post Post   Comments (4)  

Laser Hair Removal prices vary based on who is providing the service (an assistant, a nurse, or a doctor), what area is receiving treatment, and how much hair there is to remove.
    You may need four to five laser hair treatments for a given area. Treatments can be performed at a skin care center, at a spa, or by a plastic surgeon.

Typical costs:

  • Laser Hair Removal for underarms can typically cost $75-$150 for each treatment.
  • Laser Hair Removal for the bikini area can cost $75-$200 for each treatment.
  • Laser Hair Removal for back hair can cost $250-$500, depending on the person's height and amount of hair.

Shopping for laser hair removal:
  • A nurse at a skin care center may be the least expensive option. If you choose to go to a skin care center or a spa, ask whether a dermatologist is on-site supervising the clinicians or nurses in case of a burn.
  • You can also find a board certified physician by visiting the American Academy of Dermatology[1] or the American Society of Plastic Surgeons[2] .

It includes 8 treatments and a discounted maintenance treatment. It is going well so far, except that I did not notice any reduction on my upper lip, with 3 treatments left....

Area: Sideburns lip brows undearms legs bikiniProvider: ALC - West Hartford
Legs and underarms worthwhile, skip the rest. I was told hair would be gone in 6 tratments, so I bought 6 treatments with a "guarantee" that any regrowth would be treated for free for the next 2 years. It was only AFTER I paid they told me the treatment would not be effective on the fine light hair in the sideburn area... AND they could only do between and over brows - not underneath - too close to the eye. Bikini 3 years later I still have enough regrowth that I have to shave daily to avoid it getting itchy!!! The only worthwhile investments were my legs and underarms as I always got ingrown hairs from shaving, waxing and debilitory creams. No more ingrown hairs - still some hair regrowth, but much less painful to shave and no ingrown hairs or razor bumps.

Under Arms & Lower Legs
Amount: $1,500.00
Posted by: Morgan Allen in Vienna, VA.Posted: February 15th, 2011 04:02PM
Area: Under Arms & Lower LegsProvider: Laser Plus
I purchased a package for both under arms and lower legs. The package included 4 treatments of each. The underarm package was on special: 4 treatments @ $349 (reg. $510). The lower leg package cost $1080. Treatments range from 4 - 7 on average to be 100% effective. After laser treatments, electrolysis is recommended to "clean up." Each electrolysis cost about $70 per 45 minutes.
