At-Home VS. Professional Laser Hair Removal: What To Choose
The growing popularity and adoption of laser hair removal worldwide has made way for the production of at-home laser devices – designed under the same premises; albeit being able to do it in the comfort of your own home.
While both of them work under the same principle; targeting the dark melanin pigment in your hair follicles to effectively destroy it – there are still various differences between the two.
Below is a quick comparison to help you decide which is the best option for you!
The power of the machine
Nothing beats getting hair removal done at a salon, especially since you will be getting the latest laser technology with advanced, customizable configurations.
The biggest con of at-home laser devices is that it hard to find a device that suits you to a tee – and even so, majority of them are set at a significantly lower power than those used in professional clinics. This means that you will probably see slower results, and more consistency is required in order maintain your results as well.
At Datsumo Labo, our sophisticated SHR machines work with every skin type, and is a clear upgrade from the conventional IPL hair removal or D.I.Y. methods, which may not be suitable for those with darker skin.
The person who operates it
Being able to successfully operate a laser hair removal device is not easy, which is why all our specialists have to first undergo training before being able to work with customers.
Since at-home devices require you to operate the technology by yourself, and also requires you to bend and twist in awkward positions in order to reach certain areas – things can quickly become tricky when it comes to Brazilian hair removal.
With the help of a professional, you can ensure you never miss a spot, cut down on treatment times and avoid accidentally burning yourself.
The safety and success of your treatment is also highly dependent on how close you follow instructions when using an at-home device – so make sure to first undergo a patch test before you start zapping away.
While at-home devices are more affordable – the results that you get doing it with a professional is well-worth the extra dollars.
Even if you are on a tight budget, not to worry! At Datsumo Labo, we offer exciting monthly promotions and packages that are designed to fit your needs. If you plan to be hair-free from top-to-toe, we highly recommend signing up for a package in order to save more!
Which is better?
In short, professional hair removal gives you the fastest, longest-lasting hair reduction results, while at-home devices results require regular maintenance and more time in order to achieve the same.
Both are relatively safe procedures, as long as you take the right precautions before, during and after. If you prefer to let someone else do all the hard work while you simply wait for the results – then going professional will not disappoint!
This is not to say that you should completely forget about at-home laser devices – you can choose to invest in one specially for getting rid of those stray hairs that pop up from time to time.
