Our favorite dermatologist Josh Zeichner, MD, concludes “at-home lasers is a safe alternative. “Lasers work by emitting a beam of light that is absorbed by a specific target in the skin,” Dr. Zeichner explains. “In this case, the light is absorbed by pigment in the hair follicle to heat it up and destroy it, so the hair does not grow back. At-home devices work similarly to professional treatments but use slightly lower energy levels.”
Salons are time consuming and are very expensive, costing $400-$800 per session totaling $2500-$5000 for permanent results. Our favorite choice only costs $179 and does the same job in the comfort of your home.
