By Bobby Sawyer
If you're looking to get rid of unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is your best bet. The technology is rapidly improving and it's becoming increasingly popular, especially over the last 5 or 6 years. There are lots of benefits of laser hair removal over, say, waxing or electrolysis. One of them happens to be price. So how much is laser hair removal going to set you back?
Well there are a few factors that you have to take into consideration when looking at how much laser hair removal will cost you. First off is the area you're looking to get treated. Generally, the larger the area that you want treated the more it's going to cost you. Only makes sense right? For example, if you're looking to get your arms done, than it will be a lot cheaper than getting your legs done. Unless your arms are a lot bigger than your legs, which would be really weird. Or getting your upper lip done will be a lot cheaper than getting your arms done. So the first thing you need to look at is the size of the area that needs to be treated.
Secondly, you need to look at the density of hair in the area you're looking to get treated. If your arms are quite hairy, chances are you're going to need more treatments than if your arms had very sparse amounts of hair. Same goes with your legs, upper lip or back to name a few other treatable areas. The more hair that needs to be removed, the more treatments will be required, and hence, the more money you will have to spend.
Generally speaking, laser hair removal clinics charge by are of the body. For example, guys that are looking to have hair removed generally are looking to get their neck and back treated, or their chest. So you'll find lots of places that offer to have treatments of chest or back and neck. that's not to say you would have to get both your neck and back done if you only needed your neck done or vice versa. A place will have prices adjusted accordingly.
Lots of places offer specials on more than one treatment, which is usually common to get the desired results. For example, on average, one session to do your upper lip may cost you $80. However, if you order a deal where you get 7 sessions at once, it will cost you $270. If you are looking to get your legs done, one session may cost you $450. But if you buy 7 sessions, it will only cost you $1500.
So prices vary and typically you need to wait several weeks between treatments because hair grows in cycles and you need to see which hairs have been eliminated. It's best to go in and get a consultation done by an expert to see how many sessions they think you'll need. And a lot of the time places have all kinds of excellent deals on, so it may not be as expensive as you think.
