    Default laser hair removal at home

    I really want to permanently get rid of the hair on my legs but I do not want to frequently go to a doctor just for this. Is it possible to undergo laser hair removal at home?

    Tria laser is a device cleared by the FDA for home use that can be used on the legs, bikini line, underarms, feet, arms, hands, chest, and back. It requires multiple treatments to have the best results.

    How Does Tria Laser Work?
    A diode laser uses beams of light heat on the follicles to disable them. It has five adjustable settings from low to high. The highest setting uses the most heat, and will give better results.

    Who Can Use It?
    Those with light skin tones (white, ivory, beige and light brown) can safely use Tria. The system comes with a skin sensor that will test your skin tone and determine if itís light enough to use. Only if your skin passes with a green light, will the laser unlock for use. Scarring, blistering and burning can result if itís used on skin tones that are too dark.

    Because this laser is targeting dark pigment, white, gray, blond or red hair will not benefit from using the system. Even if the hair is darkened with color, the hair follicle wonít absorb enough laser light to be effective.

    How Effective Is It?
    Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isnít on the same stage at any given time, multiple treatments are needed to get the hair in the growth phase, for the laser to be most effective. So 6-8 treatments are recommended, 2- 4 weeks apart.

    How Much Does it Cost?
    Initially the price was $995 when released in early 2008. February 24, 2009 a new version replaced the old one boasting a 20% reduction in price at $795, and quicker treatments with the laser firing two times faster. As of November 3rd, 2009 the price is $595.

    You can do it at home but i would suggest you have it done by an expert. Expense will be less if you go to a beauty clinic. Spending 595$ and not getting desired result will be a waste of time and money both.

    Yes it is possible as long that you will know how to do it. Why dont you try Tria laser device it is used for permanent hair reduction for home. You can use it not just for the legs but also in your hands, chest, and back and so and so. You can also use Veet waxes and cream if you want to ,it is also for the hair removal of your legs.

    I wouldn't have the courage to do this all by myself. It's better to go at a beauty clinic. Good luck!

    This is really one such thing that shouldn't be tried at home, at least by someone who is inexperienced. Very often we find that many people end up using the devices or therapies in the incorrect manner (not only for laser hair removal) which results in undesired outcomes like diseases, skin dysfunction. hormonal imbalance and more. Case should be taken to ensure that treatments like laser hair removal should be always performed by a specialist.

    The procedure is virtually painless. Some patients have mild discomfort and take pain medication, but compared to other methods, laser hair removal involves less pain.

    The potential side effects of laser hair removal are swelling, redness, and scaring. Permanent scarring or changes in skin color are rare.

    My friend uses at home laser removal and she had dark hair and apparently it works better with dark hair. It's been two years now and trust me there is no change, after a while the hair grows back thicker. You can ask anyone with at home laser removal system you would get the same reply.
