We all love to save a dollar, especially when it comes to our beauty needs. Facials, nails, hair care, any type of self care costs money and adds up quickly. With rising costs of gas, I dread the thought of driving across town to have a service done. Lucky for all of us beauty mavens, we have at-home beauty devices right at our fingertips. When it comes to laser hair removal, you would be surprised at how expensive it is in a clinical setting, and you can use the same exact technology at home for a fraction of the price!
At-home laser is possible with Tria’s 4X Hair Removal Laser and Precision Hair Removal Laser. I did some digging around to find the latest prices of clinical laser hair removal, and it is definitely a huge beauty investment! Let’s take a look at some of the common areas that people laser, and how much it costs compared to Tria’s laser devices, which start at $329.
Average cost of clinical laser hair removal
In the year 2020, the average cost of clinical laser hair removal with no other related expenses was $389, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. I am assuming this average is based on one session, because most people will need four to six sessions for a complete hair removal on the areas that are treated.
Cost for the face
According to Anna Guanche, M.D., board-certified dermatologist, the lower face and chin area can cost $250 per session. With 4 to 6 sessions needed, that total cost can go up to $1500. Keep in mind that touch ups are commonly needed, so you’d have to go back to pay for more sessions on top of the initial investment.
Cost for legs
Full legs are obviously a much larger area to cover, and will be very costly for those wanting that smooth and silky look. Dr. Guanche estimates that an area such as the back or legs can cost $600 per session. That’s $3600 for 6 sessions! You could go on a really nice vacation with the savings you will have going with at-home hair removal.
Cost for underarms
As we saw earlier, the facial area can cost about $250 per treatment, the underarms can cost around $175 to $225 per treatment session. That’s a cost of up to $1350 for six sessions. Imagine doing this yourself in just a few minutes, once every two weeks with Tria’s laser, and then treating other areas as you wish.
Cost for laser on the bikini line
This is a popular area since many people hate to shave their bikini line. Unfortunately, those looking for a full Brazilian style hair removal treatment will have to consult a dermatologist for treatments. The Tria laser is not clinically tested for areas such as the pubic hair area. We can, however, suggest trying the laser out on the areas outside of the panty line for a nice smooth, hair-free look. For about $250, you could go to the clinic for the bikini line laser hair removal for one session. But, since you’ll need up to 6 sessions, that will cost you $1,500.
Total costs for clinical laser sessions
Now that you have seen all of the potential clinical costs for just those 4 areas: Face, legs, underarms and bikini, are you ready to spend up to $7,950? If you have the means to spend that much going to a dermatologist for these treatments, that is entirely up to you where you choose to spend your money. For the rest of us that would rather spend thousands on vacations and new rims for our car, we have the luxury of treating our self at home!
