Why Chemical Peels And Laser Hair Removal DIYs Are A Bad Idea
While do it yourselfers or DIY activities are the new trends for saving more time and money, they should be avoided when it comes to your skincare and medical spa treatments. Procedures like chemical peels and laser hair removal are risky when attempted at home. Sure they may feel safe when performed by a trained professional. However, when tried out without sufficient experience, these skincare procedures could damage the skin.
To give you an idea of what could go wrong without proper training or complete knowledge of the job, the experts at Body Face Image Solutions have put together two reasons why chemical peels and laser hair removal DIYs are a bad idea.
1. Skin damage or no results
If you choose to do DIY chemical peels and laser hair removal at home without certified equipment and the right training, you could injure your skin excessively. Poorly executed chemical peels and laser procedures can burn the skin leading to scars and non-effective results.
2. Purchasing products not cleared by the FDA
One of the biggest causes for burns and scars during laser hair removal and chemical peels, is using substandard equipment. Many people choose cheaper products that are harsh for their skin or they use these products without caution. Before you decide to do your own laser hair removal procedure or a chemical peel, understand that you must have sufficient knowledge and training in these treatments. Once you acquire this, you need to ensure you purchase FDA approved products to safely and securely attempt either of these methods.
Do things right - Hire a professional
To administer a chemical peel or laser hair treatment, you need to possess a medical certification or license. To get this license, you must receive proper schooling and training to learn how to effectively use the machines and peels safely. The equipment and solutions we use at Body Face Image Solutions can only be purchased by a medical professional with schooling in these products.
As professionals, we can adequately get you the results you desire without hurting or damaging the epidermis. When choosing a professional for your chemical peel treatment or laser hair removal procedure, make sure to choose a registered doctor, a registered nurse, or a medical esthetician. Depending on the treatment you choose, these experts may charge anything between $60-$3,000. At the same time, they will ensure that you see the results you are after in a safe and effective manner.
