Before the discussion about prices, you have to be informed that laser hair removal doesn’t work for everyone. This procedure works well only in lighter skinned, darker haired patients. The question is why is it so? Answer – Because the target chromophore in hair follicles is melanin pigment, less laser energy is absorbed by the skin and more by the hair follicle. So, if you are darker skinned, this procedure, unfortunately, is not for you. The same problem is with light hair and tanned skin.
Laser hair removal prices
The first question which people ask about laser hair removal is “How much does it cost?” Well, prices depend on several factors including where are you interesting in having hair removed, the amount of hair, number of treatments and also. You should expect to need four or six treatments per area to maximize hair removal. After each session, you will observe that more than 15% of your unwanted hair is gone and they will never grow up again. Other 75% percent of hair regrow weaker and have color. After a half of the year you will notice that more than 50% of hair is successfully eliminated.
Sometimes prices depend on time and number of pulses (pulse – the time when laser fires). For example, let’s imagine, that clinic charges 100$ per 15 minutes. If woman’s leg takes about an hour, the totalprice will be 400 $. As it was mentioned, some clinics may charge by pulse with a minimum fee per area. For example, the cost of 1 pulse is 1$. So, the totalprice s will be 200$ based on 100$ minimum fee which include first 100 pulses and dollar per pulse thereafter. You only get charged for actual pulses unless you have fewer pulses than the minimum. As you progress in your series of laser hair removal treatments, yourprice per treatment may decline as you have less hair to be removed. Different lasers have different spot sizes and will therefore have differentprices per pulse.
Here you can see list of the approximate prices (per treatment session):
|Treatment area||Cost per session||Nr. of sessions|
|Side of Face||$100|
The interval between laser hair removal sessions fluctuates for each individual. Also the interval depends on the area of body where you are going to have the treatment. But in general the interval of 4 to 6 (sometimes to 8) weeks is usual.
