Laser hair removal is expensive due to multiple treatments required. The reasons is that hair grows in a cycle that ranges from approximately 6 to 12 weeks and this is amount of time that it takes hair to grow from base of follicle to surface of skin. As hair grows during these cycles, only a portion of hair is being treated during this growth period with each laser treatment. Therefore multiple treatments (approximately four to eight depending upon your colour of your hair and skin) are required during this growth period. This is so that each treatment allows total coverage on all hairs during various growth cycle. This can range from approximately a four to eight week interval. As discussed above, darked hair patients with fair skin require less treatment.
The average cost per treatment ranges from $500 and about four sessions are required. Again, this number will differ depending upon size of area treated and colour of your skin and hair. To get an exact cost, a consultation on pricing is an individual process and it is best to discuss this with laser center.
Once you have decided to undertake this treatment, make sure it is performed by an experienced laser treatment centre. Due to different state regulations, there has been varying level of compliance with laser hair removal centres and this has resulted in improper treatment by unskilled clinics. Some states require a doctor to perform treatment, whilst for others; anyone including “unskilled” personnel can perform treatment. Read latest news on laser hair removal for more information. These improper unskilled clinic may result in burns (similar to sunburn), lesions, skin discolouration that can last several months, or patchy/patterned regrowth. One rule to remember is that cheaper is not always best, so find best laser hair removal centre around.
