Is Laser Hair Removal Worth The Cost?

Beauty & Fashion Blog

Waxing is effective in removing hair for up to two weeks. This is an advantage over shaving or plucking, but you still have to touch up the areas you wax after two or more weeks to maintain the hair-free look of your skin. If you want permanent hair removal, you should look into laser hair removal. You will find that not only is laser hair removal more permanent, but it can be more cost-effective than waxing.

Is Laser Hair Removal Truly Permanent

A major consideration when looking into laser hair removal should be how permanent you can expect the treatment to be. This will affect how much you pay as well as the efficacy of the treatment. One laser removal treatment will not permanently remove hair. Instead, you should expect to pay for up to six to eight treatments to achieve permanent removal status. Even then you might need to go in once or twice a year to a place like Dolce Vita Medical Spa & Salon to treat problem hairs that keep growing back. 

The Cost of Laser Hair Removal

How much you pay for hair removal will depend on the size of the area you want treated, but you can expect to pay between $150 and $500 per session. Thus to pay for eight sessions to completely rid your back of hair at a cost of $500 per session, you will end up paying $4,000 for the initial series of treatments. You may then have to pay $500 to a $1,000 per year to keep your back completely hair free. Removing hair from your face can cost as little as $1,200 for the initial series of treatments and between $120 to $240 per year to maintain a clear face.

Overall Cost

Waxing can cost as little as $5 for a small area such as your chin and as much as $120 to wax a large area such as your chest. Thus, on the face of it, it looks like waxing is the cheaper option. However, by projecting the costs over the long term, you can get a better idea of how cost effective each treatment really is. Paying $5 every two weeks will lead to an annual cost of $130 a year to keep your chin hair free. On the other hand, if you want to keep your chin, legs, back, and chest hair free, you will pay as much as $305 dollars every two weeks for a yearly cost of $7,930. In contrast you would pay $4000 to rid your back of hair, another $4,000 to rid your legs of hair, and yet another $4,000 to rid your chest of hair. Then you would pay $1,500 per year to keep those three areas hair free. 

What these numbers illustrate is that you will pay more initially for laser hair removal, but if you want to keep a large area hair-free, you will save money in the long run by using laser hair removal. Thus, if you are looking for the most permanent and cost effective way to rid a large area of hair, then laser hair removal is the best choice.

Accessorizing Your Evening Gown

My name is Melinda Franklin, and I want to thank you for visiting my website. My husband Joseph is an executive in the firm where he works. This means we have three to five annual formal affairs to attend. I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most fashion savvy person. For years, I would find and wear what I thought was the perfect evening gown for each event, yet never felt quite as lovely as I thought I should. I would admire the other women and wonder why I didn’t feel as stunning as they looked. Then it finally dawned on me --it was my lack of accessories. The other women wore earrings and necklaces that completed their outfits. I haphazardly put on jewelry and accessories that I knew were mundane. I would like to share some accessorizing tips I’m using now.
