Unsightly or unwanted hair can be frustrating to get rid of. Laser hair removal has improved this problem and allows for quick and painless removal of hair, but getting a laser hair removal machine can be expensive.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    First, it is important to decide how much you want to spend (the machines can be very expensive to purchase and maintain) and if you're comfortable doing the procedure at home.

  2. 2

    Figure out what features you'd like the device to have. Keep in mind that cheaper lasers may not be as effective or could potentially damage your skin. When looking for a device, make sure to look for lasers that are lower in power. Because these lasers target melanin (a dark skin component), they can damage the skin if they're overused in certain areas. A low-power laser will help to prevent this and make at-home treatments much easier.

  3. 3

    Once you've done the research, you can begin by looking online for your laser hair remover. It is recommended to get a new machine to ensure that it functions properly. There are several beauty websites that offer the machines, as well as larger online retailers like Amazon. You can find links to these sites in the resources below.

    You can also find laser hair removal devices in select retail stores. The best retail outlets to check would be beauty boutiques, salons and other personal grooming stores.

  5. 5

    Another option is to contact a doctor's office. There are several cosmetic surgery offices that have older but functional equipment they no longer need. Getting in touch with these places may allow you to get a professional machine for a very low price. Make sure to do research of these professional machines to check operation requirements.

  6. 6

    The final option is to purchase a session with a trained professional. If you're not comfortable performing the procedure on your own, a professional with the necessary training and experience is your best choice. These specialists are best found at cosmetic centres and salons. Ask your personal physician for recommendations.

Tips and warnings

  • Before spending the money, make sure you're comfortable with performing the procedure on your own.
  • Skin damage and permanent hair loss can occur. Make sure to consult a professional or read the manual thoroughly before operating any device.
