Affordable Laser Hair Removal – Easy-On-The-Purse
Even though laser hair removal has been around for years, it is still a service which is costly at salons. The price tag on hair removal may be on the decline, but sessions can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Laser hair treatments cost more since multiple sessions are needed for permanent results.
I want affordable laser hair removal, but I’m on a budget…how do I get the most value for money?
- If you live near a big city like New York or Los Angeles, you will probably find that laser treatments in the city are far more affordable than in smaller centers. You also have a wider choice of practitioners to choose from. Since you will only need to get treatments every few months, if you can get to a major city, do it! A laser treatment for legs in a major urban center can cost under one hundred dollars, while the same procedure in a smaller town may cost hundreds. Just be sure that the practitioner you choose is reliable.
- Some salons offer guarantees which allow you come back and get free sessions if you do not experience long-term hair removal after a few sessions. Try to find a salon that offers such a guarantee and be sure to read all the fine print to make sure you understand it’s terms and conditions. These return sessions could save some money.
- Some salons and spas offer long-term plans that can save you money. Basically, you pay in advance for a specific number of treatments, and they offer a type of volume discount so that all the sessions cost less than the same number of sessions paid for individually. Of course, you have to be absolutely sure that you are ready to commit.
What is the most affordable – waxing, shaving, electrolysis or laser hair removal on a budget?
Even with these tips, you will find that you pay much more for laser hair removal than for waxing or shaving. Still, as more salons and spas adopt this as a means of controlling hair, prices plummet. In some cities, prices for electrolysis and for laser hair removal are about the same.
Should I pay more for a good professional?
In the opinion of Hairchick, if you are going to invest in laser hair removal, with all its risks you should be prepared to spend a little more to get a professional who knows what they’re doing. If you want something more affordable, then consider other methods of hair removal that offer long-lasting – but not permanent – means of hair removal. I personally use the depilatory Revitol, as it is totally fuss free and contains a growth inhibitor to slow regrowth.
Are there home laser kits?
Yes. The good news is affordable at-home laser hair removal kits come at a low cost and they do remove hair successfully, but unfortunately they may not get rid of hair permanently with the product alone.
