At Home or In Spa Treatment? How Your Medical Spa Can Help

Trust us, we know it can be a hassle coming in for treatments....when really you could be sitting on your couch with a glass of wine, your face mask on, and a laser hair removal wand in hand watching Gossip Girl reruns. Yas, please!


The reality is at home treatments are much less effective and you will be exhausted putting in hours of treatment time with very little result. Your arm will get tired...if anything, try four glasses of wine. 

At-home laser hair removal kits have a much lower laser settings than spa lasers. Kristin, our laser technician here at Vermont Laser Services, discusses how she varies her energy levels based on a person's skin type and hair color. One of the most popular home kits on the market right now is not even close to reaching the potential of a professional laser. Powerful lasers should only be used by highly trained professionals. 

Tip: Make sure when you do make an appointment for a laser treatment at your local medical spa that your technician is trained in that service by asking them about their certifications. 

So the actuality is that you will not experience the same results or effectiveness with at home treatments and it takes ten times longer. If I were me, which I am, I would want to go for a 15 minute treatment and then sit on the couch without worrying about leg hair. 

As for facials, if you're like any other girl, you will have dozens of different creams, masks and face washes in your medicine cabinet. If you added all of those purchased up it would probably be worth a couple hundred if not more. Carbon Laser Facials have been proven to be highly effective not only reversing aging but also getting rid of black heads, acne and leaving your skin flawless and glowing.
