Our hair removal laser (Diode and YAG) is an American FDA approved “medical laser hair removal device”. These devices are very effective and powerful, but it cannot be used unless it is at a medical institution.
On the other hand, what seems to be called a laser at many esthetic salons, it is often “light therapy equipment”, the output is also weak, and it is more than doubled times (medical laser If it is 5 times, I hear that it is often necessary to have more than 10 times on esthetic equipment).
Also, basically hair removal is a medical practice, so if you interpret it by law, laser hair removal outside of medical facility is considered unlawful in Japan.
