The Hidden Costs of Cheap Laser Hair Removal

The Hampton Clinic


Imagine a world where you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing? That can be your reality after laser hair removal treatment.

During laser hair removal, we utilise a specialised machine that emits concentrated beams of laser light to eliminate unwanted hair. This works because the laser targets the melanin within the hair follicles to destroy it and prevent further hair growth without any damage to the surrounding skin.

Even though there are many machines available in the market for laser hair removal, not many are safe and effective. Energy-based devices that use light and optic components are highly sensitive and require the highest engineering and manufacturing standards to maintain consistent results and minimise risks.

Knowing which laser hair removal machine your chosen clinic uses matters!

Now, let's address the elephant in the room - the temptation to opt for cheap treatments performed with cheap machines. While it may seem like a cost-effective solution at first, that often comes with many drawbacks. From unsatisfactory results to increased risk of burns and scarring, the potential consequences far outweigh any short-term savings. When it comes to laser hair removal, quality should always come before price.

When you see yourself tempted by the cheapest laser hair removal around, know that they most likely use generic or off-brand machines, cut corners with staff training or compromise on hygiene and safety standards. 

Here are some things to bear in mind when you’re choosing where to go for laser hair removal:

Reputable brands invest in research and development to ensure their machines are safe for use. They comply with stringent safety standards, reducing the risk of adverse effects like burns, scarring or skin damage. Cheap or generic machines don't.

The quality of the machine can significantly impact the results of your hair removal treatment. Reputable brands use advanced technology that is proven to be effective in targeting hair follicles while minimising damage to the surrounding skin.

High-quality machines often come with many settings that can be adjusted to suit your specific skin type and hair colour. This customisation is crucial to tailor the treatment to your individual needs, ensuring that it's both safe and effective.

Clinics who invest in reputable machines will receive comprehensive training and support from the manufacturer. This ensures the person operating the equipment is well-trained, minimising the risk of errors and maximising the treatment's effectiveness.
