Laser hair removal is a newer technology that is very effective at removing hair from unwanted areas of your body. While laser hair treatment is commonly used on one's face, the procedure can also be performed on the following areas of your body: legs, arms, back, chin, upper lip, bikini line, and armpits. In essence, this procedure can be effective for almost any part of your body, with the exception of the uni-brow.
The area that you are targeting with the laser removal will effect greatly the cost of procedure, so it's very important to speak to you doctor up front and make sure he or she gives you a fair estimate of what they think it is going to take to get the hair removed to your satisfaction. Obviously, just getting a mustache removed is going to be much less costly (typically) than having your chin, upper lip, back, and legs done.
The other main factor that will determine the price of the procedure is the amount of visits that are required to complete the hair removal process. Typically, a person will require 3-8 total visits that are spaced out over a few months to get the desired results. The amount will vary greatly depending on the color of your hair, the thickness of your hair, and the area of skin that you are targeting.
So next time you meet with your doctor or dermatologist to discuss laser hair treatments, make sure you discuss the estimated costs, and do so in terms of how many visits to expect and overall costs, not just the price of a one-time procedure.
