Beauty is pain, but only if you want it to be. That couldn’t be more true when it comes to body hair. Personally, my mood changes from one month to the next. Sometimes I’m not bothered by bushy armpits, prickly legs, and a grown-in bikini line. And then there are times I want everything—and I mean everything—waxed or shaved away. And then there are those who prefer permanent reduction by way of at-home laser hair removal, which is mostly pain-free and honestly, worth the investment if you want smooth skin and nothing else.
For those who are new to the DIY hair removal method, laser hair removal is when light is pulsed into the skin to heat up and diminish hair at the root over time. I say “over time” because it usually takes consistent use over several weeks to get full results since at-home tools aren’t as potent and powerful as the tools you typically encounter in a dermatologist’s office. With that being said, it’s important to proceed with caution when using an at-home tool. Read directions, test one part of the skin first to make sure it doesn’t cause any adverse reactions and if you can, leave the ultra-sensitive areas to a professional.
Ready to get laser-focused on your hair removal goals. Here are 10 top-rated at-home devices to try for expert-level results. (Pro-tip: look for tools with unlimited flashes so you don’t have to order replacement cartridges later.)
