Laser Hair Removal Reviews – Hair We Go!

laser hair removal reviews

Shaving can really suck – you have to do it over and over again without permanently getting rid of unwanted hair and it can even result in a razor burn. According to statistics, 72 days of a woman’s life are spent shaving.

WHAT? Why do we have to invest so much time into doing something we hate? The truth is: We don’t have to, because (thanks to technology) there are permanent solutions to getting rid of hair… yayyy!

In case you are looking for good laser hair removal reviews, I am going to introduce you to a few at home laser hair removal devices and tell you how they actually work.

How Do Laser Hair Removal Devices Actually Work?

All laser hair removal devices follow the same principle: a beam of light, which is aimed at the hair, causes damage to the hair follicle as the hair roots get damaged. This prevents or slows down the hair growth process.

The hairs contain a pigment called melanin, which absorbs all the light energy. While it absorbs the light, the energy turns into heat energy, which damages the hair by burning it. This is pretty much how you can get rid of unwanted hair – forever! But which laser hair removal devices are worth buying?

Final Thoughts

All the above mentioned devices are safe to use, effective and cause little to no pain. Make sure to read and follow the instructions before using a laser hair removal device and try not to look into the flashes as they are very bright and may cause you some discomfort.

You are sure to be thrilled about the amazing results of these at home laser hair removal devices.

My Mom bought the Philips Lumea New BRI956 Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device for herself, which I used a couple of times. Although I wasn’t able to get rid of every single unwanted hair yet, I’m already amazed by the results and will continue to use it.

Go ahead and try it out yourself. I’m sure you’ll love it!

  1. Hi there,

    I never had to use Laser Hair Removal devices or visit a professional laser treatment center before, and I do not need to. I wasn’t aware that these kind of devices existed. But I would like to ask one thing. My wife says that professional equipment needs about 10 treatments to reduce and even remove hair completely. You state that The Braun Gilette Venus needs only 4 treatments for permanent hair reduction. Hows is that possible?

    Thanks

    Marios

    1. Hi Marios! These devices are really useful, not only because they remove unwanted hair but also because they are way cheaper compared to a professional laser hair removal treatment.

      Actually, it depends on the quality of equipment. I’ve known people who went to a professional laser treatment center several times and haven’t noticed a significant loss of unwanted hair, whereas my Mom for instance only needed about 8 treatments for her legs using the Philips Lumea New BRI956 Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device until she got rid of almost every single unwanted hair. So it really depends on the device that is being used. Hope that helps. All the best, Ruya

  2. Ok well I’m going to have to look into these, I think my money is on Braun Gillette Venus Silk.  I’m sick of shaving my back! (Ew gross I know, it is what it is)  I’ve thought about going to a laser removal place, but it is way too expensive, and time consuming.

    I’d rather just do it myself, in the comforts of my own home. Anybody have any advice on this or another model for guys?

  3. This Laser hair removal review is great and I find this to be a very informative article. My wife has been getting onto me about shaving my chest and I am glad I came across this article, it will save me so time once all the hair is gone permanently. I’m tired of repeating the same procedure and shaving over and over again. Now that I have all the information I need and the tools to get the job done provided by you, I will not be in trouble anymore.

    Thank you for this great review!

    1. Thank you, Quinn! Shaving really is a cumbersome task, so why not choose the easier way, right? I’m glad if I could be of any help. I’m sure your wife will be impressed by the results! All the best, Ruya
