Some people aren’t happy with having to regularly tweeze, shave, and wax to remove unwanted hair and want a long-term solution. And that’s where laser hair removal can help.
What’s more, it’s cost-effective. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, treatments average around $287 per session, with some going as high as $1,500.
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.

Factors That Influence Final Cost
The price of laser hair removal varies according to the treatment area, the experience of the professional carrying it out, and the time it takes.
Thus, the final cost will alter depending on:
- Who you get your laser hair removal from. It is wise to get your treatments done by experienced professionals to ensure your safety as well as the efficacy of your results.
- Your geographical area. The cost of living in your area impacts local pricing for goods and services.
- Your treatment area. Removing hair from the upper lip, for instance, is a shorter procedure than eliminating it from your legs and back, and typically comes with a lower price tag
