Your Pricing Guide to Laser Hair Removal

A new wave of technology is growing in the healthand beauty industry. Laser hair removal has been aroundfor quite some time, however, the latest and more advancedprocedure available has been attracting many new patientswho want to get rid of unwanted hair. If you're acandidate for laser hair removal, one thing to consideris whether or not it's in your budget.

Price is Not Everything

First you must choose who you will consult with for theprocedure. Make sure the physician and/or technician whowill be performing the procedure comes with highrecommendations from previous patients. Althoughlaser hair removal is not considered a high risksurgery, it's still a very detailed procedure whichrequires expertise to perform precisely. Ask forreferences, and follow up on the references you receive.Find out if past customers were satisfied with theservices and results. Ask if the procedure was painlessand effective. Find out if there were side effects,and how severe. Each individual will be unique, soit's good to ask several people before reaching adecision.

Price may or may not be the determining factor. You'llneed to weigh the price against service. Obviously,if you have two providers who both come highlyrecommended, you might choose the less expensive one!

Although each physician, clinic or technician is goingto be uniquely priced when performing laser hair removalprocedures, below is a detailed guide of what you mightexpect to pay if you're considering laser hair removal.

Priced by the Region

In the U.S., the price you'll pay for laser hair removalwill often be determined by where you live. Everyregion has its own "cost of living" structure which oftenreflects how services or products are priced. As ofthe year 2001, these were the typical prices (pertreatment) for each region, but with new technologyand simpler solutions many regions have decreasedslightly in price since.

  • Western U.S.: Estimated average of between $450 - $500
  • Eastern U.S.: Estimated average of between $450 - $500
  • Southern U.S.: Estimated average of between $300 - $350
  • Midwestern U.S.: Estimated average of between $500 - $550

As you can see, the southern U.S. pricing average wassubstantially less than the other regions.

Priced by the Hair Removal Need

Another way pricing is determined for laser hair removalis by individual need. For example, where you need thehair removed makes a difference as well as how much hair.

Below is a brief guide to estimated procedure costs:

Among the lower priced procedures are the nose, ears andhands which can range from $30 to $50 per visit.Next are the chin, upper lip, mid-brows, sideburns andneck (front or back) which normally range from $50 to$100 per visit.

Procedures which normally cost well over $100 are theface, scalp, underarms, abs, arms, upper arms, chest,back, legs, and bikini. There are also entire bodyhair removal procedures which can average between $700and $1300 per visit.

Priced by the Visit

Remember that you'll have to make multiple visits tocomplete the procedure. Normally, three to five visitsare required with the first visit being the highestin price. The procedure prices mentioned above areeach based on the first visit costs. The visits becomeless expensive each go.

Many providers offer touch-up visits as well, whichcan be priced up to three or four times less thanthe first visit.

The reason for the vast price differences in someprocedures is ultimately the time and/or difficultyinvolved. For example, removing hair from a mid browwould take far less time than removing entire facialhair. Some areas of the body are more sensitive ordifficult to reach and therefore, would take extracare when performing laser hair removal.

Keep in mind that many providers are now offeringspecial combined rates to save the patient money.For example, if it's estimated that you'll needfour visits, you might receive a discount offof your total price in a prepaid package. This,again, will vary by provider, region and procedure.

This guide is not meant to give exact pricing forany particular provider, but simply as a guide togive you a general idea of how laser hair removalis priced.
