Laser hair removal requires multiple treatment visits spaced out over about six months, so you might wonder whether it’s worth it. Patients who look forward to being hair-free for life think so. To appreciate the expense and need for repeat treatments, it will help to understand the science behind laser hair removal.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution because it doesn’t just get rid of hair, it changes the hair follicle so that no new hair will be produced. With a beam of high-intensity light, the special laser created specifically for this purpose, delivers controlled and focused heat to the pigment inside the hair follicle, destroying it while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
Where each hair follicle is in the hair growth cycle during treatment will affect how much heat that follicle is able to absorb. Less heat means less likelihood of being made non-functioning. That is why repeat laser hair removal sessions are needed – each follicle must be targeted during its growth cycle, and follicles are not all on the same schedule. Over time, and after repeat treatments, each follicle will be encountered at the right time. That also means that with each session, your hair growth will diminish.
Where can you get laser hair removal?
It’s possible to get laser hair removal on just about any part of the body or face. Women love the freedom of being hair-free on the legs, bikini line, arms and underarms. Men find laser hair removal a solution to daily shaving – yes you can have laser hair removal on the face and jaw. In fact, additional treatment areas for laser hair removal include, but are not limited to, the buttocks, chest, back, neck, chin and ears.
How much is laser hair removal in Fort Lauderdale?
Now that you understand how laser hair removal works, why you need multiple treatment sessions and that it’s available for nearly any part of the body, we can delve more specifically into cost.
Each treatment can range from as low as $50 for small areas like the upper lip to several thousands of dollars for the full body. Clearly, laser hair removal cost will depend on which and how many areas you are treating and the number of treatments you need. Fortunately, laser hair removal has become one of the most affordable medical spa treatments for anyone interested in permanently removing unwanted hair.
As a rule of thumb, most individuals will require a series of 6-10 laser hair removal treatments for complete removal of body hair or facial hair. Cost-effective package pricing can help lower your total cost, although some patients choose to pay as they go for individual treatments. But think about it – if you are committed to successful laser hair removal treatment, choosing a package won’t just save money, it might help you keep those appointments!
Laser hair removal success
Two additional important factors to consider are the technology being used and the technician using it.
Experience and equipment matter when it comes to the operation of a laser. An inexperienced laser technician can undertreat an area, offering subpar results or worse yet, overtreat with improper settings, causing injury to the patient.
For the best results, treatments should be performed by medical practitioners with the latest laser hair removal technology like the Candela GentleMax Pro. It’s the gold standard in hair removal systems and is safe for all skin types because it provides specific wavelengths of energy for a darker or lighter skin tone. Although possibly less expensive, light-based devices like IPL are not as effective at permanently removing hair and require indefinite “maintenance” sessions. Isn’t the hassle of getting rid of unwanted hair what you were trying to avoid? Not only that, but these maintenance sessions can also end up increasing the cost of your initial investment!
At Ageless Medical, we utilize the latest laser hair removal technology, the Candela GentleMax Pro, and all our laser medical providers have at least eight years of experience removing hair. If you think that technology and experience come with a higher cost, think again. Our pricing is always less than the large chain laser hair removal companies – even with their 70% off promotions – and we don’t require an upfront contract.
