In recent years, a number of devices have been developed to seek to provide patients with the ability to achieve hair removal at home. These devices are based on similar laser technology to target the hair follicle for destruction. The evidence behind these devices is limited to small, uncontrolled studies. The risk of eye injuries with improper use is also a real concern.

Home hair removal systems
Home Hair Removal Systems are worthless/dangerous
I do not recommend any home hair removal systems. People overuse them, don't understand the technology, burn themselves, get bad or no results, etc. Plus, these machines are so much lower quality than professional systems it's like asking if a bike is equal to a car because they are both transportation devices - NO! It's not worth trying - it's a waste of your time and money, and not to mention can be exceptionally dangerous! If you want laser hair removal services go to an office with a physician overseeing all treatments.
