Upper Lip Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal pricing depends on several factors. These include the following:

technology used
area targeted

Even the city in which you're located can be a factor. Usually, you can expect to pay about $70-$80 for the upper lip in Toronto, Ontario, and this is for one session. It is difficult to say how many sessions you'll need. Some patients have been happy with just 3 sessions, while others require 6-8 or even more. Discounts may be available if you buy a package of treatments.

Ask for a test patch to be performed before you proceed with your treatments. This will help you see how your skin reacts to the technology used. Your sessions should be performed on a schedule for the best results.

Thank you for your question. Our office treats a majority of ethnic skin patients, including Indian skin. A 1064 yag with Cryogen cooling would be best including the Candela or Cynosure lasers. Always be sure to be treated under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with expertise laser surgery and in treating ethnic skin. I hope this helps.

Best Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Thank you for your question. A wide variety of medical lasers and light systems are used to remove unwanted hair, however most lasers are not effective for all skin types and hair colors. The Elos laser hair removal system is designed for permanent hair reduction by combining both optical and radiofrequency energy to deliver satisfying, longer lasting results with less discomfort than previous laser systems. All skin and all hair colors including gray and blonde hair are effectively treated. Faces, backs, arms, legs, faces, and bikini lines can be treated including those individuals with darkly pigmented skin. Treatments are administered every 4 weeks and generally 3 to 5 treatments are sufficient. The cost will be determined in a consultation with your doctor. Best of luck!
