How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost for Full Legs?

Laser Hair Removal Cost for Full Legs Depends on City and Provider

The cost for laser treatments varies from city to city, from provider to provider, and therefore you need to be careful when making your decision on where you go for your laser treatments. Laser hair removal is fairly common these days, and many people think they have the best laser or the best price to lure patients to them. In fact, laser hair removal is still an art in 2014 and sometimes it is best to make sure the person doing the procedure actually knows a little about what they are doing and that they will do more than open the “cookbook” that many centers now do to treat someone’s unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal needs to be individualized, and the person using the device needs an education in lasers to assure you of the result you want. Some centers will sell packages, some will offer discounts on certain treatment areas – and while all of this is fine, just make sure that you go the right provider – we in dermatology see too many adverse events when people try to skimp or when people have the wrong laser or settings used from people who are not educated.

Full Leg 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 $500-$700 for the full legs 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.

Cost of Laser Hair Removal to Legs Can Vary But Best to go to Trusted Providers

Laser hair removal prices vary across the board -- for legs, I have seen prices as low as $100/session to higher than $500/session.  Most, if not all, patients will require multiple treatments for a full treatment and for the results that are desired.

Here are some of the factors to consider: skin type, type of laser a provider has, experience of the provider, among others....

Most providers provide packages of 4-6 or even 8 sessions for a particular body area.  Purchasing packages can be one way to be cost-effective.   A better option to access cost-effective treatments by trusted, board certified providers includes checking zendybeauty where there are hundreds of top providers who provide laser hair removal services at affordable prices.

Laser hair removal legs

Laser hair removal on the legs can vary in price and speed safety and efficacy. Choosing the right laser for the right skin type is the key. We always tried to avoid packages as they do not allow for tailoring the laser hair removal to the patients needs. Too many times patients will get a unlimited package for one year deal at a spa and then it doesnt work despite getting many treatments because the laser is at the wrong settings to optimize the results. In addition, you do not benefit from lasers spaced too close together so the spa will limit the treatments in this way. So read the fine print when you get your price quotes. 1. What laser or lasers do they have to remove hair. 2. What is best for your skin type and hair type. 3. How often do you need to come in 4. How many treatments do you expect .  If you can find a dermatologist office that offers laser hair removal like ours does then it may be worth your time and money to see a specialist in hair and skin.

Cost of laser hair removal

Beware of laser hair removal prices that are TOO low.  There are many low priced lasers that simply don't work, therefore, the prices are lower than you would expect to pay. On the other hand, the very best lasers have more power and a larger spot size. The large spot size allows the laser energy to reach the root of the hair even when it is deep. It also allows for a faster treatment. I my practice, we use top of the line lasers that work very fast and are equipped not to need a cool down time, so we can charge less and still be profitable
Look for physician owned and operated laser hair removal centers that are truly medical facilities. Also be certain a laser center has multiple laser as no single frequency works for all skin  types.

Cost for laser hair removal to legs

Costs are intensely variable with laser hair removal. There are many places that literally could charge you $100 for a full treatment to the legs, which in no way would be a full treatment. Offices that are run and overseen by physicians will have higher pricetags, but better results, safety, treatments, etc. My office charges a flat hourly rate of $500 per hour, so if it's less than that, you pay less, more than that, you pay more. A good full leg treatment should take about 45-60 minutes average. Buyer beware with laser hair removal I always say. Cheap treatments are just that - cheap for a reason.
