At-home Laser Hair Removal

 

Hi and thank you for your question! In order for a treatment to be considered safe for in-home use, it should deliver a very low energy level. In contrast, lasers we use in the clinic are very powerful and require extensive training and can be operated only by qualified clinicians. There is often a direct relationship between the energy level delivered and the effectiveness of the treatment and hence, at-home treatments are generally far less effective (and at times, hardly effective at all) compared with FDA-cleared medical lasers and alike. I hope it helps and good luck!
