Shaving, waxing, and plucking are parts of the regular beauty routine for most women. In order to eliminate unwanted hair and get the smooth, touchable skin that is desired, these are just a necessary step that must be taken. Unfortunately, these routines are tiring, time-consuming, and don’t always produce the best results. At Full Spectrum Dermatology, we offer our patients a more convenient solution that offers long-term results. Cosmetic lasers can smooth and perfect the skin in a multitude of ways, one of which is hair removal. Laser hair removal offers patients effective results that are more convenient and much longer lasting. While these results are hard to beat, many of our Fullerton patients have questions regarding laser hair removal costs. Here patients can learn more about the potential costs of laser hair removal.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Laser hair removal offers patients the potential of permanently smooth, hairless skin. The convenience and effectiveness of laser hair removal are so great that it is no surprise that this is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. However, it is understandable that, when considering treatment, patients must consider the cost. As with any cosmetic procedure, the cost is likely to vary from one practice to the next. These variations may be based on location of the practice and experience of the doctors and dermatologists at the practice. In addition, the cost of laser hair removal will vary based on several different treatment factors, including the following:
- The area being treated
- The size of the area being treated
- The time that is required for treatment
- The number of treatments that are required for effective results
Because each treatment is personalized to the patient’s unique needs, a personal consultation is the best way to determine the final cost of hair removal treatment. While the average cost of a single laser hair removal treatment is about $250, the average patient will require between three and five treatments in order to achieve permanent hair loss, meaning that patients should anticipate the cost of hair removal for a single treatment area to come in around $1,000.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the more affordable cosmetic treatments available. Most patients find that the costs of laser hair removal can be fit within their budget, especially with the variety of financing options available. Aside from the relatively low cost of treatment, laser hair removal provides patients with the following benefits:
- Convenience: Patients can save a great amount of time on shaving, waxing, and other hair removal practices.
- Precision: The laser used for hair removal is extremely precise and can target hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin.
- Effectiveness: Laser hair removal results are highly effective. Within three to five treatment sessions, 90 percent of patients benefit from permanently smooth, hair-free skin.
