How Costly Is Laser Hair Removal?  

The cost of Laser hair removal is of less importance to the hundreds of men and women who have benefited from this technique. Laser hair removal may be more expensive than other hair removal methods such as plucking, waxing or shaving.

However, it is a longer-lasting treatment and saves you valuable dollars in the future. Laser hair removal is a simple and clean procedure for a permanent solution from the problem of unwanted hair.

The cost of Laser hair removal depends on a number of factors. These factors will cumulatively decide the cost of the treatment. Because the factors vary from person to
person, the cost of the treatment will also vary for each individual. The factors that determine the cost of laser hair removal are -

* The amount of hair to be removed - Denser hair will have a higher charge for laser hair removal than hair that is sparse.

* The area to be covered - Laser hair removal for larger areas such as the legs will cost more for than smaller areas such as upper lips.

* Every individual has unique hair growth. For the same body area, two individuals could require different times and therefore different costs of treatment for laser hair

The laser hair removal clinic will initially fix a consultation with the customer to determine the above factors in order to arrive at the cost for the laser hair removal treatment.

A fixed price is rarely charged. The price usually varies from individual to individual. The cost could be determined on the following basis -

* Time - some laser clinics charge based on a certain time. For example, every 15 minutes treatment could cost $100. How much time each individual takes would depend on the hair growth and the area covered.

* Cost per pulse - some laser clinics charge based on each pulse. A "pulse" refers to each time that the laser is fired. A single pulse could destroy approximately 100 hairs. Again, the number of pulses required depends on the amount of hair growth and the area covered.

* Flat fee - In some cases, laser clinics charge a flat fee for each session or each body part. For example, $100 for the upper lip etc.

Fixed pricing is rare and limited for laser hair removal procedures. Ultimately, the cost of the laser hair removal will be different for each person.

In a survey conducted by a health care organization, it is found that generally $500 is charged for a session of laser hair removal and on an average, four sessions are required for an effective treatment.
