The thought of never having to shave your armpits again probably has you smiling, but does laser hair removal’s steep upfront cost keep you returning to the razor aisle? Here are two reasons that might encourage you to reconsider.
How Much Is Shaving and Waxing Really Costing You?
Consider how much you spend on hair removal over the course of a year. You have to purchase the razors and the shaving cream, or you have to buy wax strips or schedule bikini waxes. The average person spends between $120 and $140 on disposable razors per year, and that’s for the cheap kind that you have to toss after just a few uses. That estimate doesn’t include shaving cream, which the average person pays up to $144 on per year. So conservatively, you probably spend about $200 per year on hair removal. That amount may not sound too bad considering what you spend on other things, but how long have you been shaving? Ten years? Twenty? And how many more years will you continue to shave every day?
Waxing isn’t any cheaper. In fact, let’s say you only get a bikini wax twice per month at an average cost of $65, or $780 a year. Over the course of 15 years, you will have spent $11,700. Still think laser hair removal is costly?
How Much Time Do You Spend Shaving and Waxing?
Shaving is a hassle, especially during warmer months. Last-minute trips to the beach require 30 minutes of prep time in the bathroom with your leg propped on the toilet. It’s no fun, and this time adds up. You’ve probably already spent two or more weeks of your life doing it.
Although waxing doesn’t suck up as much of your time as shaving, the cost is significantly higher.
By ditching the razors and the trips to the aesthetician, you’ll save a significant amount of both money and time. The average cost of laser hair removal is $235 per session, depending on the location and the size of the area being treated. The number of treatments you require will depend on several factors, but the number averages between 5 and 10 at about 20 minutes each, so complete hair removal of a small area will cost between $1,175 and $2,350. But keep in mind that laser hair removal is permanent, so this cost is for a lifetime being hair free.
Some laser clinics ask you to return once a year for touchups. This will increase your cost.
