Which Laser Hair Removal Machine Is The Best?

Here, we compare the big brand professional laser hair removal machines so you can see if the one used at a clinic is right one for you. .

Laser hair removal is on the rise, an industry growing at an incredible rate. Laser Hair Removal machines are now super powerful and finally – packages are now affordable! 5-6 years ago, full body laser removal packages were easily £3000+ however, things have changed. With more companies and laser technicians, the industry is more competitive, but this means it can be a minefield when choosing which company is right for you.

When starting to research laser hair removal, the absolute KEY thing you must investigate, and research correctly is – which laser hair removal machine is the best? Which laser hair removal machine is the most powerful?

You want the BEST service possible with the BEST laser hair removal machine otherwise it may not work, your hair may not be removed and/or your hair may return meaning your money is wasted. Cheaper isn’t always better and if it’s too cheap, how Is it that cheap?! There’s always a reason and usually, that reason will be an inexperienced technician using a very cheap and usually unsafe machine potentially using old technology.

Fundamentals you must investigate when choosing your laser hair removal clinic:

  • How experienced are the Laser Technician(s)? Be careful with technicians with little to no experience branching into this market and being manufacturer machine trained only rather than actual beauty/laser qualifications.
  • Reviews on Google. It’s almost impossible to remove Google reviews so it always good to check rather than booking systems such as Treatwell or Booksy.
  • Results images on their website, Google and Instagram etc
  • Brand of laser hair removal machine – Is the manufacturer reputable?
  • Where is the machine manufacturer based? Good machines tend not be manufactured in China.
  • Are the machines white labeled? I.e. Is this a Chinese manufacturer but an English based company buying in machines and putting their logo on them? Examples of brands that do this – The ‘laser mach’ as its first known is manufactured by a company in China called Wingderm. They are sold all over the world and white labeled by various brands.
  • What is the clinic like? Always check photos of the inside to ensure the place looks professional/clean and that you’re not going to a spare room in someone’s home!

However, they seem to give fairly good results.

Be careful of unbranded laser hair removal machines or self-branded. No brand – what are they hiding? Normally Chinese machines that are uninsurable and potentially unsafe to use.

All laser hair removal technicians in the UK must be face to face trained by the machine manufacturer otherwise they are not insured to conduct your treatment. If they have bought a counterfeit machine, they won’t be manufacturer trained and insurance will be invalid.
