The average cost of laser hair removal in the United States is $389, according to 2020 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, it’s important to note that this number does not represent the total cost of treatment and omits additional costs like facility fees, other related expenses, and regional price differences.
Factors that dictate the price of laser hair removal include:
- The areas you’d like to have treated.
- The number of sessions you need.
- The expertise of the person performing the procedure.
- The specific laser they choose to use.
Most insurance companies do not cover procedures like laser hair removal, but many private offices offer financing options.
How many treatments are needed for laser hair removal?
The number of treatments needed to remove hair from any area entirely will vary based on the individual patient and the laser used. At SKIN Vegan Med Spa, we use the Soprano ICE Platinum laser, an elite laser from the prestigious Alma Laser company.
Patients love Soprano ICE Platinum because most find themselves with smooth hairless skin in just six sessions. Soprano ICE Platinum is virtually painless and requires no downtime. Because laser hair removal works best on hairs actively in their growth cycle, multiple treatments are necessary for optimal results. Luckily, Soprano ICE Platinum works on all skin types (even tanned skin), so the treatment can be done anytime during the year. As soon as you want to start your journey to smooth, hair-free skin, we’ll be waiting for your call!
Are the results from laser hair removal permanent?
While technically, the results are permanent, it’s a bit more complex than a simple yes or no. When a laser heats the hair follicle, the heat kills the hair and the follicle, which means that the follicle can no longer grow hair. Therefore, that hair is permanently removed.
However, over some time, new hairs can grow from follicles that were in a dormant stage during your hair removal. If you see new hairs growing after you’ve completed your treatment cycle, it does not mean you’re starting all over; it simply means you might require a maintenance session. These are usually not needed more than once a year.
Where can you get hair removed from with laser hair removal?
With Soprano ICE Platinum, you can have hair removed from even the most sensitive areas of the body. The most common areas for laser hair removal are the legs, face, underarms, and bikini line/Brazilian area. However, if you have pesky unwanted hair in other places like the lower abdomen, buttocks, or toes, it can quickly and efficiently be removed. No area is off-limits.
