Laser Facial Hair Removal Is More Affordable Than You Might Think

For ladies, facial hair can be a major bummer. It seems like the harder you try to get rid of it, the more obvious it becomes.

If you’re insecure about your chin stubble or dark sideburns, stop messing around with hair removal options that allow those frustrating strands to grow back. Opting for laser facial hair removal will be the best decision you make, and it’s more affordable than you might think! Here’s a breakdown of the prices you can expect at a reputable laser clinic where treatments are performed by licensed medical professionals.

Size of the Area Being Treated

The first thing that will be considered when determining the cost of your complete facial laser hair removal treatment is the size of the area being treated. Some people look to get their whole face treated, while others might only choose their chin or upper lip. This will make a big difference in the price. Here’s a look at what you can expect:

Average Cost Per Laser Session

Entire Face: $250 to $650

Upper Lip: $100 to $300

Chin: $100 to $300

Unibrow: $100 to $300

Sideburns: $150 to $350

Skin and Hair Type

The next factors that can add to the cost of your facial laser hair removal treatments are your skin and hair type. Typically, if you have fair skin and light facial hair, you’ll require more laser treatments. The same goes for those with darker skin and dark facial hair, as the ideal combination is fair skin and dark hair. Lasers can target those with hair and skin color that contrast more easily than those that don’t. Without that contrast, the laser clinic might need to use a special laser or opt for more treatments, which will add to your overall cost.

Payment Options

Most laser clinics will offer you payment options so that you can do what works best for you and your financial situation. Most likely, you’ll be able to pay per laser treatment; however, this will be the least cost-effective. Buying individual laser treatments is the most expensive option and is not usually recommended, as you will need an average of eight treatments to get the job done. Also, those who choose this option are less likely to go back to the laser clinic within the time frame required to continue laser treatments and still be successful. This is an issue because waiting too long can sometimes get in the way of the process and may trigger the need for additional treatments.

Laser clinics also usually offer packages, such as three laser treatments for one price and five for another more cost-effective price. While buying a package such as these are great for saving money, there’s no way to tell exactly how many laser treatments you’ll need until you’ve already had a few. So, you will likely end up buying additional laser treatments later on, either at a higher price individually or by buying another package.

A third option is to buy a package that offers unlimited laser treatments. While not all laser clinics offer this, it’s often your best bet. It comes with a lifetime guarantee, so you’ll be set for life if your facial hair ever starts to sprout up again. This option also allows you to get treatments done without worrying about how many you have left or how many you’ll need to purchase.

Skin Condition

If you find that your skin could use a little more attention than just hair removal, this would be the time to do it. Laser skin rejuvenation can be performed in addition to your laser hair removal treatments, and it can target skin imperfections such as scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It’s also a great way to get rid of any acne scars or blemishes you have so that you can ensure your skin will be flawless upon completion of your treatments. This is an option you might want to consider, as it would be cheaper than getting it done separately in the future.
