I get a lot of razor bumps on my legs and so I want to try laser hair removal to see if that will fix my problem. I know it won't be cheap, but what is the cost of laser hair removal? Is there any way to tell how many laser hair treatments I will probably need before commiting to several treatments up front?

The Cost of Laser Hair Removal in Richmond, Virginia
The cost of laser hair removal is dependent on a number of factors. The location on the body, the type of practice (physician's office versus medispa), and the type of laser used. In our practice the price ranges from $100 for a single small facial area to $750 for legs. Please be aware that most areas require mutiple treatments to completely remove the hair.

It all depends on the hair density we usually do a patch test to give a quote but it could start from $150 per area. It also depends on the practice and the city that you live on.

Prices vary widely from clinic to clinic. Depending on your location, the practicioner, and the area of your body you want treated, the price can change. It is best to go in for a consultation to determine an exact cost.
The cost of laser hair removal
Laser hair removal price is dependant on the amount of time needed to treat the desired area. Larger areas and dense hair need more and longer treatments. The larger the area or more hair to be removed the more expensive it is. Laser hair removal is generally sold in packages of treatments since the average area takes many treatments for a good result. Our practice sells packages of 8 treatments with free touch ups to the area over 2 years. This ensures the maximum result to the area. Prices of the package can range from $400 to $1500.

The pricing for laser hair removal depends on multiple factors. 1) area to be treated 2) size of specific area 3) laser that will be used- as some lasers can treat much faster than others. 4) if there are any special risk factors that could slow you down and/ or add risk and potential complications - like tattoos. 5) who will be performing the hair removal- the doctor or the physician assistant or laser technician . good luck

Getting Laser Hair Removal solves the bumps problem
We price Laser Hair Removal by the area. The uncertain thing is how many treatments you will need. Therefore, I usually recommend only paying for the treatments you need, not "package pricing."
The number needed can vary from person to person for the same area. The number can also vary from body part to body part within the same person. I have seen some patients be hair free in as few as 3 treatments and some who have taken over 10 treatments.
Cost of Laser Hair Removal
The cost of hair removal can vary depending on the area being treated and the Dr. or Spa that is doing the procedure. Most offices have specials on packages so you can save some money. I would recommend you call a few places in your area that offer hair removal and compare pricing. Please remember that cheaper isn't always the best route. I would find a office where a DR. is on staff. I would then have a consultation and make sure your a good canidate for the procedure.
Prices for laser hair removal ranges....
The price of laser hair removal has dropped considerably over the years. At my office, our current cost ranges from $700-$800 per treatment for laser hair removal of the legs (this price range includes laser hair removal of the bikini area as well, which normally costs around $200 on its own, per treatment).
Typically, 6-8 treatments are needed for optimal results for any laser hair removal treatment, so keep that in mind when looking into the procedure. We use the LightSheer Diode Laser to treat patients with light to medium skin tone, and the StarLux Laser on patients with light to dark skin tone.
As others have already mentioned on here, dark hair usually responds better to laser hair removal treatments than light or blonde hair.
Cost varies based on how large the areas for laser hair reduction
There are a number of factors that determine how much laser hair reduction costs. The size of the area is important. The larger the size, the more time it will take, and hence the more costly for you.
The ranges are large for pricing based on my research. For the face, it can range between $145 - $800 per treatment. For the legs, it ranges from $200 - $1000 per treatment.
When you buy a package you usually receive a discount between 10-20%. One thing to realize is not all lasers and intense pulse light systems are the same. You definitely want to go to a place that has the best. Otherwise you will be spending more than just your money but also your precious time if it doesn't work very well for you and you have to go in more than anticipated. It typically takes 5-6 treatments to reduce your hair to an amount that you desire or can tolerate. Also light hairs are exceedingly difficult to remove.
Consulting a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon would be something that I would recommend. We specialize in the face and are highly qualified to help you with this.
