How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost

Are you thinking about having laser hair removal because you don’t want to worry about shaving anymore?   You’re not alone.  Many people are now turning to laser hair removal because it’s a convenient, effective way to manage unwanted hair growth.  But how much does laser hair removal cost?

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face and body.  The light energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle and generates heat that damages the hair growth center, and inhibits future hair growth.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of laser hair removal is about $285 per session.  However, prices may differ significantly from the average due to the influence of several factors.

Factors That Affect The Cost of Laser Hair Removal

  • Size of the area.  Larger areas such as the legs and back, are generally more expensive to treat when compared to smaller areas like the underarms or bikini line because they need more treatment time.
  • Number of sessions required.  Depending on the size of the treatment area, it may take 4-7 sessions to achieve optimal hair reduction.  The more treatments required the higher the cost is likely to be.
  • Type of Laser Used.  There are multiple laser technologies available for laser hair removal and modern, state-of-the-art lasers might cost more. 

The level of experience of the provider, geographic location of the practice, skin type, and hair density can also affect the cost of laser hair removal.
