Electrolysis Cost - What to Expect
By Bobby Sawyer
Electrolysis has been around for quite some time and is a common procedure to get rid of unwanted body hair. Lots of people use this as a permanent hair removal system because it does in fact work. But one of the biggest problems people face is electrolysis cost, it can be quite expensive. But just how expensive is it?
There are a number of different factors that play into electrolysis cost. Some of these factors include how experienced the physician is, the area that is to be treated and the total number of treatments needed to get the desired results. So depending on the factors that are involved, the price range can be from anywhere in the neighborhood of $50 to $500, sometimes even more.
Probably the biggest cost factor is the area of the body that needs to be treated. In general, the larger the area being treated, the more money it's going to cost. If you are looking to have your eyebrows done, for example, it will be quite a bit cheaper than getting your arms done. And getting your arms done will be quite a bit cheaper than getting your back done. The bigger the are, the more treatments are needed. The more treatments needed means the more money you will spend.
Another factor is that you can only do so much in a visit. If you're looking to get your eyebrows done, it may only take a few visits. But if you're looking to get your arms done, it will take a lot more visits. You can only do small areas at a time every visit because it's time consuming and can be painful. It would be impossible to have your arms done in only 5 or 6 sessions.
When you are interested in having electrolysis done you generally go in to see the physician to get a consultation. During the consultation you'll get an estimate from the physician. But it is just an estimate, there is no way of really knowing how many treatments you'll need. It depends on how thick the hair is and whether or not the follicle was actually treated properly the first time. A follicle can take a few treatments sometimes before the hair is eliminated.
Ultimately, electrolysis cost really depends on a lot of factors. That's why it's very difficult to actually get a really good estimate on how mush it will cost you. What takes some people only a few treatments for their arms or eyebrows may take you that many more. The only way to fully know how much it will cost you is to add up all your visits after your last visit.
