How Much is Laser Hair Removal?

Unwanted hair removal takes time we all wish we could spend on something else. Traditional methods remove hair for days or weeks. With laser hair removal, you can have hair-free skin for years. Unlike other methods, laser hair removal stops hairs from growing for long-lasting results. 

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a way to stop hair from regrowing on almost any part of your body. This treatment acts on the hair follicles, the structures in the skin that grow and nourish hairs. By deactivating these follicles, laser hair removal gives you smooth skin with no shaving or waxing required.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by focusing on your hair follicles. Hairs contain a pigment called melanin that gives them their color. The laser targets melanin pigments, heating the root of the hair, so it damages the follicle. These deactivated follicles will no longer grow hair. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we use the Harmony® XL Pro laser system for maximum results in fewer treatments. 

How Much is Laser Hair Removal?

Costs for laser hair removal will vary widely. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons found the average cost to be $389 per session. Your final price will depend on:

  • Your location
  • Your provider
  • The area being treated
  • The number of treatments needed
  • Any other associated fees

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

Each person’s hair responds differently to laser hair removal. Hair has a natural growth cycle, and at any time, some of your follicles will be resting instead of growing hair. Each session will treat more hairs that have emerged since the previous one. Using our Harmony XL laser, most people require a series of six to eight treatments to achieve complete hair removal.  Most patients require a series of 6-8 sessions for total hair removal. Results vary from patient to patient and can be affected by the color and thickness of your hair, the area treated, and your skin color. You can expect a 10%-25% reduction in hair after the first treatment. We recommend occasional maintenance treatments to manage any slight, thin regrowth.

How Should I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?

Your preparation for laser hair removal will determine how well your treatment works. You must have an intact hair root with normal pigment, so you should avoid waxing, threading, or any other method that pulls out hairs. You should also avoid bleaching your hair. To prevent possible injury to your skin, avoid tanning or sun exposure before and after your session. 

Is There Any Downtime With Laser Hair Removal?

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for a day or two after treatment. We recommend avoiding harsh products or scrubs on the area for several days. You can resume your usual activities after your session. Maintain the recommended preparations between sessions to obtain the best results.
