For many individuals, the idea of permanently removing unwanted hair from their bodies is an extremely attractive option. The idea of never shaving, or plucking, or waxing certainly sounds ideal, particularly in sensitive areas like the bikini line. But some shy away from bikini line laser hair removal because they view it as too expensive, and they don’t really take the time to take a good look at the numbers. So, how much does bikini laser hair removal cost really?
There are many factors that influence the price of bikini hair removal. The average cost varies drastically across the country, with the average price for a single treatment in the Midwest ranging from $200-300, while, unsurprisingly, Southern states with year-round warm temperatures, will cost you more—about $500 per session. The average cost of a single bikini hair removal laser treatment in the U.S. is around $400. Laser bikini hair removal typically requires only three to six treatments.
Of course, region isn’t the only factor impacting the varied pricing of bikini hair removal. Fees among medical professionals vary, even within regions. Those with more years of experience will naturally charge more than those with fewer. The number of treatments included in a package will affect the per-session cost, and there are different types of laser treatment that can be performed, each varying in price.
Let’s take the average cost of a single treatment and do a little number crunching. Most people need three to six treatments for the best results. Let’s say you need six, so this would run, on average, about $2400 total. Now, if you’re a waxer, you know that if you want a Brazilian, it will run you about $100 a wax, and if you strictly want the bikini line, it will cost around $40. Typically, you’ll need to wax every three weeks, which will cost $680/year for the simplest bikini wax. So, three and a half years of waxing is equivalent to the price of permanent hair removal.
If you shave, you spend about $70-100 per year on razors and shaving creams. On the conservative side, 34 years of shaving costs the same as six treatments to permanently remove your hair with laser treatments, on average. Even more importantly, that’s 34 years of cuts, razor burn discomfort, redness and bumps, for a total of about 3 hours in the doctor’s office.
For a perfectly smooth bikini line, with no irritation between shavings or waxings, laser hair removal is really an excellent option. Ultimately, it is both more affordable and more convenient than other available options.
