How much does laser hair reduction cost and is it worth it?

Laser Updated October 26, 2020

On the fence about whether to get laser or IPL permanent hair reduction? You might be concerned about the cost and if it’s actually worth getting.

Laser hair removal is a process that uses pulses of concentrated light directed at the pigment in our hair follicles. This light creates heat that destroys the hair follicle causing decreased hair growth with every treatment.

How much does laser cost?

Laser or IPL hair reduction might not be the cheapest hair removal solution when you are in the moment, but it is a worthy investment if you are 100% sure you won’t want hair to grow back in that area. Costs can vary from salon to salon, at Essential Beauty prices start from only $15 for underarms!

How many sessions will I need?

The hair all over our body is constantly shredding and regrowing at different stages of the hair growth cycle. At any given time, the hairs on our body will be a mixture of actively growing, and hairs which are about to shed to make way from new growth, which look the same to the naked eye. Laser and IPL will only be effective on hairs which are actively growing. Because of this, with each session you will begin to notice your hair become β€˜patchier’ in the treated area. Multiple sessions allow all hairs actively growing to be treated successfully.
