What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that semi-permanently removes hair from the body. Dr. Schalit and the team fire a laser at the root of the hair, heating up the pigment compounds it contains. This process damages the surrounding follicle, inactivating the biological machinery that produces hair, preventing them from coming back in the future.
Cosmetic surgeons consider laser hair removal a “semi-permanent” hair removal procedure. After treatment, hair growth reduces dramatically, and any remaining hairs often appear much lighter and thinner.
Average Cost for Laser Hair Removal
The latest data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests that the average cost of laser hair removal is $287 per session. However, this figure does not include related expenses that the clinic might include in your fee, such as aftercare. You may also require additional sessions to remove all unwanted hair.
