Though its 3-square-centimeter flash window isn’t quite as large as some, this is still good enough to get the job done. You may just need to do a few more passes over your legs, back, or chest to cover large areas adequately.
That being said, this device will probably be easier to use in tighter spaces like the face, neck, and cheeks, without requiring you to switch heads.
You may think that this smaller window doesn’t really make sense. Wouldn’t a larger window be preferable? Perhaps.
However, you also need to take into account that this device shows results after only one treatment and that you should be able to get all hair removed in three. If your hair ever grows back (as happens sometimes due to hormonal changes and new hair follicles developing), you can buy a replacement flash head instead of having to purchase an entirely new machine.
Works on Blonde and Red Hair
This device is comparable to the Remington iLIGHT Ultra in that both show results at the same rapid rate, and they’re virtually the same price.
So what makes this one the better choice?
Significantly, it works on light blonde and red hair, while the Remington only works on darker hair. In fact, none of the other models we feature here works on these types of hair.
Like the Remington, this laser hair removal kit comes with its own docking station. What is the purpose of this? Some people would say that there really isn’t one and that this station simply adds to the size of the unit they need to find storage space for.
For women who are happy to place their laser in a drawer, it is probably better to go with one of the others which doesn’t come with a large docking station. For women whose homes are rather busy, who share a bathroom, or whose kids may regard delicate household appliances as the coolest toys, this or the Remington will have advantages. The docking station gives you a safe place to set your device between treatments where it is less likely to be damaged.
Of all the home devices on our list, the LumaRx makes the most ambitious claims. It claims you will see results after only one session and also that you’ll achieve about 95% hair reduction in only 3 treatments.
These claims took us by surprise. We know that you can’t see full results in one session because of individual hairs’ life cycle, but 95% after 3 treatments seems possible.
It’s just hard to comprehend considering that the others require anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments before achieving such results.
However, there are quite a lot of satisfied customers who attest to the claims, so we feel comfortable in recommending it as the go-to at-home laser hair removal device for those who want results fast.
- The docking station gives you a safe place to store your device when you aren't using it.
- You'll see some results after the first treatment, and full results by the third.
- Works on light blonde hair and red hair.
- Only good for 65,000 pulses, which may not be enough for repeat hair treatments (you can buy extra, though).
- One of the most expensive hair removal machines for home use.
