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?

Laser hair removal treatment cost - $45 per area for many areas - NEVER Pay for a package up front!!
Some laser centers might answer that laser hair removal is $79 per month. I think it is wrong to offer cookie cutter packages and financing for laser hair removal. People respond differently and treatments should be paid for one at a time. Many people spend much more than they need to spend if they elect not to pay for individual treatments. Not everyone requires the same number of treatments. In my laser hair removal center, do not offer laser hair removal packages and we never ask for payments of multiple treatments up front. On average, people need between 5-8 treatments for complete clearance of hair, although very light hair will generally not respond well to laser hair removal. Some offices will often provide a test spot during a consultation to see how one responds.
A large spot size (18mm) means deeper penetration and a more effective treatment.. it also means a faster treatment. So, although the lasers we use in our office are more expensive than many lasers on the market, the treatments are much faster and we are able to charge less for laser hair removal treatments while still being profitable.
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.

Laser Hair removal prices and cost in Richmond, VA
When considering laser hair removal, it is important to remember that just because an office is cheaper or is offering Groupon discounts, it does not mean that it is the place for you. I have treated patients who have been scarred by hair removal lasers. Make certain you choose somewhere with the new technology and that the laser operators have been properly trained. Don't be afraid to ask them their credentials.
In Richmond, VA most proces start at around $100 per session from small areas like the upper lip, $250 for a full Brazilian and $450 for full legs. Most treatments are repeated every 4-6 weeks for several sessions. After that, an occasional touch up may be needed in the upcoming years.
I hope this is helpful.
Laser Hair Removal Cost
Also, the cost will vary with where the procedure is performed. Med spas that do not have a physician on site will likely be cheaper. Whereas, treatments that are personally overseen by a board certified plastic surgeon tend to be more expensive. Remember, when trying to determine the value of a service that you are also paying for the expertise of the individual performing the treatments, not just the machine.
