Removing hair from the legs, face, underarms, arms and other bristly sections of the body can bend the wallet, especially if it’s done on a regular basis. Since hair removal for people who want smooth hairless skin is a regimented part of life, it may be challenging to choose between waxing and laser hair removal. Waxing involves spreading a resin-based wax mixture over a patch of hair and pulling the entire hair follicle from the root. Laser hair removal uses a laser beam to infiltrate the hair follicle and suppress hair re-growth. What’s the best process and what’s more economical?
Waxing is less costly per session, about $25-$80, depending on the size of the area of the body that’s getting waxed, but it only lasts between 2 – 6 weeks. It’s a procedure that has to be performed over and over again. Laser hair removal is a more permanent solution and delivers a more significant reduction in hair re-growth. It’s about $99 per session, which is more costly than waxing, but after about 6 sessions, hair growth should be drastically suppressed.
Although laser hair removal costs more per session, over time it will save you money compared to waxing. In a year, you will have spent about the same amount as the cost of waxing. In two years, you will have saved $600 and after 5 years you will have saved $2400.
Laser hair removal is ideal for individuals who want to liberate themselves from hair removal treatments. Inhibiting hair growth means eventually you won’t have to pay for laser hair removal at all. With waxing, the hair will continue to grow back and you’re never free from hair removal maintenance.
Although it’s rare, patients may experience redness, swelling or slight burning after laser hair removal. It subsides eventually, but it’s a temporary discomfort and well worth it, when you consider that after 6 treatments, you may not require another session. You’ll be hair free in areas where you don’t want hair to grow.
