Shedding Laser light on Permanent Laser Hair Removal Cost

Laser Hair Removal is Incredible

What most people want to know first is what is the permanent laser hair removal cost?  Cost and convenience (location of that service) are two key factors when purchasing any service or item. Like everything else, permanent laser hair removal cost is what the market will bear. Advertising results in less discriminating shoppers paying more. Laser removal growth is exploding.

Here is an incredible testimonial from one of our patients. From her enthusiasm it’s easy to understand how really incredible laser hair removal is at our facility.

Without doing a healthy amount of research before having laser hair removal, you may seriously be burned. That means literally as well as with the cost. This field is totally unregulated. If someone gets skin burns, it is usually not the fault of the laser. It’s more likely the person using the laser.

It is more profitable for the laser company to sell laser hair removal in packages. Packages cost more for you if you break it down. If you buy a package, that eliminates you quitting if you are dissatisfied for any reason.  Packages force you to keep coming back.

Everyone wants a discount and no one wants to pay “sticker price”. However, that big “discount” always involves a package “deal”. This so-called discount has already been figured into your final cost. Words can be deceiving. Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?

Your final cost includes that extremely expensive barrage of radio advertising that you constantly hear on all of the most popular radio station whenever you are riding in your car.  Marketing has become a science in today’s world. Beware of the total permanent laser hair removal cost. Watch out for hidden fees in any contract that spas and chains make you sign.

That “New Car Smell” When Signing up for Laser Hair Removal is Intoxicating

For the purpose of this article, let’s bypass the glitz and glamour of laser hair removal. Let’s go straight to the nuts and bolts of the industry. Just like when buying a new car, try to ignore the breathtaking new car smell of the leather and that beautiful shine on everything. Who doesn’t want to stop shaving forever?

Be careful of the excitement you feel when you think of that possibility. The thought of being hair free can be intoxicating. Think about it long and hard before you sign any long-term contract.

Remember there is no “return policy” after signing a binding contract for laser hair removal. Most national chains and med spas require that you sign a contract for up to nine sessions. They advertise constantly on the radio. They offer low interest loans. Does that sound right to you for a medical procedure?

What if that facility goes out of business like a franchise in St. Louis or American Laser Center Skincare recently did. Do a search on American Laser Skincare. The affect on all those thousands of people who prepaid thousands of dollars was disastrous and shocking.

They are totally out of luck and lost a lot of their hard-earned money. What if you lose your job? You still have to pay for the whole package. It is a legally binding contract. What if it doesn’t work for you or you don’t like it? You still have to pay for the whole package. There will not be a refund.

Research Permanent Laser Hair Removal Cost Before you Sign a Contract

To be well informed, you must know the lessons learned from people throughout this city and the country who have had bad experiences or results. You must spend some time doing internet searches to find the truth.

It’s all there on the internet but you have to take some time to find the truth. The more you dig, the more of an informed consumer you will be before beginning this process. It is well worth it.


After researching all your options, consider a true medical facility for your hair removal. We do not push packages. We are an accredited physician’s office and not a spa or an unregulated national laser hair franchise.
