Hi girls and guys,
I have been getting a few questions lately and thought I should write up a quick post to share some common questions and concerns people have about home hair removal:
1. How many treatments will I need for laser hair removal?
Just remember that permanent hair removal is based on targeting hair follicles. Hair follicles all grow at different rates and for different people. There is not one standard ‘treatment’ for laser hair removal. The number of treatments can vary alot between people due to different hair growth stages, different hair colours and different skin colours. However, the average number of treatments for laser hair removal can be between 6-8 for each body part.
2. Is laser hair removal safe?
Yes, all of the machines that I recommend on my site, safelaseripl.com have been FDA cleared and approved as safe hair removal devices to use in your own home. It is important to follow each machines instructions and to ensure that you follow the procedures and preparation for laser hair removal to avoid any side effects or injuries that could be sustained during the treatment.
3. What skin colors can use laser hair removal?
These days all skin colors and hair colors can be treated using laser hair removal machines. The technology has developed so far now that even people with dark skin and dark hair can use laser and IPL hair removal to remove unwanted body hair. Therefore, if you are Indian, Italian, Greek or any nationality that tends to have darker skin tones and dark hair, laser hair removal machines are safe to use.
Here is a quick guide:

4. What is the optimum combination to get the best results from laser?
The optimum results from permanent hair removal whether it being laser or IPL is those people with dark hair and light skin.
5. What is the most popular area of the body for laser hair removal?
There is not real ‘popular’ or ‘safest’ area to use hair removal machines as they are safe and effective for all body parts. From my personal experience, the legs and bikini areas are the most popular as they seem to be the first area most people use home hair removal machines to remove unwanted body hair from first.
6. Are home hair removal machines cost effective?
I can put it more simply, yes! You are forking out between $400-$600 depending on the type of machine that you buy, however, compared to salon prices which can vary between $80-$200 per treatment, you save yourself thousands in permanent hair removal. Plus, the technology used for home hair removal machines is so up to date, the home hair removal devices are yielding nearly the same hair removal results. As a beauty therapist, this is the biggest beauty advice that I can give on this site; investing in a home hair removal machine is not only cost effective but actually work at removing body hair permanently.
