Laser hair removal has grown massively in popularity over the last few years. While the appeal of superior hair removal results and daily convenience are obvious, it is still perceived by some as being quite expensive and a bit of a luxury.
However, compared to traditional forms of hair removal, laser hair removal could actually save a considerable amount of money in the long term.
Cost of underarm laser hair removal:
At Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre, based in Northamptonshire, the price of underarm hair removal with their high-tech ND Yag laser machine is £85 per session or £425 for a complete course of 6 treatments.
Cost of underarm waxing:
The average cost of waxing the underarms is around £10 a time, but the difference is that this needs to be repeated every 4 weeks as the results are only short term. That equates to 13 waxes a year, which would cost £130.
Over the long term, the investment in laser hair removal really starts to show dividends:
Doesn’t sound so expensive now does it? Over a lifetime, that saving alone could pay for several holidays!
Leg Waxing vs Laser Hair Removal
The savings on larger areas are even more significant.
A course of 5 laser hair removal treatments for the legs is £1,500. Waxing the full legs costs around £35, which equates to £455 a year. Over a 10 year period, regular leg waxes amount to £4,550 which makes laser hair removal a very attractive £3,050 cheaper, growing to £7,550 in 20 years.
Laser hair removal could just turn out to be one of your better financial investments!
Other Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
There are other long term benefits to laser hair removal too.
Firstly, the quality of result is superior. Bear in mind also that waiting between waxes means allowing the hair to regrow, where laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction treatment; so the result is smoother in terms of the finish too.
Secondly, repeated waxing treatment is likely to result in ingrowing hairs, which is when the hair grows back into the skin. Most commonly this occurs in areas where there the hair is thick and/or curly, like on men or in the bikini line, which can be particularly uncomfortable. Ingrown hairs leave the legs blotchy, causing rashes, itching or even localised infection. Laser hair removal is actually an excellent known cure for ingrown hairs as it destroys the follicle.
So laser hair removal stacks up on price and on quality too.
