Why is Professional Laser Hair Removal Superior to At-Home?

Recently, laser hair removal has become a popular method for removing unwanted hair. While many at-home laser hair removal devices are available, many people still prefer to seek professional treatments.

Why Choose Professional Over At-Home Laser Hair Removal?

There are many reasons why professional laser hair removal is better than an at-home version. Professional devices are of higher quality, and treatments are performed by trained professionals who adhere to strict safety standards. Professional treatments are also more convenient and dependable and can be more cost-effective. While at-home devices may seem cheaper, they tend to deliver inferior results and can be risky if misused.

Here is a breakdown of why you should choose professional over at-home laser hair removal.

Higher Quality Laser Technology

The machines professionals use are more powerful, precise and have more features. As a result, they can provide better results in less time and with fewer treatments. On the other hand, at-home devices are generally less powerful and less accurate, which means they may not be as effective and may take longer to achieve the desired results.

Trained Professionals

Trained professionals with extensive training and certification perform clinical laser hair removal treatments. This means they have the knowledge and experience to provide safe and effective treatments. They can also customize treatments based on each individual’s skin type, hair color and other factors. On the other hand, at-home devices are often used by people with no training or experience in laser hair removal. This can lead to ineffective treatments or even injury.

Higher Safety Standards

Laser hair removal treatments at a clinic are subject to strict safety standards, including regulations from the FDA. The machines used in professional settings must meet specific safety requirements, and technicians are trained to use them safely. Unfortunately, at-home devices are not subject to the same safety standards; thus, injuries and burns have been reported.

More Convenient and Efficient

While using an at-home laser hair removal device may seem more convenient, professional treatments can be more efficient in the long run. Professional treatments are typically faster and require fewer sessions to achieve the desired results. At-home devices can be time-consuming and less effective.


Professional laser hair removal treatments can be more cost-effective in the long run. This is because they require fewer sessions and provide better results, so you will ultimately spend less money on hair removal over time. On the other hand, at-home devices usually require more sessions to give (hopefully) the quality of hair removal that is attainable via professional service.
