Why Laser Hair Removal Cost is Worth Every Cent

Why Laser Hair Removal Cost is Worth Every Cent

Is the Price or Cost Worth Doing Laser hair Removal?

The first thing most people usually ask is, “What is the price for laser hair removal?” Laser hair removal cost in Pittsburgh varies widely.

You also want to know if it’s legit, risky and is it worth the time and effort. Waxing really hurts and the hair grows right back. Shaving is never-ending. The ingrown hairs and the surrounding irritation is a pain.

For most people, the short-term laser hair removal cost is well worth it if you carefully compare the total cost of the alternatives. To put it in perspective, just consider the cost of a lifetime of razors, blades and waxing. When you break down the cost of shaving, it can average a dollar per shave for the Gillette Fusion Pro Glide Power razor.

Consumers are very loyal to the Schick and Gillette brands and will pay premium prices for their razors and blades. Waxing costs can average $30 to $80 per treatment. All of these costs add up quickly and are considerable over the course of a year.

Laser hair removal is the second most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the whole country. Over a half of a million laser hair removal treatments were done last year. Most patients feel that it is well worth it.

The following link from Vogue gives insightful personal details from the author about the worthiness of laser hair removal.


How Happel Laser is Different from Other Laser Hair Removal Offices

  1. Happel Laser really is the most affordable and is the most experienced laser hair removal office in Pittsburgh. One reason is that we don’t push or even offer laser hair removal packages. One of our patients recently wrote in her Google review, “If you have to sign a contract for a medical treatment, there is an issue”. There are no expensive binding contracts at Happel Laser.
  2. At Happel Laser, you pay for each treatment at the time of your medical laser service. There is no confusion.
  3. Let’s get more specific. We don’t offer credit cards on the spot like the laser chains. Doesn’t that tell you something about how our professional medical office operates?

There is no confusion about our cost per treatment. Trying to figure out the cost per treatment at a big laser chain is like deciphering a Picasso print. After you subtract the fake deals and “discounts” from the huge front loaded price at our competitors, you will not be able to calculate and compare the cost per treatment.

They are purposely confusing and convoluted. They hope you will buy on impulse.


You Are Our Patient, Not a Guest and Not a Client Like at the Big Chains

We are a private doctor’s office and only prescribe what you need. You don’t need a package of nine treatments, which you will not complete. Ninety per cent of people will see permanent hair reduction after an average of four to six sessions. Your total laser hair removal cost will be less.

You pay as you go at Happel Laser. You save money by not paying for what you will not use or will not need.

Individual pricing depends on the area treated, the amount of hair and time involved to treat your area of concern. During our free consultation, you will get a fee quote and can proceed with a test patch or with your first treatment if you wish. During that consultation visit, you can get a feel and watch how we practice medicine.

As Yogi Berra once said, “You can observe a lot by just watching”.

Are Home Hair Removal Treatments Worth It?

If they were, wouldn’t everyone be doing it?

Some people want to save money and do it themselves. Laser hair removal is not for Do-It-Yourselfers.

Home systems are not as powerful as compared to commercial laser systems used in physician’s offices. These home systems are less effective and more risky. You will spend money on home hair removal systems for lousy results. In inexperienced hands, you could damage your skin forever or get serious burns.

My medical advice is simply don’t do it. It is like those creams for spider veins that many people see advertised in women’s magazines. Some women figure it’s worth a try. If you would only have done a little research first, you could have saved the money and the aggravation.


Laser hair removal done in a trusted and experienced physician’s office is worth it according to our patients. Read our reviews and look at our ratings. Discover the answer for yourself with a little research about the actual laser hair removal cost per treatment. Research the laser companies and how people feel about them before you commit your time and money.

Have you ever wondered what would it feel like not having to shave or wax?

It’s hip to be bare.
