Cost for Different Methods to Hair Removal

Hair removal be it shaving or laser treatments, come with a price tag. The choice of the method by any individual is influenced by its price too. An estimate on some of the hair removal prices are discussed below.

Threading Hair Removal Prices

An average beauty salon would charge anywhere from $ 10 to 20 for threading your eyebrows and upper lip.

Waxing Prices

Buying a waxing kit for home use can cost anywhere between $25 to $100 A single treatment at a beauty salon can set you back by $100 and up to $500 for a whole body wax.

Depilatory Hair Removal Prices

Costs about the same as waxing but it is most often done at home by purchasing a kit from the store.

Shaving and Trimming Prices

The cost of the shaving cream and the blades in case of a manual shaver is the only cost that is incurred when using this method to remove hair. If you are using an electric shaver and trimmer then the cost of the machine is the only initial investment.

Epilators Hair Removal Prices

As with the shaving machines, epilators are also one of the cost effective ways of removing hair. The initial cost of the epilator is the only expense but in the long run it is recovered with the use of the product.

Electrolysis Hair Removal Prices

The cost of electrolysis ranges from $50 – 250 per hour for a single area. It requires a minimum of one sitting per month and 18 such treatments to complete the procedure. So that adds up to $1000 or more for treating a small area such as face. But since it is a permanent solution to hair growth, the total costs even out in the long run.

Laser Hair Removal Prices

A quicker alternative to electrolysis and less painful, laser treatments are the most expensive hair removal methods so far. Each sitting costs about $400 - $500 and with 6 sittings in a year, adds up to $3000 for a small area such as face. Further, this requires regular maintenance as compared to electrolysis and hence is a lot more expensive in all aspects.
