National Morning Show Examines At-Home Laser Hair Removal
In addition to finding out more about the top news and national forecast, Good Morning America viewers also received lessons about a growing beauty trend during a recent segment!
At-home laser hair removal is one of the more convenient ways to rid yourself of the hassles of daily shaving and routine waxing.
But does it really work? GMA investigated with the help of five women who sampled different intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal treatments.
The women sampled IPLs ranging in price from $189 to $429, and they worked on a variety of skin tones.
IPLs claim to get you hair-free at home, but the women found that not necessarily to be the case. Some were happy with the results. Despite not getting completely hair-free, one woman found her hair to be noticeably thinner under her arms.
However, other women found the results to be minimal to non-existent. They highlighted that the recommended time frame for at-home treatment should be eight to 12 weeks, so it’s possible an additional four weeks would have enhanced the results.
But the truth is all women couldn’t get COMPLETELY hair-free. Ongoing touch-ups were required, which essentially means your hair-free journey will last forever.
What GMA doesn’t mention is the other option: true laser hair removal in the hands of a professional. This means going to a reputable clinic or spa for seven to 10 treatments. Results are considerably more apparent and consistent, regardless of the area being treated.
