Using Laser Safety Goggles For Home Hair Removal
Using laser safety goggles when doing laser hair removal at home, is an option one might wont to consider. When attending a professional laser clinic, they will be giving you some kind of eye protection to make sure you do not stare at the laser beam. If a person stares directly into the laser beam, a severe eye injury might occur. The laser light might cause even blindness when it reaches the inner eye tissue.
Safe Home Hair Removal Devices
Most home hair removal devices have some kind of safety mechanism, to protect the users from accidental flashes of light to the eyes. This is done by adding a skin touch sensor at the tip of the applicator. Unless the applicator is firmly pressed at the skin, and all sides of the window are covered by skin, most systems will not emit laser or IPL flash.
For this reason if you buy a safe home hair removal device, you do not NEED laser safety goggles. Laser or IPL will not be projected unless placed over the skin.
Laser Hair Removal Eye Protection
If you buy one of the semi-professional laser hair removal systems like the Avance DM6050 laser, which is actually a professional laser kit for clinics which is sold for home personal use also. The Avance home laser systems do NOT have the skin touch sensors, so the treatment process is much faster. The downside is that the beam is projected without any skin contact, and accidental emissions can occur!
In this occasion you must use laser protection goggles to protect your eyes from side radiation.
