How Much is Laser Hair Removal?

How much time and money do you spend every year on hair removal? Whether you wax, shave, epilate, or pluck, hair removal time or costs add up. While laser hair removal is much more expensive than a single waxing service, it is much more cost-effective over time

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is your way to say goodbye to hair almost anywhere on your body, from legs to facial hair. Areas you can have treated include:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area

If you’re ready to stop shaving or waxing these areas, it’s time to set up a consultation with the laser hair removal specialists at Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute to find out about eliminating your unwanted body or face hair for good!  How Much is Laser Hair Removal?

According to WebMD, a laser hair removal session costs, on average, $389. Your cost is most affected by the location you are having treated, as well as the amount of hair that returns after your first session.  For example, a back treatment is going to cost much more than a lip or underarm!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

We use the Harmony® XL Pro laser system with Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology to make the hair removal process faster and more comfortable. This laser sends pulses of energy into the skin, but in such a narrow wavelength that the skin doesn’t absorb it at all. Instead, this energy gets absorbed by the melanin in the hair roots and hair follicles. 

The heat never rises high enough to feel uncomfortable, but the energy heats up the hair follicles and destroys them, preventing them from growing hair.

People who assume laser hair removal is painful have never had treatment with the SHR system. Most patients don’t even require numbing cream, and at most, people say their skin feels warm or that they feel a tingling sensation. 

What Results Will I See With Laser Hair Removal?

You’ll probably need between six and eight treatments to treat all your hair follicles, as they go through active and resting phases. Resting follicles don’t contain any melanin, so new follicles will have woken up and can be removed at each treatment. You’ll see somewhere between 10% and 25% of your hair follicles deactivated after your first session. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Unlike other laser hair removal systems, the Super Hair Removal (SHR) system will work for people of all skin tones.  People with white or very pale hair often do not make good candidates as they may not have enough melanin in their hair for the laser to target.
