faster and more effective than at home facial hair removal options.
