The first thing you have to know when asking the question, what does laser hair removal cost? To answer this correctly there are many things that come into play. What type of laser are they using and for the skin color you have. What that means is there is a major difference in lasers. An example is a true laser is much better than a pulse light device because one is a flashlamp and the other a true laser. Another is there are different types of true lasers developed for different skin types. Like a Yag or diode laser is a good laser for African Americans or Indian people because of skin color. The diode laser can do all skin colors and a great laser. A Yag laser is a good laser for dark skin types as well but, it is best for deeper hair like terminal hair like pubic hair.
Plus, there is a serious cost difference is owning and operating different types of lasers. A pulse light device is much cheaper to buy then an Alexandrite laser. Pulse lights are called a poor man’s laser.
An alexandrite laser is a great laser for Caucasians, Hispanics, and Orientals. Hispanic laser hair removal, Asian laser hair removal and Caucasian laser hair removal are all great for a Gentle lase Plus laser.
Another important question is who is treating you. There are businesses with young girls, minimum training, paid poorly so the office just sets the laser at a low setting. There is no liability but, no cure either and you just keep coming back paying. My suggestion is pay per treatment and then you know exactly if you are receiving a great laser treatment.
If larger areas are being done the area should be charted like a graft with a yellow marker so there is little or no miss. The area shaved totally because there should be no hair above the skin. The work of the laser is to kill the hair follicle under the skin. Any hair above the skin brings discomfort and other reasons.
What laser hair removal costs depend on how large the area that is being treated and how many areas are being treated. Discounts are larger the more areas done per laser hair removal visit.
There are serious differences in people by size, color, age, etc. So how many treatments and how much they cost per treatment needs to be evaluated and no charge to do that for those answers. The reasons are many. One example is how much hair there is to treat. An example is a man’s back. Some men their shoulders, sides, total back are totally covered in heavy hair and another man it is just the rib cage area that has hair. Of course the partial back will be much cheaper than the heavy haired man needing three times the area.
Contrast is everything to a laser. Dark hair and light skin gives the very best a laser can produce if done correctly using the best laser for the skin type.
There is so much more to tell you and there is no charge to let someone know what they are looking at to resolve a hair removal request.
