Laser and IPL hair removal carried out in a professional clinic can cost hundreds of dollars per session and considering you will need several sessions to treat just one area, this can equate to thousands of dollars. Fortunately nowadays there are a lot of quality home laser and IPL hair removal products available at a fraction of the cost of professional treatments where you can achieve just as good results in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
The laser and IPL hair removal home kits are generally only effective for darker hair and lighter skin so if you have white, grey, blonde or red hair and a darker skin tone then it may be best to go to a professional laser hair removal clinic that has more advanced technology and offers different lasers so that you can find one that’s most suitable for your skin tone and hair color or you might have to use an alternative method of hair removal.
Below you’ll find the best home laser and IPL hair removal kits currently available that are all FDA approved and will give you silky smooth skin from head to toe.
