We all spend untold amounts of time and money getting rid of unwanted body hair. Whether you're having to buy a new pack of razors, nicking yourself with a dull blade, spending money on a painful waxing session or tweezing out individual hairs, it's a never-ending hassle. And all of that work adds up. According to some statistics, over the course of their lives, men and women can spend more than $10,000 and literally months of time removing unwanted hair.
Given these challenges, it's no wonder that more and more people are flocking to laser hair removal. Unlike other options, laser hair removal claims to be permanent, so once it's done, you don't have to worry about waxing, shaving or plucking ever again. But is the process actually worth it? Let's break down the numbers.
Depending on what part of the country you're in, costs for laser hair removal can vary widely. In fact, costs between different facilities in the same area can be significantly different. On average though, a single laser hair removal session costs around $400. Still, that number can skyrocket dramatically for certain areas of the body.
For example, getting laser hair removal performed on your legs can cost in excess of $800. Similarly, for the face and neck you could shell out close to $900. Smaller areas, such as your arms or bikini area typically cost between $300 and $500.
If those numbers sound high, then brace yourself. Unfortunately, the hairlessness offered by laser hair removal doesn't take effect after the first session. Depending on how your body reacts to the treatment, it can take anywhere from three to six treatments before you can say good-bye to shaving and waxing. So if laser hair removal is an option you want to explore, you should be prepared to spend thousands of dollars to get the results you want.
Sure, laser hair removal can have a staggeringly high upfront cost. But is it worth the price? After all, you have to consider all of the money that you won't be spending on hair removal in the future. Plus, add in the freedom of not having to take time out of your day to get rid of annoying stubble or stray hairs, and the benefits add up quickly. Also, some spas offer package deals, allowing you to buy sessions in bulk to cut down on the cost.
So if you have the money, laser hair removal can be a great investment. The price tag may give you sticker shock now, but think of all the time and money you'll be saving in the future.
