Modern technology and precision micro-electronics have combined to produce Personal Laser Hair Removal. Used in the privacy of your home, woman say it is the answer to their dream of fast, easy and permanent hair removal. The personal laser works exactly like those used by your physician but at a fraction of the cost.
Before the introduction of the hand-held laser, you would make between 5 and 10 visits to your doctor at an average cost of $350 per visit. The total cost for permanent hair removal could literally cost you thousands of dollars. Keep in mind, this is the cost for only one area of the body. If you wanted to remove hair from 2 or more areas, you would double this price.
When you purchase a hand held laser hair remover, it belongs to you. You can use it as often as you like anywhere you like. No more making and keeping appointments or wasting time waiting at your doctors office. You are in total control of your treatment schedule. Think about it, you could remove hair from several areas of your body at one time with no additional cost!
How Do Lasers Work?
Just like the large unit your doctor uses, personal hair removers rely on a diode laser to send a high intensity pulse of light through the skin to the hair follicle. Repeated applications eventually kill the follicle resulting in permanent hair removal. The only caveat about home laser hair removers is that your skin tone cannot be too dark or your hair color too light. The laser acts on the pigment in the hair follicle. If your skin tone is too dark, the laser may not penetrate the skin and could actually cause a "sunburn" type skin reaction. In this case, you would adjust the laser to best suit your skin type. You could also try theNo No Hair Remover (8000 & 8800) that uses Thermicon Heat Technology or the Silk n SensEpil that uses IPL. Thermicon is a heat transferring micro filament and IPL uses high intensity light as opposed to a laser.
What Are The Side Effects?
Although very uncommon, skin tingling, described as resembling a "mild sunburn", may occur in some cases. Fortunately, all of today's laser hair removers are adjustable so you can set them for your specific skin type. If you follow the instructions included with your system, you will experience little to no discomfort especially with No No Hair Removal.
Is Hair Removal Permanent?
Yes! The treatments are permanent. Those with light skin and dark hair will show results sooner than those with dark skin and light hair but all skin types will enjoy permanent hair removal. As a matter of fact, most user are pleasantly surprised at how easy and painless at home hair removal actually is.
