The costs of laser hair removal are still quite high, even if they have declined in recent years, to avoid paying hundreds of dollars, even thousands, some people have turned to domestic machines for laser hair removal.
Not all laser hair removal machines are approved by the FDA, but some are, and if you are considering buying one, you must choose an approved one.
The most important reason to choose a homemade laser hair removal machine approved by the FDA is safety. This does not mean that others are not safe, but it is guaranteed that the approved machines will be safe.
While government approval is a boost for manufacturers in terms of safety, it must be recognized that the government does not say that the use of one of these devices will result in permanent hair removal.
As usual, there is a small double talk about that. Even in clinics, laser hair removal is considered “permanent.” This means that, for all purposes, the expected hair will disappear, but from time to time some hairs that were not present at the time of treatment may grow. These will be few and rare. You can have retouch sessions every two years or when necessary, which rarely would be.
Household laser hair removal machine will work in the same way. Retouching sessions will be needed, from time to time, but you will not have to do treatments as you did for the initial extraction, every 4 or 5 weeks.
Are domestic machines the same as those used by doctors in clinics? Certainly not. A disadvantage of the use of a domestic machine is that it is not usable by all skin types. They work best in people with clear skin and dark hair. People with lighter hair can use them, but the results will take longer. People with dark skin should not use homemade laser hair removal machines, as skin burns may occur and manufacturers of these machines do not recommend it. If you have dark skin at this time, the only option open is to go to a clinic to be done safely.
