Laser Hair Removal: What Makes A Good Machine

We dive into some of the main factors we could use to judge laser hair removal technology...

The answer to this question has been part of plenty of debates in the cosmetic and aesthetic industry. The best course of action is to take into consideration the main factors to judge technology:

1. How effective is it?

  • Is the laser efficiently removing all hair? If not, then the technology is void
  • Effectiveness can also be reduced if the person who conducts the treatment is not well trained

2. Is it painful?

  • There is something we can all agree on. Nobody likes pain. Although some sort of discomfort is expected when hair is removed from sensitive areas, if the laser you’re using is not the best quality, your pain could increase
  • The most popular laser hair removal is the one that uses a cooling mechanism that allows the skin to cool down when sensitive areas are treated
  • The Soprano ICE is one example of technology that uses a cooling mechanism. It offers 3 wavelengths in order to reduce discomfort.

3. Skin colour

  • Some laser hair removal machines can experience some difficulty when it comes to detecting hair follicles at their growth stage when the skin is dark or fair and it matches the hair.
  • There are plenty of clinics that offer more than one technology in order to deal with a variety of skin types.

4. Number of sessions required

  • This is a difficult factor to take into consideration as it all depends on the person treated. Someone who has little hair will require fewer sessions than someone with more hair.
  • In general, great results will be reached between 6 to 12 sessions

Overall, it is not very easy to decide which is the best laser hair removal technology because it all depends on the individual who undergoes this process, as other factors need to be taken into consideration such as skin colour and the amount of hair you want to remove.

    Thanks Jamie, the machines can really affect the end result as the newest technologies tend to be more powerful and effective for a range of skin types.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I had not discovered any better article than yours.
    It is very informative for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet would be much more helpful.

    As a result of their hard work, all these companies machines have greatly evolved over the years. It used to be so difficult to remove hair before, but now with some of the machines like soprano ice, permanenent laser hair removal is possible.
