How Much Can Laser Hair Removal Cost?

When it comes to removing unwanted body hair at home, you’ve only got a few options at your disposal. The most common ones are shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis. You can even apply harsh creams that dissolve hair.

The above options only offer short-term results, and some of them can be both unpleasant, painful, and/or time-consuming. There is a long-lasting option for getting rid of unwanted hair: laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments offered by Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz in Kansas City, MO. 

Premier Vein & Body’s triple board-certified medical director, Dr. Craig Schwartz, and his team of laser specialists use the state-of-the-art Sciton Profile laser system for all laser hair removal sessions.

Laser Hair Removal Overview

At Premier Vein & Body, the process of laser hair removal involves the innovative Sciton Profile laser system. Unlike other laser hair removal providers, we use a dual-wavelength approach for quick and effective treatment of unwanted body hair.

The reason for the dual-wavelength solution is two-fold. First, it enables our team of laser specialists to complete each treatment session uniformly, as the laser system is computer-controlled rather than manually-controlled. Secondly, we can treat larger areas (like the legs and back) much quicker compared to other laser hair removal technologies that only have a single wavelength. 

The Sciton Profile uses an intense, focused light that pulses the pigment in each hair follicle. Once the light gets absorbed by the hair, it commences a process that causes it to die. Premier Vein & Body’s laser hair reduction works well on all skin types and tones.

Average Cost of Laser Hair Removal

At Premier Vein & Body, one of the questions we often get asked about our laser hair removal treatment is, how much does it cost? The answer will depend on several factors (more on that in a moment).

If you want to know an average cost, the WebMD website notes that the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) puts the average price of laser hair removal at $285 per treatment session.  It is important to note that this is not a direct quote for treatment and there are many factors that influence the final cost for laser hair removal. 

Several treatment sessions are often required for clients to achieve their desired results. The reason for that is simple: hair grows at different rates. Our clients typically notice significant results after three sessions. Thanks to our dual-wavelength laser hair removal technology, most clients only need four to five treatment sessions, rather than the typical six to eight.

Factors That Influence Laser Hair Removal Costs

Arguably the most significant factors that can influence the cost of laser hair reduction, apart from the individual treatment session cost, is the number of sessions needed. As you can imagine, the more sessions you need, the greater the price.

Another factor is the treatment area. A smaller area will be quicker to treat in each session, so each session’s price will be lower than if a larger area is treated. Multiple treatment areas will also impact the total cost for laser hair removal.

Other factors that can influence the cost of laser hair reduction include the cosmetic center that you use, the location, and whether you get offered a discounted rate for pre-booking several treatment sessions in advance.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you experience unwanted hair growth in some regions of your body or are tired of time-consuming activities, such as shaving, plucking, or waxing, then you are a perfect candidate for laser hair removal! At Premier Vein & Body, we only use the Sciton Profile laser system due to its efficient hair removal techniques, comfort, and safety.

The Sciton Profile boasts reduced melanin absorption, making it perfect for clients of all skin types – including dark tones.

Of course, there are some cases where we don’t recommend that our clients opt for laser hair removal. Examples include women that are pregnant or breastfeeding or clients with certain skin conditions. Your eligibility will be discussed at length during your consultation.
