Range per Body Area of Cost for Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair removal is a laser treatment to get rid of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal treatments have become increasingly popular since 1990s. This treatment is done by passing a laser beam through the skin which affects the dark pigment- Melanin present in the hair, which in turn results in shedding of hair.  As per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the national average cost for laser hair removal comes around $429. The cost of the laser hair removal treatment varies considerably depending on the below mentioned factors.

  • Size of the treatment area
  • Time required for laser treatment
  • The person performing the procedure; whether a doctor or someone else
  • The part of the country, where you are undergoing the treatment

Hair growth varies with persons and it is not that easy to estimate the number of treatments required to completely get rid of unwanted hair or the exact cost of doing the treatment. First you consult a specialist and identify your particular hair problem and the number of treatment sessions needed. Generally a minimum of 6 to 8sessions are needed for the successful completion of the procedure. This is because only around 20% of the hair can be removed in one session. This might also vary depending on the density, thickness, and strength of hair growing in the particular treatment area of the body. In India a single laser treatment session costs between three and ten thousand Indian rupees. So the total charge might come anywhere between 12,000 and 50,000 Indian rupees. Only a qualified practitioner can say the accurate amount needed, examining the treatment area and the pattern of hair growth. Today popular clinics such as Kaya and VLCC offer effective bouquet packages for a reasonable price of twenty and thirty thousand rupees
